American Gladiators was a syndicated show in the early '90s that pitted your average Jo(e) Q. Hardbody against massive musclefolk, with bulging bloodvessels that made their arms look like Vermont roadmaps, in games of athletic prowess not seen since teachers started patrolling the schoolgrounds better at recess. Put ancient Rome in Spandex and hairspray and you'll get the idea.
This is from the first season, which was Malibu's only season on the show. What a shame. Please note his remarkable vocal resemblance to Steve-O from Jackass.
