Now that The Pickup Artist has just ended, VH1 is releasing a new show called “ToolAcademy”…
Rather than trying to turn 9 “lovable losers” into alpha-males, this show takes 9 bad boys and tries to change them into honest, monogamous and mature boyfriends…
I believe that men who enter monogamous relationships should be monogamous…
The other qualities are important too but lets face it… these guys must have been doing something right to land such relationships with these women.
My question is after the change, will these girlfriends still be attracted to their boyfriends?
Let’s face it, if they really wanted such a guy why weren’t they attracted to a man with these characteristics from the get-go?
Why did they date a “tool”?
Why try to turn a gigolo into Mr. Mom?!?
I LOVE the psychology behind dating and male/female relationships! Once you GET IT, what seems asinine like this makes TOTAL SENSE!

VH1 AND 495 PRODUCTIONS TEACH HELPLESS ‘TOOLS’ HOW TO REPAIR THEIR BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS
Released by VH1
VH1 and 495 Productions Teach Helpless ‘Tools’ How to Repair Their Broken Relationships
“ToolAcademy” Premieres January 11, 2009 at 10pm*
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5 — We have all encountered them before: those strutting, preening, over confident alpha-males who lie, cheat, and treat their girlfriends like door mats. They are “tools,” and they desperately need a wake up call. VH1 and 495 Productions are taking 9 of these unsuspecting bad boys and sending them to relationship boot camp in a new series titled “ToolAcademy.” The eight episode series, hosted by Jordan Murphy, is slated to premiere January 11 at 10pm.*
The guys, all secretly nominated by their girlfriends, initially believe they are taking part in a competition in search of “Mr. Awesome.” But the tables are turned almost immediately and they quickly learn that they are actually recruits in the “Tool Academy,” where they will be schooled in proper boyfriend behavior–covering topics like honesty, fidelity, maturity, and communication with resident relationship counselor Trina Dolenz. Each week the guy who shows the least progress in the group is deemed a hopeless tool and dismissed from the academy. But there’s a twist: he must then plead his case before his girlfriend, who decides on the spot if she wants to keep him or kick him to the curb. In the end, only one man will be rewarded for his transformation with a $100,000 cash prize and the title of “Mr. Awesome.”
“This show carries the hope that buried deep inside even the world’s most incorrigible tool, there may actually be a good boyfriend waiting to be revealed,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Programming & Production for VH1. “Sometimes all it takes is a little self reflection…and eight weeks of intensive TV therapy.”
