The twelve gladiators that will take part in the American Gladiators reality competition show have been revealed. The twelve gladiators will consist of six men and six women, and they will take on twenty-four competitors.
The new gladiators along with their NBC bios are listed below:
JUSTICE (Justice Smith) – Height: 6’8″ Weight: 290 – Tipping the scales at almost 300 pounds of power and with 20-inch guns at his disposal, Justice does indeed have a very long arm, and he’ll pursue any adversary to the ends of the earth to prove it. Ask any of his opponents and they’ll tell you that sometimes Justice hurts, and the scales always tip in his favor.
TOA (Tanoia Reed) – Height: 6’3″ Weight: 240 – With his tribal garb and distinctive tattoos, he may conjure up images of an island paradise, but facing him in battle is pure hell. Drawing on the power of his ancestors, Toa has the strength of a thousand warriors flowing through his veins, and he will never, ever show mercy.
TITAN (Mike O’Hearn) – Height: 6’3″ Weight: 251 – With nearly godlike strength and skill, he is the ultimate warrior. Able to physically dominate foes with his impressive physique, he is equally adept at mind games and will attempt to mentally defeat opponents before the battle even begins. Titan is a double threat who will find a way to win,one way or another.
MILITIA (Alex Castro) – Height: 6’3″ Weight: 220 – Militia targets his opponents with tactical precision. With an impressive arsenal of skills at his disposal, he is well equipped for any operation and will do anything to complete his objective. Once Militia has you in his sights, you’d better have a plan, or the game is over.
WOLF (Don “Hollywood” Yates) – Height: 6’4″ Weight: 225 – When you enter Gladiator Arena keep an eye out for Wolf! Able to smell fear and always going for the jugular, Wolf is 230-pounds of primal fury. He will ferociously defend his turf, and thrives on the opportunity to sink his teeth into any challenge.
MAYHEM (Romeo Williams) – Height: 6’5 ” Weight: 230 – A storm of smoldering intensity and lightning-quick reflexes, Mayhem unleashes waves of devastation through the ranks of even the most battle-hardened opponents.
CRUSH (Gina Carano) – Height: 5′ 8″ Weight: 141 – Don’t let the winsome smile fool you… Crush earned her well-deserved moniker by smashing opponents into submission. Despite her girl-next-door looks, she’s a powerful, fierce opponent who has no problem handling the women competitors, and then going back to breaking men’s hearts.
SIREN (Valerie Waugaman) – Height: 5’9″ Weight: 145 – Consider yourself warned when Siren is heard in Gladiator Arena. She is a force to be reckoned with who will go off at the slightest provocation! Pay close attention to her every move, or Siren will wail, on you!
VENOM (Beth Horn) – Height: 5’8″ Weight: 142 – Venom has shed her skin to become one of the most feared warriors in Gladiator Arena. She stalks her prey with caution and strikes when it is least expected. Any opponent that faces her had better come prepared because there is no known antidote for Venom, who is lethal in any dose.
FURY (Jamie Kovac) – Height: 5’7 ” Weight: 148 – Fury takes ferocity to a whole new level. At 5-feet, 8-inches, she is a maelstrom of raw aggression and the epitome of the female gladiator. Equally balanced in speed and strength , Hell hath no fury like, Fury. Period.
STEALTH (Tanji Johnson) – Height: 5′ 2 ” Weight: 123 – She flies under the radar for a swift and unexpected attack, and any adversary caught unaware will get a swift lesson in shock and awe. Immensely strong and cool under pressure, she executes her favorite move — a quick counter-attack that you never see coming.
HELLGA (Robin Coleman) – Height: 6’1″ Weight: 205 – When she stomps into Gladiator Arena, most sensible opponents run for cover rather than risk a Viking funeral. She may have left her horned helmet on the boat, but she hits with the force of Thor’s hammer, and quickly sends opponents straight to Valhalla.

The show features everyday amateur athletes competing against the gladiators in contests of physical strength and endurance.
