  • In an interview, on being asked how he met Sara Lee, his wife, Westin Blake said,

    We met at the Performance Center. When Tough Enough was coming out I used to go to a friend’s apartment and we used to watch it. I will never forget when they announced the 11 Tough Enough people. When Sarah came across the screen, I said to the guys, ‘I don’t know what it is, but I think she is the most beautiful woman I have ever laid my eyes on.’ It was crazy, this was before the show was even a thing. Just by fate, she ends up winning it. I was super proud of her. When you are that beautiful inside and out, it shows through the camera. I think that was what helped her win. We started talking at the NXT Combine. We were doing some weight room testing. We did the rower and I did so much that I threw up. I was in the weight room, head over a trash can as the girls were about to start, great first impression. She was so sweet that later on that night she messaged me on Twitter saying ‘Hey I hope you feel better.’ And from there it just took off.” [8]Sportskeeda
