Ninja Warrior is a sensational competition that has exploded into popularity around the world, and now its American iteration will kick off the finals for its fifth season in beautiful Las Vegas. The competition is fierce – so fierce in fact that no American has ever cleared the obstacles – but the contestants are determined. Did you get a chance to see American Ninja Warrior live?
In its four-season history, no one has ever completed all four stages of the "American Ninja Warrior” obstacle course, and producers have no plans to make it any easier for its fifth season, which filmed its finale in Las Vegas last weekend and premieres Monday on NBC.
In fact, they plan to make it harder. Instead of featuring the same course in each city, the show challenges its fifth-season competitors with an entirely new set of obstacles in each regional competition.
"The fact that the course is different in every city makes it unique because you can’t just focus on learning one thing and then master it,” says Kent Weed, executive producer.
