About American Ninja Warrior:
Esquire Network and NBC have teamed again to bring the heart-racing competition series, American Ninja Warrior, with hosts Matt Iseman, former NFL player 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 $1,000,000. Although many have come close, no competitor has yet to achieve total victory and claim the prize.

    Geoff and Issac should both get 1 million
    Geoff should because he is the VERY FIRST american to reach the top
    Issac should because he was the fastest

  2. Muse Ramos says:

    From now on your name is “Isaac Pro.”

  3. Mind Yours says:

    Ninja Warrior probably should of done this like the Olympics. Where anyone
    who reaches Stage 4. Yet completes the course gets a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
    place prize. That’s if you actually complete it. 1st gets the million of
    course. 2nd gets like 100k, and 3rd gets like 10 – 20k. This way no one
    feels like a loser. It just seems fair. If you all made it to the top and
    hit the buzzer. You at least deserve to get something for it. It just makes
    you feel as if they all should of competed on different seasons. Being 2
    have 2 winners, but only 1 gets a prize. Kind of feels like you got the
    short end of the stick.

    Yet big props to Isaac and I hope this money changes your life and living
    conditions. Being you really needed it more then anyone else.

  7. Aaron Long says:

    done it

    This is so silly.

  10. David Mathews says:

    Next year, make the course twice as hard and off 2 mill

  11. ChronoBaron says:

    I haven’t watched the american ninja warrior yet, I only saw the original
    japanese one. How do they compare?

  12. glfilms says:

    I personally think that anw is a tiny bit harder that sasuke but that’s
    just my opinion

  15. ASAP BIDOOF says:

    I seriously wish ninja warrior was back like it was in 2009-10. Courses
    were short but somewhat hard, all the Sasuke veterans (Blackie chan, brian
    orosco, etc.) I wish they still had training camp and went to the actual mt

  16. Bob Builder says:

    I kind of think jeff should get the money because he hit 6 buzzers and
    Isaac only hit 5

  17. Kanming Xu says:

    I know, right? It’s not even that bad. (I obviously can’t do it, but I know
    people who could easily do it) They even edit out the resting time, which
    is a long time between each obstacle

  18. Kanming Xu says:

    Geoff Britten so classy

    The whole thing looks staged.
