Helmed by hosts Hulk Hogan ("Hogan Knows Best") and Laila Ali ("Dancing with the Stars"), each of the series� eight episodes features two male and two female contenders competing against each other for points -- all while the incredulous gladiators are lurking. The final two male and female contenders to make it to the end of this grueling competition will receive $100,000 each. In this episode Christie Phillips a karate instructor and mother of two takes on life coach Siene Silva on the women�s side, while Satellite Engineer Adonis Locket battles radiation control technician Jeff �Big Country� Chapman for the men. Stiff competition throughout the episode puts extra emphasis on the importance of the �Eliminator�. This hour brings a tight battle with small town heart and big time hits.
