Australian Ninja Warrior returns to Nine at the end of the month with new hosts and the toughest course ever constructed.
Tennis champ Jim Courier hosts alongside Nine’s Leila McKinnon with KIIS FM hosts and Celebrity Apprentice participants Will and Woody as sideline commentators.
This season hungry young Ninjas will compete head to head with Ninja ‘Legends’ on the same course in the race for a $100,000 prize.
This series will also see ten Australian celebrities tackle the course for charity. Sport stars, actors and TV presenters will battle it out to win $10,000 for their chosen charity.
This year for the very first time, athletes aged 16 and 17 have been allowed to enter the competition as we welcome the Attack of the Teens. These fresh-faced rookies – who have watched Ninja all their lives – are light, fast and fearless and finally get to take on their heroes and live out their dreams of attempting the daunting Mt Midoriyama.
Our teens will face off with a battle-hardened field of fan favourites, including last year’s furthest fastest Ninja, Zak Stolz, alongside Ashlin Herbert, Ben Polson, Olivia Vivian and Fred Dorrington.
The intensity doubles in the semi-finals where, in a world first, Ninjas will race side-by-side in a sudden-death showdown. The winners of the showdowns get a ticket straight to the Grand Final, while the losers are knocked out of the competition.
2022 also sees the introduction of a raft of demanding new obstacles, including the terrifying Power Pool which replaces the Power Tower. Competing on the Power Pool course, the four “furthest fastest” Ninjas each night of the heats will go head-to-head on obstacles high above the water with a five-metre drop – the largest drop in Australian Ninja Warrior history. The winner of the Power Pool course that night earns the right to choose who he or she will be competing against in the semi-final.
Then the excitement amps up to 11 in the Grand Final, with Ninjas in dual lanes striving to go one step closer to the almighty Mt Midoriyama, which this year features a 20-metre rope climb to reach the summit.
The competitor who goes furthest on the Grand Final course in the fastest time will be declared the Season 6 winner and take home $100,000. However, conquering Mt Midoriyama in the fastest time will earn the winner an additional $100,000, for total prizemoney of $200,000 and the official title of Australia’s Ninja Warrior.
