Former The Bachelorette contestant Ryan Sutter figured if he could win a wife on tv, he should be able to finish some silly little ninja course on tv. So he and his tv wife Trista loaded up the family and headed down to Denver to take on the qualifier course for American Ninja Warrior.
The Sutter's are probably the most popular couple from The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise. They met on the first season of The Bachelorette with Ryan vying for Trista's rose and have been together ever since.
Now that they have kids they don't appear on camera quite as much. Trista said, "Now we live a relatively quiet life here in the Rocky Mountains and life is really about us and our family and our kids."
Ryan is a firefighter in Vail, Colorado and he said he entered the competition because "I think the kids are really excited that I'm competing..."American Ninja Warrior" is fun for all ages, and we watch it together." So with his whole family watching, he took on the course.
Ryan made it passed the first two obstacles but when he tried to jump off the trampoline of the third obstacle his knees buckled. Ryan ended up in the water.
But he didn't let it dampen his spirit too much because he quickly jumped out of the freezing water and and gave Trista a giant wet hug.
