Monica Carlson is one driven mom! Not only is she the mother of twin daughters....but she's now just 1 step closer to bringing home a hefty $100,000 bucks in prize money (as well as a new Toyota Sequoia). On Monday night, Monica made quick work of the remaining contestants on NBC's new hit reality show American Gladiators....and has punched her ticket to the finals. She remains sworn to secrecy....but I like her chances. The sports department knows the Carlson's fairly well. Monica's husband Chad is Lincoln HS's head football coach....and since our station boarders Lincoln....we see each other a fair amount.
What an awesome opportunity for the whole Carlson family! Everyone here at KGW is glued to the TV when Gladiators comes on. Keep it going Monica! We're thrilled that you have made it this far!
By the way, you can see for yourself if Monica comes away with top Gladiator honors. The finals are this Sunday, February 17th at 8 pm PST.
