This article was published prior to Drew Drechsel’s arrest. NBC and American Ninja Warrior have since cut ties with him.
We’re keeping this short and sweet, for all of you who want to just Google your way to a spoiler. :) No frills.
The winner of American Ninja Warrior’s 11th season is DREW DRECHSEL.
He was crowned the American Ninja Warrior Champion after a 75-foot rope climb against Daniel Gil. The two were the only Ninjas out of 21 competitors to beat Stage Three. Drew completed the climb with 0:2.54 left on the clock, out of 30 seconds. Daniel timed out and was unable to complete the climb in the time allotted.
That means Drew Drechsel is the $1 million dollar winner in his ninth season on the show! He’s only the second winner in the show’s history.
The last time the show crowned a winner was in season seven, when Isaac Caldiero completed the final climb in a faster time than Geoff Britten.
