Episode 4.23 - Ballsy Gets a Hard Hat
August 2

You've frozen through the winter... You've sneezes through the spring... Now it's batter up for some Big Ball action! Welcome to the summer of WIPEOUT!


Tonight, the Qualifier consists of...

- The Wipeout Car Wash... with two attendants.
- The Big Balls...
- The Jiggle-Lator... Two bridges and one chasm of death. And a sail.
- The Double Barrel... a double wheel consisting of a red side and a blue side. Today, it also has flying donuts and pink frosting.

We start, as always, with 24. We end, as always, with the 12 best times.

- Daniel "Rhythm & Blows" Ramos
- Belinda Gamez
- Carrie Sparks
- Cheer mom Susanah Harper
- Debbie Shair
- Vincent "Doc Brown" Donadio
- Tim Rambow
- Andrew "Poker Face" Barton
- Jessica "Foot Phone" Bravo
- Breana Laprera
- Undeclared Christina Wilson
- Bodyguard Mark Holwick


The 12 remaining players will start on an pedestal 10 feet above the water and do their damnedest to avoid three orbiting rings and a multidimensional crankshaft sweeper arm. They'll have to dodge both in order to get to the finish line. First six will win a trip to the next stage.

- Daniel "Rhythm & Blows" Ramos
- Cheer mom Susanah Harper
- Tim Rambow
- Andrew "Poker Face" Barton
- Undeclared Christina Wilson
- Bodyguard Mark Holwick


The course features Street Sweepers, the Spinnerchange, Rocking Roadblocks, and the finish line. Oh yeah, and they all have to dodge the wrecking crew on the side. We'll play three rounds, and the winners move on to the Wipeout Zone.

- Cheer mom Susanah Harper
- Tim Rambow
- Bodyguard Mark Holwick


It's the moment you've been waiting for. Only one thing stands between our players and $50,000... A BRAND NEW WIPEOUT ZONE!

- The Towering Flume of Doom
- The Iron Mazen
- The Axle of Evil
- The Great Wall of Fall

There's a check in the amount of $50,000 American cash money waiting for the person with the fastest time.

First up... Rambow. Tim Rambow, that is. He gets confused by the Iron Mazen. He's fumbled himself near the exit.. but gets wiped out at the end. Second time is better time, but he gets flung by the Axle of Evil. He nails it the second time out. Finally, the Great Wall of Fall puts him at 16:37.

Susannah Harper now the top of a seven-story pyramid. She takes the big wipeout on the start of it! Then at the end of it! She needs a couple of breaks on the Axle of Evil... but her day is done as she's left to hang.

That leaves one person, Mark Holwick. Trained Special Forces, does he have what it takes to beat the course? He has some 14 minutes to complete the Great Wall of Fall. He's Wipeout-Free in the ... spoke too soon. But his final time... holds! WITH A TIME OF 4:41, WE-E-E-E-E WILL ALWAYS LOVE WIPEOUT CHAMPION MARK HOLWICK!

Another episode Thursday. Meanwhile, stay tuned for the premiere of "Take the Money and Run", coming up over most of these ABC stations. For now, it's Good night... and Big Balls.
