Check out these preview pics from Celebrity Ninja Warrior

We’ll find out how far they make it on the course on May 24.

The 2018 Red Nose Day kicks off at 8 pm EST on May 24 on NBC! Celebrity Ninja Warrior returns for its second year to start out the three-hour block of programming. We just spotted some pictures from the episode and this is going to be So. Much. Fun.

The celebrities take on the course along with an American Ninja Warrior coach. For every obstacle they complete, money is raised for Red Nose Day, which helps children here in the US and around the globe.

Check out WWE wrestler Nikki Bella playing around with Grant McCartney.
