You've armchair-wrestled them on Saturday nights, now see if you're tough or crazy enough to take them on in real life.
"American Gladiators," a weekly television show in which 10 professional hunk and hunk-ettes battle amateur challengers, will be in Baltimore Monday looking for victims, er, competitors. The one-hour show, which airs locally on WJZ-TV at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, has developed a cult following in its two-year history.
Tryouts for challengers will be held at 5 p.m. at the Baltimore Arena, and the winners will then compete against the actual Gladiators in an Oct. 16 show at the arena. Men and women interested in trying out are asked to wear gym clothes and will be given a general fitness test, including a 40-yard dash and push-ups.
