I'm about to rock your very soul to its core, Ninja Warrior fans. A second season of American Ninja Warrior will premiere in December on G4, and this time it's bigger, better and even more daring. Season two will also take viewers for the first time inside a live-in boot camp where 15 finalists will train together and compete to make it to the final 10 who will go to Japan for the legendary competition. The American competitor who can complete all four stages of the world’s toughest obstacle course in Japan with the fastest final stage time will win a $250,000 prize.
Next month, open tryouts for the unforgiving competition will take place on Southern California's Venice Beach (August 7-8). More than 300 entrants are expected to begin here, but only 15 will emerge from these tryouts and move on to the “reality” portion of the competition.
During this stage, these 15 warrior wanna-bes will have the opportunity to live and train together at a boot camp in preparation for Japan's Mount Midoriyama. Divided into teams to test their character, all 15 must work together while also seeking the necessary edge to ensure their personal advancement. They will undertake difficult challenges that determine who lives most comfortably during this key physical and mental stage and, ultimately, who is eliminated prior to the trans-Pacific flight.
