Jessie Graff met an adorable fan on the “Pickler and Ben” show

The Ninja Warrior talked about how her youth shaped her athletic future.

American Ninja Warrior Jessie Graff joined Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron on their talk show, “Pickler and Ben”, to discuss her Ninja history. Jessie went over what got her into Ninja Warrior, growing up shy, and tried to claim she’s “bad” at pushups (which we’re just not buying).

Jessie also shared that the environment surrounding her while growing never made her think men were “supposed” to be stronger than women. You can definitely imagine how this helped to shape Jessie’s mindset as she pursued a career in stunt work and Ninja-ing.

Later, Jessie got to meet 7-year-old super-fan Elliot, which was just all kinds of adorable. Together, they pulled off a cool balance pose.

This isn’t the first time Ninjas have stopped by the “Pickler and Ben” show. Hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila have visited, along with Joe Moravsky and future Ninja Warrior Rachel Brown. Kellie and Ben even tried to be Ninjas themselves.
