The Semi-Finals of THE AMERICAN is the only lucrative professional rodeo with no entry limitations, whereby anyone can qualify regardless of age or gender. The field will likely include contestants from nearly 40 states, four Canadian provinces, Australia and Brazil. In the mix will be roughly 70 individual NFR qualifiers with more than a dozen PRCA world champions among them, as well as invited champions from the National High School Finals Rodeo, College National Finals Rodeo, Indian National Finals Rodeo, Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo and Canadian Finals Rodeo. "The American," says Randy Bernard, CEO of RFD-TV Events, "is building exposure and creating a platform for these tremendous top-ranked athletes, but at the same time, it's the surprising underdogs who seem to be capturing the hearts of rodeo fans."
