In this post is your first look at the men who’ll subject themselves to tool-rehab come the Sunday, Aug. 30 premiere of the second season of Tool Academy. But first, here’s some info on what to expect this time around (via the press release):
Man panties? Testosterone filled fights? Surprise appearances by secret girlfriends? That can only mean one thing…the “tools” are back! A new set of tools are getting schooled as VH1’s Tool Academy comes back for a second season. That’s right, an all new class of nine unsuspecting men will be put to the test as they undergo a 10-week relationship boot camp, when the new season premieres Sunday, August 30 at 9/8c.
The first season of Tool Academy chronicled the journey of nine men who at first believed they were sent to a competition in search of “Mr. Awesome.” But almost immediately, the guys were surprised by their girlfriends and told they were really enrolled at the Tool Academy for some relationship 911. Each week the tools were schooled on proper boyfriend behavior on topics such as communication, honesty, and fidelity, with the one who showed the least progress for the week being dismissed. Once that tool was given the boot, he pled his case to his girlfriend, who decided to keep him…or not.
Returning to hosting duties is Jordan Murphy. As host, Jordan will help these bad boys turn into better men by overseeing all the challenges. Also aiding the tools is returning relationship counselor, Trina Dolenz. She will be there for the tools and their girlfriends as they undergo weekly therapy sessions to rebuild their relationships. In the end, it is Trina who has the last say on which tool stays and which one leaves the academy.
Below are up-close shots of all 12 tools, as well as some group action. Get ready to salivate…

…and here’s some more of the guys being predictably toolish (and Trina and Jordan, who aren’t toolish at all):
Remember, Tool Academy 2 premieres Monday, August 31 at 10:30/9:30c.
