It's been nearly a month and a half since episodes of NBC's American Ninja Warrior were filmed on the plaza at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, and we'll finally get to see how Minnesotans fared. 

The show airs at 7 p.m. Monday on NBC, and it'll feature 10 people from Minnesota, according to KARE 11. 

No one outside of the competitors themselves and the fans who were there watching know what happened, so Monday's episode could be full of surprises. Well, we do know one result already, thanks to American Ninja Warrior releasing a video of Eric Middleton, a 26-year-old from St. Paul who eats bugs. 

Middleton was the first competitor to complete the course, and because he did the hosts of the show had to eat a cooked tarantula. 

This is the first of two episodes from the U.S. Bank Stadium course that will air on NBC. The second is expected to be televised in August.
