Chelsea Green was on WWE Tough Enough, but most fans done connect her with the show. She didn’t last long, but looking back she can see why. Green now believes that the producers of that WWE reality television show knew who was going to win before they even started.
During her podcast, Green With Envy, Chelsea Green discussed her time on Tough Enough. She remarked how she was in the middle of the road and she didn’t give them a character. Green admitted that she didn’t give the producers much to edit with her, but she could have brought a bitchy character to bring more life into her time on the show. In the end, she is convinced that the producers already knew who they wanted to move onto the final weeks of the show and there was nothing she could have done at a certain point after their minds were made up.
“On one hand, I was like, how can I not win this? I’m the only person who knows wrestling. I think what I forgot is that it’s WWE, and they choose the narrative. They choose who they want to look good or to not look good. One thing I will say is, at the time, I just didn’t have the uber sexiness that Mandy (Rose) did. I wasn’t the underdog. I wasn’t Sarah (Logan), but I wasn’t this sexy bombshell like Mandy. I fell somewhere in the middle, and I think that was kind of my downfall.”
“Had I picked a character, had I been the mean girl, or the bitch, maybe I would have gone farther. That’s just the name of the game in wrestling. I have to say, I really did think that I had a chance of winning it. What I’m realizing as I get older is that I feel as if they had chosen who the winners were going to be from the start. I was told, I don’t know if you remember the very first episode, but it has me coming off as a bitch. I walk in, I have a glass of Vodka, and I do all this stuff that I just wouldn’t do, but the producers asked me to do it, so I was willing to do it.”
“Of course, as time goes on, you show your true colors, and my true colors is that I get along with girls. I got along with everybody in the house. You can only fake that so much.”
Tough Enough hasn’t been back in a long time, but you can never say never about WWE bringing back that old idea. Fans seemed to reject Tough Enough winners, and they all have a steep hill to climb after breaking into the WWE Universe using unconventional means. Chelsea Green decided to go another way about things, and it doesn’t sound like she’s too upset about how things turned out for her.
