As we wait for the Baltimore City Finals to air tonight, we’re thinking back to the Baltimore City Qualifiers where we saw zero Mega Wall finishers, and just 9 course completions. A whole lot of Ninjas are coming into the Finals tonight with redemption on their brain. Who will leave satisfied? How many will hit a buzzer? And which deserving Ninja will leave with the peace of mind of the Safety Pass?
Chris Wilczewski made it up the Mega Wall in Season 10, but the Mega Wall in the Baltimore Qualifiers prevented him from hitting the buzzer. Is a buzzer in his future tonight?
Allyssa Beird finished the City Qualifiers in the 25th spot overall, and the top spot for women. We think that’s pretty great. Knowing Allyssa though, we bet she won’t be satisfied without a buzzer. Can she get past the obstacle that took her down in Qualifiers? How far can she go this season?
We bet you have no idea whether or not Joe Moravsky will make it through the Shrinking Steps tonight. Just kidding... We know you all couldn’t resist watching his City Finals full course run that was released a few days ago. If you somehow missed it, accept this little gift from us -- click here.
The Hazard Cones... We don’t wish that hazard on anybody! There were 12 victims of the Hazard Cones in the Qualifiers. There are sure to be a few more victims tonight, don’t you think?
Even though Angela Gargano was one of those victims of the Hazard Cones during Qualifying, she had the whole crowd behind her in a triumphant return to the course after a severe injury during Season 10. Angela’s showing during the Qualifiers put her in third place for the women, and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the course tonight.
We don’t know how these Ninjas find the strength to keep going after completing obstacles like Crank It Up, but they sure do. They always find ways to amaze us, and we know tonight will be no exception.
Tune in to the Baltimore City Finals of American Ninja Warrior tonight (August 12) at 8/7c on NBC.
