Over the past weekend, American Ninja Warrior set up camp in Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida. The city lived up to its reputation, bringing on the heat and humidity. Some surprise bands of rain visited during the qualifiers, but overall it was another great location for season 10!
Of course, we WANT to tell you about all the game-changing things we saw happen over those two nights, but we can’t. We like our job too much. But here’s a little peak, using what the Ninjas and fans shared on socials!
Jessie Graff and her mom, Ginny, were on location. Competing? Watching? Who knows! (We do.)
Akbar ran into fans who had come all the way from New Zealand to present him with a custom sign!
The University of Miami mascot, Sebastian, couldn’t resist the call of the course.
Things got... interesting at the start line.
DOPE WEEKEND! I don’t know where to start on this one! I’m finally coming down from the clouds a bit with this amazing opportunity. It was SO awesome to compete and meet so many incredible people (and new friends)! And I got to debut my new character NINJATRON! The crowd went bananas ! Here are a couple preview pics of my suit. I can’t say how I did but tune into this seasons ANW this summer. I’ll post more on specific air dates. BIG thank you to MY #1 @jkjohnson729 ❤️ and to my brother @instajohnwill and sister @ajohnson281 and Mom+Dad and @fergusonfitness & @fergusonfitmom and the rest of my friends and family for staying out all night and supporting me! (+ everything you did behind the scenes!) Y’all are the real MVPs! And a shout out to all you new ninja friends I met; you are truly inspiring! I have an all new respect for y’all. And I got to see @jessiegraffpwr @islandninja @akbar_gbaja @mattiseman @kristineleahy just to name a few. #AmericanNinjaWarrior #ANW #NinjaTron #Debut #Ninja #Dream #NinjaWarrior #NBC #ANWNation #Show #Blessed #Roanoke #VirginiaTech #Hokies #GodBless
Don’t think it was all shenanigans. The competitors were here to hunt for glory.
Year 10 in the books! No more POM plastered all over the set this year! Instead we had this awesome looking #jeep on set! I've been thinking about getting one for the move out to #colorado. Any recommendations? Also big thanks to @acumobility. Their #ultimatebackroller helped keep my shoulders loose and competition ready! New season starts up in May so you'll have to wait and see how it all goes down! : @ninja_karajoo #americanninjawarrior #anw #miami #ocr #obstacles #fit #ninja #acumobility #warmup #rehab
The sidelines were packed with Ninjas, who would never miss a chance to support their friends.
Then, there was a dinosaur attack. Take from that what you will.
That’s a wrap on American Ninja Warrior, Miami edition! Next, we’re off to Indianapolis in just over a week!
