Chad Riddle is a kindergarten teacher from Red Lion PA.
This was later shown to be one of a major heartbreak for Chad, as he had promised to see his mother, Lori, at Las Vegas, only to fail to even make it past qualifying.
After 4 years of not being selected, Chad was selected as a walk-on to compete in Philadelphia in American Ninja Warrior 10. This time, he finished the qualifying course, placing 7th at the end of the night. His run in the city finals was digested, but it was shown that he surprisingly failed the Lightning Bolts and didn't advance to Vegas.
