  • They can dish it, but can the Gladiators take it?

    There's something satisfying about watching a Gladiator suddenly become really human. When Militia snapped during the Gauntlet, I had to laugh. How many contenders have accidentally been swiped in the face, bruised, battered, and upset? Yet all it took was one (very clearly accidental) swipe to the face for Militia to snap. He grabbed the contender around the middle and wouldn't let go. He was yelling and angry, telling the referee to ask the contender what happened. Oddly enough, these brief angry outbursts only seem to happen during this event. The last time it happened was last season when the contender false started and grabbed the gladiator's equipment. That one was justified, and it was the gladiator who took his hands away. Still, he was upset and had no problem letting the contender know that. Which leads me to question: could they handle being contenders? Perhaps only Jet and Rocket can truly answer that question.moreless

    • The event Atlasphere, a fan favourite from the original American Gladiators show, appears for the first time in the revived series in this episode.

    • Four events were recapped rather than shown in full – Pyramid and Tilt for the men, and Hang Tough and Skytrack for the women. They can be viewed in their entirety on the show's official website.

    • Matt Morgan makes his début as Beast, the last of season 2's new Gladiators. Morgan is a professional wrestler, currently working for the TNA wrestling company.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Vanessa: It means nothing if we can't be a role model for people at home and inspire everybody else to wake up in the morning and be ready to be aggressive, get out there, tackle your dreams, don't stop 'til you get there!

    • Commentator: America's had a crush on Crush since day 1!

    • Ally: I'm gonna go out there and try and be like butter and get on a roll, baby!

    • Vanessa: (before Gauntlet) This is actually one of my favourite events. You get a little bit of aggression, a little bit of violence, and a lot of pain. It's everything a girl could want!

    • Titan: (to Tim before Tilt) See, you can't run away this time. You're tied to me now; I don't have to chase you.

    • Brick: (before facing Beast at Joust) Thank God I'm a little bit crazy, because that's one big dude over there!
