The other day we asked the fans to share what got them hooked on American Ninja Warrior. We figured it would be a fun little experiment to learn more about you and what drew you to the show.
That’s exactly what we got and more. The comments left were funny, insightful and sometimes emotional. Thank you all for sharing with us!
First of all, you’re an HONEST group.
Literally couldn’t find the remote so I just watched whatever was on— amy (@amylee21) July 7, 2018
Some of you have been around for a long time.
Sasuke, like many fans I imagine. I used to watch late at night.— Innussiq Kaniuk (@Innussiq) July 7, 2018
There was a marathon on G4 the day after Christmas and I watched while vegging out on the couch for hours. Was hooked right away!— cind-tronella candle (@condorcru) July 7, 2018
Those big moments on the show helped draw in some viewers.
Saw parts before but the episode that got me fully hooked was @BrianArnold_ANW on Stage 3 in ANW5.— ArmchairNinjaPodcast (@ninjapodcast) July 7, 2018
I saw the commercial of @joemoravsky breaking the rolling dice and had to tune in to see how he got of that predicament. I've been hooked ever since.— Jaini Thompson (@Jainiand2cats) July 6, 2018
You know, I think I first started watching @ninjawarrior on @NBC several years ago when I saw @KacyCatanzaro make history in season 6 during her city finals run in Dallas. I’ve never stopped watching it (and its spinoffs) since then, and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.— Gregory Harris (@GMario37) July 7, 2018
For a lot of you, there’s an emotional connection to the show.
It was my the 3 y/o’s reaction. It was definitely something we could share— Nick Pannone (@PannoneNick) July 6, 2018
Pulled in by the genuine respect each ninja has for each other and the atmosphere of sportsmanship that is displayed regardless of who wins or loses.#tiredofNFLshowboating— Jeremy (@Jeremy34412918) July 7, 2018
How ever you got here, we’re glad you’re a fan. Let’s watch some American Ninja Warrior together!
