What you didn’t see: Kansas City Finals

Over half of the competitors didn’t make it to the extended portion of the course.

The American Ninja Warrior Kansas City Finals episode was only the second time in the show’s history that no one was able to complete the course. The result was a long night of Ninjas giving their all to gain every inch of ground they could get.

Mitch Vedepo and Tyler Yamauchi would make it the farthest, while the Broken Pipes claimed many of the big names that were expected to hit the buzzer. Not all the Ninjas received screen time this week, so let’s take a look at what went on behind the scenes.

We saw on TV: 29 Ninjas attempt the brutal course

Night of recording: 35 Ninjas stepped up to the challenge

We saw on TV: 7 Ninjas fail the Broken Pipes

Night of recording: 8 Ninjas were stopped here

We saw on TV: 5 Ninjas tumbled from the Bar Hop

Night of recording: 7 Ninjas hit a wall at the Bar Hop

We saw on TV: 6 Ninjas struggled on the Floating Monkey Bars
