American Ninja Warrior returned for season 12 last week and the fans were SO ready for it. No one captures the moment-to-moment excitement of a new episode quite like Twitter, and all the #AmericanNinjaWarrior tweeters out there did not let us down! We’ve rounded up a few tweets that especially captured that premiere episode.

Don’t forget: American Ninja Warrior returns tonight, Monday, September 14 at 8pm EST/PST for the second night of the Qualifiers!

Basically, we all started crying the second the episode started.

We had feelings.

So many feelings...

This tweet, which is basically how we felt every day we showed up on set to film this sucker.

But in all seriousness...

This screenshot which hits us right in the guts. Pauline Avila was a star of the night.

She even got a shoutout from the mayor of Houston!

This “whoopsie” which also makes us chuckle. You can’t win ‘em all!

The buzzers were a flyin’!

Michael Johnson made a gif of his own run. That’s very meta of him.

Tonight (Monday, September 14), American Ninja Warrior drops the second night of Qualifiers and we already have baby JJ Woods out there. Twitter, don’t let us down!
