** GameShowHost: Two of them: John Anderson and John Henson, although their role is closer to that of a commentator. (Unsurprisingly, Anderson's day job is SportsCenter anchor and John Henson was a former [[Series/TheSoup Talk Soup]] host.)

* HypocriticalHumor: One joke in a recent episode was John asking John Anderson if he's into sports. John replies he's not really a sports guy at all. [[spoiler:John Anderson is one of the major anchors on ''SportsCenter''.]]

No new season debuted for the 2015 summer season; Endemol had been casting a DarkerAndEdgier reboot known as ''Wipeout Extreme''; given their need for contestants with interest in "crossfit, parkour, iron competitions, triathlons, [and] Spartan races", it seemed to imply that they wanted to retool the series into a competitor to ''Series/AmericanNinjaWarrior''. However, it has not yet surfaced...

The show currently airs on truTV as part of their late-night lineup.

* EpicFail: In one second-season episode, a contestant reached the very first corner of the qualifier, slipped and fell, and promptly yelled "I'm done!" She lasted less than ten seconds.

Added DiffLines:

** Ariel Tweto became infamous on the show for [[FailedASpotCheck not seeing a pole that was directly in front of her]]. After a few seconds of trying, she just ran past the pole and jumped into the water. When asked why she did it, Ariel said she thought the pole was supposed to be yellow.

'''''Wipeout''''' is an American GameShow on Creator/{{ABC}} in which 24 contestants compete in a series of events seemingly designed to humiliate and otherwise annoy them. The last contestant standing wins $50,000. Inspired by [[WidgetSeries crazy Japanese stunt game shows]] like ''TakeshisCastle'' (although older viewers may also find it not dissimilar to ''Jeux sans frontières'').

* [[TransAtlanticEquivalent Trans Pacific Equivalent]]: The show is similar enough to ''TakeshisCastle'' that the Tokyo Broadcasting System is suing Creator/{{ABC}} over copyright infringement.

Not to be confused with the [[Series/{{Wipeout1988}} 1988-89 game show of the same name]]; there was also a UK version that ran for much longer than the U.S. version. Or the [[VideoGame/{{Wipeout}} futuristic racing game series]]; coincidentally, this ''Wipeout'' also has a video game of it.
