  • The best of the best.

    Of all the male "American Gladiators" there were, and there were quite a few, Jim Starr (also known as Laser) was the best.

    He was strong, he was kind, he was entertaining, and yeah... he was also very handsome.

    When I was younger it was Laser who kept me watching every week. No matter what event he was in, he started it off with a smile for the camera and all the fans out there watching.

    He gave it his all for each event, and was hardly ever defeated, and yet you never minded when he won because he wasn't one of those "in your face" type athletes. Sure, he enjoyed a good victory, but he was never a sore winner about it, which is probably what made him one of the most loved of all Gladiators.

    Jim Starr - the name says it all.moreless
