Thank you to everyone who stayed up and watched American Ninja Warrior on TV with us last night. We were uncertain if they would show Roam or Chairman Platinum’s runs through the show’s obstacle course. So, when Roam appeared on TV as the 3rd contestant we literally jumped out of our seats and cheered! If you looked at the footage closely, you could see Chairman Platinum running alongside Roam… apparently hurling insults. Unfortunately, the Chairman’s run was not televised. We are hoping the show will post the clip on their website, or the producers will send us a copy to show you. Until then… here is Roam to tell you what happened!
"I didn’t just defeat Chairman Platinum, I beat him so bad they didn’t even show him on TV! So here’s what happened: He showed up on the platform, ready to go, in his full on black business suit. He stood there for 2 minutes making fun of the crowd and yelling at me before ripping his sleeves off. Then the buzzer rang and off he went. One step. Then another. Right into the water. The insulted crowd cheered his failure. When he emerged from the water he was furious. Angela Sun, the sideline correspondent interviewed him after the run. She asked him, “What happened?” Chairman Platinum replied, “Didn’t you see? That ninja. He shot me with a blowgun dart!” and produced a blowgun from the side of his neck. Angela was completely surprised and speechless. Then Chairman Platinum continued, “Next year, I’ll be back. Even if it means I have to buy this stinking company.” It was absolutely hilarious. I can’t believe they didn’t show this on TV. Maybe the Chairman pulled a few strings to make sure it didn’t get aired? Next year, I hope Artix and I will conquer this course together.
Chairman Platinum took two steps and *SPLASH*
Woohoo! Thank you for the update, Roam, and congratulations on your run. If the Chairman honors his agreement, Artix Entertainment will be given control of the game Oversoul. We will anxiously be awaiting his response to the situation. Until next year's show we are looking forward to see you and Drew Drechsel at the ANW DragonCon Panel!
