VIDEO: Sneak Peek - Chris Harrison Guests on Tonight's WIPEOUT
Will some rekindle lost love? Will others be able to put aside their differences? Contestants will team up with their former girlfriends or boyfriends to compete on this first ever exes edition of "Wipeout." These couples will need to channel all of their former passion for each other towards competing together on the most extraordinary obstacle course ever created.
Only six out of the twelve couples will have a fast enough time to qualify and move on to the challenging Miami Pound Machine, with only three duos getting a taste of Sugar Smacks. However, just the top two reconnected couples that survive will move on to the Wipeout Zone, where they'll be broken up once again to compete as individual contestants for the chance to win the grand prize. Meanwhile, special guest CHRIS HARRISON from ABC's "The Bachelor" visits the course in search of the next Bachelor or Bachelorette in this group of single men and women. "Wipeout," hosted by John Anderson (ESPN's "SportsCenter"), John Henson (E! Entertainment's "Talk Soup") and co-hosted by Jill Wagner (MTV's "Teen Wolf"), airs THURSDAY, JULY 11 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
"Wipeout" has successfully taped over 100 episodes, a feat we'll be celebrating all season long. In addition, the series recently won the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award for Favorite Reality Show for the second year in a row.
Each week, 24 energetic new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes go head to head through four rounds of demanding but hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of Wipeout Champion and the $50,000 grand prize. In the end only one contestant will be victorious; everyone else will Wipeout!
"Wipeout" executive producers are Matt Kunitz ("101 Ways to Leave a Game Show," "Fear Factor") and Scott Larsen. Kevin Wehrenberg, Trice Barto and J. Rupert Thompson are co-executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA.
