Ok Peeps! The time has come to talk about American Ninja Warrior & Chris!
Chris is a professional stuntman and has successfully competed in ANW twice before! Let me just start with how CRAZY this trip was!
We got on the road on Thursday night! We had to cross Utah, Colorado, Kansas, and arrive at Missouri! Throughout our trip, we literally experienced all 4 seasons! Originally we had planned to drive and not stop until we got there, but Colorado had different plans for us! It was snowing the whole time, the roads were slick, and it was super foggy so cars were going about 30 miles per hour! We even helped a guy out who's car got stranded! They eventually closed the roads at 3am so we had no other option but to get off the freeway and find a hotel.
The next morning when we woke up (at 9 am), there must have been almost 2 feet of snow! We had to literally dig ourselves out of the parking lot. Luckily across the street was a Family Dollar and I bought a shovel and Chris dug out our car and someone else's car (the little helper that he is) and then after an hour we were finally on our way. Mind you, when we got on the road, the other side was still closed and there was at least 10 miles of stopped traffic and a bunch of car crashes *Counting our blessings* ! As we are driving, Chris gets a call from one of the producers of ANW saying that his call time was switched from 11pm to 9pm! We panicked cause with all of our delays, we were cutting it close to 11pm! If he missed Call Time, he would have automatically been disqualified! So we stop and get all the food we think we'll need for the next 10 hours and drove straight to Missouri. We were also going kinda fast.... and we can't say how fast cause our mom's might be reading this (Love you moms!) Through the drive we experienced a snow storm, then rain, move-your-steering-wheel winds, and then crazy sunshine. I guess that is what happens when you travel across state on the road.
We literally got there at 8:50-something and I was like "GET OUT OF THE CAR & RUN, I WILL PARK THE CAR! GO!"
He checked in right at 9pm and he didn't go on until ......................... 4 am in the morning! So much for rushing! At least we got free food and in the meantime, we met some pretty cool people!!! We made friends with a group from Chicago who's contestant was also named Chris! He was a teacher and a ton of his students had come out to see him as well as his fam! They were a blast to hang out with. For those 6 hours of waiting, we chatted & played 'Heads Up' and watched other contestants!
Finally, minutes before it was Chris's turn, he turns to me and says:
"What if I fail this thing, and we get to sleep in tomorrow and explore Missouri City?"....
"Um, don't say that or our whole crazy drive would have been for nothing"...........
"Eh, I guess you are right" ....
So they call him back stage to warm up, and they ask me if I want to walk next to him during his run. I'm not sure why but I was hesitant and shy about this, but I did it anyway. And then little mister warrior went up.
American Ninja Warrior Season 7 airs tonight! Make sure to watch it cause they might air Chris's run! Love you all !

Click for sound The President keeps hounding me to run the American Ninja Warrior course this year. It's like, just stop. You're looking super desperate. Long story short, I told him I'd do it as long as Emma Watson and is waiting to marry me at the top of Mt.
