Human cannonballs! Human pinballs! Crashes, smashes and hilarious mud splashes! Wipeout, hosted by Richard Hammond is an action-packed family entertainment show that sees contestants from all walks of life compete in the world’s largest extreme obstacle course designed to provide the most spills, face plants and wipeouts ever seen on television.
Assisting Richard from the sidelines is Amanda Byram, as 24 intrepid contestants – male and female, young and old, fit and not-so-fit – take on four new grueling and physically demanding – but wildly hilarious – obstacle courses to win the title of Wipeout Champion and the grand cash prize.
The contestants and the courses change every week, with over-the-top obstacles including the “Bouncy Balls” and “The Sweeper” – which will have contestants jumping hurdles on a 40-foot long treadmill at warp speed.
In the end, only one contestant can win in the final called the Zone, that includes a 45-foot slide, rolling barrels, a g-force packed spinning plate and trampoline platforms. Everyone else…will Wipeout!
