Can you believe we only have one episode left of the season 13 American Ninja Warrior Semifinals? Tonight’s episode (Monday, August 23) will bring us our final group of competitors looking to get to the National Finals. That makes this our last batch of preview photos for Los Angeles, so let’s get going!

Light spoilers ahead, so be wary!

Up there at the top of the article, we have Jesse Labreck. Can she get a THIRD buzzer on a 10-obstacle course.

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate this team who have busted their butts to entertain us all season.

It’s the last chance for the teens to make it to Vegas, so competitors like Ava Colasanti...

And Devan Alexander will be hard at work.

The veterans will have us on edge. These courses have been unpredictable. Will Jamie Rahn hit a buzzer?

Brian Beckstrand made history in the Qualifiers by hitting a buzzer alongside his 15-year-old son Kai. We already had a preview of Kai’s run which dropped a big hint about Brian’s time on the course.

Austin Gray came in second overall in season 12. We know he’s looking for the big win this time.

Nate Hansen hit the Qualifying buzzer and has inspired so many with his newfound fame. We can’t wait to see what he does in the Semifinals.

Kyle Soderman loves speed. He might have a Power Tower in his future.

We saw Kyle Schulze struggle with his shoulder in the Qualifiers and we’re wishing him a safe and successful run.

Lindsay Eskildsen made some incredible saves in Tacoma just a few short months after giving birth. She’s all mom-focus on this picture.

Cam Baumgartner brings explosive strength to his runs.

Dan Polizzi has battled his way to the National Finals before. Will he do it again?

Who’s going to the National Finals and who’s going home? We’ll find out tonight at 8 pm EST/PST on American Ninja Warrior!
