2 David "Flip" Rodriguez

The most dedicated ninja in America

He is the best

He never gives up!

Flip has an amazing story, and I think way too many people underestimate him. Rodriguez all the way!

3 Joe Moravsky

He has gone further than drew and the course is harder than when Isaac competed so he is the best

Joe is consistent. He is focused and very athletic. I love Flip, but Joe is the man!

Has the skill, the power, the passion but most of all the mental strenght that is required for total victory

Joe has gone further than Flip Rodriguez most of times

4 Geoff Britten

His grip strength is legendary. His only flaw is balance.

Awesome ninja the best

Hit 6 consecutive buzzers in his second season competing. Finished stages 3 and 4 by sheer willpower.

Uh...Total Victory?

5 Sean Bryan

He is so awesome, great upper body strength and extremely fast, in addition to that he is an amazing role model to young people

Sean always dominates every obstacle he takes on. He is an inspiration on and off the course. He is an elite athlete and an even better human being.

-Top 3 two years ago,
-Top 2 last year.
-Hit every buzzer but stage 3 every year.
-2x undefeated record holding Salmon Ladder champ.
-This years Big Dipper champ.
My opinion, best all around the last 2-3 years, under appreciated.

High level of consistent performance unmatched by any other ninja warrior in the field!

19 Paul Kasemir

He is very experience and had competed since season 2 and is known as mr consitency however at season 7 it was the first time he did not make it through stage 1 I hope paul will be back for season 9

I think Kasemir could be in the top 3 because he's been on team USA a few times and has made it too the last obstacle on stage 3 and has the name Mr. Consistency I think that should get in the top 3

Known as Mr. Consistency, Paul Kasemir always finishes as one of the top guys. He seems to get a little better every year.

Paul Kasimeir is very consistent so should be higher then others
