Professional stuntwoman Jessie Graff is competing for the $1 million prize on American Ninja Warrior Season 8. Last year no woman went farther in the competition. But Jessie didn’t have her pet pig Sammo cheering her on back then. In April, Jessie opened an Instagram account on behalf of Sammo, and it’s hilarious. Sammo is seen “helping” Jessie with her ab workout (read: laying on Jessie’s stomach), doing sprints, and “coaching” Jessie on her handstand form (sniffing around her hands while Jessie’s suspended).
Jessie even brought Sammo to the American Ninja Warrior Season 8 qualifiers last week in Philadelphia, where Sammo was photographed roaming around the stage. See photo below. American Ninja Warrior airs Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
