Months ago, 32 life-sentence prisoners were dropped in 4th century Rome ready to battle through the world's worst historical wars with only their wits as weapons. The promise of freedom was their reward, eternal banishment in a primitive past was the price of failure. Through the dark ages, colonialism, imperialism; dodging arrows, swords, cannons and bombs, one contestant stood apart - with 12 consecutive wins and 0 losses. Never in the history of Race to the Future has one player showed such dominance.
A force of pure destruction, a fan favorite - ladies & gents, without further ado, give a fiery welcome to the McDonald's Bell 2112 AD, Race to the Future Time Champion
Lurkerleader, formerly imprisoned in Canada for war crimes, is now a free man with a 10,000,000 GUE check and certainly much more in endorsement deals to follow. Stay tuned for Lurkerleader's tales of time travel in his brand new reality show - Conquering Time, sponsored by iPhoneXLII - airing right after this on FUX network.
Thanks for watching and thanks to the other 31 contestants - wherever in time they now reside - for giving us a great show.
Til next year...
