Shirley the Spartan

Shirley the Spartan

A few months ago, Shirley went on an adventure.

This isn’t exactly unusual. She’s not the type to spend her time in front of the TV – and this isn’t the first time she’s been the watched instead of the watcher.

In Spartan X, Shirley is one of 12 contestants chosen from around the world to travel to Hungary and live like a Spartan while battling for victory. Strength of both body and mind, endurance, intelligence – the Spartans are pushed to their limits in every way they could have imagined, and beyond.

Spartan X premieres tonight – tune in on Insight TV to see the struggle begin, and check out Shirley’s contestant profile to find out what she imagined her strengths and weaknesses to be.
