Top 10 Most Skilled American Ninja Warrior ContestantsThe most skilled contestants to ever compete in the American Ninja Warrior contest.
The Top Ten
All around great person. Besides his obvious athletic ability, he has great sportsmanship. He stands on the sidelines supporting fellow ninjas and you can't help but to notice his genuine concern that they do well. Most ninjas are like that but there is just something about Drew. That's why he's my favorite. Just seems to be one of those people that you would just love being around. Also, congrats on becoming a daddy.
The thing that amazes me about Drew is that he totally shattered his knee and leg and was able to come back and compete at the highest level again. That takes dedication and a lot of hard work to do that. I admire his ability and his dedication to the sport. Go Drew!
Drew should be called The "Real Life AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR" not The "Real Life Ninja"
I would love him to train me because I want to show people were I'm from that I can do anything with autism84 Comments
Absolutely love the flipster!
The most dedicated ninja in America
Flip is my favorite ninja and even though he fell on stage one in vegas last year, I know he’s going to make a comeback in season 1119 Comments
Joe has more almost 3 times as many buzzers as failures. He has 1 legit fail in all of his qualifying/finals courses (nobody finished that night), and he has 1 "semi" fail because he chose the mega wall and hit a ridiculous blind obstacle that should have never been done.
He is the best lol. Flip isn't nearly as good as him and just annoys me with his personality. Drew proclaims himself as a "real life ninja" yet can't make it as far as Joe, a simple weather man
I like Flip, but Joe is a stronger competitor than Flip.
Flip is definitely among the best don't get me wrong, but Joe has made it further in just about every competition34 Comments
The best ninja, I think
He is so awesome, great upper body strength and extremely fast, in addition to that he is an amazing role model to young people
Even with a broken ankle he hit the buzzer and won the power tower! Is there something he cannot do?
-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.
He is the only ninja to have a perfect season. And has a 7 buzzer streak
Geoff is always smiling
And is legendary
Best attitude and best ninja skills
Won lightning bolts pegboard
at all star skills
His grip strength is legendary. His only flaw is balance.15 Comments
Competed on all 11 seasons. You got to love him
Ryan Stratis is one of the best American ninja warriors (from JP age 6).
Only person to complete city finals course anw 3
First American to make it past the ultimate cliffhanger
Made it farther than any other American on the course.
Brian Arnold has made it the farthest
Brent has beaten the stage no one else could until Geoff and Isaac2 Comments
My personal favorite.
Been to Mt. Midoriyami more than any other American.
The first and foremost thing that I love about Daniel Gil is his love of God. He is also by far the most calm of all of the ninja warriors, which comes from living his faith. I am a big fan of several of the warriors, but I admire Daniel Gil the most.
If Daniel had been given more time to rest before attempting Stage 4, the competition with Drew, who was able to rest a lot longer, would have been more fair. The way it played out tonight, we really do not know who is the best at this time. It was not a level laying field!
I love watching all of the competitors, but Daniel Gil is the real reason I watch at all. What a great example he provides for young people and old alike. He seems to live the message and God has blessed him with a talent where he can reach millions. And yes, he should be in the top 5, but is # 1 in my book!
Smiles the whole time he's on the course, and lives his faith. I always think he's going too fast, but he pulls it off!38 Comments
Made it to stage 3
One of the best speed demons out there
You go Jessie Graff! I loved her I hope she comes back. She is strong and inspirational. She should be higher on the list!

Drew dreschel is my personl favorite. Meanwhile isaac caldiero is my 2nd favorite and certainly #1 skilled despite his fall isn the kansas city finals
The American Ninja Warrior fell in the City Finals, but will crush the course in season 11, he should be #1.21 Comments
My six year old grandson is very happy that JJ Woods made the list.

Asthma-Completes nearly every course he tries.
I admire his determination and how much he has risen from adversity.
He always perseveres through everything, even when his asthma catches up to him!
Admire the adversities he had to overcome to get where he is today. Extremely talented and a gentleman in competition.6 Comments
Went further than any other American ninja warrior
Only Olympic team USA contestant that can complete stage 3
Brian Arnold went farther than any one

Grant embodies what it means to be a ninja. He is tough but fun...he means business but he has fun doing it. Go Island Ninja
He is my favorite ninja

He hasn't competed since season 3
Was my all time favorite before he had to retire
He is my all time Favourite
This guy is really the best of then all
Too bad he gave up anw after that wrist injury
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.3 Comments
Jamie is amazing with grip
He is awesome
He is a stud
Love this guy and his positive attitude
My friend has Ben inspired by him because he's a farmer
Is a cowboy and completed stage 2 in the anw all star special.
Got up to the wall and did extra obstacles 😎 Experience with stunts and working out due to his role as the Green Arrow.
The number one rock climber and he was the best rookie ever on anw
This completed stage 3 on U.S.A. Vs. world in his rookie year!
Yesss she’s amazing, she’s definitely my favorite
Guy is always on of the best. Consistently top best of the best. - ftm821

I vote for Jake Murray because he’s my favorite
Man,damn strong and funny too,he does everything with style and he has made it to stage 2 so he should be in top 20 at least
He has amazing potential! A true legend.

She is the best girl ninja
The BEST! The OG of Ninja Warrior!

Won obstacle design contest 2018 with DeJaVu, premiered at Vegas finals in stage3 with the wingnut
Breakout rookie season, invented the most talked about obsticle ever, the Wingnut
He is the worst
He made it up the mega wall in LA
He was a rookie 2015 and did get to Finals in 2016, but he can do much more. He will be a lot better in 2017.
Crazy Craver should be higher. An injury kept him out of ANW in 2017.
Craver is another rookie with much potential, and Can make it to Stage II this time
He almost died and then completed the Oklahoma City finals which is to me impossible
He has been upon 7 seasons of American Ninja Warrior.
He is a salmon ladder beast
Brother of chris wilchesky
World class rock climber
Upper nineteenth plus mind is why he was in top 3 after Geoff and Issac
Made it to last obstacle on stage 3
Has been team captain on every ninja vs ninja and is part of the wolf pack6 Comments
