Clarissa Chun has been in her share of big wrestling matches.

But the Olympic bronze medalist and World champion women’s freestyle wrestler had never been in a bout quite like this.

On March 27, Chun was on a Honolulu beach dressed in a Sumo wrestling costume as she battled an opponent during filming for the popular CBS show, Hawaii Five-0.

That scene is scheduled to be shown on the next episode of Hawaii Five-0, set to air on Monday night at 10 p.m. Eastern Time/9 Central and Mountain.

“It was an awesome experience,” said Chun, who grew up in Hawaii. “I had so much fun. I loved it. Everybody was great to work with. It was pretty cool to be a part of it.”

Chun said Hawaii Five-0 producer Jeffrey Downer contacted her mother, Gail, shortly after Chun won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Downer invited Chun and her family to visit the set of the show. Chun said Downer is a former wrestler who has followed her career.

Chun met a number of cast members, including Hawaii Five-O co-star Scott Caan, during her initial visit to the show’s set.

Shortly after that, Chun received a phone call in February asking her if she would be interested in appearing in an episode of the show.

Chun then met the entire cast, including Grace Park and star Alex O’Loughlin, who plays Hawaii Five-0 commander Steve McGarrett. She also posed for photos with the cast members.

“They were really cool and a lot of fun to talk to,” Chun said. “Everyone was really nice. Alex and Scott said they wanted to train with me in Jiu-jitsu.”

Chun also had an interesting encounter with actress Michelle Borth, who plays O’Loughlin’s girlfriend on the show.

“Michelle said, ‘You’re kind of a big deal aren’t you?’” Chun said with a laugh.

Chun said she was in one scene on the show that took several hours to shoot. She had one line that was two words long.

“The scene is probably less than a minute,” she said. “We did several takes because they wanted to get different camera angles and everything. I was wrestling in a Sumo costume, which was heavy and difficult to move in. My scene doesn’t really have anything to do with the storyline or the case they are working on. It’s just something they wanted to put in as part of the show.”

Chun was paid for her appearance and she can earn royalties if the episode is shown in syndication or in other countries.

Chun said she’s anxious to watch the episode on Monday night.

“I’m just curious to see how it turned out,” she said. “I’m really excited to see it.”

So who won the wrestling match Chun was in?

“You will have to tune in and watch,” she said, “to see who won.”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
