She has shed her skin to become one of the most feared warriors in Gladiator Arena. She stalks her prey with caution and strikes when it is least expected. Any opponent that faces her had better come prepared because there is no known antidote for Venom, who is lethal in any dose.
Venom's real name is Beth Horn and she's 31 years old. She discovered weight training after blowing out her ACL in a high school gymnastics tournament. In college, she blew out her other knee, spending more time in rehab. After graduating from college, she jumped right into personal training, leaving behind plans to go to medical school.
From 1998 forward, Beth has been a fitness model and a fitness competitor. In 2000, frustrated with finishing in third place several years in a row in the National Fitness Competition, Beth went for a walk on the beach to try to get in the right training mindset before that year's championship. She slipped on a rock and broke her foot in two places. Twelve weeks later, she was the overall National Fitness Champion and became a professional fitness uh...person.
She authored a book titled â€œThe Natural Way- The Holistic Guide To Total Mind-Body, Health & Fitness." She met her husband during the production of the book and says she took a year off to plan her "dream wedding." In 2007, Beth decided to compete in one last fitness competition. Luckily, the American Gladiator auditions were a week after that competition, so she was in top form.
Beth hasn't appeared on any other shows or competed in anything other than fitness competitions, as far as I can tell.
