Total Wipeout

Total Wipeout is a British game show, hosted by Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram, which first aired on 3 January 2009. Each week, 20 contestants compete in a series of challenges in an attempt to win £10,000. These challenges are based in large pools of water or mud and generally involve large assault courses that participants must cross. Total Wipeout is a licensed version of Wipeout, the Endemol show that originated in the United States in 2008, with the name slightly altered to avoid confusion with the BBC version of the earlier game show of the same name. On 29 March 2012, BBC confirmed that they are to axe Total Wipeout after its sixth series. The Daily Mirror reported that a BBC spokesperson said: "After four very successful series of Total Wipeout, and one series of Winter Wipeout, the BBC has taken the decision that the next series, due to transmit later this year, will be the last." The remaining 10 episodes from Series 5 began airing on 18 August 2012 and ended the show’s 4-year run on BBC One before 2013.

Season 5 - Total Wipeout
"Special programme honouring the heroes of Total Wipeout's fifth series."
"Finalists from across the series return to compete for the title of series champion."
"Hopefuls including a wannabe singer and a tennis coach take on the famous course."
"Richard Hammond and co-host Amanda Byram return to guide 20 foolhardy Brits through the biggest and daftest obstacle course in the universe. From giant hammers that smack them in the face to the Shapeshifter, via the Big Red Balls, each contestant braves the Qualifier to attempt qualification for Double Cross. From there, the field is halved and those 'lucky' enough to make it through to Terror-Go-Round face it head-on in an effort to get to the Wipeout Zone. Darkness, raging torrents and fire bursts lie between the finalists and the chance of winning ten thousand pounds. Who will get their hands on the coveted Total Wipeout trophy?"
"Stand by for foam-padded action. It's another high-octane, low pain threshold edition of crazed knockabout game show Total Wipeout. Richard Hammond, as your host, will be arching an eyebrow at the ludicrous antics of 20 more over-excited contestants, who have thrown caution to the wind - and will have to be cautious if they don't want to be winded - on Argentina's famous Total Wipeout course. From the side of the course, co-host Amanda Byram will be stifling laughs as contestants bravely tackle the Sucker Punch with added paint power, the brilliantly bouncy Big Red Balls and the disaster waiting to happen that is Double Cross. Four rounds of torment and terror, mud and mayhem are worth it for one lucky contestant though, as he or she will be crowned the Total Wipeout champion and pocket a cheque for £10,000."
"Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram guide 20 Brits through the perilous obstacle course."
"Contestants include an over-excited trainee maths teacher and an ageing rocker from Kent."
"Contestants include a pair of quarrelsome neighbours, a Thai boxer and a police officer."
"Contestants include a vicar, a prison manager and a farmer from Glamorgan."
"Contestants include an accountant, a professor of science and an Obi-Wan Kenobi lookalike."
