American Ninja Warrior Season 8: Meet the LA Qualifier Contestants 2016

UPDATE – Click here to see the 30 contestants who will be advancing to the regional finals.

Flip Rodriguez

Flip appeared on the show last season, and has run five years in a row. In Season 7, he got rid of the mask we usually see him wearing at the start of the race, and seemed more focused on the obstacles at hand. He told Zap2it, "The mask is a resemblance of what I went through, not who I am." On Sunday's all-star special, Flip became the Mega Wall champion after making it to the top of a 19-foot wall.
