Who would you give a Ninja Warrior golden ticket?

If you could send someone to the starting line, who would it be and why?

It’s casting season over at American Ninja Warrior! The production team behind the show is currently hard at work calling all the competitors who will be invited to take part in season 13.

This is a bittersweet time of year. For many, they’ll have a shot at one of their dreams. For even more, their phone will stay silent and they’ll need to wait until next year to try again. Thousands and thousands of applications are sent in every year. Only a few hundred can actually participate.

Season 12 saw a record low number of competitors due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The producers have indicated that they plan to increase that number from the 150 Ninjas of season 12. However, we’re not sure exactly what volume of participation we’re looking at just yet. But still, the bottom line is that not everyone can make the cut.

If you could, who would you give a Ninja Warrior “golden ticket”?

If you could wave a magic wand and send someone straight to the starting line, who would it be and why? Do you know someone who inspires you and you’d like the world to know about them? Do you know someone who had unparalleled skills? Maybe you'd give the ticket to a veteran who either deserves another shot or has unfinished business on the obstacles.

We’re all waiting to see who else announces that they received the call for season 13. But in the meantime, who would give a golden ticket? Tell us in the comments below.
