On September 18, the 2016 Emmy awards took place. American Ninja Warrior was nominated for Best Reality Competition Program. It did not win.
But Ninja Warrior Jessie Graff walked the red carpet. She did some casual kicks. Cameras clicked. The Internet squealed with joy at their new hero.
This doesn’t even look real.
She’s doing that WEARING HEELS.

Did she... did she just do a back flip to twirl her dress instead of a spin?
Yes. Yes, she did. Even Sporty Spice freaked out. MELANIE C, PEOPLE.
While she was undeniably commanding a legion of female fans, the guys were in on it too.
A new standard of red carpet fierceness was born.
Look at Jessie standing there being like, “Standing? SO basic.”
Imagining she’s reaching out to hold our hands because we’re best friends...
Just stop what you’re doing and look at this one more time.
IT IS PERFECT.
Which leads us to only one final thought:
How does #AmericanNinjaWarrior NOT win an Emmy? *SMH*.. Best. Freakin'. Show. Ever.— JudyP (@judydp) September 19, 2016
