Tool Academy 3

tool-academy-winner-jacob

It’s becoming more and more obvious every year that Tool Academy is a show solely for entertainment. How else can one explain Jacob Tapia winning the third season?

The guy lied his way through the show, picked a fight with almost every other contestant and quite frankly showed little to no improvement. There were more deserving winners, Kevin anyone?

In a new interview with VH1, Jacob talks winning the show and his relationship status with girlfriend Christie. They are still together by the way. Excerpts from that below -

So what’s happened since the show? How are you and Christie doing? I’ve been kind of low-key since the show aired, just because of contracts and I don’t want to get in any kind of trouble. We’re still together, we’re doing good.

How did Tool Academy change your relationship? It’s helped our relationship a lot. We have a lot more trust in each other. Going through the experience of the Academy brought us closer. We’re going great right now.

Some of Tool Academy’s couples have made a deeper commitment at the end, like gotten married or engaged. Have you two talked about it? Right. We talked about it. But we’re gonna wait and see what happens with my career, where we’re gonna live, whether that’s Florida or California. Then once we get settled, make the next move.

Those first few sessions you mostly were just aggressive. I think a lot of us were wondering how you stayed. I was pissed off. I was throwing stuff, breaking chairs and kicking over objects they had set up. I was really frustrated. Everything was overwhelming. I had lots of mixed emotions, I remember that. And a lot of anger.

Why did you turn on Jennavecia? Me and Jennavecia were cool in Cancun, and then we got to the Academy and I wanted to keep my distance. I didn’t want her to be too close to me because I felt like she would try to make a move. The thing about her is that she would talk a lot of s*** about how her man would beat my ass. And then I would approach her man and Kyle wanted no part of me. So that kind of got old after the third or fourth episode in.

Tommy accuses you of being a bully in the house. Were you? That’s not true. Nobody bullied anybody. Some people called me a bully because when I had a problem with someone I would call it out. On the other hand you had people like Tommy who would talk s*** about people. I would rather be someone who’s real and up front than talk behind someone’s back. Kevin stood up for me. He said, “Jacob’s not being a bully, Jacob’s just being Jacob.” If I don’t like you because you’re talking ****, I’ll call you out. That’s not being a bully. It’s being real.

How did you stay after getting into so many fights? I don’t know why…every week, looking back, I was getting badges, and I know there were people out there blogging about me, saying, “I don’t know why Jacob’s still around,” but I guess Trina saw something in me. The first week I think I should have been eliminated. I got a freebie because Chasyn left. It just seemed like every week I was going to be eliminated, but this person did something just a little bit worse. I don’t know why Trina kept me around, except that she thought I could change. She actually told me that I was a late bloomer, in the final elimination. It just took a while for things to hit home for me.

You think all of Angelo’s tears were for the game? Angelo is really fake. He’s a crybaby, but I think a lot of his tears were for money. I’m glad they saw through that.

Be honest. Were you there for the money? I wasn’t really there for the money. I will admit, though, when it got to the Top 3, I was thinking, “Wow, I actually have a chance at winning $100,000.” Looking back at it, earning all these badges, why not continue to grow? So at that point I was like, I’m going to do what I can. I’m going to show the Academy I’ve changed.

So what are your plans for the cash? There’s no plans for the money right now. I’m just going to put it in the bank and sit on it for a little bit. A lot of doors have opened since the show, so I’m going to have different avenues of making money and having a career, so I don’t have to touch that right away.

Tool Academy 3

Tool Academy is back! VH1 has released the latest cast photos and information for the third season, which is set premiere Sunday, Feb. 14 at 9/8c on VH1.

And there is a big twist this season as 2 females or toolettes will be joining the cast for the first time in the show’s history (one of them is part of a same-sex couple). One of the female cast members also happens to be Jennavecia, who was on the 2nd season of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club.

More information from the press release is below –

The first two seasons of Tool Academy documented the journeys of dishonest boyfriends as they participated in weekly therapy sessions and relationship schooling on topics such as honesty, fidelity and communication. Viewers witnessed the shocking arrival of secret extra girlfriends, a surprise wedding and the phenomenon known simply as “Matsuflex.” Each week, the tool that showed the least progress was dismissed, leaving him to plead his case before his girlfriend who chose to keep him or kick him to the curb.

This season welcomes the Academy’s first female tools, or “toolettes,” including the first same-sex couple. But make no mistake: these ladies lie, cheat and strut just as much as their male counterparts. After the most elaborate reveal yet, the new class will undergo lie detector tests, hidden cameras, focus groups and all new physical challenges until just 1 tool remains to collect the $100,000 grand prize.

Jordan Murphy will return to hosting duties and attempt to help these two-timing tools become reformed partners. Also helping to rebuild these broken relationships is couples counselor Trina Dolenz. Ultimately, Trina has the last say in which tools stay and which are expelled from the academy each week.

The finale of Tool Academy 2 aired last night with Terry Shaw ending up as the $100,000 winner. Terry was given a ring with the option to propose to his girlfriend, Nicole Mattox, which he did.

Nicole said yes and the happy couple rode off together in their limo. The question on everyone’s mind is are they still together? Well, based on a recent interview, it seems the two are still together and making things work. The couple’s exit interview with VH1 also revealed that they plan on tying the know within the next 2 years.

In the meantime, Tool Academy 3 is currently looking for a new set of tools. You can apply by visiting the casting page here.
