A new show's coming to NBC on Thursday, January 3rd at 8pm called "The Titan Games" hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. If you're a fan of shows like "American Ninja Warrior" and "American Gladiators" then make sure to watch or set your DVR. You can see a trailer for the show below.

Another reason to check this show out is because some of the competitors are from New Jersey. I saw an article from Men's Health that featured all the competitors that will be making their way to the Titan arena. Let's get to know more about them:
