The teen Ninjas will face-off against fan favourites Zak Stolz, Fred Dorrington, Ashlin Herbert, Ben Polson and Olivia Vivian, among others, as they compete on the show’s famous over-sized obstacle course.

Leila McKinnon will co-host the 2022 season with tennis champion Jim Courier.

They are joined by radio hosts Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw, of the Will and Woody drive show on KIIS FM, who will act as sideline commentators. 

Contestants who make it through the bone-crushing course will face a knock-out competition in the semi-finals in a series of one-on-one showdowns – another first for the series.
