First she was pole vaulter. Then she became a successful Hollywood stuntwoman. Now Jessie Graff has a new achievement to add to her resume: most successful female contestant on American Ninja Warrior. The New York native made history earlier this week when she made it through stage one of the show’s finals.
Jessie’s impressive performance went viral overnight. News shows and websites were quick to give her praise. You’ve probably seen footage of her run through the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course all over social media. It even got a Lego recreation.
Jessie joined Kevin Klein Live to talk all about her newfound fame, what her success means for future contestants, and her idol, Jackie Chan.
