WWE has ensured the Tough Enough competitors by having the competition on SmackDown instead of its own show, they are exposed to a much larger audience. If the company would have had Tough Enough on its own show (as they have done in the past) they would only have been seen by about a third of the people, therefore this way they are more valuable to WWE down the road.
Company officials are said to be high up on Daniel Puder, the man who put Kurt Angle in a keylock last week on SmackDown. According to locker room sources, the company likes his look, work ethic, and the fact that he carries a certain sense of respect in his personality.
