'Game of Thrones' fans: History unveils a jousting reality show

Posted on

It’s Mississippi, not Westeros. But the competition and violence is real.

History is rolling out a jousting reality show and EW.com has some exclusive first-look video. The show is called Full Metal Jousting and it follows a tournament where would-be knights strap on armor, grab a lance and ride at full gallop toward each other at 30 miles per hour. “It ain’t no dinner show,” as one rider puts it, though medieval armor has been upgraded to modern suits of steel (and there’s presumably a few pads under there).

Pilgrim Studios and History produce. You want to see what a real jousting competition looks like? Below, and tune in Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. for the show:

Gladiator fights are next, right?
