Wakeman’s dream to appear on the show came true earlier than expected because, for the first time in American Ninja Warrior” history, the age limit to compete is being lowered to 15 years old.

This season will see ‘returning favorites’ like Daniel Gil and ‘rising stars’ like Wakeham, who will get to make her American Ninja Warrior debut alongside her brother Isaiah Wakeham, who will also compete in season 13.

A top prize of $1 million will go to the winner of the highly anticipated athletic competition if they can conquer all four stages at the National Finals in Las Vegas.

You can catch the season premiere of American Ninja Warrior on Monday, May 31 at 7 p.m. on KPRC 2.
