The Rock’s new athletic competition The Titan Games is here. The NBC athletic competition and reality TV series presented by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson premiered with two back-to-back episodes Thursday night. The debut episode featured 16 different athletes facing off in a series of grueling challenges. In the end, two men and two women have declared the first Titans of the season. Dwayne promised us we’d see something special, and the contestants upheld their end of that bargain.
The most exciting part of the night was watching Haitian truck driver, James Jean-Louis, otherwise known as the “Haitian Sensation” overcame the larger Anthony Fuhrman (245 pounds to Jean Louis’ 220) through the challenges on a mountain-like course with various obstacles designed to test strength and agility known as Mount Olympus.
