Tough Enough 4 kicks off tonight.
The new “season” of Tough Enough 4 debuts tonight as part of SmackDown! on UPN, which starts at 8 p.m. ET. The eight finalists selected during semifinal competitions last weekend will be unveiled, and they’ll begin competing for the $1,000,000 contract. We’ll find out if The Real World‘s Mike “The Miz” Mizanin made it, helped by swooning fans armed with exclamation points. If you want to know whether or not Mike’s bid was a success, and who the eight finalists are in advance of tonight’s show, the WWE has actually already revealed the results on its web site. And (highlight to read) Mike is one of the final eight.
