Kofron, a firefighter, competed on the reality show last summer, as well.

You may remember his story – Kofron saved his parents’ Ventura home during the Thomas Fire and ran into their neighbor’s house with just a half-gallon of orange juice to help prevent it from also going up in flames.

Thomas Kofron competes during the 2018 season of “American Ninja Warrior.”
