What happens in the premiere of WWE Tough Enough? Spoilers
I will not spoil the results, or the ending, but I´ll tell you some things to look forward to on the show:
Miss USA has a filthy mouth!
Ivelisse can take a hit pretty well!
Jeremiah loses the teeth right from the beginning
Stone Cold looks like a guy you would not want to fight. Well, they have to
“The decision process to send someone home starts and end with me” he says and shows right from the start who´s the boss
The First lesson is about commitment
Ariana will rapidly get on everybody´s nerves. And I don´t mean on the show. At home watching. You´ll be rooting against her soon.
I thought I saw the mansion elsewhere in another show. The Bachelor? Joe Millionaire? Somewhere, but don´t seem to remember where.
Miss USA sure did not have the ability to roll
Anything that you call “three minutes of hell” is surely going to be a challenge to watch
Then there´s bottom three. One already have the candidates in mind. You´ll see.
Any person admitting to shit himself on stage while wrestling shows commitment.
