Terry "T Shaw" Shaw became known as a contestant on VH1’s Tool Academy. He was given the nickname “Dancin’ Tool” because of his tendency to hit the clubs frequently. He works as a roofer away from home, but when he comes back he doesn’t immediately look for his girlfriend Nicole. He instead hangs out with friends and parties. On the show, he worked hard to change his lifestyle and ended up winning the competition. He and Nicole were engaged soon after.
