When I was younger, it would’ve been impossible to see myself as an entrepreneur, let alone being on a reality TV show like Too Hot to Handle . But after winning the third season of the show and launching my own business, I never look back and I don’t even feel like it was that far away in the past anymore. Here’s how it all happened… Too Hot to Handle season 3 winner Harry Johnson opens up about his experience on the show.

Season three: Episode summary
Everyone who watches Too Hot To Handle is rooting for one of the contestants to win- so when there are only two left, it’s time for a winner to be crowned. The final episode sees this person as they chat with former contestants and find out what it was like to be on the show, while gearing up for their own interview (or ‘filming’) with presenter Jonny Labey. After hearing from some of the previous winners, Harry says he’s excited but also nervous about being interviewed.
‘I’m always nervous before I go on TV because I’m very shy,’ he says.
‘But then you get there and realise everyone else is just as scared.’
He admits that since winning he has had more confidence in himself – but will this help him win again?
Season three: Top six
It’s finally here! Top six, episode one: Crowning a winner is the most exciting part of Too Hot To Handle season three. We put our heart and soul into this competition, but there can only be one victor—this time that accolade goes to Harry Johnson. The Boro lad fought well with three garments, two models and 10 weeks of hard work for an impressive win tonight! He told us how he felt after hearing the words ‘Harry you are now Too Hot To Handle season three champion’ – I was completely shocked. I had no idea what to say or do. And we have to admit it was pretty darn cool seeing him walk away with £10,000 worth of prizes too. Well done champ!
Season three: Harry’s journey
The Season 3 winner has spoken out about how he felt before, during and after the reality show! I’m overjoyed to have won Season 3 of Too Hot To Handle but it was a big commitment for me. I had to stop working for the duration of filming which really affected my finances and my family life, says Harry. I think that’s one of the reasons why it took me so long to get back into work afterwards.
It also takes a lot of energy, says Harry.
What was your favorite moment in your time as a contestant?
If I had to choose a favorite moment, it would be when I found out that my burger was chosen as one of The Great British Menu Judges’ five best burgers in Britain. As someone who always felt insecure about cooking and not being able to produce perfect dishes, this made me realize that if I just put my all into every dish, then there’s no way they can’t come out well.
Describe how you felt when you found out you were going to be on the show?
I was absolutely over the moon when I got told that I would be a contestant on ‘To Hot To Handle’ season 3 and it felt like a dream come true, but it has been tough going through 10 episodes of arguments, banters and challenges. The twists never end and you are constantly in head-to-head competition with other contestants as you try to stay as vocal, passionate and strong as possible while they battle their way through the process with nothing left in their tank.
What advice would you give future contestants?
– Reality TV can be emotional and you will have your low moments, but think of it as an opportunity. Try not to put all your eggs in one basket so that if things don’t work out you’ll have a back-up plan.
– Stay true to yourself and don’t let any negativity get you down because it’s just not worth it, no matter how difficult something may seem
– Enjoy every single moment!
Frequently Asked Questions
What does Harry Johnson do for a living?
Harry currently works as a Personal Trainer, and his long-term goal is to open a CrossFit gym near where he lives in Middlesbrough, England. He has already been managing clients for 2 years and had started making some headway in this area before being offered the opportunity to compete in Too Hot To Handle Season 3.
Are Harry and Beaux still together?
When we last saw Harry, he was wrapped in a towel, hanging out with Beaux – walking around their home in the early hours of Monday morning. He later said: ‘I’m not going to lie and say I don’t have feelings for her.
How old is Harry Johnson?
Harry is a 29-year-old make-up artist who’s originally from Middlesbrough, England and has been living in London for the past 10 years. He won Season 3 of Too Hot To Handle but also spends his time vlogging as he can’t not share every aspect of his life with people, as well as doing gigs with Justin (another contestant) where they do drag transformations and makeup tutorials.
Are Beaux and Harry getting back together?
So you’re thinking, is Beaux and Harry back together again? To be honest, we don’t know! The way it looked on TV was that they had a moment where they were super into each other and all over each other but then what’s been said behind-the-scenes tells a different story, so it’s tough to say right now. We really don’t know, but we’ll just have to wait and see how things unfold. I’m not sure if I would get back with him at this point because there are so many feelings involved. It would be hard for me to turn my feelings off for him. He doesn’t want any more commitment than what he’s already given me, and I don’t want anything more than I’ve already got from him either.
I do feel like there are some unresolved issues between us because of everything that happened in season 2 with Joe and Bella when she came out as transgender.
