What you didn’t see: Denver Qualifiers

There’s a good reason some people don’t like spiders!

Dustin Bradford/NBC

The Denver Qualifying course was no joke. Only eight Ninjas were able to complete the course, sending competitors like Brian Arnold, Meagan Martin and Sam Sann into the water.

Don’t worry, all those names made the top 30, but it was hard to watch nonetheless.

The Ring Swing and Bouncing Spider were venomous early obstacles that sliced down the field of competitors. With over 100 Ninjas trying the course that night, there just wasn’t enough time to show all that action on one episode.

So here’s some of what we didn’t get to see on TV!

We saw on TV: 44 tried to reach the buzzer

Night of recording: 105 Ninjas competed

We saw on TV: 7 course completions

Night of recording: 8 course completions. (Craig Richard was the only finisher not seen on TV.)

We saw on TV: Ring Swing took out 5 competitors

Night of recording: 30 Ninjas tapped out on the second obstacle

We saw on TV: The Bouncing Spider sent 12 Ninjas flying

Night of recording: 27 Ninjas were bit by the Spider

We saw on TV: Rail Runner eliminated 11 Ninjas

Night of recording: It claimed 24 victims
