The Netflix YouTube channel is bringing together your favorite dating show contestants on its new three-episode series, Reality Games, and tasking them with Survivor-like competitions.
Plus, it treats us to an appearance from Harry Jowsey and Francesca Farago—who loves a good crossover—so we're already guaranteed a bit of drama as well.
Chrishell Stause of Selling Sunset does the hosting honors as competitors race, put contraptions together and use their speed, agility and intelligence to earn the coveted prize, which just so happens to be a Netflix Reality Trophy. (No cash this time around.)

Inside the Netflix YouTube channel's Reality Games
The three-part series, which first launched on August 17th, will stream on the Netflix YouTube channel. The subsequent episodes are set to air on August 18th and August 19th. The themes for each episode are as follows, according to Netflix:
- Episode 1: Tuesday, August 17th | "Put A Ring On It"
- Episode 2: Wednesday, August 18th | "Too Hot To Cheat"
- Episode 3: Thursday, August 19th | "Pulled Over The Finish Line"
Who will star in Reality Games?
Get ready to encounter a few familiar faces! Your favorite dating show characters are switching gears for this new project. Here's who's signed up:
- Too Hot to Handle's Francesca Farago and Harry Jowsey,
- The Circle's Joey Sasso and DeLeesa St. Agathe
- Love Is Blind's Lauren Speed-Hamilton and Cameron Hamilton
We have to hand it to Francesca Farago in particular, as she is clearly making the reality TV rounds as of late. Although she originally made an appearance on Too Hot To Handle, and had an explosive on-again-off-again fling with castmate Harry Jowsey, she really caught viewers' attention by joining the Love Is Blind reunion...and it wasn't to pay a visit to Lauren and Cameron.
Many speculated that Farago had a relationship with Damian Powers after they were spotted holding hands during dinner at EP & LP restaurant in West Hollywood.
"Over the past week, I have been in L.A. with my attorney, Alex Ion, pursuing new projects and business ventures. Francesca and I both share the same attorney," the actor confirmed to People.
This wouldn't have been an issue if he weren't already attached to Giannina Gibelli. Many are wondering "Are Damian and Giannina still together?" following the Love Is Blind reunion, considering he decided to bring Farago along for the ride.
"I knew she was in town, but I didn't know that they were planning on going as a date," Giannina revealed to ET. "That, like, my blood boils just thinking about that."
