American Ninja Warrior’s annual All-Stars Special includes a Team Challenge where the hosts select their top Ninjas to compete on the stages of the National Finals for bragging rights. Both Akbar Gbajabiamila and Kristine Leahy’s teams have won before. That just leaves Matt Iseman searching for the All-Stars glory.
This year, Matt is coming out swinging. He’s selected Ninjas Jesse Labreck, Lance Pekus, and Jamie Rahn to run in his name. That is one stacked team.
Now we have an idea of how they’ll work together on the course. Watch the clip above where Jesse Labreck starts off the relay race on Stage One. She’s calm and calculated, navigating her way down the course until she tags in Lance Pekus.
We’ll find out if Jesse’s strong start helps give Team Matt the points tomorrow, Thursday May 17 when the new All-Stars Special premieres at 9pm on NBC!
