Gladiators

From Academic Kids

This is an article about the TV show "Gladiators". for historical Roman fighters see Gladiator.


Gladiators was a game show shown on ITV in the United Kingdom from 1992 to 1999, (though there was another, not televised, game in 2000) an adaption of the United States game show American Gladiators. The show pitted contestants in a variety of physical challenges against the staff 'gladiators', who would attempt to prevent them from achieving maximum points on a variety of games.

After this, the two contestants would race each other; on a course containing climbing, balancing, cargo nets, etc. The amount of points picked up earlier decided who would go first.

The show was originally presented by John Fashanu and Ulrika Jonsson. Fashanu was replaced by Jeremy Guscott.

The referee was John Anderson and the time keepers were Andrew Norgate and Derek Redmond. John Sachs commentated for the show and the Gladiators were cheered on by a group of cheerleaders, named The G-Force.
