Jump to Comments


There is going to be an American Ninja Warrior celebrity edition!

According to TVLine, the first-ever celebrity edition of the grueling warrior challenge reality show will air next month as part of NBC’s Red Nose Day programming, which aims to raise money to help children living in poverty around the world.

So who can we expect to see facing the giant climbing wall? A few athletic stars, of course!

Arrow’s Stephen Amell is one of the actors who is on board for the episode. Considering The CW star is no stranger to stunt work, we’re betting he will excel at any Ninja Warrior challenge.

He better keep an eye out for any flying obstacles, however, because even an superhero could get knocked down by one and be eliminated!

Another actor ready to battle for the Ninja Warrior title is Parenthood alum Erika Christensen, who, along with Amell and other celebs, will be taking part in the episode to raise money for charity.

TVLine reports that each star will be paired with an “Elite ninja” as they make their way through a a potential of six obstacles, including the “floating steps.”

The rest of the celebrity contestants include Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough, Today co-host Natalie Morales, Olympian Ashton Eaton, actress Mena Suvari, former Yankees player Nick Swisher, and comedian Jeff Dye.

Sounds like a great reason to compete and for us to tune in, right? Now which star do you think will do the best?

American Ninja Warrior: Celebrity Edition airs on May 25, 2017 on NBC at 8 p.m.
