American Ninja Warrior

American Ninja Warrior 8

She first competed in Philadelphia in American Ninja Warrior 8 and even though she failed Rolling Thunder, she stayed in the top 30 placing 29th. This became a historical moment in American Ninja Warrior, as she was one of four women to make the top 30 and advance to the city finals, leading to the creation of the Fantastic Four. In the city finals, she failed the Wall Drop but was selected to compete in the national finals as a wildcard.

Her run on Stage 1 was cut, but it was revealed that she failed the Propeller Bar.

American Ninja Warrior 9

On American Ninja Warrior 9, she ran the course in Cleveland. Her run was digested, but it was shown she failed the Ring Jump and did not move on. She was the only member of the Fantastic Four to not advance to the city finals.

American Ninja Warrior 10


Rachael Goldstein at the Miami City Finals - American Ninja Warrior 2018

She returned in American Ninja Warrior 10 in Miami, where her run was once again digested but she failed the Slippery Summit. Her run was good enough to place 24th overall and 2nd among the women to move her on to the city finals.

In the city finals she got revenge on the Slippery Summit and became the 13th woman to scale the Warped Wall. She ultimately failed on the Crazy Clocks, but her run was good enough to not only place 2nd in the Women's top 2, but was also good enough for her to place 14th overall. Overall, Goldstein was one of just 5 women this season to rank in the top 15 during a city finals round.

On stage one, she got redemption on the Propeller Bar, which knocked her out two years ago. However, she lost her grip on the Double Dipper.

Rachael announced on Instagram that she will not compete in Baltimore on American Ninja Warrior 11, as she is expecting her first child. Her daughter, Finley Rose Stahl, was born on October 11th, 2019.

American Ninja Warrior 12

After taking the previous year off due to her pregnancy, Rachael returned to compete on American Ninja Warrior 12. She put together a group of new parents, which included her former Superhero Squad teammate Sean Darling-Hammond. Although her run was digested, she fell on the Beehive. Still, it was fast enough to get into the top 3 for the females and qualify for the semi-finals. On her instagram, she stated that while filming an extra episode between the taping of her qualifier and semi finals, she broke her finger, and had to withdraw. She was replaced with Jeri D'Aurelio.

While Rachael did get the call to compete on American Ninja Warrior 13, she backed out due to personal family business.
