On finale night, Bryce Hirschberg, Chloe Veitch, David Birtwistle, Francesca Farago, Harry Jowsey, Kelz Dyke, Lydia Clyma, Nicole O’Brien, Rhonda Paul, and Sharron Townsend were all deemed the winners of Too Hot to Handle and split the $75,000 prize.

The series will follow the original group of ten singles as they are taken to a special island villa for four weeks to find love and $100,000. However, twelve hours into the retreat, the contestants are informed by a virtual assistant, Lana,[1] that they cannot do anything sexual, such as kissing, sex, or masturbating. If they do, then the prize money will decrease by a set amount.[2] Kissing can deduct up to $3,000 from the total prize fund, oral sex can deduct up to $6,000[3] and sex can dock up to $20,000.[4] Midway through the game, four new contestants joined as part of the retreat and followed the same rules as everyone else, making a total of fourteen contestants. At several points during the retreat, Lana set up workshops for the contestants to play in order to stay entertained.[4] These games can consist of many things, such as Shibari.[5]

Midway through the season, the contestants were given watches, which would emit a light when the contestants make a genuine connection, as judged by production. Once the light turned on, the rules of the retreat were void for the contestant and they were able to explore their connection further. If their connection was strong enough, they were able to have a night at the private suite, but their lights would not turn on during the night, meaning they would still need to continue following the rules.[6] If a contestant was not showing growth in making a strong connection, they would be eliminated.

As part of the final night, the two contestants that cost the most money from sexual contact would have to spend the night together in the special suite without any physical contact at all. If they were to spend the entire night with no contact, the amount of money they cost from the prize fund was added back. Before the prize fund was allocated, several contestants were eliminated since they failed to seek personal growth. At the allocation ceremony, the remaining contestants all split the prize money since they all experienced personal growth in their dating life.

NFL Draft 2020

NFL Draft 2020: One of the weirdest off seasons in NFL history rolls along as the 2020 NFL Draft begins Thursday evening. Originally scheduled to be take place in Las Vegas, this year’s draft will instead be held virtually as the league and fans everywhere continue to deal with the corona virus pandemic.

The Cincinnati Bengals have the first overall pick and will start off this year’s fully virtual NFL Draft.

We will watch the NFL Draft 2020 online, but this year’s draft has a completely new twist: all of the teams are operating remotely. Because the NFL Draft can’t be held off, and everyone is doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19, everyone’s going to participate from a social distance. There’s even a way to have Goodell hear your boos from your home.

Each of the league’s 32 teams is going to be setting up shop at their own home bases, including Tompa Bay (groan). We can’t wait to see if the New England Patriots take the high road or change their Zoom background to something that speaks to how annoying their former QB’s becoming.
