Spoilers ahead for the July 27 episode of The Titan Games on NBC.
Dwayne Johnson's The Titan Games delivered one of the most intense and neck-and-neck races for Mount Olympus on July 27, when reigning Titan Haley Johnson went up against Courtney "Quad Queen" Roselle to claim the top spot heading into the Eastern Regional Finals. Johnson was only a few moments behind Roselle, but those few moments were enough for Roselle to win and Johnson's streak to end. That said, a lot has happened in Johnson's life thanks to her Titan Games experience.
Thanks to The Titan Games and the casting process for Season 2, Haley Johnson met the man who would become her husband and the father of her child. Yes, Johnson met then-fellow Titan Games hopeful Blake Wright during Titan Games' casting, and in the span of six months, the two were married and expecting a child.
While Haley Johnson made it to Mount Olympus and stood as a formidable competitor heading toward the Eastern Regional Finals, Wright was unfortunately ousted by his preliminary competitor in the Season 2 premiere. That said, Wright explained to WTVM in Columbus, Georgia why he feels like he actually won:
Honestly at the end of it all, I really feel like I won it. Because I got a beautiful wife out of it and we’re having a family and I have a whole new trajectory for my life right now that would not have been possible because of the games. So, yeah, while I didn’t win it all, I really got something out of it that no one else did. And I think that’s a really big thing to hold onto for me, because I would rather have this than the title.
Although filming on The Titan Games Season 2 finished before production shutdowns throughout the entertainment industry, fans are still waiting to see who will come out on top. As of the end of the July 27 episode, Haley Johnson no longer stands on top of Mount Olympus despite defeating an Olympian to get there, but she does have a shot at redemption. Whether or not she returns to competition remains to be seen; it does seem that her Titan Games journey came to a happy end even if she's not the champion at the end of the season.
And it only took Haley Johnson six months for her to meet, marry, and get ready to build a family with her fellow former competitor! The Titan Games competitor took to Instagram to share a glimpse of the life she has with Blake Wright despite the end of her winning streak (and his lack of wins altogether) on Dwayne Johnson's hit show. Take a look:
Haley Johnson came into The Titan Games as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and registered nurse stationed out of Fort Benning, following the death of her father. She was able to be stationed close to her family in the final months of her father's life, and her story of what happened to her family and the sacrifices her father made for them made it difficult for me not to root for her on The Titan Games.
Now, even though she was dethroned from Mount Olympus and faces high odds of retaking her place on top in the next stage, I can at least know that her defeat didn't stop her from entering a new chapter of life that clearly makes her happy!
