Tonight on ABC thier hilarious game show WIPEOUT is back with a 2 hour special and its seventh season premiere called, “Fall in the Family.” On tonight’s show the 7th season begins with a family edition, featuring 12 teams of two family members. Obstacles include: Big Balls Bonanza; the Shed Zone; and the Classic Sweeper.
For those who are new to the show, Wipeout is a game show series in which contestants compete in what is billed as the “world’s largest obstacle course”. Wipeout is hosted and commentated by John Henson and John Anderson, while Jill Wagner acts as the “on-location” presenter.
On tonight’s show first up on the battle royal of family vs. family, we have the all new qualifier round where our 12 teams will show off their suave snowboarding skills in “The Shed Zone,” where the slopes hit you. As our families continue on their quest for cash, they face the first ever family version of Big Balls Bonanza, where a member from each team will be chosen to compete in the challenge and the farthest jumper will win $5,000 for his or her team. The course continues to dish out discipline as the remaining teams move onto the granddaddy of obstacles, the Classic Sweeper. Only the remaining two teams will take a family trip to the all-new Wipeout Zone for a chance to win the grand prize and earn a spot in the first ever “Tournament of Champions” at the end of the summer.
