Oklahoma City photos offer a sneak peek of the Oklahoma City athletes & obstacles

Get ready for Oklahoma City action tonight on NBC at 8pm EST.

The wait has been longer than expected (thank you, Stanley Cup play-offs!), but we are finally within hours of witnessing Barclay Stockett, Daniel Gil, Karsten Williams, and all the OKC Ninjas take on the qualifying course! The weather took us for a roller coaster ride during filming. Will the Ninjas also take us for a wild ride as we watch it all unfold on the air tonight?

How about a few photos to help us get through the last few hours of wait time? We won’t hit you with any Warped Wall spoilers. However, the photos might help you deduce whether certain Ninjas make it past that sneaky first obstacle, The Shrinking Steps. So...proceed at your own risk!

At first glance, this looks like The Shrinking Steps, but on second glance, it’s definitely not. Are we getting a glimpse at a new balance obstacle?

There they are —The Shrinking Steps! They’re definitely tricky, but they wouldn’t take out a skilled Ninja like Eric Middleton, would they?? We hope not – we want to see whatever crazy creature The Dung Beetle Ninja has for Matt & Akbar if he hits that buzzer!

Right before the OKC filming, we learned how Barclay prepared for this season. Will her preparations pay off?

Check out the swing these Ninjas build up – those Fly Wheels are intense!
