So is it making too much of an arm wrestling contest to say that the people who won will get the contracts? I think Jake pretty much has it squared away for the men--let's face it, he at least *looks* better physically. Also, Jackie seems to have the most natural talent and apparently was moving around just fine with no major injury being apparent. So who will win?

Too bad this is live as I would love to read a spoiler right about now.

Jake and Linda most likely will win.

Jake has taken the contest more seriously than Kenny, and had and have taken more room to grow as a wrestler/performer. Besides, the hair makes him easily marketable from the start.

Jackie has shown guts being a bump machine for the past few weeks. But Linda has consistently been the best performer of all the contestants, man nor woman. Nobody can do what Kurt Angle and Madusa did in their first years, but Linda can immediately spice up the women's competition more than Maven did for the men's, and he did a lot in his first year.

Jake will win for the guys, pulling for Kenny.

NO contest: Jackie wins the contract over Linda.

I think Jackie is too much of an "ass"et not to have in the WWE. While Linda would make a good heel (cause she's annoying as hell), I think they could develop Jackie into a good heel. Just have her do something like turn on Trish and she will get a lot of heat.

DarkRenegade is a WWE plant to throw us off. lol

The first time I saw Jake I said "Okay this guys got to be a ringer" I mean the size and the look, he's a Vince McMahon creation already made.

As for the women. TE1 taught me whoever has the more impressive chest will get the nod. (I still don't get how Taylor lost out) With that said Jackie will win, I'm sure the WWE has her bikini all ready for her first diva shoot, plus she being protrayed already stronger then 90% of the women in the WWE with this huge babyface never-quit attitude... But I am cheering for Linda, because we already have a petit busty blonde, who bumps and sells like a mad woman (check icon), so that position is filled... Plus if (TE)Jackie wins does the same fate happens to Jaqualine that happened to one-name Tori when Torri Wilson came in.

Not that wrestling is the most politically correct business in the world, but do you think Linda will get the contact in order to add more "diversity" to the women's division? After all, Jazz is out, and a white girl got it last time. Damn...now I'm starting to think Jackie doesn't have a chance. Not only does she have the same name thing going against her but maybe has this political stuff to deal with too. Oh well...I guess we'll have to settle for just Trish's thick cleavage shots.

I really don't care much actually cause the women's division has been bland recently with all the involvement of the men. I was happier with Jazz vs. Trish vs. Lita every week than with what they are doing now. Maybe if Ivory gets her butt back in the ring after Tough Enough things will begin to pick up.

Honestly, it looks to me like all four finalists might make the WWE in some capacity. Then throw in Matt, who already got a developmental deal... Well, anyway, my picks are Jake and Jackie. However, Kenny will also make it; he just won't win TE2.

Jake kinda sux. Only reason he's as far as he is is because he tries his ass off and he has a great look. In the latest episode, they talked about Kenny as someone who always makes the person he works with a lot better. They need someone like a spike dudley to get beat up (and look good in being beat up) rather than a tough looking guy that can't wrestle. It just sets up better stories in my opinion.

If Jackie doens't win that would be sooooo sad. I think they invested too much drama into Jackie for her not to win.

I'm not sure if this had anything to do with it, but I recently saw Taylor at a Jersey All-Pro Wrestling event on the Boardwalk last Sunday. I think she looks great, but she's definately a chubby woman. Not to mention a horrible wrestler. Her forearms were worse than Rob Van Dam's and she blew two drop-toeholds. -_-;; She only won her match when Pete from TE2 ran in. He got a wonderful "You fucked Jackie" chant too. =)

Have they ever said that they are awarding one male and one female a contract? The last few shows they've been saying "two winners". However, since they cut down to 2 of each, it's probably a safe assumption.

And with that....

I'm also going with Jake over Kenny. I can't see the company using a tough enough winner to make the rest of the wrestlers look good (initially, anyway) and this is Kenny's speciality, according to the edited "reality" tv. So, Jake gets the contract.

I'm also calling Jackie over Linda, but my guess is that they make her get the proper surgury she needs to get into the ring before we see her...

On a side note, has anyone re-watched the TE 1 series, and noticed what looks to be Jackie in the final 25 with a much smaller chest? If so, I guess she really did figure out what the wwe wants....

It's been "2 people" all season, not neccesarly one male or one female...

...but they'll probably do it that way anyway, with the stipulation being more of an out so they don't have to take someone just to fill a requirement.

Well, since its been brought up now as a possibility, someone has to take the plunge and predict both winners being the same gender. So what the hell? I think they say Kenny's too small and bland and Jake is going to kill someone in the ring without meaning to, so they take Linda and Jackie, both of whom have something seemingly to offer pretty much right off the bat.

The women's division definitely needs to be filled out, but I don't think Average Viewer Joe would understand all of the business aspects of the TE2 selection process that would lead the WWE to pick the two women and ignore Jake. Plus, I don't think Linda has the looks to be a diva (but heck, they have Jacqueline and Terri).

How many casual viewers would jump out of their chairs in outrage and say, "DAMMIT MARTHA! JAKE AND JACKIE WAS ROBBED, I SAY!" if Kenny and Linda win? Most viewers go on looks, not skills or long-term ability or respect for the business or reliability. Think of the pops Nash always gets...it's because he's "Big Sexy (TM)." No casual viewers care whether he's lazy or poochie or causes backstage havoc.

The WWE wants to make the big cashola from Tough Enough and its winners. How many viewers would return to the show next season if they thought the winners this time were either (a) undeserving (b) uncharismatic. Kenny and Linda have zero charisma in my opinion. People would rally behind bitchy diva Jackie and bad-ass Jake.

I think the WWE will do the safe thing and pick Jake and Jackie. Jake looks like a warrior and Jackie has BIG JUGS. Jugs talk, my friends. Jugs talk.

I gotta go with Jake. I was saying him since the beginning because of his look and athletic ability. He will learn the moves and not kill anyone in the ring eventually. Hell Maven really only had his drop kick until he got some more ring time under his belt. I also read it on 411 that Jake quit his fireman job and is working out all the time so it is safe to assume he has won and is prepping. I also gotta go with Jackie but only for the personal reason that I hate Linda. Jackie has the look and the ability and has shown she has the heart. She came back for a second time almost didn't make it b\c she wouldn't jump into the fountain on the picks show and now wouldn't leave with the injury. WWF gotta love her desire.

I don't know, I wouldn't count out what spf mentioned. Although I do agree it would be hard to pass on Jake. If he can develop even half the mike skills that Maven has now he should be fine. *Acting* seems to be his weakest area as far as I can tell.

I guess we'll all find out tonight!

(P.S. I can see an awesome Jake-vs.-Maven feud where Jake turns on Al Snow for all the hazing he received and the young, uncontrollable stud tries to destroy both him and Maven.)

I know it's not right to quote yourself, but dang if I just ain't a modern day Nostradamus I knew the minute they didn't break it up by gender that I had this one nailed! And Kenny kinda says it was all about the boobies that made the choices, which just makes my night.

Well, when I thought about it, I couldn't find any flaws with the women, but I could with the guys. Jake = Too slow of a learner, Kenny = No charisma. But I'm guessing they'll both get developmental deals. Or at the very least, Kenny... he's got the skills otherwise.

For better or worse, spf2119 is psychic. I don't agree with the decision, obviously, and wish the guys good luck. NWA-TNC should at least give them a look - they already have promotion and training (at their competitor's expense), plus I imagine that they'll be dying to show up the WWE for making them look like idiots on live TV (and would do most anything *to* show up the WWE).
