Tremayne Dortch is a personal trainer from Houston, Texas who has first competed in American Ninja Warrior 4.
Dortch first competed on American Ninja Warrior 4. In his rookie year he was able to complete the qualifying and regional finals in the Midsouth Region. However, he was unable to complete the Half-Pipe Attack on Stage 1 in the Las Vegas National Finals.
Tremayne Dortch competed in ANW 5, where he completed the Denver qualifying course. In the Denver finals, he failed on the Pole Grasper, but he made it far enough fast enough to make it to Vegas. In Vegas, he failed on the Jumping Spider, despite beating it the year before.
Tremayne competed in American Ninja Warrior 6 in Dallas and took the 6th fastest time in qualifying. In the Dallas finals, he beat the Pole Grasper, which had taken him out in the city finals the year before, and he completed the course, making it to Vegas for the 3rd straight year. However, he failed on the Jumping Spider once again. In a post-run interview, Dortch was shown to be extremely devastated about his second consecutive failure on the Jumping Spider.
Tremayne competed in Houston in ANW 7. This time, he competed along with his wife, Cassandra Dortch. In qualifying, while Cassandra failed the Tilting Slider during her run, Tremayne cleared the course with the 7th fastest time.
Then, in the Houston Finals, Tremayne was the first competitor to clear the Walking Bar, Only 5 competitors were able to make it past that obstacle. Tremayne later fell one obstacle later on the Crazy Cliffhanger, but once again went far enough fast enough to go to Vegas for the 4th straight year, placing 5th overall.
In Vegas, Tremayne was able to get his revenge on the Jumping Spider, and complete Stage 1 for the first time, leaving only 1.97 seconds left on the clock. His Stage 2 run was digested, however it was shown that he reached the Unstable Bridge, however almost immediately after transitioning to the first board, his right hand lost grip and he fell into the water.
In ANW 8, he competed in the Oklahoma City and once again cleared the qualifying round, where he placed 14th overall. In the finals he struggled on the Ring Swing, but still made it to the back half of the course. However, Dortch shockingly failed the Salmon Ladder, an obstacle that he had never failed in the past. This was the first time that he didn't qualify for Vegas, as he was knocked back to 16th place by Karsten Williams, who ran last.
In ANW 9, he competed in San Antonio for his sixth appearance. In qualifying, he got past the first four obstacles with ease, but ultimately fatigued on the Pipe Fitter. This was the first time that he had failed on a qualifying course, but he still made it into the top 30, placing 27th overall.
In the finals he got revenge on the Pipe Fitter, and later got redemption on the Salmon Ladder, but was one of many competitors who failed the Hourglass Drop. Unfortunately his time wasn't fast enough to make the top 15, and he failed to qualify for Vegas for the second year in a row, placing 18th overall.
Dortch returned in Dallas in ANW 10, where he was able to get redemption in qualifying by completing the course, being one of only 13 competitors to do so. Though he didn't attempt the Mega Wall, he finished the course with the 11th fastest time overall.
Unfortunately, history repeated itself as just like in American Ninja Warrior 8, Tremayne fell on the Salmon Ladder and failed to make the national finals for the third year in a row. He placed 21st overall by the end of the night.
He returned in Oklahoma City, but in a similar fashion to the San Antonio two years ago, he went out on the fifth obstacle, this time being the Coconut Climb. He still placed 24th overall.
In the city finals, Tremayne got revenge on the Coconut Climb, but again, just like ANW 9, Tremayne fell on the eighth obstacle, Crazy Clocks, and did not advance to Vegas for the fourth year in the row, placing 16th overall. Both of his runs this season were not featured on the broadcast.
