They were almost the same. They even had a male gadiator in the USA version who was the "pantomime like baddie" version of the gladiator Wolf in the UK.
There were no doubt some very slight differences. There were also a lot of events to chose from but there were only 5 events each show. So I'd imagine one difference was simply that there were some events that were played more in the UK than the USA and vice-versa.
But the main difference was I don't believe the USA had anyone so fantastic and to drool over like Jet in the UK
. The single reason many of us watched the show. Not just hot in looks - but quite outstanding in two of the events - "Hang Tough" and "The Wall".
