‘Too Hot to Handle’: Fans Are Convinced Francesca Farago and Harry Jowsey Broke the Rules on the Final Night

In the new Netflix reality dating series, Too Hot to Handle, Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago could not keep their hands off each other, despite the strict rules forbidding any sexual contact of any kind. The couple cost the house more money than anyone, and they were able to earn some of the cash back on the final night. Many fans believe the two did break the rules but think production “covered it up” to give the series a more satisfying ending.

Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago broke the rules on ‘Too Hot to Handle’

Almost immediately after arrival, Australian-native Harry Jowsey and Vancouver-based Francesca Farago set their sights on each other. The two were so sexually attracted to one another that they admittedly cried once artificial intelligence machine Lana informed the castmates of the no-touching rule.

They were the first to break the rules when they shared a $3,000 kiss, upsetting some of their housemates. Not wanting anyone to be mad at him, he lied and claimed Francesca instigated it, much to the chagrin of the Instagram model.


Therefore, she made out with her best friend in the house, Haley Cureton, out of spite to lose more money for everyone. After attempting to move on to another guy in the house, Kelz Dyke, the Vancouver-native realized her feelings for Harry and decided to get back with him.

The two unlocked the private suite, where they had sex, resulting in a severe $20,000 punishment, and performed another sexual act on each other, this one amounting to $6,000. However, the producers gave the couple one last chance to earn the money back for the house pot.

On the final night, the two had to spend the night together in the private suite without any touching to up the prize money. First, Harry attempted to resist temptation by handcuffing himself to a chair, but Francesca chased him around the suite.

Then, the couple laid on the bed and picked rose petals to see if they should have sex or not. Finally, the Australian-native jumped into the tub with a barely clad Francesca watching him.

As the camera panned out, Harry made presumably sexual noises, leading fans to believe the two did the dirty. Surprisingly, Lana announced the two were able to keep their hands off each other, and the remaining 10 cast members took home their share of $75,000.

However, many fans think the couple were sexually intimate that night and believe the producers covered it up to give the show a better ending.

In a Reddit thread, one user explained their “conspiracy theory” that Harry and Francesca broke the rules as the two were incredibly touchy the entire season.

They picked rose petals, which proves to the fan that they at least had intentions of becoming intimate that night. Additionally, Francesca commented the next morning about how “lit” their night was and noted it “the most fun I’ve had this entire month,” which is an odd thing to say if nothing happened.

She also defensively called her housemates “negative Nancys” and claimed they were “hating on my relationship,” leading viewers to believe she expected them to be upset with her.


When a castmate asked Harry if they lost or earned money, he answered he didn’t know, potentially indicating something happened, but he isn’t sure if Lana would punish them for it.

While many agree with this theory, some think the two only made those suggestive comments for “productions’ sake” and to add suspense. Others believe the couple didn’t touch each other, and instead pleasured themselves as Lana never stated that game rules were in effect.

Additionally, they pointed out the regulations mandating the couple not to have any contact with each other and didn’t mention anything regarding self-pleasuring. Too Hot to Handle is airing on Netflix.
