As American Gladiators gets set to relaunch with a new edition on NBC Sunday night, all I can recall of the original was that platinum blonde bombshell with arms the size of your thighs, Zap.
With a Barbie doll head on top of an Incredible Hulk body, she was so freakish you couldn't turn away. Her real name is Raye Hollitt, and plenty of folks are knockin' on the former bodybuilder's door these days. Here's a Q&A with her.
And, for only $24.95, you can buy a compilation tape of her many TV and movie appearances, the most memorable of which is Skin Deep, a Blake Edwards romp.
In that, she man-handles John Ritter's, um, manhood, like Chrissy and Janet never would. Good times.
A quick survey of the new cast didn't turn up anyone who could hold a candle to Zap, but Stealth (right) might make things worth watching.
And so will hosts Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali. Maybe they'll even incorporate some of Ali's dance moves from DWTS.
