The other night I caught some of WWE’s Tough Enough and saw Miss USA Rima Fakih was a contestant. For those of you not familiar with Tough Enough, it’s a reality show that will reward the winning contestant a WWE contract. Or, as I like to call the prize: "The person most likely to do a job once the WWE brings in a real superstar."

I wondered to myself if Fakih was participating in the show just as a reality stunt or was she really interested in wrestling? As I did some research, it turns out she is really interested in wrestling. My kind of girl.

I was also impressed with Fakih when she attempted to cheat during the rope drill by wearing padding on her hip. Slick.

Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat, I say.

While I was doing this research, I also found out she not only fond of wrestling, but she is fond of baseball players as well. The rumor is she is dating Toronto Blue Jays’ left-handed pitchers Ricky Romero. Romero certainly has out-kicked his coverage on this one.

Perhaps this will explain Romero’s fast start to the season.
