Chris Cormier tries out for NBC's American Gladiators
On Saturday, January 26, thousands of hopefuls turned out at Gold's Gym in Venice, California, for a casting call for Season Two of American Gladiators. Among those were several athletes from the IFBB ranks, none bigger - literally and figuratively - than Chris Cormier. The Real Deal more than held his own in the tryouts, despite weighing in at more that 280 pounds. But don't take our word for it - check out the video of Cormier's tryout.
