Move over Ladettes. Nine has picked up a VH1 series Tool Academy in which a host tries to transform wayward boyfriends into husband material.
The series gives ‘insensitive and clownish boyfriends a surprise wake up call’ followed by intensive relationship therapy. Each week, the “Tools” will get lessons designed to give them one last chance to save their faltering relationships.
A resident counsellor covers topics like honesty, fidelity, maturity and communication. The guys who don’t learn go home, but not before their girlfriends decide whether to keep them, or leave them behind to start over.
The man who shows the most improvement graduates wins a cash prize.
