On NBC, Dr. Desiree Walker makes her second appearance on American Ninja Warrior.
The Lumberton, North Carolina dentist made her national-television debut on American Ninja Warrior, NBC’s extreme-obstacle challenge, which aired in June of 2014. She was invited back to compete in the seventh season (which filmed May 10 and 11 at Universal Studios in Orlando), and Dr. Walker joked in an interview recently with thedailyfloss.com, “I’m seeking revenge on the course.”
The lifelong fitness enthusiast demonstrates that in her audition video, which she shares with loyal Flossers.
