Posted on

The first season of Ninja Warrior Australia wrapped up last night and, to the surprise of many, no winner was actually crowned.

Put your hands together for Fred Dorrington, who made it the furthest, fastest in our first season of… https://t.co/dzr1xcKXSq

Fred Dorrington, who was disqualified and later requalified earlier in the show, ended with the fastest time.

However, the 65-second time limit proved too much for the competitors, and the show abruptly ended, leaving viewers confused over what had just happened.

So there's no winner ?? #NinjaWarrior what the ??

#NinjaWarriorAU so glad I let the kids stay up to 9.30pm on a school night to watch NOBODY win

So I've watched this for weeks and there's no winner? WTF #NinjaWarriorAU

2 HOURS. 2 HOURS JUST FOR EVERYONE TO FAIL?! #NinjaWarriorAU

Though some were aware of how Ninja Warrior works, and that just because people compete, it doesn't guarantee a winner.

I can't understand why people are surprised no-one completed the course. It took 6 or 7 seasons in the American version #NinjaWarriorAU

everyone complaining there wasn't a winner in aust ninja warrior have clearly never seen the original version with 5 winners in 33 seasons

It took 7 seasons in the US for a ninja warrior to be crowned. I thought the Aussies were exceptional! Bring on season 2 #NinjaWarriorAU

Ninja Warrior works differently to a lot of other competitive shows. You see, there's no guarantee of a winner... ever.

The finals process is simple: You must complete the three stages of the course in time and if you're successful, you tackle the monstrous climb of Mount Midoriyama. If no one beats the clock and the course, no one wins. Period.

So I guess all we can really do is hope for a more successful second season.

#NinjaWarriorAU meanwhile at Mt. Midoriyama...
