Basically every American Ninja Warrior ever was at the Texas State Fair for the Titan of Texas Challenge the weekend of October 22. The Ninja-style competition boasted over $15,000 in total prize money.
Ninjas took on six obstacles and aimed for the fastest time. Drew Drechsel took first place in the men’s division. Barclay Stockett was the female champion.
Check out some of the great runs below and see how much fun they all managed to have!
There were SO MANY Ninjas.
Back home from my trip to Dallas for the Titan of Texas Challenge...I had an amazing time competing and getting to see so many of my ninja friends again! Although there were a few things I could've done better to go faster during my run, I'm still happy with how I did...congrats to the overall winners Drew and Barclay and everyone who placed!...I mainly went to have fun, which I definitely did so great trip overall!

What an awesome course! I definitely almost fell on that crazy carbon fiber salmon ladder. It's been taking out a lot of competitors. Still another group to go till we have a winner! All in all, I'm having a blast hanging out in Dallas with all my ninjas! #kingdomninja #ninja #titanoftexaschallenge #texasstatefair #dallas #texas

Here's my run from the #titanoftexaschallenge! The buzzer had a bit of a malfunction, so after me mashing it over 9,000 times and a review, it was found that my official time was 24 seconds. The only faster times were @papalninja with 23.7 seconds and @reallifeninja with 21.3 seconds. Great times with awesome people! #chessninja #americanninjawarrior #ninjawarrior

Here's my run from last night's Titan Challenge! At the time, I was trying to beat @papalninja's 23-ish second time to win the $15k! Had a few stumbles early on, & lacked muscle up explosion on the wall. So 31 seconds it was. Felt good for my 1st speed run since injury. @reallifeninja ended up taking the top time (b/c he's amazing), but I placed at/near the top for 30-40 age group! Getting older has some benefits haha. I got to rock my team @living_water jersey at the comp, which was awesome!! Thanks for filming @grant.mccartney!

Titan of Texas Challenge 2016 - As I reflect on my run this night at the @statefairoftx, all I can say is that I was "not on my game." In a competition this big with $15,000 at stake, I would expect to perform at my highest level. For whatever reason, I didn't unlock that "next level" and it clearly showed. I wasn't focused, I wasn't fast, and I had no awareness. I'm extremely disappointed, but I know why this happened and it will be corrected. Huge congrats to my boy Drew @reallifeninja for an amazing performance and winning it all. Great job Barclay @a_sparkly_ninja for an awesome showing and winning the female division. There were many great performances from a lot of people. - - Big shoutout to my boy Miles for doing an awesome job running this event. Huge thanks to Aaron, @chadfishburne, @bigtonyrus, and everyone else who made this an awesome experience. Great seeing all of my ninja family these last few days. - Video cred: Elliot @ninja_rep #TeamKarsten #TitanofTexas #Nissan #ANW #TeamNinjaWarrior

Here’s my second place finish at the 2016 #TitanOfTexasChallenge at the #TexasStateFair. I was only topped only by the top ninja @reallifeninja ( #DrewDreschel ). Cheers to a wonderful experience in the #LoneStarState. My only regret is not having enough time to get #deepfried #jello to celebrate afterward. #maybenextyear #ninjawarrior #americanninjawarrior #becourageous #titan #titanoftexas #anw
But it wasn’t all hard work. The Ninjas spent time together.
Caught up with old friends.
@nissan Titan Proving Grounds was such a great ninja comp, definitely lots of fun with so many strong women, I wish we grabbed a whole ninja ladies group pic, but of course didn't miss out these two as we've been in 5 different states together this year!!! S/O to @bigtonyrus for outstanding announcing , and Miles Knupp and Aaron Thockmorton for all the work they put into coordinating and of course CONGRATS to @a_sparkly_ninja for the win!!! #AmericanNinjaWarrior #texas #statefairoftexas #squad #TeamSpornado @spornado
And of course, enjoyed the Texas State Fair!
Congratulations to everyone who competed!
