Parts of the country are still covered in snow but ABC programmers have summer on their minds. They’ve just scheduled the returns of two reality series — Wipeout and True Beauty.
Wipeout, the show that puts contestants through a giant obstacle course in hopes of winning $50,000, is hosted by John Anderson, John Henson, and Jill Wagner. The third season will return on Tuesday, June 22nd. Themed episodes will include Ladies Night,” “Family Edition” and “Wipeout Blind Date.”
True Beauty is returning for its second round of episodes and will once again seek to find the contestant that’s got both inner and outer beauty. Executive produced by Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher, this season is judged by Vanessa Minnillo, Beth Ostrosky Stern, and Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy).
