Well, today we thought we’d be celebrating the new American Ninja Warrior champion with you. However, the season 12 finale was pushed to Friday, November 6 to give space to the ongoing election coverage.

As we while away the hours, we’re keeping our thoughts squarely on the approaching season finale. To that end, let’s take a look at some preview photos from the episode! We think these are pretty spoiler-free, so you should be safe.

Zuri Hall has been fantastic all season. You can tell she genuinely enjoys her time with the Ninjas.

We are a little sad that we only have one episode left of Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila’s banter and puns this season.

Jake Murray is on a speed streak that has us wondering if he’s taking the top title this year.

Daniel Gil came in second in season 11. You know he doesn’t plan on letting that happen again.

Jeshuah Lewis got a second chance in the competition thanks to Joe Moravsky’s Power Tower run. He wants to keep extending that experience.

R.J. Roman likes to go fast. Keep an eye on him as he sets his sights on the Power Tower.

All of these Ninjas will hit the course with plans to shake up the current leaderboard. The top eight will then advance to the Power Tower playoffs! The American Ninja Warrior season 12 finale airs on Friday, November 6 at 8pm EST/PST.
