The following news is derived and re-written from the Pro Wrestling Torch newsletter.
A contestant from the new season of Tough Enough apparently had a pyschotic breakdown during the filming of the show. While the rest of the group went out, the contestant only known as "Lisa" got on the roof of the house and threatened to kill herself. From there, she was taken into a mental institute and placed in a straight-jacked. She apparently attacked her parents on the way to the institute and was refused the opportunity to return to the filming of the show when she contacted WWE/MTV officials with the request. Since the filming of the season has completed, this woman has talked her way backstage at WWE shows claiming she was Al Snow's personal assistant. At one point, Lisa almost got a OVW developmental contract after she again talked her way backstage at a house show and even had a discussion with Vince McMahon.
Wrestlers who talk to contestants and work with them in the ring during the Tough Enough III season include Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit, Lance Storm, and Tommy Dreamer. They will all be shown during the upcoming Tough Enough season which launches this coming Thursday following SmackDown!
One Tough Enough III contestant bluffed her way onto the show, claiming it to be a longtime dream to work for World Wrestling Entertainment. She later admitted that she never wanted to be a wrestler, and merely lied so she could be on TV. This prompted John "Big" Gaburik to lose his temper for the first time in the three seasons of the show. He was angry that she costed someone who had pro wrestling as their dream the opportunity to compete on the show.
There is apparently some sort of "jaw-dropping" shocker at the end of the third season of Tough Enough coming up. Like last year, the two winners have not yet been decided. The contestants who made it to the finals will be at a live special at The World in Times Square, New York, where the winners will be announced. One feature added to this year's show that wasn't on the last two seasons, is that viewers will be able to influence the picks as you will be allowed vote for who you think should win on the internet during the season finale'.
...Intresting, wondering if we'll get to see it as S*y didn't even bother showing series 2.
