TV show description:
In order to win the $50,000 grand prize on this reality show competition, contestants must survive the world’s largest obstacle course.

Each episode features 24 new players who are slowly whittled down to one winner through a series of four rounds. The first round or, “the qualifier,” features a four-part obstacle course in which the twelve participants with the best times move on further in the competition.

In “the sweeper,” or the second round, the remaining twelve must jump a rotating hurdle that changes speeds and heights each time it circles around. The six who fall from their platform first don’t make it to round three, known as the “road to the final four.”

Contestants in this round participate in a stunts like “Dizzy Dummy” where players are spun around and then stopped in order to cross an obstacle dangling over a pool, or the “Dreadmill” where the final six walk on an oversized treadmill and must stay on while trying to avoid balls, inflatable fish, and even doors obstructing their moving path.

“The Wipeout Zone” is the last and most complicated obstacle course to be conquered. The player to do so, in the least amount of time, wipes out the competition and walks away bruised but with the cash prize in hand.

The show is hosted by John Henson and John Anderson and, is co-hosted by Jill Wagner.

mat vitela, during every Wipeout episode, there are a few commercial breaks. In one of those breaks, there is a 15-second explanation on how to become a contestant. I haven’t paid attention to it, so all I know is that they said “log on to for more information”.

Hope this helps you get on the show!


mat vitela May 30, 2009 at 9:23 pm

Candie, this series is still on! ABC has renewed it for a 2nd season, a longer season that will start on May 27th at 8/7c. They have changed many of the obstacles, though, so I don’t know if the Sucker Punch is still around or not.


Candie March 24, 2009 at 3:57 pm

please bring this show back on there aren’t not many shows I can watch with my 4 year old, he loved this show calling it Sucker Punch show! PLEASE BRING BACK another great show that should of never been canceled…
