"Celebrity Ninja Warrior" is returning for Red Nose Day this May, with some big NBC stars suiting up to take on the obstacle course — including the very first run for one of the show's hosts.
Akbar Gbajabiamila won't just be hosting the show, he'll be joining dancer and actor Derek Hough, singer Ne-Yo, wrestler Nikki Bella, Olympic gold medalist Nastia Liukin and others to compete on the course for charity, with coaching help from elite ninjas.
"Celebrity Ninja Warrior for Red Nose Day" kicks off the fourth annual Red Nose Day on NBC May 24 at 8 p.m. ET. It'll be followed by a special edition of "Hollywood Game Night" with host Jane Lynch at 9 p.m. and "The Red Nose Day Special," hosted by Chris Hardwick, at 10 p.m.
U.S. & World
The day's top national and international news.
All three shows will celebrate Red Nose Day and promote donations throughout the night.
Red Nose Day raises money for children living in poverty across the United States and abroad, the end of a seven-week campaign. It's in its fourth year in the U.S. but launched in the U.K. 30 years ago, raising $1 billion worldwide since.
