Wipeout: Stupid or brilliant?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 28th 2009 3:38PM
WipeoutLast night was the season premiere of ABC's crazy game show Wipeout. I have to admit that it's one of my guilty pleasures. I ignored the show on its first run but started to watch repeats on Sunday afternoons and grew to like the show. The play-by-play is often annoying and I don't know why the contestants have to be so trash-talking and cocky, but it's fun. The new season has new obstacles for people to get through to the $50,000, and I think co-host Jill looks a bit different (though still hot!). What's your take on this show?

I absolutely LUV this show. It's the best medicine around; extreme laughter on steroids. And the Emcee's are hilarious, too. I am so glad it's back.

If they opened a Wipeout Amusement Park somewhere my kids would be the first in line.

I might be willing to humilliate myself on TV playing the game but 50k wouldn't be near enough to cover my medical expenses afterward.

Yes, it's stupid and yes, yes, yes, I love it. The way I see it, none of the contestants are forced to do this. They all volunteered. Why shouldn't I get to laugh when they tumble.

Most nights, I watch with a bit of envy thinking, "Man! I'd love to try that even if there wasn't a $50,000 prize."
