American Gladiators: It's #2 vs. #5 matchups tonight. For the men, competing tonight are Jeff Davidson and James Ruggiero. Their first event is Rocketball and the two Gladiators in play are Toa and Zen.
Tonight's females are Lillian Thomassen and Tiffaney Florentine. The first female event is Pyramid. Chasing Lillian is Gina "Crush" Carano and going after Tiffaney is Steel. Do either score...no.
The second male event is Atlasphere. In the Gladiator spheres are Hurricane and Titan.
James' lead is down to 2, 8-6.
The second female event is Tilt, and Hellga will attempt to pull both of her challengers in the water...she only gets Tiffaney into the water, as Lillian goes the distance for 5.
The men get the Gauntlet third. The four Gladiators in play are Zen, Wolf, Militia and Justice. Wolf decides to switch places with Zen for some reason. Jeff gets 5 due to a DQ against Justice for holding him down too hard...while Militia gets zapped by the ref for the same thing, allowing James to get a restart at the halfway point and going on to get 10, increasing his lead to 18-11.
Now, the women try the Gauntlet. This time, challenging both players are Jet, Crush, Phoenix and Hellga. Tiffaney musters her first 5...and Lillian gets the same result to keep her five-point lead.
The score's still 10-5 (neither scored in Hang Tough and Skytrack) for the females as they head into their final event, Joust. They face Crush again...and Crush continues her undefeated streak in this event, meaning Lillian gets a 2.5 head start in the Eliminator.
James scored 10 in Hang Tough and 5 in Joust, while Jeff didn't score jack in either event. Therefore, James now leads 33-11 as they get Powerball last. The Gladiators in play are Wolf, Titan and Beast.
With a final score of 35-13, James has an 11 second head start in the Eliminator. But considering that Jeff had the best Eliminator time before Tim Oliphant bested him, I wouldn't count him out if I were you.
Female Eliminator: If either lady wins with a time of 2:06.9 or less, they're definitely in the finals. Lillian has the lead but falls off the handbike, allowing Tiffaney to take over the lead. The winner is...
...Tiffaney, with a time of...
...2:06.2, not only the best female Eliminator time of the season, it also puts her in the finals next week!
Male Eliminator: Jeff takes a NASTY spill from the swinging rope into the handbike pit. Does he shake it off and pull it out for the win?...
...NO, James wins with a time of 1:43.2. That means James will have to wait until after the first half of next week's two-hour finale to see if he's joining Tim in the finals.
Wanna Bet?: Here are the stars and charities for tonight:
Tom Bergeron: March of Dimes
Melissa Peterman: American Red Cross- Minneapolis Chapter
Corbin Bernsen: United Cerebral Palsy and UCLA Rape Treatment Center
Richard "Rip" Hamilton: Rip City Foundation (Coatesville, PA)
Act #1: Mike Lloyd will try to literally kick himself in the head 45 times within a minute. The predictions:
Result: Mike does it with about ten seconds to spare!
(Note: Every time he kicked the button, the "Family Feud" survey reveal bell went off!)
Tom: $10,000 ($15,000)
Melissa: $7,000 ($18,000)

Act #2: Jack Ziemkiewicz and Justin Barnes, using a pair of tractors, must move one strand of spaghetti twenty feet and have it lie between the two tractors; then, with one of the tractors moving forwards and the other moving backwards, that spaghetti strand must be moved into a pool of tomato sauce without having it break in a 2:30 time limit.
While I say this will FAIL, everybody thinks they'll SUCCEED.
Result: The first time they really moved a strand of spaghetti...they did drop it, but it didn't go in the bucket. They FAILED.

This is now a lock game for Corbin.
Final Act: 11-year-old Kaitlyn Conner will try to do something that has been done on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" at least once before- skate forwards and backwards under a series of limbo bars.

CORBIN: $14,755- WINS AT $35,511!
