Chris Howard is an auto mechanic and ANW superfan from Nashville, Tennessee.
In his first appearance on the course, he participated in Indianapolis as one of the new 19 year old rookies on the course. However, his run was very short, as he tripped on just the first obstacle, the Floating Steps.
It was later revealed that he pulled a leg muscle in the midst of the obstacle, causing him to misstep.
He later returned in American Ninja Warrior 11, competing in Atlanta. His qualifying run was cut, but he managed to complete the course this time around, placing 13th.
His run in the city finals was also cut, but he failed the Ferris Wheel, placing 23rd overall and not moving on.
