Felice Herrig trains for American Ninja Warrior TV Show after invite
TUF 20’s Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig was asked to participate in the hit television show, American Ninja Warrior.
American Ninja Warrior is a sports entertainment competition spin-off of the television series Sasuke, in which competitors try to complete a series of obstacle courses of increasing difficulty called “stages”. The series began on December 12, 2009, in Los Angeles, with the top 10 competitors moving on to compete at “Mount Midoriyama” in Japan. American Ninja Warrior succeeded G4’s American Ninja Challenge as the qualifying route for Americans to enter Sasuke.
Beginning with the fourth season in 2012, regional finalists and wild card competitors competed on a nearly identical Mount Midoriyama course in Las Vegas, Nevada, rather than traveling to Japan to compete on Sasuke. NBC (who owns G4) announced in September 2013 that it would air a special USA versus Japan series later that year wherein top American and Japanese competitors would go head-to-head on the Las Vegas Mount Midoriyama course.
The sixth season premiered on May 26, 2014 on Esquire Network. As of September 15, 2014, no one has won the grand prize.
After receiving the invite, Herrig set out to create a introductory video for the sake of trying out.
“So many of you know by now that American Ninja Warriors asked me to be on the show this summer… they asked me to make a demo reel. #NailedIt ,” Herrig said via social media.
