At 26-years-old, Marvin’s background is quite impressive. Currently working as a model and influencer, with 283,000 Instagram followers and counting, Marvin previously played semi-professional basketball — he was known by the last name Agoh then — and has a degree in finance (EuroBasket). During college, Marvin studied abroad for a year at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, with the university’s online newspaper, The Vermilion, writing an article about him. His Instagram is filled with beautiful pictures of his travels, modeling work, family, and other aspects of his life, and according to his LinkedIn, he started his own company in April 2019.
One thing “Too Hot to Handle” fans might not know is that Marvin has an extensive history being on reality shows, though until the Netflix series, they were all in France. His first appearance on a reality series was the first season of France’s version of “Love Island,” which aired in early 2020. Unfortunately, Marvin didn’t win the season, but he didn’t have too much of a chance, as “Love Island France” ended after Day 17 when South Africa, where they were filming, declared a state of emergency due to COVID-19 (Deadline). Then in July of 2020, Marvin joined the reality series “Les Marseillais VS le Reste du Monde,” which is a competition show that pits a group of people from Marseille against another group from around the world. Even after that, Marvin still managed to fit in one more show before he booked “Too Hot to Handle,” appearing in the French series “Les Princes de l’Amour,” which had Marvin as a “prince” exploring different relationships with various suitors pursing him.
Fluent in English, it makes perfect sense for Marvin to venture into American or British reality shows next, and he’s a welcome addition to the “Too Hot to Handle” Season 2 cast. If you want to know more about Marvin, you can watch him in the Netflix dating competition series now.
