The course is beyond challenging, the endurance is beyond comprehension and the competition is beyond compare. Many have tried. Only three in the world have succeeded. But yet none have become the first American Ninja Warrior.
From soccer moms to firemen, students to senior citizens, anyone and everyone will have a chance to showcase their strength. But it's going to take a lot more than muscle to conquer the world's most daunting athletic challenge. Only those with enough courage, determination and heart will claim this ultimate honor that so few have achieved. Qualifying competitions across the country will first determine the finalists. These everyday heroes will then have a shot at the $500,000 cash prize and the chance to be crowned the first-ever American Ninja Warrior.
Japan's famed Mount Midoriyama will come to the United States as the National Finals culminate in Las Vegas. From there, all that stands between the final 100 competitors and greatness are dozens of punishing obstacles, set in a brutal four-stage course that will push their endurance to the limit.
Who will have what it takes? Find out this summer as the heart-racing contest returns! One-hour alternative series.
