With the American Ninja Warrior season 13 Qualifiers fading into the rearview, it’s time to get excited about the Semifinals!
This season, all the Semifinals took place in Los Angeles on the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot. The course moves to 10 obstacles in length and the Power Tower is back! At the end of each Semifinals episode, the two fastest Ninjas will race for the Safety Pass.
That’s not all! Split Decision moves to position nine on the Semifinals course. This time around, the Ninjas will pick between a balance obstacle or an upper-body obstacle.
With all that upcoming, we can’t wait to see things in action! We have a sneak peek of the first Semifinals course thanks to this look at veteran Ninja Tiana Webberley in action!
The preview spells out the first half of the course. Tiana calmly takes on the Lunatic Ledges, followed by Tilt-A-Whirl. She dives off the Spinning Bridge and brings us to the first new Semifinals obstacle, Wall To Wall. This involves leaping between two panels, using tiny ledges to hang on and rotate the panels, and finally, jumping to a tiny dropping shelf.
It looks hard, but Tiana handles it with the confidence of the pro she is. We see her topple the Warped Wall and look towards the back half. Previously, she’s made it to the ninth obstacle on the Semifinals course. Is Tiana going all the way this year?
The first night of the American Ninja Warrior season 13 Semifinals airs on Monday, July 19 at 8 pm/7 c on NBC.
