American Ninja Warrior Season 12 Episode 4 Recap

‘American Ninja Warrior’s last round of Qualifiers is definitely mindblowing, considering the single fact that so many Ninjas are able to make it to the buzzer. In total, we have 15 complete courses. And seven among the buzzers are first buzzers. Tiana Webberley and Mady Howard manage to get their first buzzers. However, here is the twist. This season allows only the top 12 to advance to the Semis. A buzzer does not give any guarantee to a player.

Tiana and Mady’s time to reach the buzzer does not give them a place among the top 12. But luckily, they secure a place in the Semi-Finals, alongside Meagan Martin. Why? Well, the top three women are picked to proceed to the next round. Unluckily, Vance Harris, who hits the buzzer as well, is eliminated.

The top 12 Ninjas to proceed to the Semis after the 4th round of Qualifiers are Michael Torres, Joe Moravsky, Lucas Reale, Kid Owhadi, Amir Malik, David Wright, Lance Pekus, Kevin Bull, Alex Nye, Brian Kretsch, Alex Carson, and Verdale Benson. The top three women are Mady Howard, Tiana Webberley, and Meagan Martin. The pair that advances due to Power Tower are Jeshuah Lewis and Will Schlagete.
