    Would being on this show and doing the course be a good cross training? Man it's tempting.

      I know a woman who was on this show last year.  Like with most shows of this kind, they film tons and tons of video and then whittle it down.  When all was said and done, we only saw her on-air for about 2 seconds.  And man, she WIPED THE FUCK OUT.

       

      Back injury.  She didn't run for several months.

       

      I'm 100% sure that your post wasn't serious, but wow that show looks painful.  And it really is.

                Oh the chances of that are quite high.  Heh.  Have fun!  And remember, they have lots more contestants than what they show.

                  Every time I've seen that show, I've wondered how many of those Wipe Outs resulted in injury, possible severe in some cases.  I know they must have several EMT crews onhand for the filming.

                  Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                      The Milk Man does not seem to be a fan of Wipe Out.

                        Yeah, I like "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" a lot. More laughs, less trauma. And, having been in Japan quite a few times, I can say that yes, their game shows really are like that.
