Hogan Vs. Flair: Dumb Enough is a JTV broadcast and virtual reality show done by Hogan Vs. Flair. The show is normally broadcasted on a weeknight at midnight. Most times it has been broadcasted on Thursdays to wash the bad taste out of anyone who has watched TNA impact. A live look-in on the house occurs on the day after the main midnight show. The show is strongly based from the show Tough Enough" That WWE has recently revived. It features 6 independent competitors (3 Male 3 Female) vying for a spot on the main HVF rosters. The winner will choose which team to be on; either Team Hogan, Team Flair, The Cover Band, or The Federation. It uses the Sims 2 game and every Sims 2 expansion pack.
All shows are streamed for approximately one hour. The format of each Dumb Enough week goes as follows.
Main House Show - Contestants interact with their surroundings and are assigned to train in skill points to prepare themselves for the wrestling challenges, and also to determine progress and eliminations.
House Challenge - A challenge may be a Household or an Immunity challenge.
