Though summer is already in full swing, Season 2 of Too Hot to Handle is definitely turning up the heat to another level. The infamous "no dating" reality series returned with a new batch of episodes on June 23, and the single stars were initially kept in the dark about what show they were on.
Before they knew that they had to refrain from physical contact, the 10 Season 2 cast members got flirty with one another.
They may have already faced some bumps in their relationship, but the two are certainly stirring things up on the show. Melinda is also getting praise from fans for keeping things interesting in the villa.
Keep reading to find out more about Melinda's life outside of the Netflix series.
Who is Melinda Melrose from 'Too Hot to Handle?'
The model was born and raised in Philadelphia, Penn., but she currently resides in Brooklyn, N.Y. Melinda comes from a big family, and she has 16 siblings.
Before she starred on Too Hot to Handle, Melinda was the central focus of her own YouTube channel. Her Melinda Berry page, which was created in 2015, has 7,600 subscribers.
Melinda posted makeup tutorials and lifestyle vlogs on her platform. She shared her last video on the page in 2020.
Outside of her YouTube vlogging, Melinda often chronicles her travels around the world and her various modeling ventures on her public Instagram page. Her account currently has 150,000 followers (a number that will surely continue to rise as fans keep watching the Netflix series).
She also has a popular TikTok account with 410,000 followers.
In her Too Hot to Handle introduction, Melinda noted that she's the opposite of a wallflower and that she needs someone who can keep up with her.
"I'm a firecracker..." she said. "I need a guy to adore me. I need compliments. I need a guy to tell me how pretty I look. Was that too shallow? Hope not."
The Brooklyn-based reality star twirled in excitement when Marvin Anthony arrived at the villa in the debut episode of Season 2. Even after the two learned that they were on Too Hot to Handle and not Parties in Paradise, they could not deny their connection. In the second episode, Marvin and Melinda kissed, which cost the contestants some of their prize money.
However, Marvin later flirted with Emily Miller, so Melinda shared another kiss with someone else: Peter Vigilante. By the end of the fourth episode, Marvin and Melinda were able to work out their differences, but it remains to be seen if the two will leave the Turks and Caicos villa as an official romantic item.
What is Melinda Melrose's age?
When Melinda started her YouTube page in March of 2015, she noted in her bio that she was 22 years old. The model's birthday is on April 27, and she celebrated her 29th birthday in 2021.
The final six episodes of Too Hot to Handle Season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix beginning on June 30.
