Australian Ninja Warrior wins the night for Nine Australian Ninja Warrior is proving to be a ratings winner for Nine, while House Rules on Seven also continues going strong.

Fans of American Ninja Warrior know that the winning competitors have almost preternatural athletic and endurance skills. They've all beat records and qualified for the Japanese competitive sports special Sasuke , but who are the best American Ninja Warrior winners? Help decide below!

But Monday, the obstacle course of the game American Ninja Warrior crowned his first winner. Isaac Caldiero completed the fourth and final stage of the course. The Caldierio candidate will leave with a check for one million dollars after climbing rope the last 20 meters faster than Geoff Britten.

It took six years for America to crown its first-ever Ninja Warrior.

On Monday night, Australians will find out if one of their own has finally conquered Mount Midoriyama after three gripping seasons.

Australian Ninja Warrior isn't alone in not having an overall winner. Both the French and Swedish versions of the show haven't found a contestant able to complete every obstacle. The original format, Japan's highly-successful Sasuke series, went through four seasons before a competitor achieved total victory (and 13 more before someone was able to follow in his footsteps).

But Australian Ninja Warrior contestant Zed Colback had a humiliating run when he unknowingly kept going after being disqualified. After attempting the Bar Hop, the 24-year-old rock climbing instructor swung onto the main mat but stumbled, landing on a side mat. Zac was instantly disqualified when his feet hit the side mat, but the Western Australian had no idea. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.

Who is the ideal candidate to be Australia's first ever Ninja Warrior? © Channel Nine Olivia Vivian says women are just as capable as men when it comes to the Ninja Warrior course. Olivia Vivian, a Perth-based cafe owner and former gymnast, is so far the only woman to make it into the Ninja Warrior grand final. This year marks her second shot at the top prize. She said the final course is incredibly hard, but not impossible.

"I think people forget I trained for fifteen years for gymnastics," she said. "But when it comes down to the course, we don't get to practice it. Our first run is our first run. There's no other chances."

So who has the best shot at becoming Australia's first-ever Ninja Warrior? So far, only two people have been able to complete American Ninja Warrior's final course: Geoff Britten and Isaac Caldiero. Both men are rock-climbers. In Japan, the first two winners were commercial fishermen. Both pastimes require above-average grip strength.

Has anyone ever won 'American Ninja Warrior '? Those two men, Geoff Britten and Isaac Caldiero, achieved that goal on season 7 of the show. While Britten was the first to complete the course, Caldiero beat his time by 3 seconds, crowning him the winner of ANW and the winner of the $ 1 million

"Rock climbing is a fantastic attribute," Vivian said. "If your mind is set on winning Ninja Warrior, you absolutely need that upper body strength and that grip strength. Mental training is another attribute that's going to come in handy. In my personal opinion, training your mind is a lot harder than training your biceps."

"It took me six months to train to get up the warped wall because I have such little chicken legs," she joked.

Clem Vertigan, a personal trainer at The Compound, has helped top-ranking Ninja Warrior contestants prepare for the show.  Like Vivian, he believes a contestant needs a wide range of skills to succeed.

"Rock climbing is handy because you've got the grip strength, but you need to learn how to swing your body," he said.

And that it ’ s an ongoing debate over who exactly is the first American Ninja Warrior .

"So ideally you're a rock climber with a gymnast background, or a gymnast with a rock climbing background. Carpenters seem to be pretty good because if they're swinging their hammers a lot they have pretty good grip strength. Some of our best ninjas have been carpenters.

"AFL footballers aren't too bad because they are reasonably lean but strong. A bit of cardio doesn't hurt. If you look at the guys who do well in Ninja Warrior, they tend to be between five-foot-six to about five-foot-ten. I don't think height's an issue – as long as you've got the power."

Vivian said she'll be back next year regardless of Monday night's outcome.

"I want to be the first female Ninja Warrior ever," she said. "That's where my mental game is. Australia, being only three years into this show, has done extremely well so far. I truly believe we're going to get someone up that rope."

The final episode of Australian Ninja Warrior's third season will air at 7.30pm on Nine on Monday, July 29.
