Too Hot to Handle was an international sensation last summer when people turned to the reality show for their entertainment during the COVID pandemic. Despite negative reaction from the critics, the show was a success with season 2 streaming this month, and one of the standout contestant is Melinda Melrose.

Melinda Melrose started her modeling career early and travelled all over the world living her best life. From France to Thailand, Melinda got what she wanted when she wanted it. Maybe that was the reason she was cast in Too Hot to Handle, to bring some of her sass.

In most cases when a contestant on a dating reality show goes into the show, still in a relationship, they are most likely cheating on their partners. Or sometimes they just breakup for the duration of the filming, but in Melinda's case, that was not true. Despite her saying, "If this is what love feels like, I don't ever want to lose it," in the Too Hot to Handle season 2 trailer, she has been in a relationship for over seven years with her boyfriend Darius Goodworth in 2021.
They were together before she went into filming the show back in January. And they are still together after she returned from the Turks and Caicos Islands.
