When Francesca Farago agreed to be on Too Hot to Handle she had no thought what she was moving into.

The ‘Too Hot to Handle’ guidelines helped Francesca develop as an individual
The publication requested the Canadian influencer is she feels “that being prevented from having sexual contact really does intensify an emotional connection.”
“Definitely,” she responded. “I think that not being able to get physical with someone makes your connection with them stronger because you have to find other ways to show affection. Generally, I’m a very affectionate person. I like to touch the person I’m with and I like to be touched. That’s one of my love languages, I guess you would say, physical affirmation. So the fact that we weren’t allowed that was a real shock for me but, even though I did break the rules and have some physical contact, I was still able to form such strong bonds with people. I don’t know if it would necessarily have been that strong if it was more of just a physical thing.”
Francesca says, due to the principles of the present, she acquired to know individuals “on such an emotional level.”
“We got to know ourselves as well, so I guess that whole experience just really makes you reevaluate the way you form relationships,” she mentioned.
Francesca gained so much from the ‘Too Hot to Handle’ workshops
The Too Hot to Handle workshops clearly weren’t for each contestant. But Francesca thinks they have been key to her development on the present.
“Without the workshops, I don’t think I would’ve developed as much as I did in the house. All of them made you have a lot of self-realization, a lot of self-reflection. They definitely allowed me to open up to the other people, realize a lot about myself, a lot about my character, a lot about the way I was treating other people in the house, which I didn’t really realize before,” she mentioned. “I was just being selfish and focusing on my connections and I was breaking the rules when I wanted to, but I realized that we were there to grow and my actions had consequences and there were other people’s emotions involved and I needed to consider not only myself, but everyone else’s emotions as well.”
Francesca continued: “So without the workshops, it definitely wouldn’t have ended the same way that it did, because we wouldn’t have been able to develop in the way that we did and learn about ourselves. So they definitely touched all of us.”
