Tool academy pt2

Part one of this continuation can be found here.

All of the guys decided to stay, which one might give some respect to these gents for that decision, but don't forget the $100,000 either.

As they go through different type competitions to determine their dedication to becoming non-tools towards their ladies, they are evaluated from a Psychologist as to their focus, determination and effort to the task, but more importantly, their focus on the relationship between their ladies and them.

It's amazing to me how much of a bunch of douche bags all of these guys can be. They still focus more on themselves than on the teamwork of themselves and their ladies.

After a competition, all of them, with the help of the psychologist, sit in a room and go over the happenings of the competition. All well and good, right? Well, at one of these discussions the door to the room opens and in walks a lady. When asked who she is, she says, "I am Shawn's girlfriend of six years!" Can you imagine the look on Shawn's face when he's now busted badly like this?

Well, without getting too much into the happenings of the episode, my point is that even when we believe that someone is sincere about wanted to fix a broken relationship, they may not be!

I know it's just a reality show that producers go out of their way to produce drama for, but if you think about it, it is a true reflection of real life.

So, how can we know when our partner wants real change? Or, that they are sincere with us, and more importantly, themselves? It seems to me to be an important idea to pursue.



  1. Producers find people that are worst of the worst. Anyway, the contestants have their own journey to discover who they are, and perhaps learn something out of this. People make mistakes, maybe they are not ready to change, but at another point in their life they too will grown and change to the better. Reality show can be a great lessons for us to watch if we can avoid judging them... which is difficult =)

  2. You're right HSG, I saw a show a while ago on how contestants are chosen for certain shows which supports what you've said.

    For me, like many things, I have to judge on somethings so that I can decide how to be a better person. Besides, I think they want a lot of judgment for these shows...makes a lot of money for them ;)

  3. Hahaha.

    You know, when I hear about shows like this I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Really, people are going on TV humiliating themselves like this?

    Well, here's my random thought. If these women think so little of their bfs that they call them tools and recommend them for this kind of show then those relationships were beyond help. Not all relationships are worth saving and not all men are worth having. Unfortunately (sorry, I've been reading a lot of online women's mags this week - doing my "research" and so I've kind of had it up to hear with this) there are a lot of women who seem to feel like they really love every man who enters their life and must stay with him no matter what. Must make every relationshiop, no matter how messed up, work. Love is rare, not all relationships last and some people (men and women) are just not worth the effort.

  4. SG, I have decided to laugh about these shows :)

    Your comment, taken as a serious reply, makes all the sense in the world. I have to realize thought, that these are "Reality" shows. I do find that I can learn a thing or two from them though. Ideas I mean, not lessons on "How to." lol


Thanks so much for your comment and input! :)
