Of the many contestants to try their best to complete the course and make it up the wall to the buzzer, only 13 were successful.

The first winner of the episode was 17-year-old Christopher Harding Jones, who completed the run in honor of his late father.

Several of the contestants to make it through have appeared on American Ninja Warrior in the past, including James "The Beast" McGrath who succeeded after being forced to take a break from competing on the show due to a shoulder injury.

After making it through the course and hitting the buzzer, McGrath then proposed to his girlfriend, and fellow competitor, Allyssa Beird.

Brett Sims has appeared on the show 11 times in the past, and he succeeded in reaching the buzzer once again.

Casey Rothschild, who became the youngest woman to hit a buzzer on the show in Season 10 aged 20, also made it through to the semi-finals for the second time.

History was made in the first round of qualifiers, though, when Rothschild's record was beaten by 15-year-old Jordan Carr.

The fastest run of the night went to R.J. Roman who completed the course in an impressive 1 minute and 51 seconds.

Roman, McGrath, Brett Hernandez Strong, and Bob Reese all scaled the Mega Wall to get to the buzzer, tying the record for the show.
