‘American Gladiators’ Feeling Power Of Spandex

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The cast of the new American Gladiators is feeling speedy and strong in their spandex.

Wolf and Siren are among the 12 new Gladiators in the hit NBC show, and they say their metallic, stretchy costumes are fun and comfortable to wear during the tough physical competition.

Although both Siren and Wolf were huge fans of the original 1980s American Gladiators, they think they “lucked out” with more modern and updated spandex costumes in the revamped series.

Siren explains, “Our costumes are MUCH better than the ones from the 80s. I was definitely nervous that I was going to have to wear one of those old, one-piece spandex bathing suits the Gladiators used to wear. But, luckily, our costumes are cool, comfortable, and they fit us well.”

Wolf adds, “My costume looks like a harness, but I like it. It’s very secure. I’m okay with the spandex. I’ve actually been standing around in spandex for years, just waiting for American Gladiators to come back!”

The American Gladiators season finale airs this Sunday (Feb. 17) on NBC.
