About Tool Academy | Season 3

Last year, VH1 struck a blow for frustrated girlfriends everywhere by taking some of America's most arrogant, dishonest, selfish, and unfaithful boyfriends and enrolling them in the one place that could reform them from their horrible ways -- The Tool Academy! A program designed to transform the worst boyfriend, into a knight in shining armor.

Now, a new group of Tools is set to arrive. But there's a big change in this semester's class... Tool Academy is going co-ed! For the first time in the history of the Tool Academy, females are enrolled and make no mistake, they are just as Toolish as their male counterparts. As in previous semesters, all the tools are nominated by their long-suffering partners who are praying their Tools can stay enrolled long enough to abandon their toolish ways.

It won't be easy. These are the Tools who parade through dance clubs, preening and posing while they bestow a great gift on world... themselves. They live in their own world where your spray-on tan defines you, swagger and style trumps all, and no one, is sexually off limits. They lie, they cheat, and they treat their partners like doormats. These Tools are in for a huge wakeup call.

Still under the watchful eye of our host, Jordan Murphy and couple's therapist Trina Dolenz, the Tools will live together and get re-trained together in hopes of reforming themselves, becoming better people and maybe even the perfect romantic partner.

But there's a catch. Since Tools this thoughtless and arrogant won't admit they have a problem, they must be tricked into showing up. In earlier semesters, these badly behaving fools were told they were competing in a pageant called "Mr. Awesome" or, they were in Las Vegas to compete to become the hard partying spokesperson for an energy drink marketed to women. This season, they will be lured to the Tool Academy under a shocking, new, top-secret ruse... a lie so elaborate it will take them to another country! It's the biggest, most complex, and most scandalous plan ever put into motion at the Tool Academy. A plan so surprising it's sure to deliver the wake up call these louts require.

Of course, the Tools quickly learn the truth... for the next weeks they'll enroll in the Tool Academy's grueling, but transformational, program. They'll learn lessons in trust, maturity, fidelity, appreciation, modesty, and more. They'll face grueling therapies, and challenges. If the Tools learn their lessons well, they'll remain enrolled. If they don't, they'll "fail" and will be expelled from the Tool Academy immediately.

Each week, therapist Trina Dolenz, leads intensive therapy sessions. When her unceasing observation detects one truly "incorrigible Tool," she expels the hopeless student. Upon elimination, the expelled Tool has one final opportunity to plead for forgiveness outside to the waiting partner. The partner then makes the toughest decision a person can make at the Tool Academy; whether to stay together, or break up on the spot.

In the end, only one Tool will become the Tool Academy's third graduate and walk away with a diploma, a satisfied partner, and a $100,000.00 cash prize.
