‘Wipeout’ Renewed for 2nd Season
ABC announced Wednesday that it has picked up the U.S. reality competition series "Wipeout" for a second season.
"Each week 24 daring new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes will go head to head through four rounds of grueling and physically demanding but wildly hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of 'Wipeout Champion' and the grand prize of $50,000," the network said in a press release. "The contestants and the courses change every week."
John Anderson of ESPN's "SportsCenter" and John Henson of E! Entertainment's "Talk Soup" are to continue to preside over the competition series as hosts in Season 2, ABC said.
