LINTON, Ind. -

Since the Emmys are on TV tonight, you'll see "American Ninja Warrior" next Monday night.

That's a show watched by 6 million viewers, including Indiana teacher Cory Beeson.

He's such a big fan, Beeson wants to be on the show. When he isn't in the gym, Beeson teaches social studies.

He tried to hide his plans from his students, but word spreads fast.

"First day of school, I'm giving a tour. A girl raises her hand and I say, 'Yeah, what do you need?' She says, 'I hear you want to be a ninja'," recalled Beeson.

Beeson plans to send in his audition video soon to try and make it on the show. This will be his third attempt, but he has high hopes. If he does make it, you can watch him next season on WTHR Channel 13.
