Will Viking Enter Valhalla on ‘Gladiators’ Next Year?

On Gladiators, Jett Kenny is Viking.

Put on your spandex, don your fighting gloves, because Gladiators 2024 is just around the corner. This series will feature some superb, melodramatic costumes, including a male gladiatorial combatant named Viking who proudly exposes his midriff.

Moreover, Gladiators is not just a showcase of excellent costume designs. It’s a competition that pits man against man and woman against woman. Through a series of obstacle courses, wrestling matches, and feats of strength, these buff Aussies compete to win the adoration of our country.

According to Liz Ellis, the co-host of Gladiators, next year’s show will be one for the history books. In an interview with The Latch, she explained what this competition is bringing to our entertainment table. 

“I think the viewers can expect some great family viewing,” Liz said on the phone. “At the heart of it is this contest, this David versus Goliath contest. It’s a sporting spectacle wrapped in fun and entertainment. So I think it just makes for some really great family TV.

“I’m so excited for it to finally be released because we had so much fun making it. I love working with the Gladiators.”

So, now that we know the stakes of Gladiators, how will Viking go? Will he be a David or a Goliath? Here’s everything that we know.

Who Is Viking on Gladiators?

In 2024, Viking on Gladiators is portrayed by Jett Kenny, a 30-year-old man representing Queensland. Jett is best known for his appearances on SAS, Ninja Warrior, The Real Full Monty, and Dancing with the Stars. When Jett is not gracing our TV screens, he works as a Surf Lifesaving Ironman, model, and lifesaver.

Across social media, Jett has been hyping us up for his performance as Viking.

“You wouldn’t want to get on Viking’s bad side,” Jeff wrote in one reel.
