Reactions To The ‘Australian Ninja Warrior’ Finale Were A Roller Coaster Of Emotions
Well, that was disappointing.
This is the sentiment being felt around the nation rn after weeks of trials, courses, rounds and glimpses of teeny tiny shorts, the first Australian Ninja Warrior is… no one. No one won. Oh good.
What a bloody letdown. The internet has many feels.
#NinjaWarriorAU is giving me all the emotions tonight.

Tbh, the competitors we’ve grown so fond of were all set up for failure. That course was ridick. From the ‘crazy cliffhanger’, the ‘flying bar’ and on to ‘Mt Midoriyama’ – which has NEVER been successful climbed in the first season of any of the international seasons.
Those time restraints were just not possible for a human being to reach. Twitter users went through a roller coaster of emotions realising the probable result would be that no winner would be named. Boo!
Here’s how Twitter came to terms with the grand finale:
From the get-go things didn’t look good.

When Fred was almost disqualified, every one cried MUTINY.
The twitters have spoken – kicked padding. Not disqualified! #NinjaWarriorAU

I reckon the mat splashed the water, not his foot. Unlucky. #NinjaWarriorAU

But so many contenders got in the grand finale.
Surely we were in for a shot to find a winner?!

9 contestants are through to stage 2 of the grand finale, wow! #NinjaWarriorAU

But alas stage two was IMPOSSIBLE.
Like no way anyone could make that course in 65 seconds. Producers, you trippin’.
Stage 2 looks insane, surely there isn't a stage 3? #NinjaWarriorAU

Five obstacles in under 65 seconds? No wonder hardly anyone ever finishes the bloody thing. ????#NinjaWarriorAU

SIXTY-FIVE SECONDS? SIXTY. FIVE. SECONDS?!!!! I can't even walk to the fridge in sixty-five seconds. #NinjaWarriorAU

Srsly, 65 seconds?!

Even the best player, the ‘ginger ninja’ aka Australia’s answer to Richard Simmons, didn’t have a chance – the course is too damn difficult.
Perhaps this stage too hard? Would be good to get a few at least through. #NinjaWarriorAU

That's so shit! 1 of those rock climbers for sure would of make it through easy if the time frame was the same as the 1st! #NinjaWarriorAU

Once the news set in, everyone was left feeling pretty letdown by it all. Wherez the Aussie Ninja at, Channel 9?!
Are we supposed to live our lives knowing there's going to be no Australian Ninja Warrior? #NinjaWarriorAU
— mitchell (@mitchastie) July 25, 2017
Ummmmmmm. So no one wins? Anti-climax much? #NinjaWarriorAU

With no one reaching Mt Midoriyama, I guess Fred won? Yep. We’ll go with that. Yay Fred!

Oh well done Fred. You failed least. #NinjaWarriorAU

Looks like we’ll be waiting for Australian Ninja Warrior season two to find our sweet redemption.
