“Fun Facts in the Ninja News” all about Lindsay Eskildsen

Season 2 of the UNAA brought out a lot of awesome people.  Athletes; parents, friends; Ninjas; and so many other people.

One such individual is Lindsay, I met here in Dallas this year at the UNAA Finals.  Not only did she make it to Dallas, she made it to the night Finals Top 10 and did outstanding! On top of all that, she was a Las Vegas ANW finalist.  All of this and she is such a kind and sweet person.

For those that are very close to her, the following info will not surprise you.  But for those of us that are just getting to know here –  get ready to know a little more about her.

Do you follow any pro sports, if so which teams/sports?

I was a huge fan of the Sacramento Kings (NBA) growing up, but honestly don’t watch too much sports these days. I do however play fantasy football with my coworkers. Does that count?

What is your favorite color?

Hot Pink. Bubblegum Pink. Baby Pink. Barbie Pink. Oh ya and regular Pink. I can’t help it. I love pink because it makes me feel girly.

What are your favorite TV Shows?

American Ninja Warrior. That’s a given. Shark Tank. The Profit. Bachelor/Bachelorette. How It’s Made. New Girl. Just started binge watching Silicon Valley… It’s hilarious.

What are your favorite Movies?

Finding Nemo. Dead Pool. Mean Girls. Anchor Man. Ooh I love romantic comedies and documentaries are SUPER interesting to me!

Favorite hobby outside of physical activity?

There is life outside of physical activity?? I do love creating and doing anything artistic. Crafting, painting, sewing, DIY. I absolutely LOVE my job as a graphic/web designer, but wish I could quit my 9 – 5 and be a full time DIY’er.

What is your favorite Food?

I look forward to cheat days. Mexican and Italian are ALWAYS delicious. Oh and a juicy cheese burger with extra cheese please!

What three words best describe you? 

Athletic. Loyal. Artistic.

Best kept travel secret? 

Fold then roll up your clothes up before putting them in your suit case. You can fit significantly more this way, which is a huge plus if you are like me and extremely indecisive and feel like you need to pack your entire closet. =)

Where are you from?

I’m from Sacramento, CA but recently moved to Alabama to be with my boyfriend.

If you could choose one superpower, what would it be and why?

Life would be SO much easier if I had the ability to teleport. My job is in California, but I live in Alabama so I’m constantly traveling back and forth every month. I’d save a ton of money and time.

How long have you been doing Ninja?

About a year and a half now. I started training after I applied in Season 8 and did not get the call and went all in like a crazy lady for Season 9. 

Actor you feel you are most like and why?

People used to always tell me I looked like Kristin Kreuk from Smallville back in the day. We both have a similar mix in nationalities.
