We now have a sense of which Ninjas will be on the premiere of season 13.

The American Ninja Warrior hype is coming in hot now! The show will debut season 13 in just three days. We have our first good look at the course. And we have photos released by NBC that give us a better idea of which athletes we’ll see on the premiere.

It looks like episode one will be somewhat of a southwest region. The competitors from the Texas area heavily represented. The photos promise some emotional returns as well as the debut of the teenage competitors.

We try to only select photos that don’t give much away, but here’s your mandatory warning that if you want zero spoilers, you should not continue scrolling.

Season 12’s winner, Daniel Gil, will start his bid for more top results.
