      Season 3 - Episode 5
      This week on Tough Enough, both Tommy Dreamer and Rey Mysterio made surprise appearances. Dreamer was the first to show, making an emotional speech right from the start. His words were so moving that many of the cast members were brought to tears. In fact, Dreamer himself was choked up, as well. According to Dreamer, his father is suffering from Parkinson's Disease. Unfortunately, the disease has taken his father's eyesight. An operation restored his eyesight, however, only for two weeks. It was during those two weeks that Tommy Dreamer debuted on WWE television. Having his father witness his debut meant the world to Tommy. Not long after, his father once again lost his sight. Rey Mysterio's appearance was a lot less emotional, but equally informative. Rey talked to the cast about his training and coming up in Mexico City. He told them how important masks were to the people in Mexico. Then, in the ultimate sign of respect, Mysterio removed his mask, showing his face to the cast. Before Rey left, he pulled Jamie -- who had been having a very trying week -- aside and told her not to give up. He also told her that she looked great in the ring and has a bright future.

      Jamie's troubles started when she began to question whether she had what it took to be a WWE Superstar. She didn't know if she had the body for it. On top of that, she was starting to feel like some of the house members did not think as highly of her as she had hoped. Jonah went on to say that he is repulsed by Jamie, especially by her burping and when she lets her ass hang out.

      In an attempt to get her mind off her troubles, Jamie went out with several of the house members. She had a few too many drinks and it began to show. First, she intimately kissed a guy at the bar, a guy she later admitted to not remembering. Then on the way home, she began to flip out. Crying, she began to say that the competition was the biggest thing that ever happened to her and that she wanted to be a WWE Superstar more than anything else in the world. People in the house began to question her stability after her outrage.

      Rebekah also had a very trying week. Her in-ring training was progressing nicely, however, the same could not be said for her personal life. Back home, her mother's house was being foreclosed on. Not able to get the image of her homeless mom off her mind, Rebekah decided to leave the competition in order to be closer to her family.moreless

      Season 3 - Episode 4
      For the first time this season, Al Snow, Bill DeMott, Ivory and Big made a cut, sending the 6' 10" Chad back home to Wisconsin. According to the trainers, as well as some of the cast members, Chad just wasn't picking up the in-ring work. Plus, his charisma was lacking. As a result, Chad was cut, leaving only 10 Tough Enough contestants. As usual, Scott found himself getting into some trouble this week on Tough Enough. In addition to engaging in an ethnic/religious war with Rebekah, he also had a few too many drinks during the cast's night out. In fact, Scott had so many drinks, that an ambulance was called. Near lifeless, Scott rested in a puddle of his own urine as EMTs attempted to help him. Luckily while at the hospital, Scott received the attention he needed. Embarrassed, he returned to the house the next morning. Rebekah's Christianity was also a large focus of the show this past week. The pretty WWE hopeful was heard several times saying that she does not have the Christian fellowship she hoped she would have in the house. As a result, she said she turns to her Bible for support. Moments later, Rebekah was shown doing what many would consider not very Christian-like things. Some of the cast members began looking at the evidence and began to wonder if sweet, little Rebekah was being a hypocrite. In addition to being a former Hooter's girl, Rebekah was seen dancing like a stripper on the top of a bar and sun bathing in next to nothing this week.moreless

      Season 3 - Episode 3
      Like last week, Scott managed to annoy everybody in the house on this week's episode of Tough Enough. His biggest target was Jamie. On top of calling her and a few of the guys in the house faggots, he also asked her a very personal question -- "have you ever used a female condom?" It was later learned that Jamie's dislike for Scott comes from when he saw her naked. Apparently, Scott just barged into the bathroom without knocking when Jamie was getting into the shower. Scott also managed to get on Eric and Jonah's nerves. The two guys made a bet with him, stating that if he was able to score a girl's phone number while out on the town, they would go to the beach the next day in bikinis. If he failed, however, Scott would have to do the act. Unfortunately for Eric and Jonah, Scott was able to pull two phone numbers. Eric and Jonah tried to talk their way out of the bet, but Scott wasn't budging. Later in the show, Scott tore a ligament in his hand. The injury should keep him out of action for six to eight weeks. The bad news caused the Tough Enough competitor to break into tears. What does Scott's future hold? Will he be forced out? Or will he fight the pain and continue to compete? Elsewhere on Tough Enough, Lisa was getting on the house's nerves. In addition to messing up in the ring, she would laugh every time she did so. This pissed off the roommates, as well as the trainers. As a result, Al, Ivory and Bill made the entire cast workout even more after their daily workout. After an already upset cast made it home from training, they figured the would all go out together, in an attempt to bond. Everybody agreed it was a good idea, except one person... Lisa. This obviously made the house even more upset with her. The next day, Big came over two hours early. He sat the cast down and told them that Lisa had decided the competition was not for her. She had quit and gone home.moreless
    • Quitter
      Season 3 - Episode 2
      Last week on Tough Enough, the 13 members of the cast were chosen after a long and strenuous tryout process. As this week's show kicked off, Big told the cast members that their challenges were not done yet. He then pointed to a gigantic mountain-side house and told them they had to run to it because it was where they would be living.

      Even before everybody settled in, the drama of season three began. Apparently, Scott rubbed everybody the wrong way right from the start, especially his roommate Jamie. Before Jamie was even unpacked, Scott asked her if she was a lesbian. Jamie was clearly not excited about the question.

      Scott's insane comments intensified as the show went on. His most offensive comment to the house members came when he asked if there were a lot of fags in a certain location.

      In addition to being a nuisance in the house, Scott wasn't all that well like in the ring. Of the 13 cast members, he was the only that could not nail the back bump. This especially upset WWE Superstar Bill DeMott. At one point, DeMott jumped on Scott with his forearm crushing Scott's face and screamed at him at the top of his lungs.

      Elsewhere in the house, Jonah, who has a past with Jill, admitted to her that he has a girlfriend. Clearly, this did not sit well with Jill.

      Coupled with the fact that she could get the hang of the in-ring action, Jill was unhappy with her Tough Enough experience as a whole. With that in mind, she called Big to let her know she was quitting.

      The next day at Trax West, Big informed everybody that Jill was leaving the competition. He then asked that everybody stand up and say something to Jill about her leaving. Once everybody was done, an angry Big took over, saying that he was ashamed that he even picked Jill. He was upset that he picked her over others and she just quit after the first day of training. According to Big, this was an insult. He claimed that by quitting, he spit on all 12 other cast members. He finished by saying "You spit on me, I spit on you. Get up and leave!"moreless

      Who will be the next Maven, Nidia, Linda or Jackie? The road to name the next Tough Enough Champions began Thursday night when WWE Superstars Al Snow, Ivory and Bill DeMott, alongside Big, narrowed the field of 75 hopefuls down to 13 cast members. This year, rather than throwing the extravagant casting gala, Tough Enough chose to make the Casting Special more intimate. Judges spent more time evaluating the hopefuls as people. Once they saw what they liked, they selected 25 finalists to go through a torturous several days of training, both in and out of the ring. Some of the 25 didn't make it to the end. The ones who did were there to hear the final 13 names called: Chad - Jamie - Nick - Jill - John - Jonah - Eric - Justin - Kelly Matt - Lisa - Scott - Rebekahmoreless

      Season 3 - Episode 6
      The Tough Enough 3 cast grew smaller this week while a few of the competitors expressed their desire to become more than just friends with their housemates. Jamie loves flirting with the guys in the house, especially John. She admits to having a crush on him, but there's just one problem. John has a girlfriend and has no desire to cheat on her. Kelly, meanwhile, began to buddy up to Nick. But Nick was clear that he had no intention of getting at all involved with his housemate. To make things even more interesting, Big said that he would draw two names at random and allow the winners to fly in a guest for the weekend. John and Jonah were selected and each chose to fly in their girlfriends. Scott thought he found a great opportunity to land himself some female action. He offered to purchase the visitation rights from one of the guys so he could see a former high school classmate of his. The fact that Scott hadn't talk to this girl in four years caused the cast to shake their heads and roll their eyes, but Scott was completely unfazed. His attitude changed though after making an awkward call to his crush out of the blue. She made it clear that she had absolutely no desire of going to California for a rendezvous with Scott. Scott was crushed, but he forgot about it after going out to a bar and surprising the cast by dancing with a totally hot girl! The girlfriends arrived, and got to spend some time with their very appreciate boyfriends. Jonah especially made sure to be on his best behavior. Surprisingly, everyone got along. Even Jamie, who thought she would hate John's girlfriend, even had to admit that she could see them being friends. After feeling some pain in his arm, Nick took a trip to the doctor where he was diagnosed with tendonitis in his elbow. The doctor ordered Nick to rest his arm for an entire week, which put him out of training. While at Trax later that week, the cast was surprised with a visit by WWE Superstar Diamond Dallas Page! DDP touched the cast with the story about how he didn't give up on his dream despite entering the business at age 35. At the end of the day, Big announced that a cut would be made. The trainers debated on who should be released next, centering on Kelly, Scott and Nick. In the end, Nick lost out. Al Snow informed him that the it's imperative to have enormous heart and desire to enable you to work through the pain. Nick felt he didn't deserve to be cut, but he was forced to pack up his things nevertheless. In addition, when Nick left, so did Kelly's crush on him.moreless

      A Bag, a Rib, and a Cut
      Season 3 - Episode 7
      This week's Tough Enough had to be seen to be believed, as the greatest rib in the show's history was pulled off perfectly. Complaining of an injured neck, Jonah was sent to a nearby hospital. Initially, the injury looked bad, which frightened Jonah's cast mates. While at the hospital, however, it was learned that Jonah's injuries were not as severe as first thought and that he would be alright with a little medication.

      Being the opportunist that he is, Jonah decided that this was the perfect opportunity to play a rib on his cast mates. Wrapped in head bandages and secured by a neck brace, Jonah walked into Trax West and asked everybody to sit around him. He began to cry as he told them that his injury was forcing him out of the competition. As Jonah began to cry, so did all of the other cast mates. This truly was an emotional moment. Before leaving, Jonah asked that everybody say something nice about him. Each member of the cast choked back tears as they spoke kind words about Jonah. The most emotional was Matt. Crying almost uncontrollably, he finally walked over to Jonah and gave him a big hug. Soon thereafter, Jonah asked that everybody remember this moment, he then ripped off the neck brace and finished by saying "when I'm kicking your ass in the ring." The rib was complete. Also on the show, Big announced to the remaining cast members that they would be going to Iceland. However, there was still going to be one cut made before the trip set off. Scott and Kelly pretty much knew that it was going to be one of them. Each one was seen making arguments as to why they think they should stay. In the end, however, it was Kelly that was given the ticket to Iceland, as Scott was sent home.moreless

    • Did We Mention that Kelly’s Back Hurts?
      This week's episode of Tough Enough was highlighted by a trip to Iceland, but prior to leaving for the trip, the cast decided it was payback time for Jonah.

      Upset with rib he pulled on them last week, the cast poured laxative into his protein shake. Unknowing, Jonah swallowed the whole drink down. The cast and trainers then sat back and watched as Jonah was doubled over in pain. Finally, he had reached the boiling point. After getting to the bathroom just in time, he realized that there was no toilet paper. In an attempt to continue the rib, Al Snow unraveled an entire roll of paper and passed Jonah three sheets.

      Finally when Jonah came out of the bathroom, the cast let him in on the rib. Everybody had a good laugh at his expense.

      The entire crew then set off for Iceland. While there, they trained outside in the cold. But inside, where it was warm, was where all the action was... at least that was the case for Eric. He found a girl at a local night club. After they swapped spit on the dance floor, the two went upstairs to Eric's room. The next morning, Eric admitted that it was a mistake. He left his room and begged Jonah and Justin to get the girl out of his room, but she wasn't budging. Finally after much trying, the girl agreed to leave, but not before stealing a piece of Eric's clothing for a keepsake.

      While in Iceland, Big alerted the cast that there was going to be a cut made. Many of the cast members thought that Eric was going to go, due to his actions with the girl the night before. However, in the end, it was Kelly that was sent packing.moreless
