Watch Tool Academy
- 3 Seasons
Tool Academy is a reality show / game show that airs on VH-1. Hosted by Jordan Murphy, Tool Academy has been on for three seasons. Each season begins with nine to twelve beefy, handsome men entering a shared household. What binds these men to each other is their lack of moral value, arrogant attitudes, chauvinistic ways, and way overblown egos. Basically, they are total jerks. Therein lies the title, Tool Academy. Each season features a collection of jackasses that have been tricked into the house to learn how to be better men and boyfriends and/or husbands. Their added incentive is money, $100,000, but first they must survive tasks that award them with badges. What Tool doesn't like a little flair on his vest or jacket? Often referred to as a "relationship boot camp" show, Tool Academy has a couples councilor, Trina Dolenz, to help work out the issues plaguing the couples. These issues normally come from insecurity, the failure to commit and of course, lying and cheating. This is where the challenges the Tool must face also come in. Each week has a lesson such as: humility, honesty, modesty, romance, and trust to name a few. No matter how hard the guys try, they often fall into stereotypical traps. Being all alpha males, the guys often argue and fight, nearly coming to blows. They lustfully eye each other's girlfriends and wives and for some, they end up proving themselves bigger tools instead of gentlemen. The result, a departure from their relationships. Can a bad boy be a diamond in the rough? When these tools start off they would already consider themselves the best; gold and platinum with diamonds encrusted! Still, some of them do learn to be better. True emotions are displayed, while boys become men and couples on shaking ground find ways to better their connections. Tool Academy will provide its viewers with laughs and tears. And be a treat for anyone who enjoys a makeover or transformation.
