Oh my gawd - I don't know who's scarier, the male or the female gladiators. The men don't even look real - they look like cartoon characters. The women are VERY BIG and very muscular. Both men and women gladiators put on this goofy macho act. All of them - glads and contestants - indulge in this ridiculous "I'm gonna kick butt" stuff. I just find it all too stoopid.
Hubby gets a kick out of it.
