Jake Smith (ジェイク・スミス) is a parkour veteran on Team Rogue that competed in American Ninja Warrior 1. His run was digested, but it was shown that he finished the qualifier placing 26th. In the Semifinals, he made a miraculous save on the Spider Wall, when his feet slipped at the end of the chute, and he managed to barely land on the platform. He did manage to complete the course, however his time (1:58.17) was too slow as he lost to Tempest member and veteran Ninja Warrior competitor Richard King, placing 19th overall.
He and fellow members Drew Drechsel and Korey Sarvas competed in American Ninja Warrior 3. Jake completed the qualifiers in around 52 seconds, but in the Semi-Finals he failed the Salmon Ladder. His fall causing a nasty gash on his left eye. He completed the first 6 obstacles in around 49 seconds, placing 16th. After the Semi-Finals however, Michael Zernow (who had bumped him out of the top 15) had to drop out due to an injury and Smith replaced him in Boot Camp. He earned himself a spot in SASUKE 27 and he made it past Stage 1 with over 7 seconds left, but failed the Double Salmon Ladder in Stage 2.
In American Ninja Warrior 4 Jake beat the qualifier in 54 seconds, but he slowed down in the regional finals and placed 10th to knock out Angel Flores. In the Vegas Finals Jake struggled in the First Stage on all of the first 5 obstacles and eventually timed out on the Soritatsu Kabe due to fatigue and exhaustion.
In American Ninja Warrior 5 Jake easily cleared most of the obstacles, but he slipped on the Soritatsu Kabe, however he managed to beat it and post the third fastest time. In the Denver Finals, he made it to the Floating Stairs, but due to being so fatigued after the other obstacles he grabbed one of the rungs of the Salmon Ladder and jumped off to the platform. It was still enough to place 12th in the City Finals. In Stage 1 he failed the Jumping Spider marking his second straight Stage 1 failure. He hasn't competed since.
Jake also competed in Jump City: Seattle. He was the only Rogue player to participate in every match. Ultimately the team was eliminated in the semi-finals against Team Tribe.
