Nothing has ever stopped Shawn Wells from going after what he really wanted. The guy even joined Too Hot To Handle season 4 in the middle of an ongoing season and chose Kayla Richart to go on a date who was already coupled with Seb Melrose!
Keep reading this Shawn Wells Bio explores this darer’s life.
Shawn Wells On Too Hot To Handle
Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle season 4 premiered on December 7, 2022, and as always there arrived brand new stunning ladies and a couple of handsome hunks on the shores of paradise. But Shawn Wells wasn’t one of them! He joined the show much later during episode 7 alongside Imogen Ewan and sent shockwaves throughout the villa.
Shawn’s confidant. He said if you Google “sexy black man,” he comes up, “You’ll see me, right there,” he added. So, he wasn’t on the show to play games. He even made it very clear right during his entrance stating he was going to walk in “like a Florida hurricane!”
Furthermore, the Florida native added he had no issue stepping on people’s toes and wanted to “take Kayla from whoever she’s with.”
Promoting himself and the show, Shawn took to his IG to write, “The wait is finally over! Get your popcorn ready. Catch me on Too Hot To Handle streaming now on @Netflix!”
Also, boasting his stunning entrance impression, Shawn made TikTok videos walking like a boss, captioned, “How I felt walking into the villa on Too Hot To Handle.”
Prior to Shawn, his co-stars Brittan Byrd, Creed McKinnon, Dominique Defoe, James Pendergrass, Jawahir Khalifa, Kayla Richart, Nick Kici, Sebastian Melrose, and Sophie Stonehouse, were already in the villa.
Shawn Wells Relationship Status
Shawn Wells didn’t reveal if he came out of the villa with Kayla or not. And it only makes sense that he kept his relationship status wrapped up because Too Hot To Handle season 4 was still going on.
Looking back, this go-getter set his eyes on Kayla the moment he stepped into the villa. Even during the entrance promo, he said, “I’m taking Kayla from whoever she’s with.” And by “whoever” he meant Seb Melrose!
In case you missed Kayla and Seb’s romance, the two started out sleeping in the same bed after Kayla gave up on Nigel Jones. The two then started dating and it wasn’t long before Kayla admitted she had a soft spot for Nigel because he had expressed interest, was unapologetically funny, and was also generally shy.
Acknowledging their love, the show also gave the lovebirds the ultimate control test to demonstrate their compatibility — a romantic evening spent by themselves in the private suite, complete with booze, rose petals, and a two-person bathtub. So, it was then and there that the pair first showed that they were committed to the relationship.
Fast-forward to ep 7, our star Shawn then threatened their relationship. But since Kayla had already decided, Shawn later turned to Jawahir Khalifa whilst referring to her as a “Black Queen.” Onbovusly, fans didn’t appreciate this.
“So Shawn sees that Kayla clearly has chosen to remain with Seb then he immediately diverts to “I love my black queens” for his backup plan, like NAH stay over there. The same old tactic they always pull whenever their preferences aren’t choosing them,” a user wrote.
While another tweeted, “Shawn is so unbelievably corny my god. any black man who says “I love my beautiful black queens” on tv does not date black women IRL.”
