Australian Ninja Warrior
When Ninja Warrior competition was finally came to his home country Australia, Fred used his experience on Ninja Warrior UK 3 to compete on Australian Ninja Warrior. In his heat (Heat 5), he finished in seventh place. In his semifinal (Semifinal 2), he finished in seventh place once again. During the grand final, he made all the way to Stage Two, before going out on the Unstable Bridge. Despite that, since he made the furthest and fastest than any other competitor during the grand final, he earned the title as the 'Last Man Standing' of the season.
Also during the grand final, Fred actually almost didn't advance to Stage Two. In Stage One, while he was on the Jump Hang, he got disqualified after his foot touched the water on the Big Dipper. However, during the review, it was revealed that his foot didn't touch the water (the ripple on the water was from the pushed safety mat). Therefore, he was allowed to continue his run, at the exactly point and exactly time he was in Jump Hang before being stopped (this is very different with other SASUKE/Ninja Warrior format, where competitors have to rerun the whole stage after protesting successfully, especially the stage with time limit.)

In his semifinal (Semifinal 3), he went out on the eighth obstacle (the Hourglass to Tramp to Bungee) and finished in third place. During the grand final, he made all the way to Stage Two, before going out on the Salmon Ladder.
