Episode Recap

Ellen tags along with Adam when he goes to try out for "American Gladiators", but the only way she can get into the arena is if she tries out. So she does. Unfortunately for Adam's dreams, Ellen makes the cut and he doesn't.



As they are leaving, Ellen is approached by Nitro, who proceeds to ask Ellen on a date. She says "yes", even though Nitro isn't really her type. After they go out a couple of times, he dumps Ellen, claiming there was no chemistry.



When Ellen arrives for her competition, Ice (Nitro's female equivalent) makes fun of Ellen because Nitro dumped her and because Ellen is a scrawny little thing. This taunting makes Ellen angry, and when the two women square off in the pugil-stick competition, Ellen lets Ice have it.
