Tonight at 8/7c, American Ninja Warrior returns with night two of the National Finals. That's night two out of only three, so we’re rapidly approaching the end of the season.

Night one of the National Finals brought us 38 of the 68 competitors who qualified for the National Finals. Only 12 advanced to Stage Two. One night two, we’ll see the remaining 30 competitors. We’ll also have the chance to see the start of the second stage.

We’ve selected a few preview photos to tease who we’ll see on the course tonight. We tried to only use photos that showed the first half of the course to preserve some suspense. Which of these Ninjas will reach the buzzer?

Kyle Soderman’s virtual sideline looks nervous for him!
