Annie Dudek is a PE teacher from Independence, Missouri.
She first competed in American Ninja Warrior 7 in Kansas City, where she put a strong run, making it all the way to Bungee Road before falling. Although she didn't make the city finals, she was later as a wildcard for Las Vegas. Her run was cut, but she failed the first obstacle, Piston Road.
She later came back from season 9, once again in Kansas City. She put another strong run by making it to Crank It Up and placing 2nd in the womens' top 5 in the qualifiers. During the city finals however, she failed Crank It Up once again, and did not land in the top 2 at the end of the night.
Dudek returned to compete in American Ninja Warrior 10 in Indianapolis. Though her run was totally cut from the broadcast, it is known she made an earlier than anticipated exit on just the second obstacle, Cannonball Drop.
She returned for American Ninja Warrior 11, and competed in Oklahoma City. In qualifying, her run was cut, but it was revealed that she once again failed early, this time on just the first obstacle, the Shrinking Steps.
