About American Ninja Warrior
Regional competitions were held in the following four locations to determine the 100 competitors to participate in the other stages: Venice Beach CA, Baltimore MD, Miami FL and Denver CO. The winner of the American Ninja Warrior 5 competition receives US$500,000 and the coveted 'American Ninja Warrior' title. Like the previous season, the season finale will be held in Las Vegas NV, making the U.S. version of Mount Midoriyama its permanent home. The season is again hosted by Matt Iseman, with two newcomers, Akbar Gbaja Biamila and Jenn Brown as the sideline reporter.
