Usually, around this time of the year, we put together a list of our favorite episodes from the past season of American Ninja Warrior. This year, we want you to do it. Help us rank your favorites episodes of season 12!

Here’s how it will work. Below, we’ve listed out the episodes and provided a little reminder of what took place in each one. Under that, you’ll find a poll with all the episodes. Vote for your favorite episode. When we organize the results, the episode with the most votes will take first place, the second most votes will take second place, third most votes... etc. etc. If we run into a tie, well, we’ll figure that out when we get there!
