This is it. After months of training and queels of qualifying, it's down to the final 10 (or as much as 12) Ninjas. Two more - Nate Hansen and Josiah Singleton - are left to take on Stage 2, and then it's on to Stage 3 and beyond with $1 million and the title of Ninja Warrior on the line.

As a reminder of Stage 2...
- STRIDING STEPS - This season the pedestals are arranged from largest to smallest.
- Double Salmon Ladder
- PISTON PLUNGE - For stage 2, the steering wheel drops less violently, but also is stationary.
- Hammer Drop
- HORNET'S NEST - New for 2022, it's essentially a larger scale Beehive.
- Falling Shelves

Contestants have four minutes to complete the stage.

RESULTS
- Nate Hansen: COMPLETE! (9.63 seconds remaining)
- Josiah Singleton (Safety Run): ... FAIL Piston Plunge

Now for the 11 remaining Ninjas, we have Stage 3, a grueling test of upper body strength.
- PATRIOT PASS - Cross a series of ropes connected on an axis that will pivot in relation to body weight.
- Stalactites
- CHOP IT UP - Three sets of cylinders are connecterd to taxes that drop at a certain angle. They have to swing through all three before they reach the landing.
- Ultimate Cliffhanger
- Pipe DReam
- Eyeglass Alley
- Flying Bar

Combatants have unlimited time to finish the stage.

RESULTS
- Flip Rodriguez: FAIL Ultimate Cliffhanger
- Jay Lewis: COMPLETE!
- Ethan Bartnicki: FAIL Pipe Dream
- Matt D'Amico: FAIL Flying Bar
- Max Feinberg: FAIL Chop It Up
- Josh Levin: COMPLETE!
- Cam Baumgartner: FAIL Pipe Dream
- RJ Roman: COMPLETE!
- Josiah Pippel: COMPLETE!
- Nate Hansen: FAIL Eyeglass Alley
- Kaden Lebsack: COMPLETE!

Now it's on to the final stage - the Rope Climb... Seventy-five feet... 30 seconds... $1 million and total victory.  Five ninjas have a shot at it, but will anyone do it? As a reminder, if no one does it in the alloted time, the Ninja who reaches the final buzzer at the peak of the mount in the fastest time wins $100,000 and the title of Last Man Standing.

RESULTS
- Josh Levin: FAIL (54.19s)
- RJ Roman: FAIL (44.60s)
- Josiah Pippel: FAIL (37.97s)
- Jay Lewis: FAIL (37.19s)
- Kaden Lebsack: .... FAIL (36.77s)

But with the fastest time, Kaden Lebsack wins $100,000 as Last Man Standing. Meanwhile we prepare for the next season. As the course continues to be ramped up for difficulty, stay with us for more crazy competitors, more outrageous obstacles, and more American Ninja Warrior!

Last week, the top six play a game of poker face, a game that Louise wins on dumb luck (because it involves a lie detector test). The bottom two? Kai & Amara. Amara wantd to take the guess. The players wanted her to guess. So she does... and correctly deduces that Kai is related to Tiffany Haddish... which she is. Now we're down to five as the competition ramps up to the end game.

CHALLENGE #8: SEVEN DEGREES OF SEPARATION. Each player draws a ball with a fellow player's name on it. They have to run through the house and find names placed all over the house. Then they have to order the names connecting the two. If they got all five within the time limit, they get a clue about how the fifth celebrity is related to their chosen player's celebrity.
- WINNER: LC, who learns that Logan's relative recorded a song with Kelly, that Lark's relative was in a tequila commercial with George Clooney, that Louise's relative was in "Mack & Moxie" with Hank Azaria, and that Pepper's relative was in "The Cannonball Run" with Jackie Chain.

As for LC? Her relative was in "Barbershop 2" with Queen Latifah.

For the record, Pepper was also right, but LC was by far the fastest. Pepper ends up teaming up with Logan to share intel.

Speaking of clues, here's one just for LC...
- 💩🛣️🇺🇸🎶🗾👨‍🎨
That translates to "Dirt Road Anthem Country Artist".

GUESS OFF #8: With only five people eligible, it comes down to Lark and Pepper. The vote... is SPLIT. So challenge-winner LC will break the tie.

GUESSER: LOGAN. He will choose one of the vulnerable players of the game and make ONE and only one guess as to their identity.
- LOGAN GUESSES: Louise.... is related to Simone Biles... and he... is... RIGHT! Louise, real name Adria Louise Biles, is the sister of Simone Biles, but if you have been paying attention, you already know that.

Four strangers are looking to win $100,000 simply by working together as a team in the Costa Rican jungle. But one of them is a Snake in the Grass - a player charged with sabotaging the efforts of the other three along the way. If the players do not name the Snake before the end of the show, they leave with nothing, and the Snake takes all the money.

Stephenie LaGrossa Kendrick

Cirie Fields

"Survivor" veteran

Each challenge has a clue attached. If you win the challenge. You get the clue.

CLUE #1: The young snake went fishing with tackle & bait,
She loved to think & contemplate.
In school, she joined a squad that had spirit
Grew up to speak her mind & let everyone hear it

CHALLENGE #1: SURE SHOT. You have 25 minutes to shoot lines with slingshots to release two crates, each of which contained a map that would lead to the clue.
- FAIL.

CLUE #2: The Snake loves games
Both physical & mental,
She spent lots of time
At church & at temple.

CHALLENGE #2: YEAH BUOY. Assemble a boat and row to a buoy. Under it is a key that has to be brought back to shore in 30 minutes.
- SUCCESS

The final clue is never revealed.

SNAKE PIT: Here, the four players will account for their actions and cast the deciding vote as to who the Snake is. If there is a majority decision and it's correct, the three honest players will split $100,000. If there is no majority decision or the decision is incorrect, the Snake takes the money all to themselves.

- Stephenie: JANELLE
