To be in “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Bottom 3 means that you did something wrong. Second time around, you’re still not getting it. Third time? Go home.
Welcome back to The Wrestling Times. Ryan Howe was eliminated, and things are not looking good for the remaining eight contestants. So you know the drill. Let’s discuss–are you ready?–reality television.
The first time Ryan was summoned to the Bottom 3 was episode 2 when Matt Cross was eliminated. He had shown tremendous vulnerability when phoning home to his girlfriend. If it wasn’t for Matt Cross not having the guts to show the trainers of Tough Enough what he was truly about, Ryan would have been eliminated that day. Thanks to circumstances, Ryan made it through another week.
The second time Ryan was summoned was episode 3 when his arch rival Mickael Zaki was eliminated. When it came to cutting a passionate impromptu promo, Mickael couldn’t back up his reasons. Though Ryan was still falling behind in training, his new-found attitude is what saved him that night.
Now episode 5, when there’s only nine contestants left, Ryan should have been absorbing everything that the trainers were saying, and applied it in the Skills Challenge. But according to Booker T and Bill DeMott, Ryan continued to do stupid mannerisms in the ring, and no matter how many times he was told not to, he did it.
The new-found attitude that Ryan found in episode 3 turned into disrespectful arrogance. He rolled his eyes at Booker T, and paid very little attention to DeMott’s instructions in the obstacle course. After two close calls in the Bottom 3, Ryan started to feel that he was immune from elimination.
Along with his arrogance, Ryan’s greatest downfall was his constant screw ups in the ring. The only reason he even made it to the final three of the Skills Challenge with A.J. and Martin was because Ivelisse and Christina were worse. Ryan Howe had all the luck in the world, but his luck ran out.
To Ryan’s dismay, there are no immunity points on Tough Enough.
Martin Casaus won the Skills Challenge third week in a row. You can tell the trainers were impressed.
More than anything, I want Ivelisse to succeed, but the leg injury she suffered from Christina’s botched leapfrog may be the end of her. As for Christina, all that background in dancing and she can’t perform a leapfrog? Are you serious??
That’s it for this post. How hilarious was Steve Austin towards Luke in the Bottom 3? And did everyone hear the trainers? Jeremiah Riggs is outshining Luke. Still on Team Riggs.
