IT’S THE ULTIMATE BLIND DATE WHEN SINGLE CONTESTANTS MEET FOR THE FIRST TIME AND TAKE ON AN OBSTACLE COURSE, PROVING LOVE HURTS, ON ABC’S “WIPEOUT”
“Blind Date 2012″ — In a special two-hour blind date-themed episode of “Wipeout”, co-host Vanessa Lachey introduces single men and women who have never met before, and they are challenged with the toughest first date ever when they run the Wipeout course together as a couple. Just as life presents obstacles that make dating difficult, the Wipeout course this week does the same when couples encounter big challenges while going Head Over Heels promenading down Lovers Lane and eventually land in the Wipeout Nursery. Everybody also gets a chance to show off to their new mate in the first ever Big Ball Bonanza. In the end, only two of the bravest new couples will seal their date fate in the Wipeout Zone. Whether love is in the cards or just money in their hands, two freshly matched people will go home with an enormous $100,000 prize. Hosted by John Anderson (ESPN’s “SportsCenter”), John Henson (E! Entertainment’s “Talk Soup”) and co-hosted by Vanessa Lachey (ABC’s “True Beauty”) “Wipeout” airs THURSDAY, JULY 26 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
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!
