Mandy Rose has already outlasted much of her Tough Enough competition.
The Tough Enough runner-up has already appeared on NXT TV on multiple occasions -- faster than almost all of her cast mates. Even though Mandy made her name on the USA Network, Mandy has fallen in love with pro wrestling.
"Reality TV has its perks and has given me a ton of exposure, not only in WWE, but also in mainstream media. However, training and performing in NXT has captured my heart and soul. I know that, someday, I'll look back and cherish every moment I spent with NXT. The camaraderie amongst the athletes and training staff is invaluable. Performing for live audiences and seeing the fans' faces is a thrill like no other. In short, I'm hooked, and I'm not stopping until I become the greatest female Superstar the NXT Universe has ever seen," Mandy told WWE.com.
Despite the fact that pro wrestling has humbled her since her Tough Enough days, Mandy still feels as if she has plenty to set her apart from other talents in NXT.
"Clearly, NXT has been blessed with amazing, one-of-a-kind athletes. Our talent have great figures, they're charismatic and beautiful in their own way. However, I am the total package. I have the body, the face, the athleticism, the strength, the personality and the star quality. I have it all. No one in NXT looks and performs the way that I do. And, to top it off, I'm just getting started," Mandy said.
Many was runner up in last year's Tough Enough to Sara Lee, who was released by WWE earlier this year.
