Returning tonight is one of the competition’s highest scoring female challengers Kim Papp. In her heat, fire officer Kim careered through the Gauntlet; crossed the Hit and Run bridge three times; surprised Destiny by beating her; and sped up the Wall leaving Nitro in her wake. After amassing so many points, she went into the Eliminator with a time advantage and built on her lead for a substantial win – how will she do this time around?
On the other hand, her challenger, Jacquie Watson from Sydney, wasn’t as competitive against the Gladiators. Amazon beat her easily on Duel; Olympia outran her on Vertigo; Viper wouldn’t let her pass on Pyramid; but she managed to dodge balls on Hit and Run. Despite her two-second disadvantage, Jacquie overtook her rival to win by two seconds in the Eliminator – how will she stand up against the Gladiators this time?
Joseph Mckay from Victoria became another notch on Thunder’s belt with an easy knockdown on Duel but managed to beat Scar to the finish ring on Vertigo. He couldn’t get past Kouta on Pyramid and ducked and weaved the demolition balls of Hit and Run – will he make the final cut this week?
His challenger, Lincoln Burns from Victoria, failed to score in the Gauntlet; couldn’t dodge the balls on Hit and Run; Thunder proved too much of an obstacle on Sumoball; and he out-climbed Hunter on the Wall. With an event start on the Eliminator, he bolted ahead for the win – will he be so lucky this time?
Who will go on to become the two overall winners of the series (one male and one female) sharing in $100,000 and two All Wheel Drive Subaru Foresters?
