First comes Love Is Blind, then comes marriage, then comes yet another f*cking reality dating show. It’s 2020, and most of us can relate to being isolated and isolated and sex-starved, but imagine this: you’re champagne-wasted on a free beach resort vaca surrounded by super hot people…the catch is, you’re literally not allowed to hook up with anyone unless you want to lose money. Harry Jowsey, the Australian hunk from Netflix’s reality dating show Too Hot To Handle, has experienced this ~traumatic~ experience firsthand. On the most recent episode of the Let Me Finish podcast, Taylor Jackson and Abby Lloyd sat down with Harry to discuss his recent breakup, sex, and breakup sex.
Harry and his THTH costar Francesca Farago, a Canadian model and Instagram personality, left the show together, broke up, then got engaged during the reunion special. But, in true influencer fashion, Francesca announced their second split via a YouTube video entitled “Our Break Up.” According to Harry, he was totally blindsided by the video, since he and Francesca had actually filmed a joint video explaining their breakup. “Everything was going to be civil, but she posted her video and it kinda just had a whole bunch of fabricated stories to attack me,” he said. “And I was like, I’ve got receipts and everything.” (Screenshots, screenshots, screenshots, people.)
The dramatic breakup has, understandably, been pretty tough on Harry’s mental health. In addition to anxiety attacks and a loss of appetite, he’s been getting attacked by commenters on his Instagram and TikTok accounts. “I don’t know what happened with me and Francesca because we had a great relationship, the breakup wasn’t bad, we just didn’t see eye-to-eye on a whole bunch of stuff,” he said. “Then that video got posted and then she just kept sending this tirade of hate toward me and my friends and my family, and I was like, ‘I don’t know who she’s talking to or who’s in her corner, because this isn’t the girl that I know.” As if the heart-wrenching breakup weren’t bad enough, Harry now has to call in his lawyers. “It’s gotten to a point where it’s affecting my brand…so I’m like okay, everything you’re saying is a lie, so…” We’re here for this passive aggression.
Francesca rebounded quickly, while Harry—who really is too hot to handle IRL, Abby confirms—has been easing back into the dating game. Just this weekend, he took a girl to dinner then to a party with a bunch of Gen Z TikTok stars (seems like a pretty sh*tty date idea, but that’s just me). Turns out, his date had ~history~ with one of the other guys there and ended up leaving with him, so Harry ended the night, declaring, ”Okay, I’m calling an Uber, I’m going home.” I mean, we’ve all been there. On the bright side, this means that Harry is single….He reports that he’s into tattoos, girls that text first, and post-breakup sex, so slide on into those DMs, ladies.

After the episode, Jordan joined us on The Betchelor podcast, ready to spill the tea. To get all of the important info, you’ll need to listen to the full episode of The Betchelor in its entirety, but I’ve done you all the favor of highlighting some of the juicier tidbits from Jordan’s episode. You are so welcome in advance. Read below, and subscribe and rate The Betchelor on iTunes.
On Lincoln being a floor sh*tter…
“I never did see lincoln go to the restroom.”
On how he feels around Krystal…
“There’s this insert of me with Krystal, and it disturbs me. There’s such a hype around Krystal and I, and there’s such a low-key fear of me even looking into her eyes. I can’t even sit at the same table with her.”
On what you didn’t see from Jason…
“Jason was singing Disney songs every morning in the shower—they didn’t show all that.”
On Christian confronting him at the Men Tell All…
“Fun fact: Afterwards, he comes up to me and says ‘can I get a picture? I’m a big fan.’”
“If you’re gonna be the guy who’s not being himself but will call other people out for being themselves, then I’ve got every right to pull the trigger. With that being said, I like to give a girl a better catch than a chase. That’s where you find love. It breaks my heart that he’s 26 years old and has never done that”
On guys (Chris) not being real for the cameras…
Derek Peth: “When you guys were in Vegas, we were at the Aria too and we met with some of the producers. They said the thing with this season is that these guys, the producers feel were like, trained to say things. Instead of just being who they are and speaking from the heart, they try to be somebody or portray somebody else.”
Jordan: “Chris went in trying to be someone else and when that didn’t match with what’s going on, he flipped out. It actually started to happen in Utah, and he lost it on everyone. You know, ‘facade’ is Chris’ middle name. He tries so hard, it’s like you don’t have to try to be with us. The Florida crew, we’ve disowned him.”
And more on Chris…
“He struggled a lot with his identity, like ‘I’ve got this and that’, but God, that doesn’t mean you’re a dateable guy, that you’re lovable. First of all, the dog that he claims to be his isn’t even his. Who does that? I mean, I’m not gonna lie, the photos ABC requested for the show, I sent them photos of me with my brother’s dog. I wanna give that guy a hug.”
On Grocer Joe (plus a ‘Paradise’ sneak peek)…
“Joe, he doesn’t talk very much. He speaks from the gut and all he says is, ‘Yeah, she’s a great girl’. I love him. He just wants you to find what you need in his grocery store. There’s so much to look forward to with Joe and I in Paradise, I can say that much.”
On his ideal bodyguard…
“Here’s the cool thing though–you call Joe out, you will get a reaction out of him. Joe will put you on your ass. Oh yeah, he’s got some Italian steam behind him. I’m telling you, if I need a bodyguard, it’s gonna be grocery store Joe. He can beat him with some tomatoes and make great ketchup, I’m sure. A real bloody scene, you know.”
On shady social media pages…
“Okay, I’m gonna call someone out here. I’m really fed up with who runs the Bachelor ABC page because I think it’s someone who isn’t tied to the show from an ABC standpoint. I think it’s someone that’s just trying to campaign for people, and that’s my vibe right now, and there’s a lot of people campaigning for Jason right now. I don’t know if he’s paying them off…”
On whether Blake is genuine…
“No. I definitely think Garrett is genuine. He’s absolutely genuine. The only thing, though, the first night when I met him, I had to introduce myself to him six times. I’m like, listen, I’m not that guy who’s wearing an apron at the grocery store, I’m f*cking Jordan. You should recognize, you know?”
