Appearing on American Ninja Warrior’s Season 8 premiere, Jessie Graff became the first woman to complete the course. Graff is a stunt performer on DC’s Supergirl, but kicked the qualifier’s ass in full Wonder Woman swag.
As hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila pointed out, Graff had competed on the series before but looked much stronger on her second try. Well, duh.
Graff is black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a black sash in Kung Fu, and also a former pole vaulter. Her stunt resume is very impressive, including blockbusters like X-Men: First Class, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Live Free or Die Hard.
You can also see her on Supergirl as Season 2 premieres this Fall on the CW, joining the established DC weekly lineup of The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. When they do the 4-show week-long crossover event, just keep in mind that there was a badass American Ninja Warrior on set…who also starred in a live-action Family Guy “Chicken Fight” video? Oh yeah.
