Alex Kane is a 5th grade teacher who first competed in Venice in American Ninja Warrior 6.
In Qualifying, his run was digested but it was shown that he completed the course with the 9th fastest time. In the city finals, his run was digested again but it was shown that he was one of the many competitors that failed Cannonball Alley. However, he did make it to the obstacle at a fast enough time to place 10th overall.
His run on Stage 1 was digested as well, but it was shown that he failed the Spinning Bridge. Since no Venice finalist completed stage 1, he tied with Brian Kretsch, Robert Ing and Vadym Kuvakin for making it the farthest out of all the Venice national finalists that season.
