Ben Behrends Career
The first competition he had in his life was American Ninja Warrior Junior, and most recently, he is appearing for American Ninja Warrior 15. Summing up, he has participated in three overall competitions. When he participated in American Ninja Warrior Junior, he was around 11-12 years old.
His runs were shown in Episode 14, and after that, in the seeding round, he stood against Addy Herman and lost the game. Then, he entered the knockout round in the losing seed. He defeated Sophie Stuart in the final showdown, again stood against Addy Herman, and lost the game to him. This further ended his season for the game. Then, he also came to American Ninja Warrior 14.
American Ninja Warrior 15
This time, Ben has returned with American Ninja Warrior 15 in the fifth qualifying round, pairing up with his dad, Scott. Though he failed the fifth obstacle in the “Ring the Bells round”, that was enough to put him in 7th place and advance to the semi-finals.
On the same side, his father completed the course with the fourth fastest time. He has advanced to the second season’s national finals, and that is to be with a faster time. At Stage One, he had a tie with Tyler Yamauchi and was the shortest male competitor to complete the obstacle.
Then, he completed the gambler round, which knocked out his dad earlier, but he did not meet the task within the given time, and the task was timed out. He completed the round and advanced to Stage Two, having the 21st overall position.
