About Wipeout


Wipeout is a game-show series that premiered on June 24, 2008 on ABC. Each week, 24 contestants (32 in Episode 9, which was actually the pilot show) go head to head through the world's largest obstacle course to win the title of Wipeout Champion and a $50,000 grand prize. The challenges change each week; common obstacles include the "Sucker Punch" and "Big Balls" (the show's trademark obstacles), the "Sweeper", the "Dizzy Dummy" (which alternates with the "Dreadmill"), and the "Wipeout Zone". The concept of the show has been compared to many Japanese game shows including Sasuke and Takeshi's Castle which had become increasingly popular through YouTube clips. Wipeout creator and executive producer Matt Kunitz, who also executive produced NBC's Fear Factor, states Wipeout is "90 percent Fear Factor- inspired, 10 percent Japanese game show." Wipeout will return for a seventh season on ABC and will feature a Tournament of Champions.
