In case you were wondering if Ryan is qualified to compete on American Ninja Warrior, check out some of these quick facts: He's a former NCAA football player who was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 1998, before an injury ended his professional career. Ryan has completed Ironmans, Go Pro's Ultimate Mountain Challenge and a Leadman Challenge, and oh yeah, he's the OG winner of The Bachelorette, and after getting married in a televised ceremony in 2003, Trista and Ryan are still together. If that doesn't prepare you for any challenge, we don't know what will. 

Ryan isn't the first celeb to take on the challenge, as Arrow star Stephen Amell crushed the course as part of NBC's Red Nose Day broadcast, even completing the Salmon Ladder.

Other celebs that were able to complete the course included Derek Hough, Olympic athlete Ashton Eaton, and baseball player Nick Swisher.

American Ninja Warrior airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
