Will Kacy Catanzaro’s historic runs be unseated?
We knew it was coming. We’re down to the final four runs in the season six American Ninja Warrior “greatest buzzer” bracket and two of them belong to Kacy Catanzaro. It’s hard to disagree with the votes, though. Kacy’s Qualifier run was the first time we saw a woman defeat the Warped Wall. Her City Finals run was the first time a woman reached the buzzer on the extended course. Both are highly deserving of a “greatest buzzer” title.
Remember, the winner of this bracket has to face Joe Moravsky – National Finals, Stage One in a bonus round once all is said and done! (He was the Last Ninja Standing in season six.)
Can Kevin Bull’s upside down debut edge out one of Kacy’s runs and move into the final round? What about Travis Rosen’s National Finals run? He never fails to inspire. Or will be it Kacy vs Kacy in the championship match up? Let’s find out!
- We’re starting with season four in 2012.
That was the first season the show started traveling from location to location, and that the National Finals were held in Las Vegas. Also, we’re starting with this season because that’s as far back as we can find videos for the runs on one of the two different official YouTube accounts that archive them. This one with G4 and USA Network videos and this one with NBC videos.
- The run has to have a video on one of those channels.
We feel it’s important for the voters to be able to watch the runs. That way, even if they weren’t watching way back in 2012, they can still participate in the vote. We realize this excludes buzzer runs that aren’t posted. The system is not perfect. We’ve accepted that.
- They have to hit a buzzer.
There are many, MANY ways to qualify a run as great: If the person made history of some kind, if they overcame something, if they just really grit it out. But our mind exploded trying to figure out a bracket of polls that included ALL the runs, so we’re just talking about buzzers this time.
- The original match ups are pretty random.
They’re just related to how the videos are sorted on the YouTube pages. No other thought went into it. Oh well. 🙂
- If an additional run is needed to balance the bracket, we’ll include the “Last Ninja Standing” run of that season. Think of it as a wildcard.
- We’ll move through all the seasons, and then circle back through the rounds.
