American Ninja Warrior’s fourth and final round of Qualifiers will now air on October 5. It was delayed a week due to the NHL Stanley Cup Finals. That means we have a whole week to wait until we can break down and analyze the new action.

So, we’ve got some time to talk! We’ll be spending the next few days gathering your feedback on how the season has progressed to this point. It’s definitely been an interesting season as we’re working with a smaller amount of episodes and a new format. Before we dive into the deeper subjects, let’s start with something light.

Which new obstacle of the season is your favorite and why?

In the three Qualifying episodes we’ve seen so far, four new obstacles have made their debuts. Here they are!

Weight For It

Ring Chaser

Rib Run

Beehive

Weight For It and Ring Chaser both put an emphasis on timing. Rib Run is a tricky new balance obstacle where stepping on the small platforms pushes them away from you. Beehive was definitely inspired by the motion of Wingnuts, but added a literal twist in the middle.

So which is your favorite of the new obstacles and why? You can vote in the poll below or jump down to the comments to share your thoughts!
