We thought about combining the info we have on Stage Two with Stages Three and Four, but this historic episode deserves a section all its own. Season 11 of American Ninja Warrior shocked all the viewers with the second course of the National Finals. Where Stage One followed the pattern we’re familiar with, Stage Two completely shook things up.
What happened was 21 Ninjas hit the buzzer and advanced to Stage Three. To put that in perspective, the most we had previously seen finish Stage Two was eight competitors, back in season seven. The Ninjas blew that out of the water this year.
The fans were a bit split on their reactions to the episode. Some loved that we’d see such a large number of competitors take on Stage Three. Some were concerned the course was too simple to do the competitors’ skills justice. No matter how you interpreted the night, it was one for the history books.
Look back at Stage Two with the info below!
