World Wresting Entertainment Inc.’s Tough Enough is coming back with a $1 million vengeance.
The reality show, which aired on MTV: Music Television last season, will be part of UPN’s WWE SmackDown! Thursday nights starting in October.
The winner of this year’s competition will receive a WWE talent contract worth up to $1 million, the wrestling organization said.
"We are looking for someone to be the next The Rock or Triple H, someone with a great look, physical strength and charisma who's interested in becoming a WWE Superstar," WWE chairman Vince McMahon said in a prepared statement.
"Each week, these eight contestants will have to impress me and the millions of fans of WWE SmackDown! to prove that they are truly Tough Enough to be part of an elite group of WWE Superstars,” he added. “In the end, only one of these contestants will be able to make that claim."
