"Tough Enough," Episode 4 - The Contestants Meet the Best There Is, the Best There Was, and the Best There Ever Will Be

By Mallory Mahling Apr 25, 2011 - 9:25 PM print

Welcome to WWI's recap of Episode 4 of "Tough Enough."

Last week Michelle Deighton and Mickael Zaki went home. Michelle left because she missed her little girl, and a surprisingly understanding Stone Cold shared with her how much he misses his own children when he's on the road.

Mickael was a different story. Never short on ego or attitude, he couldn't understand why Austin was showing him the door. It didn't seem to occur to him that a little wrestling talent was necessary to be Tough Enough, too.

Those still in contention are the ones who have displayed more of what it takes to make it in the ring. The remaining ten contestants are:

* Martin Casaus

* Christina Crawford

* Rima Fakiah (Miss USA)

* Ryan Howe

* A.J. Kirsch

* Andy Leavine

* Jeremiah Riggs

* Luke Robinson

* Ivelisse Velez

* Eric Watts

Who will survive week 4 and who will be told to pack his or her bags and go?

After the elimination, Rima put on her training gear and was told to meet Bill DeMott at the training facility. She had asked for additional training and it seemed to be more grueling than she had thought it would be. She was physically shaken, and DeMott said this was the first time she seemed to realize that TE was more than she'd signed up for.

Stone Cold introduced his special guest, Bret Hart. Luke was thrilled to meet another of his heroes, as were the others in the group. Hart shared his philosophy of giving everyone his best, and they were soaking up every word.

Booker T was not available this week because he was appearing on Smackdown.

This week's lesson was about agility. Most had trouble with the exercises, but Martin, Luke and Jeremiah were among the few standouts. Eric was not.

Trish took extra time with the women who were sinking fast.

The next morning there was another Life Lesson, and DeMott told the contestants to meet Trish at Frisco's Restaurant for a crash course in agility. They would be skating servers for the day.  Before long they got the hang of it and were even dancing on wheels. DeMott was laughing so hard he cried.

After "work," the contestants got to enjoy drinks and dancing at Frisco's. Everyone, that is, except Andy, who remained "straight edge." He should be commended for staying true to his goal and promise to his family.  He did look a little glum, though.

It was time for the skills challenge--tackle, drop down, hip toss, etc. Stone Cold said the drill would continue until there was a winner. Martin was the last man standing and took the win.  Austin praised him.

As for Sour Grapes Luke, Austin said Luke went to things he wanted to do, not what was asked for. Luke took that to mean he's the top dog, and knew he outshined Martin. Yeah, whatever.

Austin had Trish and DeMott meet with him in his office to discuss who should leave. Austin not impressed with the girls, and Trish acknowledged that they just were not brining it. DeMott noted that Rima and Jeremiah were as green as grass, but Jeremiah was showing improvement. Rima was just not there; she is not an athlete and is not going anywhere. The trainers had a distinct bottom of the barrel when it came to making a choice of who should be in the bottom three.

But in the end, Rima was the only one picked. Austin said there was no reason to belabor the point. He said she has a lot of heart, but he doesn't think she's ready. She argued that it was not fair; she said she just needed to "get it." Rima was in tears as she turned in her TE belt.

Trish told her she had shattered the stereotype of what a beauty queen is and, in fact, reminded Trish of her own self.

Austin said Rima could be a success in this business, but she wouldn't be Tough Enough. He wished her safe travels and told her to always keep pushing for her dream.


"Tough Enough" is seen on Monday nights at 8:00/7:00 CT, as well as various times during the week. Check local listings.
