MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. – NBC’s newest show Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge debuted June 13. The obstacle course challenge pairs four people with an elite athlete, with some of those “athletes” being former competitors on America Ninja Warrior.
Seven episodes were ordered for the first season, with four Lowcountry residents making an appearance in one of the episodes (although they were absent from the first).
Stephen Siraco and Stephanie Keenan were first seeked out about the opportunity to be featured on a network show.
“I said, Stephen, I’m doing this. Do you want to it with me,” said Stephanie. “And he said of course so then our next challenge was to find a male and female.”
Enter Adam Von Ins and Elea Faucheron, another couple who consider themselves excellent athletes.
“I would say we were both probably really nervous, but we felt like we were ready,” said Faucheron. “Although we had no idea that we would be up against the most against the most amazing american ninja warrior athletes and some of spartans top athletes.”
