Don’t get too excited. It was a male Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. That said, the 5-foot-6, 155-pound Kevin Klein demolished the strenuous obstacle course during “American Ninja Warrior,” which aired on NBC Monday, with the fastest time of the night.

Klein comes well prepared. “I face pressure every game day, running out of a tunnel with a flag that’s on fire in front of 100,000 people,” he said during the show. “I think that pressure has prepared me for ninja warrior.”

Klein finished in 1 minute 33.42 seconds and will move on to the next round. In 2012, Klein made it to the Mt. Midoriyama finals, reports.
