  • show Description
  • Based on the British and American shows by the same name, this adrenaline-fueled series features seemingly superhuman contestants accomplishing challenging feats. The premise of the show is about permanent competitors called Gladiators playing against one time only challengers in different events. There are four different events per episode, with separate events for males and females. The points the challengers gain during the four events determine the time they start the last event called the Eliminator. The first challenger to finish the Eliminator is the winner of the episode. The episode winners then will compete in the finals series, with the winning challengers of the final series each will win AUD$50,000 and a Subaru Forester.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (48)

    • Outlaw: This is semi final time. If you're gonna be soft, you're gonna get outlawed! The boys here, we're firing, and we're ready!

    • Tom: (after Joseph lost to Tank in Whiplash) He's hard to move, it's like he's got cement shoes! Joseph: He's like a tank!

    • Joseph: That's what finals is about; you gotta keep improving. If you stay where you are, you only get left behind.

    • Phillip: (after Vertigo) He did get me in the end there, but he is a Hunter. If he doesn't catch me, he's going to go hungry!

    • Zoe: (after Amazon beats Georgie at Suspension Bridge) What runs through your mind when she's staring you down like that at the head of the game? Georgie: Nice hair, not much else.

    • Phillip: You gotta keep getting back up, mate. It's not how hard you hit, it's how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.

    • Tom: If there was one female Gladiator you wouldn't want to come up against tonight, who would it be? Kristine: Amazon, I think, has a little bit too much arrogance for my liking so probably wouldn't want to come up against her.

    • Angel: (after the Wall) Speed climbing isn't easy, well done Michaela. Once I got there, I really had to yank her off. But she's lucky she had an angel to watch over her as she fell.
