A Greece man is competing to be the next American Ninja Warrior. Tonight you can see Carl Fantauzzo Jr. in one of the qualifying rounds.

He has been training for the obstacle course in his basement. If he gets one of the fastest times in the qualifying round, he will go to the national finals in Las Vegas. That's where he will face an even longer course modeled after Japan’s version of the show. No American has ever completed it.

The winner will receive $500,000.

You can see Fantauzzo tonight starting at 9 p.m. on News10NBC.
