Atlas, Sam Bond

As strong as He-Man, fights hard and with dignity.

Atlas is a natural bodybuilder competing for the British National Bodybuilding Federation and the National Physiques Association. In 2006, he came third in the national championships behind two professional bodybuilders. Atlas is one of the highest ranked amateur natural bodybuilders and hopes to get his pro card this year. Outside of the arena, Atlas is a charity fundraiser.


What are your memories of the original series of Gladiators?
Watching Hunter kick ass on the Pyramid. And of course there's Wolf as the baddie and Jet doing the splits. Everyone was physically perfect and they kicked ass.

What qualities does a Gladiator need?
Stamina and, without a doubt, a healthy ego.

What can the audience expect from Atlas?
I'll be a sore loser if I do lose, so I guess they can expect lots of victories.

Do you have any words of warning for the Contenders?
Don't insult my mum!

Do you have a weakness the Contenders could exploit?
I love pizza. If they bring some junk food into the arena I'm screwed; slap me round the face with a burger and I'll be on my knees.

Were you afraid of the big bad Wolf?
No! I'd love to go up against him though. I really hope they bring back the original Gladiators to take on the new ones. It'd be awesome to tackle Hunter, Wolf and Warrior.

Which events are you most looking forward to?
I'm really looking forward to Pyramid and Duel - that's the iconic event, everyone remembers Duel.

If you were an animal what would you be?
Apparently one of my spiritual guides is a white tiger. And I've always had a fascination with sharks.
