In a recent interview conducted for Ministry of Slam, Chris Jericho revealed that he was originally in talks with WWE to host Tough Enough. Jericho had the following to say:
"At one point I was in talks to host the show, but then Dancing With The Stars came up so it just wasn’t going to work out. Steve’s doing a great job – he’s made it his show at this point. But it could have been Chris Jericho hosting the show and it would have had a bit of a different slant. I don’t think I could have been as tough on those guys as Steve is. He’s like a drill sergeant. It’s fun to watch them squirm."
