The American Ninja Warrior Daytona City Finals field is stacked with big name Ninjas like Jessie Graff, Drew Drechsel and JJ Woods. Teaser photos posted on NBC.Com give us several hints as to who advances deep into the back half of the course.
Now, we know the fan base is passionately divided on the subject of hints and spoilers. So, if you want a pure, unsullied experience on Monday night, go away right now.
We mean it. This is your last warning.
But if you like dissecting these tidbits of information, let’s get into what these teaser photos might mean!
Just to make sure you REALLY want to see the spoilers, we’re going to start this off easy. Here’s Ryan Stratis on Rolling Thunder. He completed the Qualifying course, so it’s no shocker to see him back on this obstacle.
In the same way, here’s Jessie Graff on the Wingnuts. It’s the third obstacle so we’d be depressed not to see her here!
Okay, are all the spoiler-free people gone? Because we’re kicking it up a notch.
Kevin Carbone, the designer of the Wingnuts, survives his own obstacle once again and gets to the back half of the course.
Michael Johnson makes it far enough to attempt the Giant Cubes. Looking at this picture, we’re really wondering how the Ninjas are going to transfer from that bar to the first cube.
Same with this shot of Royall Eason. Like the 90 degree turn on the I-Beam Gap in Cleveland, it’s going to take a lot of strength and coordination to get into the right position.
But you know who’s going to figure it out? JJ Woods. He at least gets around the first cube and attempts to transfer to the second.
We already know that the Giant Cubes will be obstacle number eight. That means the Circuit Board will be obstacle nine, as demonstrated here by Travis Rosen.
We expected this, but here’s confirmation that Drew Drechsel is going to survive at least the majority of the course.
We don’t see anyone on the Elevator Climb, because that would just be TOO much, but these pictures give us a strong idea of who’s got a shot at taking on the last obstacle.
Who do you think finishes the course, if anyone? Tell us in the comments!
