The Ref on AG...

Now, as you and I well know, the ref is the best part of American Gladiators. He is so fired up and he really gets into with the hand motions to make sure the contender is, in fact, ready.

I know what you're thinking, and I've written about this before, but how in the butt did he get this job?

Turns out his name is Al Kaplon and he is a former American League baseball umpire (and no...he did not appear in the Naked Gun).
Funny you should ask about the Naked Gun, because if you watch closely the next time you're watching Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story you'll notice that the ref there and the ref in AG are one in the same.
You go Al Kaplon! You bring joy to tens and tens of people every week!
