Aussie Harry from Too Hot to Handle Tells Us About His "Clingy" Relationship with Francesca
Let's start with the answer to the question on every Too Hot to Handle fan's lips: Are Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago still together? Aussie Harry tells POPSUGAR Australia, yes, although the pair did split for about eight months after filming. While they had visited each other in Vancouver and Australia, they broke up because they "just didn't see eye-to-eye on a couple of things", Harry says.
But they've been together again since February, when Harry got drunk, texted her and asked if he could FaceTime her dog. "We're in April now, hey? Holy sh*t, we're doing really well. Wow. I'm proud of myself."
During self-isolation, they're staying connected with three-hour daily FaceTime calls despite the distance between Harry's home in LA and Vancouver. "We're pretty clingy," Harry admits. "We don't even talk [the whole time], we just sit there. Like I'll be working, and to feel that she's there makes me feel comfortable."
Harry's not offended that people might have doubted their connection, which he described in the series as like "pineapples on pizza", another controversial pairing.
"She's so far out of my league, I would doubt it as well. I don't have anything to offer her that can bring her value at all," he said. "I look at the relationship and I'm like, 'Dude, why are you with me?'"
Harry and Francesca's chemistry kicked off from day one, the pair sharing a kiss and earning the first deduction of the series. "I didn't really believe in love at first sight, and then I met her and I just couldn't talk. I fumbled and I was like dribbling."
But it took Harry a while to say "I love you." "I've never had that feeling before, so I didn't know how to say it or what it was, and then as soon as I realised that I was actually head-over-heels in love with her, I said it."
