American Ninja Warrior Catch Up

American Ninja Warrior Catch Up

When we last left our warriors:

The fastest time of the night went to Pennsylvania’s Matt Bradley, who flew through the course in just 60 seconds. While Matt and four others in the two-hour episode hit buzzers fast enough to get a chance at the Mega Warped Wall for $20,000, none of them were able to secure the bonus prize tonight. Top ninjas Sean Bryan, Noah Meunier, Jay Lewis and Levi Enright all had a chance after hitting their qualifying buzzers in less than 90 seconds.

With fierce competition on the women’s side this week, we saw new teen phenom Emily Keener have the best run of the night only inches away from taking on the mega wall. Emily has synesthesia, causing multiple unrelated senses to activate at the same time, describing this as “words, sounds and colors all merging”. She’s had to battle seeing double on the course at times, making her run all the more impressive.

Family affairs are common in the ninjaverse, and last night we saw the Behrends clan all competing and making it onto the leaderboard, including Scott Behrends, his son Ben Behrends, nephew Chris Behrends, and Chris’ best friend Levi Enright, who is marrying into the family and had the fastest buzzer in hour one!

In the qualifier rounds, the top 11 men and top 3 women immediately advance to the semi-finals. The last spot in each leaderboard is determined by The Run-Offs, where two Ninjas run head-to-head. Last night, longtime competitor Tyler Yamauchi grabbed one of the last spots in a photo finish at the buzzer, and Guang Cui, Jojo Grubesic and Violet Kepo’o also beat out their opponents for a ticket to the semi-finals.
