She first competed in Philadelphia in American Ninja Warrior 8 and even though she failed Rolling Thunder, she did manage to grab the final spot in the top 30 and help make history as one of four women that advanced to the city finals.

In the city finals, she failed the Rolling Thunder again but was selected to compete in the national finals as a wildcard. Her run on stage one was digested but it was shown that she failed the Propeller Bar.

American Ninja Warrior 9

Allyssa returned to compete in Cleveland in American Ninja Warrior 9, where it was revealed that she was currently dating fellow competitor James McGrath.

In qualifying, she had a close call on the I-Beam Gap but she became the first competitor that night that cleared it. and she became just the sixth woman ever to scale the Warped Wall and the fifth woman ever to complete a qualifying course. Akbar even tossed her an apple from where he was in the host stand. Allyssa placed 14th and moved on to the city finals.

In the city finals, Allyssa had a close call on the first obstacle, the Floating Steps, but eventually cleared it and later made it all the way to the Nail Clipper before falling, but made it into the women's top 2 and advanced to Vegas.

American Ninja Warrior 10


Allyssa Beird at the Philadelphia City Qualifiers - American Ninja Warrior 2018

Allyssa returned to compete in Philadelphia in American Ninja Warrior 10. But this time, she competed along with her mother Daria Beird. While Daria failed the Spinning Bowties, Allyssa reached the Warped Wall where she failed to scale the mega one on her one attempt but managed to scale the regular 14’6’ wall and hit the buzzer making history as one of three women that hit the buzzer in Philadelphia. She placed 11th overall at the end of the night. Akbar even tossed her another apple from where he was in the host stand.

In the city finals, Alyssa fell on the Captain's Wheel but she placed 11th again and moved on to Las Vegas for the third year in a row.

On Stage One, in a huge shock, she failed the first obstacle, Archer Alley, as her season finally came to an end.

American Ninja Warrior 11

Allyssa returned to complete in Baltimore in American Ninja Warrior 11. Once again she competed with her mother Daria Beird. While Daria failed the Shrinking Steps and was cut from the broadcast, Allyssa ended being the only woman who get past the Hazard Cones, and she failed Crank It Up on the transition to second crank to the third crank. She placed 25th overall.

In the city finals, Allyssa got revenge on Crank It Up, and then she later failed the Angry Birds, like everyone else who made it to the obstacle did. Like qualifying she was the top women competitor and she was able to once again advance to the national finals. She placed 21st overall. In Vegas, she got revenge on the Archer Alley but then she later failed the Tire Run.

American Ninja Warrior 12

Allyssa returned in American Ninja Warrior 12, bringing Robert Moffitt and John Huie with her as part of her support group. While her two friends were knocked out by Rib Run, Allyssa cleared the course successfully, placed 8th and advanced to the semi-finals.

She competed in the first episode of the semifinals. In a surprising twist in the semi-finals, she failed the third obstacle, Clockwork and missed out on the finals. She was one of two competitors to fail there that round.

American Ninja Warrior 13

Allyssa returned to compete in the fourth qualifying episode of American Ninja Warrior 13. Her run was digested, but it was shown that she failed Pretzel Twist. This time, since five other women, including Meagan Martin (who was the only one to get past that obstacle), got to the obstacle faster than her, she unfortunately didn't qualify for the semifinals for the first time in her career. She placed 32nd overall, being on the bubble and eventually placing 6th out of the womens' after Meagan Martin completed the obstacle.

It should be noted that in the fourth episode of qualifying, she was one of only two (the other being Ethan Swanson) to attempt Block Run on Split Decision. The rest of the competitors that made it at least to the third obstacle that round all chose the Log Runner.

However, Allyssa actually completed in the second semifinals episode as an alternate for a competitor who withdrew. Her run was cut with no mention that she competed, but it was revealed that she failed the Spinning Bridge and didn't move on.
