In American Ninja Warrior 5, he was expected to do well due to his performance the previous competition, but shocked many when he failed the fourth obstacle in the qualifiers, the Floating Chains, when he grabbed the chain too low and his downward momentum pulled him off the chain and into the water.
He came back to compete in American Ninja Warrior 6. This time, he was able to complete the qualifying course. He failed Cannonball Alley in the city finals but was fast enough to qualify for Las Vegas. In Vegas, he was one of the many to fail the new obstacle, the Silk Slider when he slipped off the silk as it started declining.
