Since his debut in American Ninja Warrior season seven, Grant McCartney has competed in five seasons in a row, making it to Stage Two of the Las Vegas National Finals three times. The flight attendant from Honolulu quickly made a name for himself as the Island Ninja and is known for his positive attitude. In season 10, Grant didn’t qualify for National Finals and came back for season 11 with a renewed focus. In season 11, Grant made it to Stage Two and was eliminated by the Extension Ladder, the second obstacle.

Since then, the Island Ninja has been spending his time with the Junior Ninjas, keeping up his Ninja skills, and having a little fun, too.

Have you heard of the Pirate Pull-Up Challenge?

We love seeing the adult Ninjas supporting the kids!

I think we can all relate to getting a little stir crazy during quarantine!

He also joined several other Ninjas for the Ninja Talks series.

Grant kept up his Ninja Skills with this #MinuteCourseMonday challenge.

And staying true to his namesake, the Island Ninja brushed up on his surfing skills.

Grant has confirmed that he will be competing in season 12, which will premiere on Monday, September 7.
