The producers of Tough Enough took the contestant’s cell phones and computers away upon arrival in the Simi Valley, California house. The contestants aren’t allowed to have any contact with friends or family for seven weeks, unless it’s an emergency.
It’s believed that at least one of the male contestants and one of the female contestants are from FCW and that two of the women have relationships with fairly well-known wrestling personalities. The male star believed to be from FCW is described as someone who is wild and will instigate drama.
It’s said that the revival of Tough Enough will be more scripted than in the past, which is interesting because WWE is promoting it as “unscripted TV.” The show is being described as more “Hogan Knows Best” than “Ultimate Fighter.”
