‘Wipeout’ Episode Guide (Aug. 31): Contestants Compete In Hair-Raising Obstacles

“My So-Bald Life” (08/31/14) – On an all-new episode of “Wipeout,” host John Henson may have lost all of his hair, but 24 new contestants compete on hair-raising obstacles for the big money prize, on “Wipeout,” SUNDAY, AUGUST 31 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET).

Our contestants, including “Big Foot Enthusiast” and “Paid to Party,” tan their hides at “Wipeout Shores” and swing by “Dracula’s Condo” for a scary good time. But only one will snatch the cash prize and a chance to compete in the “Tournament of Champions” at the end of the season.

“Wipeout” is hosted by John Anderson (ESPN’s “SportsCenter”), John Henson (E!’s “Talk Soup”) and co-hosted by Jill Wagner (MTV’s “Teen Wolf”).

The seventh season of ABC’s hit game show, “Wipeout,” will feature the first ever “Tournament of Champions” with the winner from each episode returning to compete against one another in an epic battle for the title of Ultimate Wipeout Champion. Leading up to the tournament, each episode will showcase 24 adventurous players of all shapes and sizes as they compete in a brand new obstacle course designed to showcase the best body flips, biggest splashes and amazing wipeouts that you won’t want to miss.

“Wipeout” was created by executive producers Matt Kunitz (“101 Ways to Leave a Game Show,” “Fear Factor”) and Scott Larsen. Kevin Wehrenberg, Trice Barto and J. Rupert Thompson are also executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA.
