Wait, has ANW ever made a City Finals be later than it should be, with one coming earlier? Is it because KC has a lack of big names? I didnt see the promo, but seems like everyone else did.
KC had Lance Pekus, Jeremiah Morgan, Brandon Mears, Dan Polizzi, Ethan Swanson, etc.
I mean, they are popular, but like I mean. They arent as iconic by the network or fans as lets say, Grant McCartney, Jessie Graff, Drew Drechsel, Daniel Gil, etc. KC doesent have the biggest names out there compared to other cities, but they certainly can be as strong as the big ones. I'm just trying to think why they did this.
Highs: •Kevin Carbone (dude that made the Wingnuts) coming up with a new strategy on the Giant Cubes!
•Jessie becoming the second woman to beat Rolling Thunder AND the first to beat the Circuit Board! I love how competitors who fall in Qualifying improve their on their performances in Finals, it really shows that they know the stakes are higher, and they need to give it their all!
•Drew’s run was astounding! And his American Flag belt was pretty cool, where can I get one of those?
Lows: •I don't remember if I said this last time, but the Rolling Pin is stupid.
•Never thought Brett Sims would fail something like the Salmon Ladder
•I hate how during the regular season, they pretend the some events of Team Ninja Warrior never happened. At one point, Matt said that the woman running could be the first mom up the Wall, had she made it there. Uh, Jennifer Tavernier, almost two years ago at this point?
Other: •Totally forgot Drew used to sell used cars, lol
•Why were there another pair of handles on the third Circuit Board? There wasn't another pair last year, were they like, smaller balls or something?
•Why so many notable digests? (see below)
Kacy Count: 0
Jessie Count: 35 (I count every time her name is spoken or shown, the camera cuts to a new shot of her in previews, and her fluff piece and run are both +1, is that too much?)
Fluff Piece Count: 9
Mid-cut: •JJ Woods •Sean Darling-Hammond
Digested: •Brett Sims •Bootie Cothran •Nick Patel •Alexio Gomes •Michael Johnson (He got a fluff piece, wtf?) •Reko Rivera (double digest?) •Ryan Stratis •Tyler Gillett (He was either in first or second place after his run, why?) •Casidy Marks •Lucas Gomes (BOTH Brazi Bros.?) •Travis Rosen

Elevator Climb is a friggin monster. I've started playing the old final stage fail theme when someone fails, you can see how spent they are physically mentally and emotionally when they get the ride back down on the pad
