Photo Coverage: Get a First Look at the AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR Las Vegas Finals
"American Ninja Warrior" presents night one of the National Finals shows from Las Vegas, where the season's top competitors face the world's toughest obstacle course. Ninjas will tackle the first of four separate stages on Monday, August 27 and Monday, September 4. The season finale featuring stages two, three and four airs September 10 (8 p.m. ET/PT). Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila host and Kristine Leahy co-hosts.
"American Ninja Warrior" returned for its 10th season this summer and its seventh full season on NBC.
The action-packed series follows competitors as they tackle a series of challenging obstacle courses in both city qualifying and city finals rounds across the country. Those that successfully complete the finals course in their designated region move on to the national finals round in Las Vegas, where they face a stunning four-stage course modeled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama course in Japan. The winner will take home a grand prize of $1 million.
New obstacles and several new cities await our competitors in their continuing quest for physical excellence. This season hundreds of competitors will test their skills to see if they can make history and join Isaac Caldiero, the show's first winner in season seven.
This season "ANW" made stops in Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis before heading to Las Vegas for the national finals.
Based on the global hit "Sasuke," from the Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, the original series is now in its 35th season in Japan.
