What are your memories of the original series of Gladiators?
Shadow and his eyes, foam fingers, Saturday nights and everybody getting smashed in the Gauntlet. I was always dancing around the room whilst watching it.
Who was your favourite Gladiator?
Shadow, he was awesome. He used to smash everybody up.
What qualities does a Gladiator need?
Confidence and strength.
What can the audience expect from Tornado?
Aggression and energy. I'm never going to lose.
Do you have any words of warning for the Contenders?
Be prepared to lose, because you're going to get a serious whooping.
How will you prepare for battle?
I'll chill out with a cup of green tea. I don't need to worry about anything; it's the Contenders who should be worried.
Who or what is your inspiration?
Do you have any weakness the Contenders might be able to expliot?
Is that a sick joke?
Which events are you most looking forward to?
Powerball, as I play rugby league so the skills are quite similar and I'm looking forward to Hang Tough and The Wall. In the Marines we scale mountains and on camp we have our own wall, so I'll be up and down like Spiderman.
Were you afraid of the big bad Wolf?
No! I don't have, or have ever had, any fears. I'm a robot, a machine!
If you were an animal what would you be?
A gorilla or a polar bear.
