Episode 4.14 - Spring Wipeout: Dirty Laundry
May 12

There's an old Buddhist saying... "Winter never fails to turn into spring." We had the winter of our discontent for the last eight episodes... But today, here comes the sun! Get ready for SPRING WIPEOUT!


Tonight, the Qualifier consists of...

- The Faulty Bridge.. With sweepers and breakaway boards, it's custom made to ford the troubled water. Or not.
- The Twister Mill... windmill you don't want to cross.
- The Big Balls... Now with a new SPRING-ovator conveyor belt. No spring there, though. Plenty of spring on the Balls, though.
- The Spring Fling... A small ball bounces over to the giant swing going in the wrong direction.
- The Wipeout Laundromat... The kitchen is closed, and the laundry is open. Kick'em when they're up, kick'em when they're down.

The 24 spring breakers will take on the course, and the 12 with the fastest times will advance to stage 2.

- Jessica "Lazy Bum" Sapinoso
- Newspaper reporter Sonya English
- Nick Sexauer
- Puppy lover Milly Watson
- Stephanie Arter
- Chris "The Yodeler" Tweedy
- Nicholas "Supermanny" Benko
- Bryant Smith
- Caitlin "Almost Amish" Avery
- Richard "Leprechaun" Collins
- Kayla Johnson
- William "Ragin' Cajun" Davis Jr.


What's a spring fling without a carnival classic? Contestants will start on the red track, grab a red dangler, and make it to a red spot that leads to a yellow dangler and do the same thing with a yellow dangler. If they wipeout before the spot, they'll have to go back to the start, but the first six to avoid the sweeper arms and make it to the finish target move on to the next stage.

See "Season 1 Sweeper Round". Played in three rounds. Winner of each round moves on to the Wipeout Zone.

Back and with a spring fresh smell, it's the toughest of the courses, the Spring Wipeout Zone! Tonight's lineup...

- The Chairborne: a rocket chair will launch our players into the Zone.
- The Over and Out: two rotating cliffhangers with floors on both the top and the bottom... but the bottom... or is it the top... has a hole.
- The Point Break: climb up one end, then time the slide down to the other.
- The Coin Toss: heads or tails, it adds up to eight spinning platforms on to the finish.

Fifty large goes to the quickest time.

First up, the lazy bum Jessica Sapinoso. She uses the wedge, but to no avail. Three minutes in, and she's up to Point Break. She doesn't quit, even though you can tell she wants to, having never worked THIS hard for cash before, setting a time of 10:17.

Next up, a Ragin' Cajun with a head full of steam. William Davis gets to take the Zone next. He's running a minute on the leader thanks to his performance in the Over and Out. Now he's two minutes on the leader heading to the Coin Toss, setting a final time of 5:20.

Tough time to beat, but not impossible. Will almost Amish Caitlin Avery win the day? She gets hit by balls in the Over and Out, but she's taking time to make time. She has one minute to pass the Point Break and the Coin Toss. She times the slide right, now she has less than a minute to go on the Coin Toss...Nope on the first. She'll try again, but she's too late. WILLIAM DAVIS JR. TAKES THE BIG MONEY AND THE TITLE. THIS IS WHAT WE CAME TO DO!

Next time, we finish out the spring with everyone's favorite... Couples Wipeout! Until then, good night... and big balls.
