Hello everybody. Today I am going to do a review about a T.V. show called “WIPEOUT”.
Top 3 reasons you should watch “WIPEOUT”:
1) It makes you laugh.
2) It’s fun to see the odd ways the contestants’ bodies can twist and bend when they get tossed around.
3) It’s my family’s favorite show.
“WIPEOUT” is usually on T.V. on Thursday night. The two hosts are John Anderson and John Henson. The show starts out with the contestants getting a short interview with a girl named Jill Wagner. Then, they go through a bunch of crazy obstacles. Some smack them, others spin them. Then, there are these 4 giant red balls that the contestants have to jump across to get to the other side – few make it all the way.
Wait a minute, you are probably wondering what kind of person would go on T.V. just to get bruises and head concussions? Well, whoever wins gets a grand prize of $50,000. (My dad always jokes about that and says that they’ll need way more than that after the show to pay for their medical bills.)
Anyway, in order to win you have to pass through all the obstacle courses with the lowest time. They time the people as they go through the course and they keep narrowing it down until they have the 3 people with the shortest time. After they have the 3 people, it’s time to go to the Wipeout Zone. The 3 remaining contestants battle for the $50,000. Whoever gets across with the shortest time wins. My family always likes to guess who will win.
I think “WIPEOUT” is a great show to get together with friends and family and watch people WIPEOUT! If you have never seen WIPEOUT you can get an idea of what it is all about in the trailer below.
