American Ninja Warrior returns for its tenth season (six of those with NBC) on May 30, and for co-host Kristine Leahy the program is appealing on various fronts. For one, it encourages people to live a healthier and active lifestyle as they are inspired by the various stories and obstacles the participating ninjas have faced in their lives.
“This is one of the few shows left where you can sit down with your entire family and you don’t have to be covering their eyes or say you can’t be listening to this” said Leahy. “It’s such a family friendly show and all the messages are really uplifting. Anybody can do this if you can put your mind to it.”
