Controversy and Pornographic Performance

Six cast members from various seasons of Tool Academy filmed pornographic videos for the website Reality Revealed, an offshoot of the gay porn website Straight College Men. From January through March 2010 the videos were released around two weeks apart. Stewart "Stew" Ellefson, Tyler Synon, Daniel "Dan" Jovicevic, and John Lamb of Season 2 appeared in videos, along with Matsuflex (Ryan Matsunaga) and Shawn Southern of Season 1.

A lawsuit was filed against Bait & Tackle, the company running the websites, by the production company of Tool Academy, who assert that all of these men are in violation of their contracts.

UK Version
