WIPEOUT Thursday 9/5/13 (8:00-10:01 PM) on ABC

$100,000 AND TRUE LOVE ARE UP FOR GRABS ON AN ALL-NEW BLIND DATE EDITION OF ABC’S “WIPEOUT”

“Blind Date: Even Blinder” – On this all-new special two-hour episode of “Wipeout,” 24 men and women will be set up by matchmaker Jill Wagner and sent on the ultimate blind date under the most challenging circumstances. These 12 couples include a pair of “Foodies,” a “Nurse and her Old Man,” a “Disney Prince and Princess” and the “President and Queen.” The contestants will test their chemistry on the most entertaining televised blind date ever. Their first test at love begins with the Qualifier round, where two can play that game on the “Love Birds,” followed by a romantic first date activity at the “Ant Farm.” Next, eight remaining couples must defeat the “Spinning Sweeper Arms” with the hopes of proceeding onto an all cash, no elimination round called the “Big Ball Bonanza.” During this special round, the six teams will have to big ball like they’ve never big balled before for the chance at $5,000. Then the remaining couples will begin their night on the town in Wipeout City, crossing the “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and trying to survive the “Romantic Helicopter Ride” before facing the “Sugar Smacks.” The two couples with the strongest physical chemistry will face the Wipeout Zone, but only one couple will have the most successful blind date and walk away with a whopping $100,000, while the other couples will leave broken up and empty-handed.

“Wipeout” has successfully taped over 100 episodes, a feat we’ll be celebrating all season long. In addition, the series recently won the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award for Favorite Reality Show for the second year in a row.

Each week, 24 energetic new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes go head to head through four rounds of demanding but hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of Wipeout Champion and the $50,000 grand prize. In the end, only one contestant will be victorious, while everyone else will Wipeout!

“Wipeout” executive producers are Matt Kunitz (“101 Ways to Leave a Game Show,” “Fear Factor”) and Scott Larsen. Kevin Wehrenberg, Trice Barto and J. Rupert Thompson are co-executive producers. The series is produced by Endemol USA.

“Wipeout” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound. This program carries a TV-PG,L parental guideline.
