It’s almost that time again! American Ninja Warrior begins returns for another epic season starting on June 30 at 9pm on G4 (soon to be Esquire Network) and July 1 at 8pm on NBC (the original episodes will carry over between G4 and NBC each week).
Comedian Matt Iseman will be returning to the show as host and will be joined this year by former NFL player, Akbar Gbaja Biamila. Jenn Brown (ESPN) will serve as co-host.
It’s incredible because, while some may have come close, no American has conquered the American Ninja Warrior course. When you think about the fact that hundreds have climbed Mount Everest and a dozen have walked on the moon, it says a lot about how challenging this course is!
As in seasons past, we will see competitors square off through qualifying rounds across the country before heading to the finals in Las Vegas. In addition to winning $500,000 in cash, the victor will have the distinct ability to declare themselves the “American Ninja Warrior.”
