A new game show starts here next Tuesday on Channel 9, Wipeout. The latest creation from Endemol USA (Big Brother etc). The show starts with 24 contestants who are quickly whittled down to 12 in the qualifying challenge. Some of you may remember a show around in the late 80’s called “It’s a knockout”, and of course you have seen the current “Gladitor” series on TV and possibly even “Friday Night Games” from Big Brother, well WIPEOUT is a sort of like those, only better.
Straight from the USA, only 2 episodes have aired so far (before we get it here in Australia). The 12 contestants who make it through the qualifing round continue on through additional water filled, mud pool, rubber balled, slippery and foam covered courses only to be cut in half again. The remaining 6 will battle it out in another spinning, running, falling, jumping, splashing timed course, until the final 4 are decided.
Bigger is better! In the final round, the contestants battle their way through a huge obstacle course, apparently “the biggest ever”. Whoever does it in the best time, wins $50,000 cash! Great prize. The show will air once per week and it great viewing for those who love seeing people getting pwned.
It should have been on Friday nights so you could get drunk with your friends and watch, I am sure it would be twice as funny.
This one is fun. WIPEOUT on Tuesday nights!
