American Ninja Warrior 7

He made his debut in American Ninja Warrior 7 in the Venice City Qualifying Round with an explosive personality and heartbreaking year. During the season, he cleared the City Qualifiers, however failed the City Finals at the Clear Climb. This performance was good enough to get him to the Las Vegas finals, where he cleared the First Stage with 9.59 seconds to spare. However, in the Second Stage, he failed the Double Salmon Ladder.

He's moving on to the Los Angeles City Finals, where he would love to complete the course there. In the city finals, he blazed through the first seven obstacles but shocked everyone by failing the Wedge. Because he went the farthest and fastest, he placed 10th overall and moved on to the Las Vegas finals. On Stage One, Grant was the first competitor to make it past the Flying Squirrel and hit the buzzer, finishing the stage with just 4.81 seconds to spare. But on Stage Two, history repeated itself as he shockingly failed on another version of the Salmon Ladder, the Down Up Salmon Ladder.
