In the revamped American Gladiators (2007–2008), Gina Carano put her fighting skills to the test as she competed against other fighters as Crush. Season 1 of the revival featured 24 contenders (12 male, 12 female), while Season 2 had 40 contenders (20 male, 20 female). Men and women compete in separate tournaments, with two men and two women competing in each episode. In each episode, contenders take part in several events against the Gladiators, trying to earn as many points as possible before the final event, the Eliminator. Each point separating the contenders translates into a half-second advantage for the leader (or a half-second handicap for the trailing contender). Carano was a lot of fun to watch in this contest of strength and skill as a fighter.
Although Carano did not become one of the Grand Champions, this was still an excellent display of her skills as a fighter. Fellow contestants include: Jamie Reed, Jennifer Widerstrom, and Matt Morgan
