OK, so have you gotten roped into watching an episode or two (or the entire season so far) of "Tool Acedemy"?

It is a very interesting premise: a group of ego driven men who treat their girlfriends incredibly poorly are invited to a party because they are in the finals to be a contestant on the new tv show "Mr. Awesome." After strutting their stuff for the ladies (a large group of attractive women), they are beckoned indoors and told that the plans have changed. There are still ladies to meet, but it's their girlfriends and the "Mr. Awesome" show is quickly replaced with "Tool Academy" where each week the couples must go to therapy, participate in a challenge and learn about the foundations of a good relationship: fidelity, honesty, maturity, romance, etc...

Be honest, admit if you watch the show and share your thoughts here. I personally think it's a great idea.

Never seen the show (and I admit I'm not a reality TV fan) but I like the concept!

Blue >>>

I do watch some of the darndest reality shows, but I beg to differ on that one. I think that "Tool Academy" has so many participants who thrive at the bottom of the food chain, you know, bottom dwellers, that no way no how can I watch it. I respect you opinion to discuss it.

On the other hand, I liked "The Bachelor" and it had some interesting characters as well. This is partially Hollywood's way of getting out of paying "real actors". Oh, how I miss the good movies, dramas, and comedies.

I have seen this reality series. I do think it's a good idea for the men that are "tools" to be able to better themselves. However, I do not think that they will "genuinely" want to better themselves when they have a golden carrot of $100,000 hanging in front of them if they win the competition. I honestly wonder what is going to happen with the winner once he achieves that $100,000 prize. Will he still be a good man to his girl?

Hi Blue.... I've can honestly say that I've never heard of the show. There are so many reality based shows, it's hard to keep track! I can see where turning a complete 'tool' of a boyfriend into a better man would be a positive thing. Sadly, most of the "changes" these men make, only last as long as the show airs. Old habits die hard. Especially when they're not on camera. A better show idea might be luring those men to a "Mr. Awesome" contest but the twist being they'd watch their girlfriends choose another man that really is awesome. Men who feed off of their own ego, and treat the women they supposedly love poorly, don't really deserve a public spotlight to stand in. Regardless if the show tries to 'change' them for the better. It shouldn't take anything more than just knowing the right way to treat someone else and doing it.
