A devoted lifelong WWE fan, MTV “Real World” alum Mike “The Miz” Mizanin competed on the fourth season of Tough Enough, where he finished as the runner-up.

Host and WWE Superstar Chris Jericho will be joined by a panel of judges, including WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan and WWE Diva Paige.
Every week, the three judges will each nominate one competitor they believe should be cut, and it will be up to the WWE Universe to vote and determine who they feel is “Tough Enough,” to remain in the competition. The competitor with the least number of votes will be eliminated. Throughout the season, each judge will have the ability to save one competitor from being sent home. Ultimately, one man and one woman will be considered “Tough Enough,” with each earning a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract.
