Last night Matt Iseman was crowned the winner of this season’s Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold Schwarzenegger. We all know and adore him as the host of American Ninja Warrior, but his dedication to raising money for the Arthritis Foundation earned him a legion of new fans.
In the final boardroom elimination of Celebrity Apprentice, Arnold calls Matt an “underdog.” This perfectly encapsulates the attitude that makes him such a delight to watch on Ninja Warrior. Matt celebrates with everyone. He feels for them when they fall. He truly understands that anything is possible with enough work and grit.
Here are just a few the Matt-moments that show off his endless energy and personality.
Playing with kids who have Rheumatoid Arthritis, which Matt himself also has.

Repeatedly saying “American Ninja Warrior” in the way that only Matt can pull off.
Lovingly harassing fellow host, Akbar Gbajabiamila.
