GREAT FALLS – This Thursday, Matt Cable’s journey will come full circle. The Great Falls native and cancer survivor is set to make his debut on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s show, The Titan Games, on NBC.
NBC released a promo video showcasing Cable’s upcoming appearance on social media. Click the video above to watch.
MontanaSports.com detailed Cable’s story earlier this year before the show premiered. Cable will appear on the seventh episode but won’t be stateside to watch.
The 28-year-old airman is currently deployed overseas and continuing to train. He can’t discuss the results of the show, which was filmed in 2018, but told MTN Sports, “I hope I made Montana proud.”
Service is important to Cable, and while he won’t be able to watch the show with the rest of us, he’s excited for the world to watch him compete.
“It’s OK. My dad is going to record it for me,” Cable said. “I’ll be gone seven or eight months, which is just another chapter of my life. I’ll be deployed with my team. There’s that saying, ‘Service before self.’ And I do live by that. So being in the service and fighting for my country is big for me.”
The Titan Games airs at 7 p.m. Thursday on NBC. The show features people from across America competing in endurance-based mental and physical challenges of “epic proportions” for the title of Titan. At the end of the season, Titans will compete to “become the last male and female standing.” The show is marketed with the tagline, “Titans aren’t born. They’re Made.”
