​Sara Lee Discusses Why She Thinks She Was So Popular On Tough Enough, Future Plans, & More


In an interview with WWE.com, Sara Lee spoke about winning Tough Enough due to her popularity while Amanda was considered the most well-rounded of the two. Here are highlights:

On why she was so popular on Tough Enough: It’s hard to say. Maybe they can relate to me, because I could be them. I was just this normal girl before I came down here. I was like, ‘I’m going to make this Tough Enough video,’ and then I got picked out of these thousands of people. Maybe they can relate to that. They see that I’m chasing my dream and they can connect to that, and it gives them hope in a way, too.”


On moving from Tough Enough to the WWE Performance Center: “I’m excited more than anything else. [Tough Enough] was a competition and being at the Performance Center is a competition in a way, too, because you’re trying to be the best when you’re there. In a way, it’s going to be a little less stressful. At the barracks, you didn’t have a closet. You had to pack your suitcase every time, so to have a stable home environment, I think, is going to help out a lot. Obviously, it’s not going to be easy switching to training at the Performance Center at all. This is just the beginning.”

On being excited for her future: “I’m really excited to get in the ring and learn more things, and now I’m not just on a TV show — I’m actually part of WWE, and that’s been my ultimate dream this whole time. That’s what I’m excited about, to make that more permanent transition into the company.”
