Series Summary
In this reality competition, contestants try to navigate an extreme obstacle course that has been designed to provoke an unprecedented number of crashes, face plants and wipeouts, with one competitor taking home a $50,000 prize each week. We're guessing you're not going to see this show among next year's crop of Humanitas Prize nominees. Hosts John Anderson and John Henson call the play-by-play while a sideline reporter interviews contestants on the course, as well as getting a word or two from the winner at the end of the show.

  • Wipeout does have a crackpot obstacle course and its own sometimes hilarious commentators, John Anderson from ESPN's SportsCenter and John Henson from Talk Soup. Show More

  • ABC hasn't provided much in advance to watch--smart network!--but there were some clips for Wipeout, and they were (seriously) hilarious. Show More

  • Even the contestants seemed to be trying too hard, screaming and making wisecracks for the camera, as if coaxed by the producers or, more likely, their agents. Show More
