Brain Burkhardt may not have passed the "American Ninja Warrior" obstacle course Monday night, but his undeniable charm and physical prowess did not pass go unnoticed.

The Texas Tech Law student's adorable submission video (which you can watch over and over...and over above) highlights his strength, intelligence and extreme cutey-pie-ness, leading many local ladies to make 'I'd let him cross-examine me' jokes.

Despite his loss, Burkhardt will be returning in a couple of weeks for city finals, so there will be ample opportunity to set your DVR so you can keep him forever.

"American Ninja Warrior" airs on Esquire Network. You can check what channel that is on your local television provider at their official website.

Best of luck to you Brian, you make Lubbock proud, and, um, other things.
