The cities and dates for season 10’s filming of American Ninja Warrior were announced this morning, and the Ninjaverse (see what I did there?) is all a-twitter.
The cities this year are LA, Dallas, Miami, Indianapolis, Philly, and Minneapolis. Dates range between 3/6 and 5/26.
If I were to be selected, the closest place to me is Dallas, and it’s filming the end of March. That’s just 2 months away! Just the thought of it makes me nauseous. But in a good way. If there is such a thing as good nausea. I read once that they look at submissions in order of when that person’s region would be filming, so those closest to LA would get looked at first, and Minneapolis submissions would be last, and so on. I’m not sure how true that is, but since Dallas is filming second, I’m guessing they’d be looking at my submission soon-ish. The producers for American Ninja Warrior are going to be looking at a video of me, that I made, soon-ish. That’s just crazy.
I intend to write a whole post on the surreal-ness of making an application video for ANW. It’s a crazy process, and it was crazy hard for me. But just for fun, I put together a blooper reel of some of the outtakes I got. Enjoy.
