Trivia / Wipeout (2008)

  • The Cast Showoff: In "Ballsy gets a hard hat", Kenny gets a moment to show off his juggling skills.
  • Fan Nickname: During one episode, Anderson mentions they've gotten a number of 'scorpion' wipeouts which apparently refers to the occasional instances where a contestant's feet touch their head.
  • Name's the Same: The British version is called Total Wipeout to avoid confusion with a 1994-2002 gameshow - the British version of the 1988 Wipeout series.
    • The original American version is also shown in the UK as Total Wipeout USA.
  • What Could Have Been: An eighth season with a re-branding as Wipeout Extreme was announced but due to declining ratings, ABC quickly changed their minds and cancelled it.
