Episode 4.24 - Is That a Potato In Your Sack or Are You Just Happy to Wipeout?
August 4

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


Tonight, the Qualifier consists of...

- Kindergarten Chaos... Fingerpaint... Dodgeball... Everything from grade school.
- The Big Balls... now with Dreadmill Motivator
- The Mood Swing... A slide leadsr to the giant swing going in the wrong direction.
- Nana's Kitchen.. Today, it's corndogs!

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

- Joel "The Landshark" Jordan
- Derrick "Baby Boxer" Hill
- Face tattoo Laura Jean Hyde
- Adan "Pepper Power" Garcia
- Danelle "Double Cornea: Miller
- Lizi Elmore
- Christy "Ball of Fun" Holt
- Jen Johnston
- Megan Park
- Pumkin farmer April Groefsma
- Katie "Scary Doll Lady" Hill
- Jermaine "No Relation" Jackson


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 double dangler. If they wipeout before the spot, they'll have to go back to the start, but the first three teams to avoid the sweeper arms and make it to the finish target move on to the next stage.

- Joel "The Landshark" Jordan
- Derrick "Baby Boxer" Hill
- Adan "Pepper Power" Garcia
- Christy "Ball of Fun" Holt
- Pumkin farmer April Groefsma
- Jermaine "No Relation" Jackson


Wearing potato sacks, the players will have to jump over a sweeper that will rise higher and higher with every pass. This is a sweepers round, where contestants will try to avoid being knocked out for three rounds. Last one standing at the end of each will head to the Wipeout Zone.

- Joel "The Landshark" Jordan
- Pumkin farmer April Groefsma
- Jermaine "No Relation" Jackson


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 Chairborne
- The Over and Out
- The Point Break
- The Coin Toss

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

Joel Jordan is first. He tries the wedge move... but gets more surf and less turf. He makes it past the Over and Out... and it only takes 12 minutes. He's feeling the earlier wipeout... and lands the Point Break first out! He finishes the Coin Toss with a time of 13:38.

Next up to challenge... Motown, Jermaine Jackson. High knees to start the Over and Out... and he hits his shoulder HARD. That'll take him out of the competition.

That leaves April Groefsma. Excellent distance on the Chairborne. Two times it takes her to clear the Over and Out. She's ahead of the pace in Point Break. Takes her two times to get to the Coin Toss. She has three minutes to finish... but she wipes out on the third coin. This may be her last shot... APRIL GROEFSMA NAILS IT TO WIN THE $50,000 WITH A TIME OF 13:03!

More obstacles and more wipeouts next time. Good night... and Big Balls.
