Sara Lee and Josh Bredl became the newest members of the WWE after each winning a $250,000 one year WWE contract after being voted Tough Enough by the WWE fans.
Sara won the competition against Amanda Saccomanno, getting 64% of the total votes. Sara dominated everyone in the voting every time she was in the bottom 3 and was considered a sure winner due to the popularity she had throughout the 10 weeks on the show.
Josh defeated Zamaraiah “ZZ” Loupe in the final by a wider margin than expected, winning 70% of the votes. ZZ won almost all the votes when he was in the bottom 3 although last week Josh also beat him in the voting when Tanner got eliminated.
The two will now be reporting to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where they start their journey to become a WWE Superstar and Diva. Winning the competition does not mean automatic call-up to the WWE and judging by history, the odds are not really in the favor of the winners. The last winner of Tough Enough, Andy Leavine, did not last very long and was released as soon as his deal expired.
On Tough Talk, the judges and coaches all thought Josh was the proper winner however all six of them thought Amanda should have won and that the WWE Universe got it wrong in giving Sara the win.
