The American Ninja Warrior obstacle course has bested athletes far more experienced than Mark-Paul Gosselaar, so the Saved by the Bell star shouldn’t take his failed attempt too hard. 

“There’s only one way up this wall. Thank you [American Ninja Warrior] for letting me feel badass,” the actor wrote on Instagram. “And then there was the EPIC FAIL!!!”

See Gosselaar make it to the top of the sloped wall before taking a splash. 


And then there was the EPIC FAIL!!! #americaninjawarrior #theymakeitlookeasyontv #iwantasecondchance @ninjawarrior @onnit

Elsewhere, another ’90s TV veteran David Charvet (Baywatch) also posted imagery of him beating that infamous wall. “Running the [American Ninja Warrior] course was an incredible moment.”

The bottom line: Not everyone is built to be an American Ninja Warrior.
