Jay Lewis On American Ninja Warrior
Jay Lewis was a fan of American Ninja Warrior before he made the decision to sign up for the competition. He fell in love with the show after watching it with his grandparents. He explained to NH Register, “We really enjoyed watching it, but at that point, it was just something that whenever we went [to his grandparents’ house] for a week in the summer, we’d watch it”.
Jay added, “But then we started thinking about it and we were like, ‘We really like this show,’ and we started recording it and watching the season”. He played soccer but the athleticism of ninja competition appealed to him. So, in order to practice, he built his own obstacle course at home.
Jay claims that he became addicted to ninja training after taking a trial class in his birthplace of Connecticut. He began competing with a ninja team at the gym, which gave him the opportunity to sign up for American Ninja Warrior Junior in 2018. Jay made it to the semifinals at the time.
He then received an invitation to compete in season 12 of American Ninja Warrior. However, the pandemic put his plans on hold. Following his participation in American Ninja Warrior Season 13, Jay also went off against Joe Moravsky, his mentor and current rival, in the All-Star Spectacular.
Jay also opened up about the difference between the junior and adult versions. According to NH Register, he explained, “It’s definitely a format of just having to beat the course to move on, which is something that I really enjoy. On ‘Junior,’ it was a lot different in having the feeling that you didn’t just have to beat the course, you had to beat the person you were racing…When I’m on the show, my only goal is to hit a buzzer. I’m not worried about going for the fastest time or any of that sort of stuff”.
Now, Jay has returned to the show as an adult in season 14. He has made it to the semifinals. So, let’s learn a few things about his life beyond the TV show.

Jay Lewis, the young man known as Jay Lache, who is known for his powerful lache techniques, was already accustomed to the glare of the World Championship. He was one of 10 teens in 2019 to reach Stage 3. In the Young Adult class in 2020, he duplicated the feat, arriving at Edge of Dreams in the second-fastest time and finishing second in the World Championship.
The Team Send City member smashed Stage 2 in the quickest time with a chip on his shoulder, earning him the chance to be the final racer in Stage 3. Since there were no clears in front of Jay, all he had to do was get to Cheese Wedges in the quickest time, which meant he had to defeat his nemesis, the Edge of Dreams.
