'The Titan Games' Episode 2 Season 2 Preview: Can Joe Thomas and Chantae McMillan retain their titles?
After an action-packed and nail-biting premiere, 'The Titan Games' is ready to amp up the feverish excitement with its second episode of Season 2. We'll get to see reigning Joe Thomas again, who fought hard in the previous episode to retain his Titan title. And, we'll see Chantae McMillan ready to fight those who try to take the title from her. A little refresher, after a rocky start, McMillan steamrolled over her opponents, including award-winning boxer Clarissa Shields, in the previous episode. She isn't going down without a fight.
The official synopsis of the episode reads, "The competition continues with competitors pushing their bodies to the limit by battling opponents in unforgiving head-to-head challenges, designed by host and executive producer Dwayne Johnson. In these Central division battles, Kaleb “Doc Thor” Redden goes up against Michael “Opera Man” Hewitt and Dani Speegle takes on Nadi Carey. Winning male competitors will advance to face reigning Titan Joe Thomas and the winning female will challenge reigning Titan Chantae McMillan on Mt. Olympus, the consummate athletic test of speed, strength, agility and endurance. Cari Champion and Alex Mendez serve as commentators."
In the earlier episode, competitors went up against challenges like the 'Lunar Impact' and 'Launch Pad'. After winning against Shields, Chantae defended her title against Jamie Seeman, who struggled with the 'Iron Ascent', during the physically exhausting obstacle course, making it an easy win for Chantae. One of the best battles was between Bartley Weaver IV and Matthew Chan, who defeated him in the 'Nuts and Bolts' challenge. However, Weaver was determined to hit back and won in the 'Lunar Impact'. Matt didn't give up and won against him again and then went on to battle Joe Thomas at Mount Olympus. Thomas defeated him by just a second. Later, Steven Shelby battled Thomas at Mount Olympus but lost to him too. Thomas was right- he isn't going to make it so easy for the participants.
The show is hosted by Dwayne Johnson, who had anchors Cari Champion and Alex Mendez for company. What will happen in the second episode? Tune into NBC at 8 pm.
