On American Ninja Warrior, the top 30 competitors from the Venice Qualifier will have a go at the Finals course. Obstacles include the Salmon Ladder, Rumbling Dice, Clear Climb and Invisible Ladder. One of the 30 competitors is stuntwoman/trapeze artist Jessie Graff. If she makes it (July 13), she’ll go on to the national final rounds in Las Vegas. Graff has a good chance of winning the $1 million. She became the first woman to make it past the qualifying round on ANW in 2013.
You can see Graff’s professional stunt work in Ted 2, X-Men: First Class, Sons of Anarchy, Bridesmaids, and The Dark Knight, among other films. Before making it in Hollywood, Graff was a pole vaulter at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She also fancies herself a filmmaker. Check out her hilarious “Epic Chick Fight” (below). American Ninja Warrior airs Mondays at 8pm on NBC.
