Jake Murray is a wedding photographer from Denver, Colorado. He has competed in two American Ninja Warrior tournaments, and is known for his crazy antics on the course.
American Ninja Warrior 7
In Las Vegas, Murray did quite well again. He completed Stage One with the second fastest time, celebrating by doing a cannonball into the water below. He later fell on the Double Salmon Ladder in Stage Two.
American Ninja Warrior 8
Jake Murray returned in American Ninja Warrior 8, now a fan favorite. He placed 2nd in both Qualifying and Finals in Indianapolis, completing both courses.
On Stage One, he puzzled many people by wearing a fanny pack during his run. After he completed the course with the fastest time, he took out a pair of goggles, preparing for another dive into the water below. Then he pulled out a corn dog, took a bite out of it, threw it behind him, and jumped into the water like in the year before. In Stage 2, Murray got revenge from last season on the new Down Up Salmon Ladder and even cleared the next two obstacles. Unfortunately, on the Double Wedge, his grip strength gave out on the transition to the next bar, causing him to fall in the water.
American Ninja Warrior 9
Jake Murray returned for season 9 of the show and had a fun entrance while riding a segway and kicking his helmet at the starting line. Although he was partying at the block the celebration was cut short when he quickly was eliminated on the third obstacle the Bouncing Spider.
