While we were on set for the taping of American Ninja Warrior’s season 12, we checked in with as many competitors as we could. When time allowed, we veered away from focusing on the competition to ask them more hypothetical questions.
One of our favorites was asking the Ninjas what they would be doing if there was NO American Ninja Warrior (sport or show). We already shared with you what Jamie Rahn would be up to in this alternate universe. While we wait for Ninja Warrior to return on Wednesday, October 21 at 9pm, let’s see what three other Ninja stars would be doing with themselves!
“Oh he’s a professional skateboarder, for sure. I was before Ninja and I miss it still. I still skate. Me and Jake Murray still get together and skate.”
“I would probably be in the boxing ring. My goal was always to be a professional boxer and when I stepped away from that, that’s when I found American Ninja Warrior.”
“I’ve started playing piano a lot more in the last month or two. It’s been a blast. I never said I was any good. I really enjoy it. I like to think I’d be doing something that involves self growth and competition.”

The crew is assembling..... Jake took us caving in Denver, and I haven’t been pushed out my comfort zone this hard in quite a while. I’m very claustrophobic, and pushing though some tiny, tight spaces made me question whether I should turn back or not. I did push through, and while I’m certainly not over the fear, dealing with fear has been an obsession of mine as long as I can remember. Be safe out there if you’re pushing your boundaries!
