Comet Incoming: Tatyanna Dumas Smashes Into the 2024 Season of ‘Gladiators’

Tatyanna Dumas is Comet on Gladiators

It’s coming. No one can stop the reboot of Gladiators from dropping next year. Nor can anyone stop Tatyanna Dumas’ performance as Comet. They’re both fiery, sassy, and ready to bring a battle dome into your living room.

In the original 1995 run of Gladiators, each episode starred a bunch of buff people competing in a gauntlet of physical challenges. These challenges included wrestling matches, obstacle course races, and aerial-based combat. 

The prize? Glory. The stakes? Higher than anything else that was on our TVs.

In 2024, Gladiators is returning with this format, however, with a few twists. We’re talking new challenges, a mystery opponent called Black Ops, and Liz Ellis and Beau Ryan as its hosts.

Another change is the creation of the character Comet. Unlike Elektra, we haven’t had this competitor in the ring before.

So, who is Gladiators’ Comet? What is this enigma going to bring to the arena? Here’s what we know so far.

Who Is Gladiators’ Comet?

Before becoming Comet on Gladiators, Tatyanna Dumas has worked as a qualified stunt performer and professional basketballer. She is also the Women’s Head Coach at the Sydney NBA Academy.

Tatyanna’s proudest achievement to date was being selected as NSW’s first and only female into the Australian College of Sport at the age of 16. She has also competed in Ninja Warrior in Seasons 2 and 3.

As Comet, Tatyanna will be confident and assertive. She’ll be the master of the sledge, causing destruction wherever she lands. 

Across X and Instagram, Tatyanna has been hyping up her performance as Comet.

“Your hero’s come from the depths and conquer those who feel they are worthy,” Tatyanna wrote on X. “COMET IS COMING IN.”

Gladiators is set to premiere at 7.30pm on Monday, January 15, only on 10 and 10 Play on Demand. Miss its premiere? Catch up on 10 Play.
