The first episode of the new season of Tough Enough was tonight and, like I do with WWE NXT, I figured I'd do my coverage.
There's nothing dramatically different between this season and the previous incarnations of the show. It's very much in the same vain. Some nuances have changed, such as having people that are slightly better qualified to be in the ring than those who have literally zero experience, but it's essentially the same show. One thing that retains that I've never been a fan of is that it follows the typical reality show concept where the judges/trainers are yelling all the time and every little thing is a mistake, everything is about how if you don't respect them, they'll throw you out (and they always complain that the kids don't act like dicks to them, which if they ever do, they get yelled at for). Hypocritical stuff like saying they can't be on their knees while Bill DeMott sits in the corner will drive you nuts if you're like me. At the moment, my favorite of the coaches is Booker T for being a reasonable guy - even though I'd much rather look at Trish Stratus ;)
As for the contestants themselves, let's break it down, starting with the first elimination and then going alphabetically:
