American Ninja Warrior’s All Star special is coming up quickly on Sunday, May 26 at 7pm on NBC. The annual special features two segments. The skills competition pits the Ninjas against the wildest, biggest versions of the obstacles you can think of. The team competition has the hosts each pick three Ninjas to run relay-style on the stages of the National Finals.

Now, the All Star teams have been revealed and we are pumped to see these super groups in action!

Team Akbar

  • Grant McCartney, Meagan Martin, and Jake Murray

No matter what happens, this team is going to have a great time pulling it off! They’ll be combining their skills with their fun-loving personalities. Dancing and corndogs will ensue. It seems like a perfectly natural fit for the pun-loving Akbar Gbajabiamila.

Team Kristine

  • Tyler Gillett, Barclay Stockett, Mathis “The Kid” Owhadi

It was a little bittersweet to see this team! Sideline reporter Kristine Leahy has moved on to other opportunities for season 11, so this might be her last Ninja Warrior-hurrah. Her teams have dominated the team competition for the past two years, so she might be going out on a high note with a third win.

Team Matt

  • Lance Pekus, Jesse Labreck, Jamie Rahn

Matt Iseman is adhering to the old rule, “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” He’s brought back his team from last year. They just BARELY lost out on last season’s win, so you can be sure they’re coming back with a little bit of redemption on their minds.

Really, we don’t know which team to put our money on in this one. The teams are stacked with talent and evenly matched. Guess we’ll have to wait till Sunday, May 26 to see how they all work together!
