Okay, we admit it, the Philadelphia taping of American Ninja Warrior wrapped a few days ago and we’re just getting to this article. Forgive us. Things are crazy this week with all the upcoming Ninja Warrior action!
So let’s talk Philly. (What we can talk about at least.) There were some good and... interesting aspects. We’ll get the “interesting” stuff out of the way.
RAIN. Lots of it. Joe Moravsky talked about it in his Instagram post. During the taping of the Qualifiers, a big old rain cloud moved in and took a seat right on top of the course. This is, of course, not ideal. Obstacles are hard enough without being soaking wet.
Because the rain didn’t plan on going anywhere, arrangements had to be made. Ironically, the Weatherman Ninja was rained out and is now heading to Minneapolis.
So that was the challenging part. But there’s nothing to be done about the weather, so we’re not going to dwell on it. Let’s talk about all the good and cool things that happened!
Amazing legends like Michelle Warnky and Mike Bernardo took their turns on the course.
What a weekend in #Philly ! Every single year on @ninjawarrior I am so grateful for the opportunity to play on this big obstacle course with friends. What a roller coaster ride it is, and year 6 is no different. So thankful for the ninja friends that have become family along the way, and for each time I get to step onto the platform. If you're curious how things went, our episode airs toward the end of June, and the new season starts May 30th I believe! . . I am so incredibly grateful for my amazing family and friends who have been an incredible support throughout my life, with @mlabohio , and this whole ninja journey. So many drove 7-9 hrs to stand in line for hours and wait in the pouring rain to cheer! Sadly I never got a pic with everyone, but thanks so much for coming out and I hope you are all getting some rest! So many others couldn't make it out, but wanted to, and wrote such encouraging messages- thank you! It was so fun to come home to my #mlabohio family tonight to lots of hugs and to splurge together with some @graeters ice cream as well! I love you all and am so thankful for each of you!! . . @corninggorilla @atomikclimbingholds
Allyssa Beird returned for her third season of American Ninja Warrior.
That's a wrap in Philly! Luckily the rain held off for the second night of filming, even though the night started with thunderstorms. Tune in Monday, June 25th for the qualifier episode to see how we all fared on this east coast course! #anw10 #americanninjawarrior #ninjawarrior #anw #strong #ninjafam #philadelphia #obstacles #obstaclecourse #crazyhair
And her mom ran the course as well! How cool is that?
Happy Mother's Day to this warrior! We got to spend Mother's Day weekend together competing on American Ninja Warrior. While she's always been one of my biggest supporters, it was nice to return the favor and support her as she took on the course, too! Thanks for everything, mom! I love you!! @dariabeird #mothersday #mom #motherdaughter #ninja #americanninjawarrior #ninjawarrior #anw #anw10 #strong #anwx #obstacles #ninjafam
Some of the walk-ons did get a chance to hit the obstacles, which we always love seeing.
#ANW10 #philadelphia is a wrap! Another amazing experience in the books! After 25 days away from home, time to go back to regular life. Thank you everyone who came to not support just me but the whole community! Keep an eye out on June 25th during @ninjawarrior 10th season to see how I did! Until then you'll just have to watch me tonight on @usa_network #ninjavsninja #playoffs what can I say, I'm a busy ninja #kingofthewalkons #partninja #undraftedninja #veganathlete #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #ninjawarrior #ninjalife
Also, we want to give MAJOR props to the crew of American Ninja Warrior. They hustled in all kinds of weather to make sure that whenever there was a dry moment, the course and the cameras were ready to let the Ninjas shine!
Next up, American Ninja Warrior heads to Minneapolis!
