Jacqueline, 32, says the unique part about the second season of the MTV channel's show is that women are a part of the fight league too.

"What's very unique about this as well is the fact that they have really encouraged the women in the sport. They are a part of every single team and they are just as important as every one else. That for me is like a huge achievement," she added.
