Stephen Amell and several celebrities will tackle the grueling obstacle course of American Ninja Warrior, all in the name of charity. The segment will air as part of NBC’s annual Red Nose Day special which raises money and awareness to help children living in poverty in America and around the world.
Each celebrity will pair up with an elite ninja, who’ll serve as both coach and cheerleader. In Amell’s case, he’s been assigned the darling of the competition, Kacy Catanzaro. The other celebrity/ninja pairings are dancer Derek Hough (Daniel Gil), actress Erika Christensen (Flip Rodriguez), news anchor Natalie Morales (Grant McCartney), Olympian Ashton Eaton (Kevin Bull), comedian/TV host Nikki Glaser (Jessie Graff), former Yankees slugger Nick Swisher (Drew Drechsel), comedian Jeff Dye (Meagan Martin) and actress Mena Suvari (Natalie Duran).
Given that Stephen has effortlessly climbed the salmon ladder on Arrow, expectations are high that he’ll beast out on the first celebrity edition of American Ninja Warrior. Based on the preview, he won’t disappoint. He completes the first three obstacles with ease. Check out the clip below.
