'The Titan Games' Season 2 Episode 6: Noah Palicia wins at Mt Olympus thrice, awestruck fans salute him
Noah and Wayne were neck-to-neck at Mount Olympus, with Wayne even overtaking Noah during the cage crawl. However, Noah caught up quickly and was deft with the ball and chain challenge
Noah Palicia is holding on to his Titan title with sheer iron-will and determination. After defeating his brother Eric in the Herculean Pull two episodes ago (still one of the best moments on the show), he defeated Superbowl player Victor Cruz at Mount Olympus. In the previous episode, he steamrolled Exodus Rogers, who had been winning every competition till then. But Noah wasn't done yet. In the latest episode, he was up against Wayne Skivington, who had just squarely defeated Robbie Rodriguez in a bloody battle of Lunar Impact.
Noah and Wayne were neck-to-neck at Mount Olympus, with Wayne even overtaking Noah during the cage crawl. However, Noah caught up quickly and was deft with the ball and chain challenge. It was a matter of seconds, but Noah won against Wayne. It's Noah's third win at Mount Olympus and it remains to be seen whether he can keep his title next week, as the previous finalists and Titans will return for their last chance at redemption.
Fans are full of awe for Noah and can't stop cheering. If I've learned anything from watching these last few episodes of @nbctitangames it's that you don't bet against Noah Palicia. #TitanGames," a fan tweeted. "That was tough, but Noah pushed through," another wrote. "Noah held on to his title after a TOUGH run for the finish!" a fan wrote. "Noah won the titan games for the 3rd week in a row!!! What a monster !!!! #TitanGames," a fan tweeted. Noah has been called 'Palicia Malicia' on the show, as he seems to be unstoppable. "Palicia Malicia!" a fan wrote. "This was so close, I'm screaming," another tweeted. As Noah is from the airforce, another wrote, "Noah has the pressure of the airforce," a fan tweeted.
On his game plan for the competition, Noah Palicia had revealed to MEA WorldWide in an exclusive interview, "Being the smallest competitor in the field, I had to use my speed to attack an obstacle early, but be prepared to suffer an endurance match to outlast the gigantic athletes I was competing against. I deadlift 420lbs, run 5 min miles, and push my body to the endurance limits on a regular basis so I knew I had to stall long enough to make them quit before I could attack and win."
'The Titan Games' airs on NBC, Mondays at 8 pm.
