American Grit premieres Wednesday, April 14 at 9pm.
The reality show series is set in Washington state and will star WWE superstar Jon Cena. Military-based challenges are given to four teams and in the end, a one million dollar prize will be given to the winning team. Chattanooga born and raised Tabatha Armour, who is better known by some as Goldie Knocks #5 of The Chattanooga Roller Girls, went through several interview processes to be chosen as one of the final sixteen to compete.
Four teams of four, derived of eight men and eight women from across America, are spearheaded by a former military member–Navy Seal, Marine, Army and Army Ranger. The daily challenges force the teams to use their strength, endurance, logistics and strategy. At the end of a challenge, the losing team is sent “off to the circus.” The Circus is an obstacle course that ends with an endurance trial and the loser of that must leave the show.
Off the grid for almost two months—no cell phone, no facebook, she couldn’t communicate with her family–Goldie took on the challenge to find out how much “American Grit” she was made of. Just to name a few, she competes against a body builder, a Boston cop, gold medal Olympian, and lumberjack. “The Roller Girl” enjoyed being pushed outside her comfort and time zone.
After a tough year in 2015, Goldie figured there was nothing she couldn’t do as a single mother of two who just went through a divorce and lost her sister to Sickle Cell. She knew as long as she tried, she would be a winner. “I have always been the underdog,” Goldie said, “I like showing that never underestimate yourself and you can do anything you put your mind to.”
There’s so much to look forward to on and off skates! A new home with the Orange Grove Center on, get this–Derby street! The recently graduated bootcampers, now officially CRG’s bteam “The B-Railers,” hit the track February in Marietta for their first game!
