Make Way for the 'Toolettes' as 'Tool Academy 3' Goes Co-Ed!!!

A New Class of Bad Boyfriends and Girlfriends Learns What It Takes to Fix Their Relationships in the Third Season of 'Tool Academy'

'Tool Academy 3' Premieres Sunday, February 14 at 9PM*

NEW YORK, Jan. 26 -- "Tool Academy" is back for a third season with bigger egos, even bigger secrets and a shocking twist�Tool Academy is going co-ed! That's right, 2 outrageous "toolettes" along with eight other hopeless "tools" have been secretly enrolled by their better halves into the Tool Academy, a relationship boot camp designed to shape up their relationship skills and change their selfish ways. The new season premieres Sunday, February 14 at 9PM.*

The first two seasons of "Tool Academy" documented the journeys of dishonest boyfriends as they participated in weekly therapy sessions and relationship schooling on topics such as honesty, fidelity and communication. Viewers witnessed the shocking arrival of secret extra girlfriends, a surprise wedding and the phenomenon known simply as "Matsuflex." Each week, the tool that showed the least progress was dismissed, leaving him to plead his case before his girlfriend who chose to keep him or kick him to the curb.

This season welcomes the Academy's first female tools, or "toolettes," including the first same-sex couple. But make no mistake: these ladies lie, cheat and strut just as much as their male counterparts. After the most elaborate reveal yet, the new class will undergo lie detector tests, hidden cameras, focus groups and all new physical challenges until just 1 tool remains to collect the $100,000 grand prize.

Jordan Murphy will return to hosting duties and attempt to help these two-timing tools become reformed partners. Also helping to rebuild these broken relationships is couples counselor Trina Dolenz. Ultimately, Trina has the last say in which tools stay and which are expelled from the academy each week.

Jordan Murphy's previous hosting duties include all four seasons of NBC's For Love or Money, USA's Before & After'noon Movies, Reality Remix, and seasons 1 and 2 of Tool Academy. Murphy is represented by IMG Broadcasting's Babette Perry and continues to be managed by Kathy Carter.

Trina Dolenz trained as a couple's counselor in Cambridge, England, obtaining a Graduate Certificate in Marital and Couples Counseling, as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Couples Therapy from the University of East London. She has run private practices in couples therapy in London as well as her adopted home of Los Angeles.

Viewers can catch a sneak peek of the season's first episode on VH1.com on Monday, February 8 � one week before the on-air premiere. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com the morning after they air. Additional video content from "Tool Academy 3" including extras and bonus footage from each episode will be available on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile throughout the season.

The series is executive produced by SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions. Jim Ackerman, Dave Hamilton, Mike Riley and Jeff Olde oversee the series for VH1.
