On last night's episode of Australian Ninja Warrior, we saw contestants battle it out for the grand final - but not before some were literally struck down by a supposed 'jinx' while host Rebecca Maddern commentated throughout their performance.

When contestant Zayne Wealthall took to the obstacle course, Rebecca said "He looks incredibly focussed Ben. He's not put a foot wrong" - and a couple of seconds later, Zayne slipped off the spinning log obstacle and fell into the water.

Host Ben Fordham couldn't hide his smirk, saying "It's the Rebecca Maddern jinx, and it strikes again".

It comes after earlier in the program, another contestant, Warwick Draperwas moving throughout the course when Rebecca said "This is a serious contender" before he too slipped and fell into the water. 

And just as one of the Parkour Twins Dylan Pawson took the course, Rebecca commented "Dylan, compose yourself for the spinning log please" - and like his two previous opponents, he too crashed out into the water. 

A curse or just unfortunate timing, all eyes will be peeled on Channel Nine tonight for the grand finale of Australian Ninja Warrior
