Kevin Carbone is a tennis instructor from Alpharetta, Georgia. Carbone was perhaps notable for being one of the seven winners from ANW's obstacle design challenge, eventually becoming the first designer to compete on a created obstacle, which he created the Wingnuts in Daytona Beach qualifying.
Carbone currently serves as a professional ANW obstacle course designer, being invited to create for others after his success as an Obstacle Design Challenge winner.
Oddly enough, despite winning the obstacle design challenge, Carbone did not get a call back from the casting crew for his submission to compete on the course. He then relied on waiting in the walk-on line, which he luckily one of the few selected. Carbone was then able to attempt his own creation, the Wingnuts, which had a high knockout rate eliminating 40 competitors in qualifying. Carbone was able to complete his own and managed to finish the course with the 13th fastest time.
In the city finals, he became the first competitor of the night that cleared the Giant Cubes. Though Carbone later fell one obstacle later on the Circuit Board, he placed 8th and moved on to the national finals. In the national finals, Carbone fell on the Jumping Spider.
Carbone competed in American Ninja Warrior 10 in Miami. Although his run was digested, it was shown that he failed the Slippery Summit, an obstacle that won the Obstacle Design Challenge, in qualifying, in which he placed 12th overall.
In the city finals his run was digested again, but it was shown that he shockingly fell on the Cannonball Drop, after his kept eyes closed during the obstacle and botched the dismount. He didn't move on to the national finals, as he placed 23rd at the end of the Miami finals.
It was revealed during the season 10 finale that Carbone had entered the Obstacle Design Challenge once again, and submitted the obstacle, Déjà Vu, winning the challenge for the second year in a row. However, since he was eliminated in the Miami finals, he missed another potential opportunity to attempt his own creation. It is worth noting that his submission and the Slippery Summit, the obstacle that took him out in Miami qualifying, were the only two Design Challenge obstacles to win in ANW 10.
