In honor of today being the final episode (not including the special) of ANW 6 where there might be an American to win a show I wanted to created a thread where people could vote on and discuss who that may be if any and the athletic background they many come from. There may be a winner tonight or not (yes I already know the answer) but if there isn't vote on who you think might win in the future competitions (ANW has been renewed for season 7).
Yuuji, during USA vs. The World, will be the first person to pass all American obstacles, mwahahahaha.
On another note...here are the 18 people that cleared Stage 1, so they should probably be added to the vote choices: Abel Gonzalez Andrew Lowes Isaac Caldiero Joseph "Jo Jo" Bynum Ryan Stratis Lorin Ball Travis Rosen Noah Kaufman Joe Moravsky Yen Chen Chris Wilczewski Joshua Cook Elet Hall J. J. Woods Paul Kasemir Dan Galiczynski Ian Dory Brian Arnold

I'm saying Joe. This was just his second year and he was Last Man Standing. He's never missed out on making it to stage 3, and this year progressed further than he did last year (and mentioned in his post-run interview that he's gonna take rock-climbing more seriously). He's the only person to attempt stage 3 twice under the current format. How's that for consistency?

I don't know about Isaac Cardiro. Don't remember him.
Isaac Caldiero, on the other hand, has a decent shot if he can just make it to stage 3. He trains really hard for stage 3, and seems almost like an UNCLI in that if he makes it to Stage 3, he'll probably beast mode his way through it. It's the whole "getting to Stage 3" he's having issues with. I think that's more of a mental lapse than lack of ability, though.
