This is some jaw-dropping talent.

Agt Extreme Season1 Leeky Da Bikestar

The first season of America's Got Talent: Extreme has officially come to an end. Over the course of several weeks, viewers watched a handful of daredevil Contestants all compete for a $500,000 grand prize. And though the winners were ultimately decided by the Judges—executive producer Simon Cowell, WWE Superstar Nikki Bella, and professional stunt performer Travis Pastrana—a select group of Super Fans could also vote for two Contestants from auditions to make it to the final round. 

Below, see the full list of Contestants who competed on AGT: Extreme Season 1. 

The Nerveless Nocks, @nervelessnocks

Hometown: Sarasota, FL

Talent: 80-feet duo swap pole

Ages: 30 and 55

Auditioned in: Episode 4

The father-daughter duo got a standing ovation from the Judges following their performance on 80-feet towering sway poles. The duo climbed the apparatus with no harness or rigging, executing aerial stunts in mid-air. “We’ve seen some crazy stuff and some scary stuff,” Cowell said. “That was off the charts. That was ridiculous.”

William Brandon

Hometown: Atlanta, GA

Talent: Fire dancing with rope dart

Age: 32

Auditioned in: Episode 4

Despite Pastrana’s no, Cowell and Bella felt Brandon’s elegant fire dancing was “beautiful” and moved him on to the Super Fan round.

“You made extreme beautiful and have meaning, and I felt something,” Bella said. “I really enjoyed it.”

JCB Dancing Diggers

Hometown: Savanna, GA

Talent: Heavy machinery agility

Ages: 22-51

Auditioned in: Episode 4

Cowell called the performance “more odd than extreme," but he still gave it a yes alongside Bella, moving the dancing heavy machinery into the next round.

Erika Lemay, @erika.lemay

Hometown: Quebec, CA

Talent: Aerial silks suspended 90 feet in the air

Age: 38

Auditioned in: Episode 4

After dislocating her shoulder in 2018, Lemay called her AGT Extreme audition her “second chance” to revive her decades-long career. The aerialist did that and more as she was suspended in the air by hundreds of balloons, performing acrobatic tricks on silks. She earned a standing ovation from the Judges and a Golden Buzzer from the entire panel and Crews.

Dr. Danger & Mary

Agt Extreme Season1 Danger And Mary

Hometown: Mendoza, TX

Talent: Love story with fire and explosions

Ages: 52 and 59

Auditioned in: Episode 3

Dr. Danger and Mary’s quirky fire-filled fairytale love story both puzzled and entertained the Judges, eventually earning a no from Pastrana. But both Cowell and Bella wanted to see more, sending the pair on to the next round. “I would be intrigued to see where this goes next,” Cowell said.

Chloe Chambers, @chloechambersracing

Agt Extreme Season1 Chloe Chambers

Hometown: Monroe, NY

Talent: Autocross kick plate and slalom

Age: 17 

Auditioned in: Episode 3

Race car driver Chambers earned Pastrana’s second no of the night following her autocross kick plate and slalom. However, Bella was inspired by the Guinness World Record holder’s determination to be the best in a male-dominated sport, and Cowell couldn’t ignore her charisma. “You gave me a new definition of what extreme is, and that’s breaking barriers,” Bella said. “I know everything that you say you want to be, you will be. And I’m here for it.”

Cyndel Flores, @thedaredevildiva

Agt Extreme Season1 Cyndel Flores

Hometown: Sarasota, FL

Talent: Sway pole

Age: 23

Auditioned in: Episode 3

Coming from a family of daredevils, Flores pushed the limits with her 60-foot high sway pole act—which she executed in the rain. The rare stunt was something the Judges had never seen before. “It’s not very often that I get shocked and scared, but that did all of it,” Pastrana said before giving Flores a Golden Buzzer, automatically advancing her to the finals.

NomNomSammieBoy, @nomnomsammieboy

Agt Extreme Season1 Nomnomsammieboy

Hometown: Brooklyn, NY

Talent: Extreme eating

Age: 32

Auditioned in: Episode 3

Bella and Pastrana whipped out their first Red Buzzers of the season for NomNomSammieBoy. Despite scarfing down burgers and hot dogs, slathering his face in a ton of melted cheese, and swimming in coleslaw, we won’t be seeing much more from this extreme eater. 

Shemika Campbell, @iamqueenshamika

Agt Extreme Season1 Shemika Campbell

Hometown: Trinidad and Tobago

Talent: Double vehicle and fire limbo

Age: 29

Auditioned in: Episode 3

Though Campbell auditioned for AGT in 2017, Cowell cut her during the second round of auditions. The Contestant returned to AGT: Extreme to show Cowell he made a mistake five years ago—and she did just that. “You’ve come back with real strength and a glow about you,” Cowell said, going on to give her a yes.

Bruce Cook, @brucecookfmx

Agt Extreme Season1 Bruce Cook

Hometown: Kelowna, BC, CA

Talent: Vertical backflip on a bike

Age: 34

Auditioned in: Episode 3

Eight years after becoming paralyzed during competition, the motocross rider got back on his dirt bike and successfully completed a vertical backflip for the Judges, earning a unanimous “yes” from the panel.

“This AGT: Extreme is kind of what I live for,” Cook said. “Just pushing the limits, and I think kind of showing the world that just because you’ve got a disability doesn’t mean you have to be on the sidelines. You can be center stage.”

America’s Little Sisters

Agt Extreme Season1 Americas Little Sisters

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Talent: Jello wrestling

Age: 29-45

Auditioned in: Episode 3

The Jello wrestling group earned Red Buzzers from all three Judges, but this was the most fun rejection. Bella went on stage to show the group what made her a WWE champion, getting down and dirty in the pool of Jello. And suffice it to say, Pastrana, Crews, and Cowell all ended up covered in the slimy treat, too.

The Nitro Circus Contraption Kings, @nitrocircus

Hometown: USA and Australia

Talent: 50-foot ramp drop into 40-foot jump

Ages: 27-33

Riding down a 50-foot ramp using a jet ski, recliner, and tricycle, the members of the Nitro Circus Contraption Kings brought the fun to a thrilling stunt, earning praise from each Judge.

Danny Zzzz, @dannyzzzz1

Agt Extreme Season1 Danny Zzzz

Hometown: St. Catharines, Ontario

Talent: One minute escape from 140 feet in the air

Age: 51

Auditioned in: Episode 2

Pastrana called the escape artist’s talent an “emotional rollercoaster,” and it's obvious why. The Judges watched on as Zzzz was locked in a box suspended 140 feet in the air. He had one minute to escape from the entrapment and its various locked barriers before the box was dropped to the ground. Luckily, he succeeded, earning a yes from each Judge and dedicating his stunt to his late son, Mason. 

“A parents’ love is so strong and it’s just unconditional, and I don’t know what it’s like to lose, I can’t even imagine that,” Bella said. “But whether you win or lose, you’ve already won because everyone will know Mason’s name.”

Diaby Diako, @diaby_diako

Agt Extreme Season1 Diako Diaby

Hometown: Paris, France

Talent: Flat 900

Age: 27

Auditioned in: Episode 2

The French inline skater traveled all the way to the U.S. to show off his expert rollerblading skills. He executed a “Flat 900” trick, something only three people in the world could do. In the end, despite Cowell’s hesitation, he earned a yes from all of the Judges. 

Jade Kindar-Martin, @fire_high_wire

Agt Extreme Season1 Jade Kindar Martin

Hometown: New Orleans, LA

Talent: 30-foot wire walk with fire

Age: 47

Auditioned in: Episode 2

Kindar-Martin had everyone on the edge of their seats with his 30-foot high-wire walk. With the cable on fire, the stuntman danced across the suspension and even rode a bike to show off his skill. “That was one of the most intense and inspiring acts I’ve seen here,“ Pastrana said. Cowell added, “Difficult to describe, unbelievable to watch.”

The Flying Royals, @theflyingroyals

Agt Extreme Season1 The Flying Royals

Hometown: Orlando, FL

Talent: Flying trapeze act on the world’s only quad rig

Alfredo Silva’s Cage Riders, @as.cage_riders

Agt Extreme Season1 Alfredo Silva Cage Riders

Hometown: Las Vegas, NV

Talent: Motorcycle stunts

Ages: 24-55

Auditioned in: Episode 2

Alfredo Silva’s Cage Riders wowed the crowd and Judges with a performance that was the epitome of extreme. In addition to their dangerous cage riding stunt, the group also performed bike tricks simultaneously. It was so impressive that Host Terry Crews interrupted the Judges to award the stuntmen a Golden Buzzer.

Joogsquad, @savage

Agt Extreme Season1 Joogsquad

Hometown: Clearwater, FL

Talent: Homegrown extreme stunts

Ages: 27-35

Auditioned in: Episode 1

Though Bella and Cowell weren't completely sold on the beginning of the Joogsquad's Act—which involved trampolines lit on fire, mouse traps, and plastic blocks—in the end all three Judges approved after lead Jack Tenney surfed through a pool of fire.

Verge Aero, @vergeaero

Verge Aero, the group responsible for the AGT: Extreme drones

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

Talent: Aerial drone shows

Ages: 30-56

Auditioned in: Episode 1

An unassuming group of engineers—who've dubbed themselves Verge Aero—scored Cowell's very first Extreme Golden Buzzer of the season with their mesmerizing 300 to 350-foot tall drone light show. "There's so many ways to define the word 'extreme' and this, for me, falls under spectacular," Cowell said. "That's what we look for certainly on this show."

Jenna Bandy, @jennabandy21

Agt Extreme Season1 Jenna Brandy

Hometown: Thousand Oaks, CA

Talent: Farthest football thrown into a target by a woman

Age: 28

Auditioned in: Episode 1

After several attempts, unfortunately, Bandy didn't quite complete her goal of breaking her own Guinness World Record for farthest football thrown into a target by a woman. Despite her enthusiastic efforts, it was a no for each of the Judges, with Cowell pushing his first Red Buzzer of the season.

Leeky Da Bikestar, @leeklydabikestar

Agt Extreme Season1 Leeky Da Bikestar

Hometown: Queens, NY

Talent: Street motocross

Age: 31

Auditioned in: Episode 1

The stunt dirt bike rider wowed the judges with his performance, as he weaved through a fleet of moving cars, all while executing gravity-defying stunts. Most noticeably he impressed Pastrana, the resident motorsport professional on the judging panel. "I have to say that's some of the most impressive stuff I've ever seen on stock motorcycle," Pastrana said. 

Aaron Wheelz, @aaronwheelz

Agt Extreme Season1 Aaron Wheelz

Hometown: Las Vegas

Wrapping up Episode 1 was Aaron Wheelz's inspirational performance in which the stuntman, whose lived with Spina Bifida since birth, completed a nail-biting ramp drop and 40-foot jump flip—twice. "Growing up with a disability, there's always this push that you should walk...you should be using crutches," he said, "almost as if using a wheelchair means you gave up. But the wheelchair for me was freedom."

The 29-year-old scored Bella's first-ever Golden Buzzer, advancing straight to the Finals.
