David Campbell, 'American Ninja Warrior'The Ninja Warrior course is one of the most daunting physical challenges in the world. Many seasons, we reach the end of the competition and no one has achieved total victory on Mt. Midoriyama. NBC broadcast the finale of 'American Ninja Warrior' (Mon., 9PM ET on NBC), which saw competitors from around the world take on the ultimate challenge.

In recent years, G4 has sponsored and broadcast 'American Ninja Warrior,' which found the best America had to offer and then sent them to Japan to compete in the finals. No American has ever achieved total victory. For the first time, NBC is bringing the finale to a wider audience.

G4 is taking us to Mount Midoriyama for American Ninja Warrior

Ninja WarriorG4 has been bringing Japan's Ninja Warrior to the states for a few years now. And for those of you who haven't seen it, it's one of the most addictive and difficult challenges in the world. The past several runs, they've even worked to send a group of Americans over to Japan to compete in the competition alongside a whole bevy of Japanese personalities and athletes.

Now they're taking it a step further, creating an all American Ninja Warrior. Unfortunately, the plan is to send ten American competitors over there to compete on Sasuke, the official Ninja Warrior obstacle course. I'd have much rather them build an American version of the course here. That way, like in the Japanese version, they can have 100 competitors from all walks of American life.

Just imagine. We'd have actors plugging crap giving it a try, and reality show contestants trying to extend their fifteen minutes. And most of them will fail and land in the water. The fear I have is that if we only have ten contestants in Sasuke, what happens if they all blow the first of four stages? Show's over?
