NBC’s impressive obstacle course competition series, “American Ninja Warrior” returns tonight for its ninth season and sixth full season. Host Matt Iseman returns joined by Akbar Gbajabiamila and co-host Kristine Leahy.
“The action-packed series follows competitors as they tackle a series of challenging obstacle courses in both city qualifying and city finals rounds across the country. Those that successfully complete the finals course in their designated region move on to the national finals round in Las Vegas, where they face a stunning four-stage course modeled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama course in Japan. The winner will take home a grand prize of $1 million,” from NBC.
With stops in Los Angeles, Calif.; San Antonio, Texas; Daytona Beach, Fla.; Kansas City, Mo.; Cleveland, Ohio; and Denver, Colo., to Las Vegas for the finals, this new exciting season brings new obstacles, new cities, and hundreds of competitors putting their skills to the test in hopes of joining Isaac Caldiero, who became the show’s first winner in season seven.
