If you’re a fan of the UK incarnation of the Ninja Warrior franchise, then you will recognise Aussie Fred Dorrington.
He will take to the Aussie course this week on the show, but he made a big splash in Britain when he came in third place in the third series, after his foot slipped into the pool.
The announcement has left fans questioning if it’s fair he takes part in the competition with such extensive experience, especially considering many are already up in arms over the course favouring lean, tall men.
On Sunday night, viewers watched on as Andrea Hah become the first female up the wall.
But as no woman has ever won the show in any of the international comps, is there really any chance for her to become Australia’s first Ninja Warrior?
