Former Tough Enough Contestant Returning to Reality TV

Former WWE Tough Enough contestant Rima Fakih is returning to reality television this summer on a dating game show on FOX.

The show, called The Choice “borrows” the formula made famous by NBC’s hit show The Voice with blind auditions and spinning chairs (not to mention the similar name).

Fakih, along with Carmen Electra and two other yet to be revealed female celebrities, will sit in chairs with their backs turned as potential love matches try to woo them into turning around.

“It’s very exciting that Fox chose me,” said Fakih about being on the show.

In more Rima news, the former Miss USA was given six months probation today in her DUI case. The Detroit Free Press reports that Fakih will have to partake in community service, pay $600 in fines and take an alcohol safety class.

Watch the trailer for The Choice below:

    I really wanted to see her in the WWE, but whatever…

    • Kessuki

      me too. i think if she dressed as a glamourpuss the fans would love her. she would make a great valet for randy orton.

  • Lanoom

    God luck, but stay over on Fox, please.

  • No Holds Barred

    The Voice actually originated from a central European country, Holland I think (wow I am such a nerd)

    But anyway, don’t care for these types of shows, may give the first ep a watch before I shit all over it

    • bjorn448

      It is from Holland yes. How do I know? I live in Holland ;)

    My god she’s pretty.. too bad she’s not doing the wrestling thing tho. I acually didn’t think she’d get far, tbh…it was just in the back of my mind. Especially since she quit Tough Enough.

    • Choko

      wasn’t she eliminated?

      She was really passionate though. It was so heartwarming to see how much she wanted to win, considering that she was more of a beauty queen than an athlete.

    • norisclouds

      She seemed really into it and she’s beautiful, but bless her heart she just isn’t athletic. However, we’ve seen WWE keep around less talented women who weren’t as attractive, which makes me wonder if there were other reasons why she wasn’t given more opportunities with WWE, aside from the DWI.

    Hope Dworaczyk, Playboy Model
