Also my first sideline interview with @ryan_strat and the legend @alisonhaislip! The friendships I made back then have lasted all this time and are a big reason I’m still doing this.

What is your pick for season 10’s MVO (Most Valuable Obstacle)?

Which was the best at taking out Ninjas last year? With the Super Bowl coming up this weekend, one big question is who will take home the title of Most Valuable Player (MVP). It’s an honor to receive, indicating the team benefitted heavily from that players participation. We thought about asking you which American Ninja Warrior would be your season 10 MVN (Most Valuable Ninja), but it seemed like we’d end up with pretty limited pool of responses. Drew Drechsel was the last Ninja standing and he and Sean Bryan were the only Ninjas to advance to Stage Two. So […]

This Lego Ninja Warrior course has a meaningful idea behind it

Daniel wants to make scary obstacles more accessible. Legos and American Ninja Warrior go hand in hand. We’ve seen this before. Fans create detailed and complex courses out of them. There are videos where Lego versions of your favorite competitors run through the obstacles. Even Lego itself has gotten involved with their own videos.

He said, “I started doing this three years ago to give kids and adults the […]

His first task was to earn some points on Stage One. He had that easily handled. Mathis flew through the course. A couple tiny stumbles didn’t phase him. He reached the Warped Wall in under a minute and showed no signs of slowing down. Judging by the shocked looks coming from Team Australia, and the absolutely glee coming from Team USA, we think it’s safe […]
