Tonight’s episode of American Ninja Warrior is the Dallas city finals. The first six obstacles remain the same from qualifying, the ninjas must race through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the swing jump, the ring toss, and the warped wall. Four obstacles have been added, the salmon ladder, the swinging frames, the pole grasper, and the spider climb. If they complete those ten obstacles, they are guaranteed a qualifying spot in nationals.

The first athlete to try and complete the city finals course tonight is personal chef Eric McKeethen. He cruises through the quintuple steps and the log drop, but unfortunately the tilting tables get the best of him.

Up next is ANW alum Matthew Laessig, after five seasons, this is the first time Matthew has ever made it to the city finals. Laessig runs through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the swing jump, and unfortunately misses a ring on the ring toss and he is out of the competition.

Engin Dolen, a walk-on truck driver from Texas, is the next athlete to try to complete the Dallas city final course. Dolen passes through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the swing jump, the ring toss, the warped wall, and unfortunately falls during the salmon ladder.

Up next is Geoffrey Moetil, a 39 year old stuntman from Texas.  Geoffrey jumps on the first quintuple steps and grabs a hold of the back of the quintuple step.  He jumps off the course and on to the ground and storms off, shouting that he broke the rules by grabbing the back of the step and he was going to be disqualified for it anyways.
Daniel Manuel, a 40 year old firefighter from Oklahoma, is up next on the American Ninja Warrior course.  Daniel runs through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table and the swing jump.  However, he loses his grip on the swing toss and is out of the race.

Jeremy Morgan, a 24 year old hailing from Mississippi is the next athlete to try to complete the course.  His father Mark and his brother Josh both competed in Dallas tryouts with Jeremy, but Jeremy was the only member of the family that made it to the finals.  Jeremy runs through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the swing jump, scales the warped wall, the salmon ladder, the swinging frames, and the pole grasper.  He propels up the spider climb and hits the buzzer, he is the first competitor to complete the Dallas city finals and he is heading to the finals in Las Vegas.

Fan favorite and Ninja Warrior gym owner and trainer Sam Sann is ready to try to complete the Dallas city finals course.  He runs through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the swing jump, the ring toss, the warped wall, the salmon ladder, and unfortunately loses his grip on the swinging frames.

28 year old personal trainer Tremayne Dortch is the next athlete to try and conquer the Dallas city finals course. Tremayne runs through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the swing jump, the ring toss, and scales the warped wall with ease.

Cass runs through the quintuple steps, the hanging log, the tilting table, the ring toss, and up the warped wall. Cass cruises through the salmon ladder, and unfortunately can’t make the transition on the swinging frame and falls off the course.

Up next is Kevin Klein, a flag runner for the Dallas cowboys and cheerleading coach. Klein rushes through the quintuple steps, the log drop, the tilting table, the ring toss, and up the warped wall. Klein flies up the salmon ladder, the swinging frame, and unfortunately loses his grip on the pole grasper and falls in to the water.
