A show on ABC where people go through an obstacle course of physical challenges without falling off or wiping out. This has many elements of Japanese game shows such as Takeshi's Castle.

Players can win $50,000 if they can overcome the tough obstacle courses.

FormatEdit

During an episode, contestants compete through four rounds of competition until a final winner is chosen. The first round features 24 contestants, while only the top four (top three in season 4 and after) will make it to the final round called the Wipeout Zone, where the winner earns the title of Wipeout Champion and a $50,000 grand prize. In the seventh season, winners from each episode will be brought together for a "Tournament of Champions" at the end of the season to compete for the title of Ultimate Wipeout Champion.

The challenges change each week, but always feature offbeat and comical obstacles, such as the "Sucker Punch", "Big Balls" (the show's trademark obstacle), the "Sweeper", the "Dizzy Dummy" or the "Dreadmill", and the "Wipeout Zone". In one of the show's trademarks, the commentators have a humorous running commentary, often mocking and gently insulting the contestants as they compete. The hosts make frequent use of puns.

Jill Wagner (and, in Season 5, Vanessa Lachey and the return of Jill in Season 6) offers additional commentary and reactions, and also provides interviews with the contestants filmed before their turn begins.

Generally only those who will pass the first round are introduced, and a nickname is assigned that is used throughout the game. However, during the "Wipeout Zone", the show takes an epic and serious turn, with the humor dialed down, and serious background music instead of its lighthearted theme music.

The QualifierEdit

In the first round of the competition, 24 contestants run a four/five-part obstacle course, one at a time. If the contestant fails to pass a particular obstacle, they must swim or crawl through mud or water to the next obstacle. The 12 shortest times advance to the next round.

Although many of the obstacles vary between episodes, common obstacles have included the "Sucker Punch", a wall covered with mechanical boxing gloves above a mud pit (eliminated on season 4 and season 5), and the show's trademark obstacle, the "Big Balls", consisting of a set of four giant inflated red balls that a contestant must attempt to bounce across.

Round TwoEdit

In the second round, the twelve remaining contestants compete in a competitive challenge. These have included;

  • The Sweeper : The contestants start in a circle of elevated pedestals in order to dodge the titular Sweeper Arm (a rotating horizontal arm) by jumping over it. Players knocked off their pedestals are eliminated, and the 6 remaining contestants advance to the next round (however the game continues, as the last remaining person wins a bonus prize of $1,000). The speed of the arm is increased as the round progresses, and there may also be an additional handicap (such as wearing potato sacks, or being equipped with dodgeballs) or an attachment or modification to the arm itself (such as a rotating gyroscopic arm, spikes, etc.)
  • King of the Mountain A challenge with a similar setup to the Sweeper, but with a sweeping bridge that players must jump onto and cross to reach the circular platform in the center. Players who are knocked into the water have unlimited chances to make it to the "mountain", but the game ends once 6 players make it to the center who then advance to the next round. The number of bridges for the contestants to jump onto varied between episodes, with some episodes having one and some having two.
  • Overdrive : Similar to the Double Cross, contestants must enter the obstacle on a green start platform, cross through the middle to a red exit platform on the other side, and then cross one of three final obstacles (the Spinning Little Ball, Banana Hammock, or Unstable Table) to the finish. Four Sweeper arms, two pairs of Windshield Wipers on only one side of the obstacle, and usually foam or water jets seek to impede the contestants' progress. The sweeper arms can only be dodged by jumping over them. If a contestant wipes out or goes under a sweeper arm, he/she will have to start the whole thing over again. As with King of the Mountain, contestants have unlimited attempts to cross the obstacle, but only the first 6 to complete will advance. This rhyme explains the rule: "Enter on green, exit on red, don't let the sweeper bar (or arm) go over your head" (said by John A.); "Jump on green, exit red, don't let the sweeper bar (or arm) go over your head" (said by John H.).
  • Double Cross : A rig with 4 rotating platforms (three colored green, one colored red) and 4 Sweeper Arms rotating in the opposite direction. Contestants must make their way to the center of the obstacle via one of the three green arms, exit on the red arm, and then cross the Unstable Table (a platform that tilts periodically) in order to cross to the finish line. The center hub may also spray water to make the platforms more slippery or to distract contestants lurking at the center. If you wipe out, you'll have to start the whole thing over again. If you go under a sweeper arm, you're okay. As with King of the Mountain, contestants have unlimited attempts to cross the obstacle, but only the first 6 to complete will advance.
  • The Ski Lift (Winter Wipeout): Like a reversed version of the sweeper, twelve contestants start out on elevated platforms ten feet above the icy water. As this giant ski lift moves in a circular motion, they have to hang onto the handlebars as long as they can, lifting themselves over the frozen sweeper arms to avoid being knocked into the water. The sweeper arm will rise higher and higher as they go around. The last six contestants advance to the next round, but there are five more to wipe out, and the last one left will win $1,000.
  • Scare-ousel (Love Machine on Summer Episode 16), (Spring Wipeout and some Summer Wipeout Episodes): A carnival-themed carousel that has two stages contestants have to transverse: a red track and a yellow track. They will start on the red track, grab a red "dangler", travel over three hurdles to the red spot platform. If they wipeout, they have to start back at the beginning. Once they land on the red spot, they can hitch a ride on the yellow dangler to the finish platform. But if they wipe out here, they can remain on the yellow track to try again, while avoiding the sweeper arms in their way. In episode 5 of Spring Wipeout (The Most Dramatic Rose Ceremony Ever), three blue danglers were added for increased difficulty.
  • Total Carnage, (Summer Wipeout): Twelve contestants start out on a pedestal above the water. They have to make it over to the finish platform while navigating over the rotating crankshaft and between the spinning hoops without ducking.
  • The Illusionator, (Summer Wipeout): Twelve contestants start out on ten foot high pedestals above water. Three large spinning rings, lined up vertically, approach each contestant, they have to make their way through the rings (or ring) to stay on their platform, but if you hold on to a ring and go to another platform, you have to make your way back to the other platform, or else you "vanish", winner receives $1000.
  • Pain in the Ice, (Winter Wipeout season 5) Twelve contestants drop through a "ice" hole onto a sweeper with fish on top. Then they move to the lumber tumbler, A vertical spinning platform. Then they go to Frosty Foot Bridge, a shaking platform with a shaking bar, they must make it to the other side while water is pouring down on the contestants. Then they belly slide down the snow shoot onto the finish platform. Out of the twelve six will advance.
  • The Hangover, (Summer Wipeout season 5) The main objective is to hang on until you make it to the other side of the finish platform. First, contestants hang on to a trapeze to go through the orange swizzle sticks, then going through the long sweeper arm and finally going pass through the Brawl Wall, a spinning wall of big balls, and make it to the finish platform. The first six to make it to the finish platform will advance.
  • Scare-grounds, (Summer Wipeout season 5) Contestants will start on a spinning platform and attempting to grab a trapeze to land on the revolving planks without avoiding getting hit by the sweeper arms. Next they move on the second spinning platform but they have to watch out for the sign winder cause it spins too. If they avoid to get hit, they have to jump on to the slide and make to the finish platform. But the platform moves at any point when the contestants land at the finish. The first six to make it across will advance.
  • Octopushy, (Summer Wipeout) Competitors must jump onto one of two large spinning rings, and must make their way to the center (aka the "body" of the octopus), exit on the opposite ring, and jump on the finish platform, which moves at any point when the contestant land at the finish- all while avoiding four sweeper arms, the octopus's arms.

SEASON ONE

  • Sweeper (Normal)
  • Sack Sweeper- The contestants wore sacks and had to still jump over the sweeper, akin to a sack race.
  • Toothbrush- About six foam pool toys were added to the end of the sweeper, designed to confuse the contestants. (During this, Henson referred to them as the "SPIKES OF DOOM" only to be shut down by Anderson each time, one of which before Henson finished.)
  • Sweeper Dodgeball-Contestants were each given two dodgeballs and were meant to throw them at the other contestants while recovering or jumping over the sweeper. A similar concept was re-used in Wipeout Australia, however the contestants were armed with more than two.
  • The Hoop- A large ring was added at the end of the sweeper, which contestants had to jump through.
  • Crowbar- Multiple fake crows were added at the end of the sweeper, with smoke trailing behind them. During this round, one of the crows was knocked off.
  • Crusher- Two sweeper bars, one high up and one down low, came together closer and closer until the contestants had to jump very high and still get through the sweepers
  • Blue Sweeper-For the pilot episode, the Sweeper was modified slightly. The bar was recoloured to blue, would randomly change speeds and there was no $1000 bonus added to the end.
  • Triple Threat-This consisted of the Crusher from earlier on, along with a random burst of smoke and a mini foam ball.

Round ThreeEdit

The remaining contestants participate in a challenge that varies with each episode.

Season 1 variations included the "Dizzy Dummy"; a cycle of competitive rounds where players are strapped to a spinning cylinder for a short period, before racing across one of two sets of obstacles. The winning player in each round advances to the final round, while the remaining contestants "spin again" and then alternate to the other set of obstacles and a time-based challenge known as the "Dreadmill", which sees contestants run on a giant treadmill with the best 4 times advancing, either highest or lowest depending on the task, tasks include dodging a giant swinging wrecking ball and running to the end while lifting doors.

  • Episode Nine- Dreadmill Construction Area (Treadmill)

SUPERBOWL EPISODE

  • Episode One- Fieldgoal, Teeter Totters and Keg Jump (Dizzy Dummy)

Season 2 saw the return of the Dizzy Dummy but now the contestants need to squeeze through an obstacle at the top of a spinning disc before they could go on to the main obstacle. The "Slippery Course", is similarly formatted, but uses a water slide instead of spinning the contestants. The Dreadmill is replaced by "The Rocket" or "bucking bull" which has the contestants ride a mechanical bull dressed up to resemble a rocket. During this round, it was merely an endurance event. The top 4 times move onto the Wipeout Zone.

  • Episode One- Slick Slide, Branch in the Face, Bullseye Buoy, and Wet Wall (Slippery Course)
  • Episode Two- The Door, Tipsey Tables with Doors, and Barrel Jump (Dizzy Dummy)
  • Episode Three- The Rocket With Planets and Meteor Shower (The Rocket)

  • Episode Thirteen- Slick Slide, Branch in the Face, Mesh Mush Run, and Slippery Wall With Spinning Triangles
  • Episode Fourteen- Bungee Web, Topple Towers (Stacks), and Slippery Snakes

Season 3 uses the "Circular Challenge" a circular, individually run, time based obstacle which circles around a central podium. This course always has a theme such as "One-Ring Circus" (Clowns throw circus objects at the player from the central podium), "Pirate's Revenge" (Pirates throwing cannonballs from the middle), or "Medieval Wipeout" (Knights hurling tomatoes and lettuce from the podium). The top 4 times advance to the Wipeout Zone.

Another round called "Bruiseball" is used in some episodes which has the contestants have to cross 4 obstacles in the shape of a Baseball field. The round is played twice with the first 2 people to reach home-plate in each round advancing to the Wipeout Zone. Also in Season 3 is a challenge which sees contestants run on a spinner from season one's Wipeout Zone, while avoiding sweeper arms. If a contestant is knocked into the water, goes under the sweeper arm, or is knocked behind the red barrel-shaped objects, they would be eliminated. Costumed characters, called "lifeguards", in the middle of the spinner throw items at the contestants based on the theme of the week. Variations of items thrown at the contestants include baggage and boxes on "Unclaimed Baggage" (known for housing John Henson), beach items and wet towels on "Beach Party", stuffed animals, pillows and feathers on "Sleepytime". The round is played in four rounds with the last standing person on the spinner in each round moving on. In addition, there is a ring hanging in the air and whoever grabs the ring wins $1,000.

Season 4 (Winter Wipeout) The third round was called "The 7-Letter Word", which consists of seven platforms that spelled the word, WIPEOUT. The contestants will start at the "W" and the first one to the "T" wins. The letters "W" and "I" features sweeper arms, the "P" puddle to avoid, then bounce off the "E" diving board onto the spinning "O" and jump over the three hurdles on the "U" to get to the "T" platform. Contestants who have wiped out after reaching the "P", the "E", or the "U" may return to those points instead of starting the entire course over. However, only the best 3 times went on, rather than the usual four. In episode 4 (Baby It's Blob Outside), The 7-Letter Word featured a person in a polar bear costume scaring contestants on the "P".

In episode 5 (Hockey Pucks and Bieber Fever) the "7-Letter Word" was replaced by another obstacle course called the "Wipeout Ice Arena". For three rounds, contestants start out on the "Dizzy Dummy" a spinning contraption, then they move onto springboards that propel the contestants onto the "Spinning Slap Shot", a horizontal spinning platform trying to make it over the "Penalty Box", a vertically rotating platform. After that, contestants try to avoid being checked by the "Knee Sweeper", a rotating set of connecting bars aimed at their knees, then jumping and spinning their way to the finish platform. While crossing the course, contestants will try to advoid giant hockey pucks being thrown at them by two hockey players (one of them being John Henson) and a female skater.

Season 4 (Spring Wipeout) The third round was called the "Not So-O.K. Corral". There are three rounds that start on this western-themed obstacle course. First the contestants take a spin in the classic "Dizzy Dummy". Then they bounce off the diving boards trying to land on the rotating platforms crossing over to the "Crank Shaft". Next is the "Knee Sweeper", then the spinning platform and one final step to the finish platform. All this while advoiding faux horseshoes and moneybags being thrown at them when crossing the course.

In episode 2 (Ballsy Shows Off His Giblets) the background was a French cafe in which contestants were hit by pies.
In episode 3 (John Henson, Zombie Hunter) the background was a Roman coliseum called "Wipeout Colosseum", in which contestants were hit by tar (chocolate sauce), foam shields, and stuffed toy lions.
In episode 4 (The Wizard of Owws) the background was an Arabian Nights theme, complete with a desert sand, toy snakes, and an oasis. The contestants must run the course while avoiding Persian throw-pillows and plush cobras being thrown at them.
In episode 5 (The Most Dramatic Rose Ceremony) there was a new obstacle called "Super Tramp", where six contetants start out together on trampolines elevated 10ft above the water. They have to bounce over a rotating sweeper bar as it travels around, to avoid getting knocked into the cold water below. If they go under the bar, they're out. There will be three rounds and the last person standing at end of each round will move on. (The round was similar to the Season 3 spinner where contestants jump on trampolines avoiding a sweeper arm. The last one standing moves on to the wipeout zone.)
In episode 6 (Dirty Laundry) "Super Tramp" was renamed "Clean Sweep", which follows the same rules and format, except the 6 trampolines were replaced by 6 regular platforms.
In episode 7 (Engaged Couples) using episodes 1-4 obstacle, the background was a Wedding chapel theme. The couples must run the course while avoiding pieces of cake and frosting thrown by a couple dressed in each other's clothes (groom in a gown, bride in a tuxedo), and John Henson dressed as the priest.

Season 4 (Summer Wipeout) features the "Wipeout Playset" where each contestant starts off with a ride on the swing set where they have to hurl themselves to the spining plafrom in the center. Then they have to make it around the "sweeper stops" by riding the sweeper arm to the next stop and finally making it through the "chutes and splatters" by timing their slide (just like a second half of the point break in the spring Wipeout zone) to not get hit by the windwill on their way down to the finish platform, where winners of each 3 rounds move to the Wipeout zone.

In episode 3 (Let's Make A Wipeout) the "Dive Bar" was featured, contestants must stay on their own platform while jumping over a giant snorkel as it rotates around the platforms.
In episode 6 (All Stars) the obstacle "Jump the Shark" was featured. Six contestants begin on elevated platforms above the water as a giant Great White sweeper arm circles around. They need to jump the shark as the bar goes higher and higher without ducking underneath.
In episode 7 of Summer Wipeout (You're All Acting Like Babies!), the obstacle "Wipeout Sushi Bar" was featured. Six contestants start out on high platforms above the water. They must jump over the rotating salmon sushi roll sweeper bar to avoid getting knocked into the sake (water) below.
In episode 8 of Summer Wipeout (Boss and Employee), the obstacle "Wipeout 500" race track was featured. There are 2 heats: first contestants must make it past two yellow "street sweeps" (roatating sweeper arms), then they have to cross the rotating "spinner change" (spinning platform), then they have to motor down to the "spinning straightaways" (street platforms) en route to the checkered flag finish line platform all while being pegged by tires and checkered flags by the pit crew.
In Episode 10 of Summer Wipeout (Is That a Potato in Your Sack or Are You Just Happy to Wipeout?), the obstacle is called "Sweeper Sack" where contestants start out on platforms high above the water wearing potato sacks all while trying to avoid the rotating sweeper bar for three rounds.
In Episode 11 of Summer Wipeout (Ballsy's Playground), the obstacle "Detour" is featured where the Wipeout crew are dressed as an old retirement couple that took a detour to "Ballsy's National Forest" on their RV trip. It' exactly the same as Wipeout 500 only the crew throws pillows and sleeping bags at the contestants as they make their way through the course.
In Episode 12 of Summer Wipeout (Contestants Are Dropping Like Flies), the obstacle "Wipeout Playset" is featured. There are three rounds: contestants start off on a slide ride launching themselves on a spinning platform below. Then they have to make it across three rotating sweeper arms at different speeds to the spring board platform, jumping through the spinning foam blades of a windmill to get to the finish platform.

Season 4 (Summer Wipeout) continues with the Wipeout theme obstacles where each contestant starts off with a ride on the spinner where they have to get across an obstacle course filled with different types of rotating platforms on their way down to the finish platform, where winners of each 3 rounds move to the Wipeout zone.

In Episode 16 of Summer Wipeout (Blind Date 2.0: This Could Get Ugly), the obstacle "Wipeout Disco" is featured. There are three rounds: Couples start off by "staying alive" by jumping off spring boards into the rotating "brick house" platform. Then they got to be pass the "bouncer" (bouncing platform). Next they have to get into the club pass the rotating "crank shaft" while they beat around the "knee sweeper". Then boogie over to the "turn table" spinning platform to the finish line, all while the Wipeout dancers throw faux disco balls and sponge vinyl records at them.
This episode also featured another 3rd round obstacle called the "Singles Bar", where couples stand on platforms above the water. They have to jump over the raising sweeper bar as it tries to knock them back into the "sea of love". The last one standing wins the round but has to wait for their date to also win a round so they can go on to the Wipeout Zone.

Season 5 (Winter Wipeout) An obstacle called "The Cold Hearted Snake." Six contestants must cross the two snow sweepers. Then Climb up Plummet Summet and slide down the snakes back. Cross the shivering timbers and land on the snowball, which is a white Big Ball. Jump from the snowball onto the finish platform. The snowball rises up to make the finish easier. Out of the six contestants only three will advance to the Wipeout Zone.

Season 5 (Summer Wipeout) The third obstacle called "Petrified Forest." Six contestants must fly across to the next platform by using the zip line. Then they'll have to escape through the one tree forest without avoiding getting hit by the sweeper arms. Lastly, they have to jump into a tub full of foam and soap with attempting to jump to the finish platform. Out of the six contestants only three will advance to the Wipeout Zone.

Season 5 (Summer Wipeout) An obstacle called "Spin Psycho." Six contestants start on ten feet platform. First they have to grab the sweeper arm to make into the first spinner. Next they have to grab the sweeper arm again into the second spinner. Then finally they have to grab the sweeper arm again but this time they must let go at a perfect time to slide on to the finish platform. Out of the six contestants only three will advance to the Wipeout Zone.

Season 6 A course named "Wipeout's Greatest Hits," where the players must spin on the turntable, get on the trampoline drums, ride the Sweeper Arm Drumstick to a platform, cross the tilting keyboards, and jump through the swinging electric guitar with the diving board to the finish.

The Wipeout ZoneEdit

At night, and with a more serious tone than the previous rounds, the final four or three contestants play separately on a large obstacle course called the Wipeout Zone, each attempting to finish the course in the fastest time, much like the first round. Though slight variations are used in each episode, contestants wear wetsuits and they begin by either sliding down a water ramp or being launched by a giant catapult into the course, swimming to the first obstacle. Obstacles have varied between episodes, but the course contains several obstacles that must be traversed in order to reach the finishing platform. Some obstacles can be skipped for a time penalty, but the last obstacle(s) has to be completed in order to reach the finishing spot. The maximum time for any contestant in the Wipeout Zone is 20:00.00. In Season 4 (Winter, Spring, and Summer), the first contestant never reached the 20:00.00 mark. The player with the fastest time on the course is declared the "champion" of the episode and is awarded the show's grand prize of $50,000.
