"Parental guidance is suggested. Unless your parent suggests you run the Wipeout course together, in which case you should contact authorities immediately," says host John Henson. Pairs of family members play together on the world's largest obstacle course for some real family bonding. It's all relative, as teams first encounter the Double Bubble Trouble before they try to fight gravity in the Space-themed Double Barrel. Only six sets of family members will battle it out on Total Carnage, and even fewer will take a swing on the Wipeout Playset. From there, only two duos with the strongest family ties and fastest time will go head-to-head in the Wipeout Zone for a cool $50,000 prize to share.

"My avatar is so real you can feel it.. until it hurts," says host John Henson. Twenty four contestants will want to make their way through the qualifier with an extra pep in their step, since the player with the fastest time will be awarded an added bonus $25,000 cash prize from Activision. Players will first meet the Wipeout Video Game Spinner before taking tumbles off the classic Big Balls. Contestants then get jiggled on the Jiggilator, where we've added an overzealous helping hand to assist them with their balance.. or lack thereof. From there, it's surf's up - or rather down -- as competitors try to catch a wave on the Double Barrel Surfing Safari, making for headlong Wipeouts.
|31||76||Blind Date 2.0: This Could Get Ugly||2011-09-15||60||
"Wipeout brings new meaning to the phrase 'love hurts,'" says host John Henson. Twelve couples will meet for the first time for a chance to win double the usual prize money and take home a $100,000 jackpot, giving them all the reasons why they should make this their best blind date ever on an obstacle course built for making love connections. Love conquers all, but couples will first have to conquer the qualifier, as they take a wild ride on the Love Train, followed by heavy flirting with disaster on the billowing Big Balls. The love matches will then take a lovers' leap over to the romantic Wipeout Italian Kitchen, where the face-plant parmigiana and flattening cannolis are guaranteed to dish out affection. Only the most perfect couples will move on to the Wipeout Zone, where they will fall hard, in the name of love, but only one duo will be crowned champions.
