The sixth season of ABC’s hit game show, “Wipeout,” will include its 100th episode milestone. The series will celebrate that feat all season long, as 24 adventurous players of all shapes and sizes compete in the world’s largest extreme obstacle course designed to showcase the best body flips, biggest splashes and amazing wipeouts that the entire family can enjoy. Jill Wagner (MTV’s “Teen Wolf”) returns to her role as co-host, alongside hosts John Anderson (ESPN’s “SportsCenter”) and John Henson (E! Entertainment’s “Talk Soup”).
“Wipeout” won the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Reality Show for the second year in a row.
In the new season viewers can expect all-new courses with bigger and better obstacles than ever before. The ever popular Big Balls are back, and the challenging Qualifier will include lots of twists and surprises for contestants vying to earn a spot in the completely redesigned Wipeout Zones, as they each do their best to bring home the $50,000 grand prize. The season will also have a number of themed episodes, including “Family,” “Hotties VS Nerds 3.0,” “Newlyweds,” “Dirty Jobs,” “Boss & Employee,” “Blind Date,” “Beauty Queens,” Brains VS Brawn” and “Exes.”
Each week in “Wipeout,” 24 energetic new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes go head to head through four rounds of demanding but hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of “Wipeout Champion” and the $50,000 grand prize. In the end, only one contestant will be victorious, while everyone else will Wipeout!
“Wipeout” executive producers are Matt Kunitz (“101 Ways to Leave a Game Show,” “Fear Factor”) and Scott Larsen. Kevin Wehrenberg, Trice Barto and J. Rupert Thompson are co-executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA.
