Since the show is called American Ninja Warrior, you would expect the Americans to have an advantage in a worldwide invitational version of the show, right?

Now that the home team’s got extra motivation to win back the title, hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabamila are really looking forward to this year’s competition.
