Netflix dating series Too Hot to Handle is being watched by millions around the world – and its stars now boast hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers.
And Daily Mail Australia can reveal the 14 contestants are in a position to cash in on their newfound fame as social media influencers.
As you shall find out, their potential earnings as Instagram models far exceed the show’s $100,000 prize money.

Too Hot To Handle offered contestants the chance to win $100,000 – but the prize money was deducted if any of them caved into temptation by kissing or having sex.
Telecommunications company Mazuma ranked the popularity of the Netflix stars and estimated their potential profitability as influencers.
With three million followers, model Francesca Farago, 26, could earn AU $26,139 (US $16,997 / £13,767) per sponsored post, according to the research.
Francesca’s boyfriend, Harry Jowsey, 22, has estimated earnings of AU $20,330 (US $13,220 / £10,708) per post thanks to his 2.4 million followers.
By the looks of it, the couple have not shared any sponsored posts so far, but they have promoted their own clothing and eyewear brands.
