We can’t wait to see them on the show again!
Zuri, Akbar, and Matt – we’ve missed them! As if 2020 hasn’t been difficult enough, we haven’t even been able to count on our three favorite hosts to distract us from our troubles for two hours every week. It’s been way too long since we’ve smiled at a warm moment between Zuri and an inspirational Ninja. It’s been too long since we’ve chuckled at an awesome Akbarism. And it’s been too long since we’ve heard Matt say AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR in a way that only Matt can.
Luckily, all three fabulous hosts are active on social media, and you can rest assured that we are faithful followers. While it’s not quite the same (okay…not even close!), it’s still refreshing to enjoy their infectious personalities, get a peek at what’s important to them, and see a tiny bit of their everyday lives.
They’re all spreading the love on social media in their own unique way. Zuri is literally sending words of love to all of her followers and encouraging them to do the same.

Just in case ya haven’t heard it yet, today: YOU are unique, special & wonderfully made! ❤️ And I’m sending you love, if you’re reading this. I wanna try something… Below, tag a friend, acquaintance or even someone you haven’t met I.R.L. + leave a loving comment for them. ✨ I’ll go first! @lifeofasassystew — you light up every room you walk in, are blossoming into an amazing new mommy & you have an unfairly fabulous head of curls. (Ok, that was 3 things… but there’s a lot to love about you.) #SpreadLove #ChooseLove
And it’s just like Zuri to engage with her followers about gratitude.

Lights. Camera. And I’ve always been ‘bout that Action. 2020 has mixed (hell, messed) up a lot of our plans, but gratitude for what is + hope in what may be are such precious gifts we can give ourselves! ❤️ Tell me — what’s one thing you’re grateful for… or still hoping for, this year?? I’m grateful for my health… new work opportunities… and this surprise White Castle delivery, someone just sent me! #ChickenRingsAllDay #StayTuned
Akbar is showing his big heart by calling attention to ways his followers can help others get through these difficult times.
And he’s also taking the time for public service announcements and education when tough issues arise.
And then there’s Matt… Always entertaining and full of fun! Have you guys seen his “Mornings with Matt” cooking show? These weekly posts are full of dancing, singing, classic Matt antics…and food too. Matt definitely doesn’t claim to be a seasoned pro. In fact, up until a few months ago, Matt hadn’t really cooked at all!
Thanks, Zuri, Akbar, and Matt, for being you, and for being a bright spot in our days.
