American Ninja Warrior Returns on AXN
American Ninja Warrior, one of the most watched sports competition series on television, returns on AXN for a sixth season.
As in previous seasons, hundreds of contestants from all over the United States will test each other’s strength, stamina, and endurance as they hurdle the challenging obstacles of the qualifying rounds in the regional competitions to be held in five locations: Venice Beach, California; Dallas, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri; Miami, Florida; and Denver, Colorado.
The top 100 competitors will vie in the national finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the U. S. version of Mount Midoriyama, the grueling obstacle course in Japan, has been constructed for the finals course of the competition.
Competitors should complete the first three stages consisting of a total of 23 obstacles before advancing to the finals stage where they attempt to climb the 8-story Mount Midoriyama, a 75-foot rope climb in 30 seconds or less. The winner receives US$500,000 and the coveted title “American Ninja Warrior.”
Unlike any other competition on television, American Ninja Warrior was nominated as Favorite Reality Show in the 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards and as Favorite Competition TV Show in the 2016 People’s Choice Awards. This year, as proof of its growing popularity among viewers, American Ninja Warrior has been nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program in the upcoming 68th Emmy Awards.
American Ninja Warrior Season 6 is again hosted by American actor and comedian Matt Iseman, former NFL football player and sports analyst Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, and ESPN sportscaster and model Jenn Brown as the sideline reporter.
American Ninja Warrior Season 6 airs Tuesdays-Thursdays at 7:55pm
