GLADIATORS TO RETURN TO SEVEN IN 08!

Channel Seven has announced television phenomenon Gladiators will return to our screens in 2008.

Gladiators premiered on Seven in 1995 – and launched to massive ratings. The show pitted everyday contestants in a variety of physical events against the ‘Gladiators’. The likes of Predator, Commando, Vulcan, Storm, Glacier and Flame presented a spectacle of human endurance each week as they battled an inexhaustible procession of challenges such as hang tough, pyramid, powerball and swingshot.

The search now begins across Australia for a new generation of Gladiators and contenders. Are you ready to be part of the next generation of Gladiators on Channel 7 in 2008? If you think you have what it takes, apply now to be on the show!
