American Ninja Warrior has finally found its ultimate warrior. 

Pro rock climber Isaac Caldiero was able to best the Area 51 and Psycho Chain obstacles in order to take home the big win on Monday night in the NBC hit's season seven finale, making him the first athlete to ever to win the grand prize. Seriously!

E! News caught up with Isaac after his groundbreaking win in Las Vegas, where he admitted he's "still in awe" over the $1 million dollar prize.

"I mean it's amazing to think about, like I've never made or lived off more than $10,000 a year," Isaac told Ken Baker of his serious pay-bump. "So to all of a I can't even imagine what it's going to be like...the future is unknown."

And according to Isaac, his girlfriend Laura Kisana, a fellow competitor, could be a future winner. While a female has yet to win the competition, Isaac said, "There's definitely some little Ninjettes out there, Laura including. She's one of the top female athletes and I think she has what it takes!"
