The Semifinals had one obstacle that viewers hated

The grades don’t lie!

Elizabeth Morris/NBC

20 polls made up our final assessment of American Ninja Warrior season 13’s obstacles. The final grades are in!

The obstacles of the Semifinals earned an A- altogether.

You can review all the individual grades below. We did see a lot of the same results that were previously sent in for the other courses. It seems like the viewers liked the 2021 obstacles. Lots of A’s and B’s here.

But we finally have one blight on the report card! Is it odd to be excited about that? One obstacle earned itself a big old F: Drop Zone.

It’s no wonder fans would rather banish Drop Zone. Unless competitors moved very carefully and were ready for the drop, they could end up taking a smack to the face. It even bloodied a few Ninjas, like Sean Bryan.

Aside from that one instance, the grades tell a story of happy viewers! Check out all the results below.
