  1. Looks like a good cast other than Jett Kenny, who doesn’t really fit in with the aesthetic of the other gladiators. Seems like a waste of a spot and I’d rather not have a pseudo-celebrity as a gladiator. I’m not a fan of Beau Ryan as a host either, but other people seem to like him so hopefully his presence helps the show be successful.

  2. Oh dear no …. the costumes looks cheap and nothing we havent seen in a Mardi Gras Parade … has Australian TV stooped to this low … um yet we also have MAFS

    1. It’s a phenomenon called…a time warp…whereby a lot of reality tv is stuck …e.g revivals, remakes and reimagined..oh deary me..that’s my explanation and I’m sticking with it.

  3. I remember getting the big poster in the Herald Sun 15 years ago, I watched a few of those reboot eps, it was very overproduced, I think one of Seven’s big shows that year (also Beijing Olympics) but didn’t rate great, in a year they had and dominated just about everything else.
