I went to a taping of it last Saturday (they made us wait 6 fucking hours, the bastards, but the taping itself went really well). But let me tell you--Helga is one scary looking chick. This picture doesn't do her justice...she's like a Swedish beer girl on major roids:

Hogan was there and he was great. I think he's a bad fit for the show (inasmuch as they should have gotten someone with a big more classier clout--a Probst or that guy from Amazing Race), but having said that, it was so much fun to watch him. Plus, the crowd LOVED him, and he'd keep getting it all riled up.

They are all a lot older than I thought they'd be. Seeing them makes me want to do more push-ups....

First time I heard about this I thought "Hmm, could be interesting". Now that they're changing nothing about it, I have lost all interest.

what's there to change??
it's about regular-type joes competing against each other and going up against big bodybuilder-types... if it ain't broke don't fix it.

i'd prefer this to that survivor, "reality" tv crap.

What was the name of the guy who totally owned all the events on the original American Gladiators? He was like the Ken Jennings of American Gladiators.

The longest running Jeopardy champion. He was champ for like three months and made millions.

Anyway, I think I found the guy I was looking for: Wesley "Two Scoops" Berry. He was the Grand Champion of season five and also won all the reunion shows.

Its probably sad that I remember Two Scoops (not his real name though, just the nickname. Why would you go by anything but Two Scoops if thats your nickname?).

maybe he wanted wesley "gotta have my pops" berry because he's a pops fan and he didn't want the connection to raisin bran.

The Rock's cousin (and stunt double) is one of the gladiators!

This shit looks even more like wrestling than the 1st AG. I'll probably check it out.

I think he meant Nooner, as in "the people in American Gladiators are just asking for a nooner."

I'm very ashamed at how much I'm looking forward to this. I wanted to do the assault course on the old show more than just about anything in the world.

They should've got Linda Miles ("Shaniqua" from WWE) to be one the gladiators. She was a tough and intimidating lady. She could've given the men a tough time.
