The Armchair Ninja Podcast, ANW Fantasy, and Ninja Warrior RHAP Up put together their picks.

We’ve done a lot of reflection on the results of American Ninja Warrior’s tenth season and we’re not the only ones. Ninja Warrior’s avid fan community has been hard at work creating some awesome additional content for anyone who’s ready to keep the conversation going.

The Armchair Ninja Podcast, one of the most thorough and dedicated fan podcasts out there, just turned in their second annual “Stage Five Ninja Awards” results. Hosts Rich and Bijan were joined by Taran and Lita, the masterminds behind the American Ninja Warrior RHAP Up podcast, another fabulous source of Ninja Warrior discussion. Rounding out their voting academy was Travis of ANW Fantasy.Com, which allows fans to put their Ninja predictions into action.

Together, they combed through their opinions on the season to pick winners in nine different categories. There’s also four “People’s Choice” categories where other fans got to weigh in on the winners.
