Entering tonight’s Tough as Nails season 3 finale, we knew that there were four contenders in play: Elizabeth, Lia, Quincey, and Jerome. Phil Keoghan had promised online one of the most challenging fights to the finish ever and just on the basis of that alone, it was easy to say that whoever took this home really deserved it.
So what transpired over the course of the hour? First things first, we saw an elimination before the final showdown with Elizabeth unfortunately coming just short. All of those Overtimes for Quincey throughout the season worked in his favor! He was able to handle the pressure and prepare himself for whatever was next without too much of a problem. This meant that the final three were all from Dirty Hands with Lia, Jerome, and Quincey all facing off for the title. There was some unpredictability left in the show still!
Now, let’s get to the actual results: Lia is the winner! She managed to pull off a really impressive victory, winning the cash and also the championship belt. One other thing that we love is that we got some updates on all of the contestants after the fact. It adds to the overall heart and spirit of this show, and that’s not something that a lot of other reality competitions will bring to the table. So many other ones out there save the winner reveal until the very last second, to the point where there’s no real time at all to bask in the victory.
Of course, this caps off another fun season of Tough as Nails — it’s a nice bit of TV comfort food in that the contestants are likable and it’s never trying to be too negative or overly dramatic. Also, it’s different from most other shows out there in the genre.
