 Michelle S Kiddy came to the show with the hope of letting everyone know that age is just a number. Being in her 60s, Michelle has always made sure that no matter what work she does, she plays to her strengths to get ahead in the task. Even though she showcased her skills during the first two rounds of the show, she failed to win the task. 

Danny Moody and Luis Yuli were chosen as the team heads and had the task of choosing the people they wanted in their team. After Danny and Luis made their picks, Linda Goodridge and Michelle were the last ones left. Danny chose Linda for his team that left Michelle to be the last one to be picked. Michelle understood that people thought she was not good enough because of her age but instead of feeling bad about it, she made it clear that she was here to prove to everyone that her age will never be the problem. She showed people what she brought to the team in their first team task.

For the first group challenge, the teams were asked to lay up the tracks for the train to go on smoothly. With a lot of heavy lifting and some strategy planning, the teams had to come up with a plan to play on their skills. Michelle knew what she was best at and decided to stick to it. As the team struggled to lay the tracks right, Michelle decided to go ahead and start laying out the nails for the team to come later and hammer them to the ground. She admitted that being a gate agent, she was always prepared to think about a strategy that will help to enchase the results.

As she had expected, laying out the nails in advance helped the team as they were able to get to hammering the nails down as soon as they laid the tracks. This quick thinking by Michelle let the team to victory. Viewers also thought that Michelle was in the game with the motive of winning and people should not think of her any less because of her age.

"Michelle is my favorite person in the entire world and if you cancel her for me I’ll kill you," read one comment. "When I’m in my 60s, I hope I'm as badass as Michelle!" said another. "I'm rooting for #Michelle. A 62-year-old #short #bosslady," read another comment. 'Tough As Nails' airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on CBS.
