“I tried out a few times,” said Alers to Bloody Elbow. “You know, they don’t have 45 a lot. They’ve only had it about twice, I think, 145s. But, I tried out. I made it to the final cut a few times, actually, and just didn’t make it to that last casting.”
TUF returns this Wednesday, September 4 and starts at 10 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
