Too Hot to Handle contestant Kori Sampson has drawn the ire of the internet for a questionable tattoo choice and rumoured teenage rapping career.
The 24-year-old model and personal trainer joined Netflix’s reality series Too Hot to Handle in episode six, lasting until the finale.
And one eagle-eyed viewer couldn’t help but notice his chest tattoo, made up of Roman numerals, which seemingly makes reference to a sex position.

The i Paper‘s Luke Bailey deciphered the tattoo, tweeting: “This guy from too hot to handle has a 6.9.69 tattoo on his chest in roman numerals.”
One Twitter user replied to Bailey’s tweet by saying: “[Sampson]…. Went to my school. He went through a phase where he thought he was a 14 year old Plymothian grime artist called KOZ MC. Other than that though he was nice enough.”
Despite Sampson’s raunchy tattoo, contestants on the show were, in fact, penalised for having sex with one another, and Too Hot to Handle even prevented contestants from masturbating by placing “hidden cameras” in the showers and toilets, one of its stars claimed.
“First thing, there were cameras everywhere,” contestant Bryce Hirschberg told the Hollywood Raw podcast. “Even in the bathrooms, but it was just CCTV, so it was not for broadcast, the ones in the toilets. So, it was just to make sure that you weren’t doing that. They’re not recording, but they’re watching, essentially. It’s very awkward, man. I was holding it in a lot, bro!”
Too Hot to Handle has proven to be a hit for Netflix, with bookies speculating that it will be bigger than Love Island.
