Over the course of six seasons, Michelle Warnky has grown into a strong female competitor in American Ninja Warrior. Season 11 was her best one yet, making it through Archer Alley and falling on Spin Your Wheels. Over the years, we’ve seen her father, Chris Warnky, compete and most recently, Michelle and boyfriend Joel Buurma got engaged!

But let’s take it back to her first submission video for season 5, where we learn about her family, her time abroad in Kazakhstan, and how she got into Ninja in the first place.
