Meet the man behind American Ninja Warrior's T-Rex invasion

Spoiler alert: T-Rex is actually a person.

Reko Rivera traveled to the Atlanta Qualifiers with some very special course equipment: The now iconic T-Rex costume.

After Reko ran the course in Atlanta as himself, he donned the inflatable T-Rex costume and tried the course again. The result was the hilarious and impressive run that took the internet by storm.

Reko is a fierce Ninja competitor but he's always ready to get the party started! Watch how he spends his 24 hours before his run. It includes lots of walking around in costume and maybe a little Ninja karaoke.

You've seen him run the course as a dinosaur. Now let's see how he does as a Ninja.
