The 'Too Hot to Handle' reunion special got its participants and viewers at home very hot and bothered indeed.
'Too Hot to Handle' didn't prove quite the hit that prior Netflix dating series 'Love Is Blind' did. But that doesn't mean it didn't make stars of its participants. Two big names that came out of the show were Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago.
Since the series wrapped, they remain an item in spite of the long distance.
During the 'Too Hot to Handle' reunion special, which debuted on Netflix last weekend, Harry proposed to Francesca with a ring pop.
Obviously the legitimacy of the proposal has come into question, even with Francesca saying yes.
She cleared things up with Variety.
"I think it definitely just needs to be done in-person, like a proper proposal. So, as of right now, no, we’re not engaged, for everyone who’s been asking," she said.
She continued: "I mean, we kind of are, but I don’t know because how do you really decide that via Zoom call? It’s hard to say. But we talked about it.
"We had a shared folder about wedding rings, and he kept saying, ‘What ring do you want?’ And I just said, ‘Oh, just get me a Ring Pop,’ so that’s what I said…it was funny, it was cute, I was definitely not prepared for it. It was a cute gesture."
Harry seems to be a bit confused too as Francesca explained: "I asked him, like, ‘Are we engaged?’ And he’s like, ‘I asked you to marry me, so I don’t know.'"
If they're that uncertain, then no, they're not engaged.
