The Ninja Warrior show became such a big hit, that the US decided to put their own version of the show out and it has proven to be just as successful. American Ninja Warrior is hosted by Jenn Brown and she has revealed that she has had an attempt at some of the obstacles on the show.
Brown told WithLeather, "It was something that I suggested to the producers. I played softball at college and was an athlete growing up, and my family coached and taught gymnastics for many years, so I grew up a total jock. So for me to look at this course, I wanted to try it and get an appreciation for how difficult it was when I was talking to these athletes. I like understanding why it’s so difficult."
She added, "So I got to do two to three obstacles in each city, and I’m very proud that I was able to successfully complete three obstacles. Like I said, it gives you an appreciation for how truly difficult the obstacles are. But I’m proud of the three that I did, and I want to train a little big this year so that I can maybe successfully do a few more."
American Ninja Warrior has proved just as tough as the original Ninja Warrior course, if not more difficult, as only three contestants have ever completed the entire course. The latest season of American Ninja Warrior airs on NBC on Monday nights.
