Electrical engineering undergraduate, Jonathan Alexis, sat down with producers of the NBC-TV show, American Ninja Warrior, recently after spending the day being filmed with classmates on campus and at different RIT spots such as The Tiger and Sentinel. Alexis, a Season 9 competitor and finalist, is part of a mid-season, team competition which is scheduled to air in February. The video, about his return to college and how the show impacted his life, will be shown during the programming to promote the competition and its participants. Alexis, who is nicknamed “The Giant” on the show, stands 6 feet, 6 inches tall. He returned to RIT this past fall to resume classes after a break while he competed in Seasons 7 and 9.
