The contestants will be schooled by relationship counselor Trina Dolenz and in each episode, the bad boy who shows the least amount of progress is eliminated from the competition. Upon being eliminated, each ousted contestant will then have to plead his case to his girlfriend, who will then immediately decide if she wants to keep him or kick him to the curb.
At the conclusion of the eight-episode series, one contestant will win the $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 VH1 programming executive Jeff Olde. "Sometimes all it takes is a little self reflection... and eight weeks of intensive TV therapy."
Tool Academywill be hosted by Jordan Murphy, whose previous reality hosting credentials include all four seasons of For Love or Money -- which premiered on NBC back in 2003.
Tool Academyis being produced by A Shot At Love producer SallyAnn Salsano and her 495 Productions production company.
