On Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s series, “The Titan Games.”
Jessie Graff made a name for herself on “Ninja Warrior” but couldn’t pass up the chance to be a titan.
“Initially when I got the invitation, I was like ‘Oh, no. This is…I am not going to be good at this.’ As soon as I heard that in my head, I was like, ‘That’s why you have to’,” Graff says.
It meant changing up the preparation that had made her a ninja success.
“I had to take an extra ten weeks to change my training for Titan, build strength in a whole new way,” she says.
Graff’s titan test came on the heels of tackling another challen: Ten months of stunt work on the upcoming “Wonder Woman 1984.”
