A line wrapped around the building and a guy in a Spiderman Speedo and black wig was interviewing this group.
I was going to my gym – Gold’s Gym in Venice, CA. It’s a very well known gym as being the Mecca of Body Building. Honestly, it is the best gym I’ve ever been to (in my long line of 3 gyms, I can say this). But it’s a magnificent blend of neighborhood workout / health enthusiasts and overgrown / overtanned body builders (both male and female).
This line? The interviews? The speedo? They’re bringing back the “classic” competition network show: American Gladiator.
I watched a little of the auditions – the mini obstacle athletic course they built. There must be a twist about the Everyday Man competing because they were. I pondered the possible twist of this spectacle. Um…former wrestling champions come in to encourage or take down the contestants? Spontaneous doping tests? Hot dog eating competition?
