Australian Ninja Warrior is the biggest thing in TV right now. It's a ratings juggernaught, but they may have turned a lot of viewers off in the latest episode.

Deaf man, Paul Cashion was competing on the show to inspire other people with disabilities -  "I want all deaf people and all people with impairments to see me tonight and think that they can be on the show too."

Unfortunately it didn't take him long to be disqualified, with his foot hitting the water on the first obstacle, but the real heartbreak came when it wasn't until his son signed to him from the ground that he was out of the competition, due to not hearing the buzzer.
