In American Ninja Warrior 1, Ruselis had a decent run in qualifying. He flew through the first four obstacles despite a small stumble on the dismount of the Rope Swing, but began to slow down on the Pipe Slider. Despite the struggle, he pulled through and cleared in 47.9 seconds. In the Semi Finals he failed the Jumping Bars.
In the next competition he was disqualified on the Jumping Spider because he grabbed a bar and swung to the other side.
