The latest season of Tough Enough has certainly got the WWE Universe talking, with many potential winners being voted off in the earlier stages.
Fans and WWE legends alike were all venting their frustrations since the competition started.
Daria Berenato showed a lot of potential but was the fourth contestant voted out.

In the last two weeks, two potential winners in the male category also missed out on the $250,000 contract. Patrick Clark Jr and Mada Abdelhamid were tipped as potential winners but were voted off after the judges, consisting of Paige, Daniel Bryan, former judge Hulk Hogan and new judge, The Miz.
The judges did have the opportunities to save certain competitors, but they opted not to and ultimately the fans paid the price as favourites continued to be voted out and that’s a trend that could continue as the competition rolls on.
And the WWE aren’t too happy with what’s occurring in the competition, mainly because an unlikely winner is emerging.
WILL ZZ WIN?
ZZ doesn’t look like a WWE superstar. It’s that simple.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE officials are trying to get ZZ eliminated from the show as he stands a genuine chance of winning.
ZZ – real name Zamariah Loupe – is the youngest contestant on the show at 19 years old, and is the alligator wrestler from Louisiana.
The fans have taken a liking to him as he is over, he has the charisma and the ability to put a smile on people’s faces, which is what he’s trying to achieve.
The WWE released footage from the show last week, which showed one of the trainers; Billy Gunn letting ZZ know he’s simply not good enough as he couldn’t complete certain drills to a suitable standard, due to his condition. This obviously frustrated Gunn.
Meltzer has gone on to claim that the WWE released footage earlier than planned so that fans were able to see that ZZ is simply not good enough and doesn’t have what it takes to win the competition.
It was their method of trying to goad the fans into voting the popular competitor off the show, and it backfired.
WHO SHOULD WIN?
The fans ended up voting off Mada, which came as a shame as Amanda Saccomanno received the fewest votes but was saved by The Miz.
The WWE will obviously be frustrated by this as Mada was seen as a Vince McMahon-like superstar, he likes the build of someone like Mada and he is what a WWE superstar should look like.
The WWE have now stepped up their efforts to get ZZ off the show, and this coming week maybe the night where ZZ is voted off the show as long as he’s in the bottom three, and fans opt to vote him off this time.
The next favourite to win would be another superstar Vince is a huge fan of, Josh Bredl, whilst Giorgia Piscina continues to dominate challenges against the females and is expected to bag herself a contract.
