Normally, Gary Busey, Sean Hayes, Brett Favre and Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi would not be seen together in the same room, but incentivise them with a $100,000 prize for charity and they will don a shinobi shōzoku (ninja outfit) and perform silly ninja stunts. Add Nina Agdal (Adam Levine's Victoria's Secret ex) and 80's rapper, Vanilla Ice to the list of competitors and you have a contest.

The stealthy six will battle each other over a number of Ninja disciplines over a 13 week season with the worst performer getting cut every 3rd show leaving a head to head showdown finale for the last show. At the beginning of episode one, each competitor is given a ninja equipment kit and instruction manual and have 6 hours to familiarize themselves with the way of the ninja. They will then be put through their paces with the katana (sword) and nunchaku (nun-chuks).
