Posted by American Ninja Warrior Nation on Thursday, May 18, 2017

Stephen Amell, star of the CW show “Arrow” has been eyeing the American Ninja Warrior course for years. He’d expressed his interest publicly and the fans had demanded that it happen.

Dreams came true when it was announced Stephen would join Celebrity Ninja Warrior, a special for Red Nose Day, which is a huge day of fundraising for children in need around the world.

Now, we get to see some of the action in the above teaser clip!

Stephen worked with American Ninja Warrior star Kacy Catanzaro to get ready for his run.

He handled the Floating Steps with ease.

Before the second obstacle, where he’d need to endure a hard drop, Kacy gave him some strategy advice.

It worked! Again, Stephen had no trouble getting through it.

He then moved on to the Fly Wheels, a daunting obstacle in regular competition.

Look at that little grin of confidence after he bests it.

But now he would face a balance obstacle. These types of obstacles are often dreaded by Ninja Warriors.

After taking a deep breath, Stephen started his run across the blocks.

The video ends there, so we’ll have to wait until Red Nose Day to find out the conclusion. Luckily, that’s not far away!

Watch Celebrity Ninja Warrior on Red Nose Day, May 25, at 8 pm on NBC!
