Wipeout is a game-show series that premiered on June 24, 2008 on ABC. Each week, 24 contestants go head to head through the world's largest obstacle course to win the title of Wipeout Champion and a $50,000 grand prize. The contestants and the course change each week, with stunts like "Big Balls", "Dizzy Dummy", "The Spinner", and "The Dreadmill" - a 50 foot long treadmill with obstacles flying at the contestants. The concept of the show was based from many Japanese game shows including Sasuke and Takeshi's Castle (the former of which was adapted into Ninja Warrior in the U.S. and U.K., and the latter of which was redubbed into MXC in the U.S.), which had become increasingly popular through YouTube clips. Executive producer Matt Kunitz, who also created NBC's Fear Factor, states Wipeout is "90 percent Fear Factor- inspired, 10 percent Japanese game show."
Wipeout is hosted by John Henson (E! Entertainment's Talk Soup) and John Anderson (ESPN's SportsCenter). Jill Wagner is co-host. Executive producer is Matt Kunitz (Fear Factor). Co-executive producers are Scott Larsen and Shye Sutherland. Series Producer is Trice Barto.
On its premiere night, Wipeout scored the highest premiere rating of any new show in Summer 2008. It also beat competing veteran summer shows Hell's Kitchen and America's Got Talent.
