For its 17th season, The Jerry Springer Show is getting a modern makeover with three new security guards who are putting a feminine touch on the shows trash-talking tradition of flying fists.
Mimi Madrigal is part of the Springer squad, but as one of Chicagos finest, the city chick is more into handing out headlocks than beauty pointers.
Madrigal says, Weve had a couple people say Whats the deal with female security guards? But they realize were just as tough as the guys. I have three brothers. Ive fought with them all my life.
To get prepped for the gig, she and her gritty girls got takedown tips from Jerry Springers former head of security Steve Wilkos, and according to Madrigal, the bald badass taught them well.
She says, Steve showed us how to handle things. But as a team, we could definitely take him!
The Jerry Springer Show swings onto screen today (Sept. 17).
