Jessie Graff: The Titan Games Journey
After being introduced as a Pro Titan in the second season of the extreme obstacle course competition, Graff qualified to participate in the second-to-last facet as she tried to defend Mount Olympus. Her opponent was Kelly Valdez and they had to battle it out in the obstacle challenge called Ball and Chain. But since the massive ball was almost 60 pounds more than Graff’s body weight, she could barely make it budge. Valdez powered on and proceeded to the final challenge, Titan Tomb, and grabbed the Titan Seal, thus bagging the win.
Graff did complete the course and earned the last chance at redemption. The next episode teamed her up again with Valdez and the two had to partake in an obstacle called Resistance. While connected, they were required to throw five 75-pound barrels over a barrier. Graff managed to move four of the five barrels but could not fling them down. Then, Alex Mendez made a surprise announcement, the one to get one barrel over the side would win. Valdez completed the task, and Graff had to say her farewell to the show. But she left with a smiling face, hugging her opponent and thanking her fans for their continued support.
