Top 10 Most Skilled American Ninja Warrior Contestants

The most skilled contestants to ever compete in the American Ninja Warrior contest.

The Top Ten

1 Drew Dreschel

Drew is one of the fastest and most consistent ninjas out there he has a chance to go all the way and even if he doesn't he is still one of my favorites to watch I have also met him before he is a very cool guy

"He's a meta human! " -Akbar

He Is hands down the best American Ninja Warrior. There's nothing else to say...except, Drew is a beast.

Best of all time

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

Flip seems like a very nice guy he is also fast this is why I vote for him

The masked man is amazing

He never gives up!

3 Joe Moravsky

This guy is super consistent, he has a 100 percent completion for qualifiers and stage 1, and 75 percent for stage 2 and city finals.

Joe has made it to stage three like every time in his Ninja career and he is just so consistent in everything including team Ninja warrior

He hasn't failed on and city qualifiers or finals and never on stage 1 and 2 for 3 years!

Best contestant in the game, bar none.

Britten is the only competitor to have a perfect season meaning he did not fail a single obstacle from qualifying to the top of Mount Midoriyama. He also has Popeye Arms. - beastloader

14 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.

He has never made it to the last obs
