  • One Major Flaw

    4.0
    This TV show is great

    It is a unique idea and is one of my favourite shows to watch.

    However it's major flaw is the most important part of the show, the final round

    If you fall on one of the obstacles you can swim to the next one. People win this by swimming faster than others. I could watch any swimming show or go to my local pool if i wanted to watch that.

    Now there is no real winner, just a faster swimmer. The winner if the win a date episode just swum his way to the finish because he said he's been swimming since he was little.

    This is not the old show, and I understand shows have to grow and change to keep it interesting but making the final round complete waste of time, and so that the entire competition is inaccurately judged is not a beneficial change. I hope they realise this fix this flaw because the amount of frustration it puts on the viewers is not worth watching.

    If the contestants fall, which they do a lot, instead of just swimming along to the next obstacle they should have to redo the last obstacle once more or twice more.

    That way you are judging them on they're ability to do the obstacles, not swim past them.

    Especially when they fall of at the very beginning, they hardly even try

    Please take my review into consideration because I really didenjoy this show until recentlymoreless

    My five year old grandson loves this show. He does not watch Go Diego Go, Dora the Explorer or Team Umizoomi his previous favorites anymore. He can't wait until he is old enough to be a contestant. The Spring Wipeout are his favorite episodes.
