  • Funny stuff!

    24 new contestants competed for that money! The qualifier round was pretty good! There were a lot of funny wipeouts, but there were also some pretty skillful people! Then, there was the sweeper! The third was the Dreadmill. That was where contestants had to go on a speeding treadmill and open three doors while on there, plus, tennis balls come rolling down the treadmill occasionally. Each time someone takes a spill though, it slows down a little bit. Finally, there came the Wipeout Zone where Jim Wakefield, Joey Bynum, David Goryl and Darrin Miller. Jim won the money!

    My favorite was Jim Wakefield! I also liked Ingel and Kelly. Darrin was pretty cool, but I hated Joey. The final four was a pretty good mix! I'm so glad that Jim won! This episode gets an 8.5 out of 10!moreless
  • mixed feelings...

    So, I decided to try to give this show a shot and it was pretty...silly? Is that the right word? There were 24 contestants that went through an obstacle course and the top 12 went through to the next round. Some of the people on the course were terrible and I had no idea what they were even doing on the show. The next thing was jumping over a big arm thing. The top six went through then to the dreadmill, which was really funny to watch. I felt bad for those people. After that, the top four had another obstacle course. I think it's not really fair because only fit people can really do well. It's a facade to think that the older, fatter people can actually win. Anyways, the show was actually entertaining and funny and this was a good episode, though at times it was too silly.moreless
