She can't do it fast but she can do it.

Oh, and she's dating another contestant. A male one. In case anyone asks.

The fact that we even know who she is and what she looks like should disqualify her as ninja material.

I once put the word ‘Ninjas’ into an Online Thesaurus and it told me that ‘Ninjas Cannot Be Found’.

Well played, Online Thesaurus. Very well played.

I think the last 2 actual ninja’s are very old men in Japan who decided to not pass on their skills and knowledge

Kacy did a great job! I love that she stuck with it, instead of giving up. Very inspirational!

I think that the skills still relevant to modern scenarios still exist, in the Japanese military. And also in the US military, British SAS, and other places.

History? She made 'history' by being on some stupid TV reality show? Give me a break!

I think what’s most impressive is that she is only 5 feet tall!

It’s not like she’s some sort of freakish female giant.

She’s really cute, does incredible physical feats with a smile and you could bounce a quarter off of her tight little butt. What’s not to like?!?!?!

She is something else. Personally, though, even though she’s only 5’ tall she’s probably way too much for me. I’d be afraid she might accidentally castrate me.

Just saying.

No, she’s a petite, feminine little dynamo. She jumped that 5-foot distance between the vertical poles like Cirque de Soleil!
