Hulk Hogan ("Hogan Knows Best") and Laila Ali ("Dancing with the Stars") host "American Gladiators," the iconic competition series, which returns with a fresh modern reinvention for the 21st century. Using splashy twists including special effects, water skills and the latest technology, the classic games will be upgraded with even higher thrills, impact, energy and spectacle!
Celebrating the everyday, true American heroes - weekend warriors who excel and take pride in their physical fitness - 24 contenders will go up against the show's Gladiators, charismatic and eclectic warriors - in the ultimate David & Goliath battle.
As in MGM's traditional "American Gladiators" franchise, everyday amateur athletes compete against the Gladiators in contests of physical strength and endurance. The series will include such classic events as Joust, The Wall, Hang Tough and the Eliminator along with two brand-new events including Earthquake and Hit & Run. The 12 new Gladiators (six men and six women) are action-adventure stars ready to takedown the everyday challengers with hard knocks and explosive attitudes.
