Donahue woman to take on ‘American Gladiators'

Donahue woman to take on ‘American Gladiators'

Jessie Adams Foster laughs at the TV game show description that categorizes her as a “toilet paper saleswoman.”

But that’s how the 26-year-old Donahue, Iowa, woman will be known to the rest of the country Sunday night when she looks to wipe out her opponents as a contestant on a new version of “American Gladiators.”

“I’m the ‘tough single mom who sells toilet paper,’ ” the mother of three children — ages 7, 3 and almost 2 — said and then laughed. “That really made me feel like I wasn’t very exciting.”

(She is unsure whether she will be identified as “Jessie Adams,” her maiden name, or “Jessie Foster” on the series.)

She worked as a customer service representative for Great Western Supply Co. in Davenport for about a year until quitting in November, but spent most of the past few years co-owning a gymnasium with Pat Miletich, the nationally acclaimed mixed martial arts fighter and trainer from the Quad-Cities, and Collin Carney, her former boss at the paper company.
