'American Ninja Warrior': A Tuxedo Speedo Lucky Charm For Returning Contestant (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

"American Ninja Warrior" is back, and the Season 5 premiere (Sun., June 30 at 9 p.m. ET on G4) features a very familiar Speedo-clad contestant.

While the show will air on both (the soon-to-be Esquire Network) G4 and NBC, this particular contestant seems completely tailor-made for the Esquire brand -- I mean, his Speedo has a little tuxedo on it, as you can see in The Huffington Post's exclusive sneak peek above. Wearing that while getting through one of the newest obstacles, the Flying Nun Chucks? Now that's some suave stunting.

"This year for 'Ninja Warrior,' I'm spicing it up a little bit. So you still get the same feel, the same vibe, just a little more sexiness," 24-year-old stuntman Dan says before stripping down and receiving some amazing commentary about his new tattoos, the more vintage-style tuxedo Speedo and his "mad Ninja Warrior skills" from the show's new hosts.

Watch the exclusive clip above and tell us: Are you excited for more "American Ninja Warrior"? How do you think you'd fare on the world's toughest obstacle course?

"American Ninja Warrior" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on G4; and Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
