ABOUT TV SHOW
Die-hard athletes meet their match in this action-packed obstacle course competition series featuring the most fit, most agile, and most ripped participants who are all vying for the supreme title of Russian Ninja Warrior!
Original show — Sasuke (サスケ; stylized in Japan as SASUKE) is a Japanese sports entertainment television special, airing since 1997, in which 100 competitors attempt to complete a four-stage obstacle course. An edited version, named Ninja Warrior, is screened in at least 18 other countries.
CTC's version of the show pushed more than 200 participants from all over Russia who passed a large-scale casting procedure to fight for the title of the strongest hero of the project. Among the brave men were the European champion in gymnastics, Mikhail Khudchenko and sports blogger Alex Stolyarov, and representatives of very different areas and professions: a mother on maternity leave, a massage therapist, an accountant, a dentist, a programmer, a secretary, a fireman, and other heroes.
Three popular Russian celebrities — Morgenstern, Ida Galich, and Vasily Artemiev became hosts of the show. For the famous rapper and showman Morgenstern, the new show was his debut as a TV presenter, and for the renowned blogger and presenter Ida Galich — the first sports-extreme project.
