    In the season finale, the mythical Mt. Midoriyama Stage 4 hangs in the balance as the remaining athletes fight to beat veteran Brent Steffensen's Stage 3 record. But they'll also have to go toe-to-toe with the record holder himself. The remaining competitors head into the challenge knowing far too well that no American has ever made it past Stage 3--and if they manage to complete the entire course, they'll be taking home the prize money of 500,000 dollars. But will Brent defend his title, or will rookie Noah Kaufman take it with ease? Or perhaps the oldest remaining athlete Travis Rosen or the world champion tumbler Casey Finley will snatch it up. Find out if an American will finally advance to Stage 4 and gain the title of the American Ninja Warrior!moreless
