It did not take a reality show based on strength, endurance and strategy to prove that Chattanooga native Tabatha Armour, aka Goldie Knocks from the Chattanooga Rollergirls, had grit. 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, severely injured her shoulder during a roller derby practice (a Grade II AC Separation) and lost her sister to Sickle Cell. She knew as long as she tried, she would be a winner.  

Goldie went through an arduous interview process to make it to the finals to be on the show and has given that same 110% to make it to the last episode. Off the grid for almost two month during filming, she had no cell phone, no facebook and she couldn’t communicate with her family. 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.

The reality show series set in Washington state, starring WWE superstar Jon Cena is coming to its first season, 10-episode end. Military-based challenges were given to four teams and in the end, a one million dollar prize will be given to the winning team. 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. Goldie has remained strong on the Blue Team also known as Team Rourke lead by U.S. Navy Seal Special Forces, Rourke Denver.

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. Goldie was put center stage on the season premiere when she was sent to the Circus and came out victorious. “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.” In last week’s episode, the last show before the finale, Goldie goes to the unpredictable Circus for the third time and shows that her statuesque model-like method proves a strong strategy to victory.

Watch the 2-hr season finale this Thursday at 8pm on FOX to find out what a “small and fiery,” self proclaimed underdog puts her mind to.

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.
