Who is Christina from Too Hot To Handle season 2? Ethnicity and age explored

Too Hot To Handle is back on Netflix, this time with more singletons who have no idea what kind of summer they’ve signed up for.

To trick the cast for its sophomore season, the Too Hot To Handle team have sold them the story that they are on ‘Parties in Paradise’. The fake reality show even has a host, Jeff Dye, to make it seem all the more real.

For the initial ten, the twist that they are, in fact, on Too Hot To Handle comes as a complete surprise. They signed up for a summer of partying and casual flings, which has been replaced with a summer in life lessons of love and respect. So, er, not quite what the cast members had in mind.

As with the first season, there are late additions to the cast. Season 2 sees Robert Van Tromp and Christina Carmela joining the others in Turks and Caicos. So, who is Christina? Let’s get to know the South African model better.

Who is Christina from Too Hot To Handle season 2?

Christina Carmela is a model and pilot from Cape Town, South Africa. She is currently based in London, England.

As Christina explains in her initial THTH interview: “My dad’s Italian, my mom’s Portuguese but I was born in South Africa.”

This jet-setter isn’t concerned about stepping on anyone’s toes, as she declares she’ll go for whoever she wants. But she had her sights set on Welsh model Cam Holmes in her first episode. Will she snatch him away from Emily Miller?
