During Celebrity Ninja Warrior: Red Nose Day, Arrow’s Stephen Amell tackled the course and proved his superhero abilities aren’t the work of special effects. Not only did he manage to take on the salmon ladder, but he’s a joy to watch as well. Previously, Amell accepted the challenge to take part in WWE’s SummerSlam.
TVLine has shared the first teaser footage from Amell’s appearance on Celebrity Ninja Warrior: Red Nose Day. Naturally, Amell doesn’t seemed fazed by the famously difficult obstacle course. If anything, Amell makes it look easy, even playing to the crowd in between challenges. Through the course he is encouraged by Kacy Catanzaro, the first woman to qualify for the finals of American Ninja Warrior.
Joining Amell on the course is Erika Christensen, Derek Hough, Natalie Morales, Mena Suvari, Nikki Glaser, and Jeff Dye. In addition to Olympic gold medalist Ashton Eaton and former Yankees player Nick Swisher.
The Red Nose Day special will be hosted by Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick, and will feature celebrities contributing to comedic sketches and stunts while raising money for charity. To learn more about Red Nose Day visit www.nbc.com.
