American Ninja Warrior Season 13 Episode 8 Recap

Episode 8 of ‘American Ninja Warrior’ season 13 marked the third night of the Semi-Finals! Sean Bryan, otherwise known as the “Papal Ninja,” was the first contender on the course. Seconds later, he injured himself and ended up with a terrible bruise. However, that did not stop him from being the first finisher of the night. A couple of contestants, namely Francisco Barajas (“One Percent Ninja”), DeShawn Harris, Bob Reese, Kevin Carbone, Tage Herrington, and 15-year-old Enzo DeFerarri Wilson, fell on Padlock.

Coming up next was David Campbell, the ninja who has competed on every season of the show. He took multiple blows to the head throughout his run and eventually fell into the water. Nate Pardo and Tyler Gillett then dropped out on Diving Boards, followed by Brittney Durant, who couldn’t cross Drop Zone. 15-year-old Josiah Pippel became the second finisher of the night. The next ninja Megan Rowe had one of her best runs so far. She made it to Padlock and was fast enough to seal a spot in the next round from the women’s division.

The next person was Adam Rayl, the third finisher of the night who couldn’t beat Sean’s timing for a margin of seconds. Next up was Vincent Pane, part of the Northern California ninjas, who fell during the second half of the obstacle course despite his clear-cut physique. Florida’s Austin Hair fell on the balance obstacle, followed by Meagan Martin, who was on a roll until Padlock, where she gave up. Jonathan Godbout and Brett Sims were the next finishers.

Coming up next was Vance Walker, who sped through the course setting a record as the fastest ninja so far, which also earned him a spot in the Power Tower. Next up was “Heavy Metal Ninja” RJ Roman, who made a minor blunder in Diving Boards and dropped into the water. However, his speed pulled him through to the next round. At the end of the episode, Vance Walker defeated Josiah Pippel to win the Safety Pass.
