American Ninja Warrior host Akbar Gbajabiamila is ALL about the fans. Seriously, there’s very little Akbar won’t do when it comes to communicating with and staying in touch with the viewers.

So much so that Akbar wanted to take you all with him to the Los Angeles taping. But let’s be real, that’s not quite feasible. He’s working on another option, though.

Akbar is going to document the most behind-the scenes content ever from the Los Angeles taping of American Ninja Warrior this weekend. (No, there won’t be spoilers. Come on, people.) He’s going to share that content exclusively with the ANW Nation readers in his own way.

Only Akbar will have the key to his Ninja Warrior diary. To read it, you’ll need to text Akbar at 323-405-9945. He’ll reply and tell you more info. Yes, seriously. You’ll be texting Akbar. (I thought he was kidding, so I texted that number and he actually got back to me.)

Akbar will be texting you using an app called “Community.” So once you’ve texted him, you will be redirected to their site before continuing to text with Akbar. But it is an open line of communication with Akbar.

We suggest that you text him before this weekend, so you have all details you’ll need when he releases his content after the Los Angeles taping!
