‘The Titan Games’ is a TV series which is produced and hosted by Dwayne Johnson. The Rock named the first Titan champions in just nine weeks after the show began. The final eight Titans fought in The Titan Games Championships until only two of them remained. The competitors had to face one more challenge in order to get to a final race on Mount Olympus. So, the Titan-Champion went home with a title and $100,000.
Season one’s Titan Champions
Charity’s life hasn’t been easy. In fact, she left home at 15 and worked as a cook and janitor. She was diagnosed with a heart condition at the age of 17. Nevertheless, she has proven to be an unstoppable and highly determined Titan.
“My whole goal going up this time was just to stay focused and calm, not allowing any anxiety or jitters to cause me to mess up. The whole time, I was like, ‘Just don’t make a mistake.’ Everything was a step by step process for me. When I hit the box, the top layer of cement caved in such a way that it was wedged and I had to pick through them all to find the key. I thought it would take up more time if I grabbed the hammer again. I just decided to get it out the best I could. I still don’t have any words. It still doesn’t seem real. I feel like someone is going to be like, ‘Just kidding!’ Right now, it’s still sinking in. This was not only one of the hardest physical things I’ve ever done, it’s the hardest mental challenge. Every time going into the unknown. I like it because it gets you used to just jumping over a cliff. Going through life not knowing what’s going to happen, but you know that you’re going to do your best and you’re going to come out on top,” she said when becoming a Titan.
James Jean Louis
James is a Budweiser delivery truck driver who has shown to have a hunger for winning since challenge one.
“I was over-the-top excited. I had jitters. I kept glancing over at Derik and thinking, ‘He’s ready. He’s so ready. He’s quick. I’m going to go even faster.’ Clearly, I couldn’t keep up. I knew that with the ball and chain, with the cage, I was just going to have to make him work for it. Honestly, I couldn’t sit still. I was ready to jump over it. But I waited until (the gate) actually fell and then I just started pulling. As I was pulling the ball and chain, I glanced over at the big screen and I saw that he was still pulling on the chains and I said, ‘Okay, here it is. Here’s where I’m really going to work.’ I just started slamming the Titan hammer. As soon as I got the first two cracks on the top, I said, ‘Forget them,’ and I threw it down and started digging with my hands. I saw the T, grabbed it, ran up there, and that was it.
It means everything right now because I basically spoke this into existence. I’ve called myself a Titan for years. My Instagram is Body of a Titan. Look at this. They gave me the stage and platform and God showed me the door, and I’m here right now. I’m shining. Thank you, Dwayne. This was hard work and dedication right here and I came out on top. Hard, tough, blood, sweat, and at the end you earn respect. I want to see what season two holds,” he said about the finals.
Most Memorable Moments
Charity Witt and Jackie Wood
Jackie Wood dragged behind Charity Whitt all the way until the competitors got to the stadium floor. Jackie brought the game to an even heat by hauling on the Vortex chains to drop her gate. The exhausted Charity reached the tomb by moving the ball and chain with a strategy. Hence, she dug for the relic. However, Jackie struggled and gave Charity an opportunity to freed her relic and claim the ultimate title.
James Jean-Louis and Derik Scott
Another memorable moment was the race between James and Derik. The majority of the race, they were near each other, but James received a lead to the Torch Crank. Hence, he used the trademark hunger to lift his cage, access the ball and chain, and achieve a Titan win.
