TV show description:
This obstacle course competition series conducts a nationwide search to find the ultimate athlete who will be crowned as a true American Ninja Warrior. It’s based on the global hit TV show from the Tokyo Broadcast System, Sasuke. The original series had 2,700 competitors attempt to complete the challenge and only three people successfully completed the course.
Schoolteachers, firemen, police officers and other everyday heroes turn themselves into acrobatic athletes on an arduous obstacle course. Regional qualifying competitions are held in Los Angeles, Dallas and Miami to determine the finalists who will ultimately have a shot at a $500,000 cash prize and the chance to win the coveted American Ninja Warrior title.
The national finals culminate in Las Vegas with the top 100 competitors trying their hand at the punishing four-stage obstacle course which is fashioned after the original Mount Midoriyama in Japan. Who will be the first American in history to complete the course?
The TV series is hosted by Olympic Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley and Comedian Matt Iseman along with sideline reporter, Angela Sun, who gives viewers an up-close look at the course and its competitors.
This TV series has not ended yet.
