Dec. WWF show may have revealed some eliminated contenders.
So far, two people have been eliminated from Tough Enough 2, and another has been deemed ineligible. Reader Brian says he was watching a WWF show on Dec. 10 and noticed a group of people he suspected could be the cast of Tough Enough 2. A recent check of the tape confirmed he was right–and likely indicated who will be removed from the competition next. He writes, (highlight to read possible spoilers), “Sure enough, there are Hawk, Jake, Annie, Linda, Alicia, Jessie, Jackie, Kenny and a guy who I think is Pete. Missing from the group are Robert & Aaron (who were already voted off) as well as the other small guy (presumably Danny) and also Matt, one of the larger guys.”
