If there's a thread for this I apologize and ask it be blended in to the original one.
NBC is airing this show, which now is making a stop in America. The Ninja Warrior challenge features these extreme challenges in an obstacle course to reach a mountain. There have only been three people who have competed (out of at least 1,000, maybe more) who have completed the challenge. None of the winners are American.
They're currently showing the regional qualifiers, and it looks like "American Gladiators" on steroids a bit and crossed a little with "Kenchi's Mountain" (I think that's the show they used for "Extreme Elimination Challenge" parodies).
Of note, they had "Frosti" from Survivor compete and he qualified for the final competition.
It's worth watching, though it's obvious it's more of a special unless they're keeping the main challenge here. If they have an American complete it (or several) they will win a prize of $500,000.
