Christina Carmela didn't want to fall in love when she entered "Parties in Paradise", but that's exactly what happened when she found herself on the second season of Netflix's dating show Too Hot to Handle.

In case you don't know about the show, it focuses on 10 singles forming meaningful relationships by abstaining from any physical or intimate activity such as kissing, heavy petting, and self-gratification. If the rules are broken, they lose money from the collective $100 000 (R1.5 million) prize pot.

Until she entered the private villa in Turks and Caicos, the South African commercial pilot had no idea which show she was really on. It was fellow contestant Cam who broke the news on their date.
