After finishing first in the Eliminator to win the competition, Evan said, “I wanted this to be a special moment for my family, for my friends, for everyone watching at home, and especially for my mom. I love her. I was doing that for her.”
The female winner of American Gladiators was Monica Carlson. Monica is thirty-two years old, a mother of twins, and a sports model. Monica Carlson defeated life wellness coach Shanay Norvell to claim the American Gladiators title.

I’m so tired.” Monica’s husband and two twin daughters joined her on stage to help her celebrate her victory.
As the winners of American Gladiators, Evan Dollard and Monica Carlson each receive one hundred thousand dollars and a brand new Toyota Sequoia. They also win the right to become Gladiators on the next season of American Gladiators.
