Wipeout Canada applications closed

From a media release:


  • 1 in 750 Canadians dare to tackle the world’s largest obstacle course for a chance at $50,000
  • Contestant callbacks begin this month

What do a walrus trainer, a professional bull rider, roller derby girls, beauty pageant participants, CFL/NHL players and Olympic medalists have in common? They are just a few of the astonishing 44,619 Canadians who completed the extensive online application form for the opportunity to appear on TVtropolis’ Wipeout Canada.

Between June 2 and July 1, almost one in every 750 Canadians answered the highly buzzed-about Wipeout Canada questionnaire. With questions ranging from the silly to the serious, applicants submitted their photos and video links, while sharing their stories of adventure and inspiration for an opportunity to win $50,000 and compete on the world’s largest obstacle course.

“We are thrilled that the massive support from Canadian fans during this application process has been so positive and enthusiastic and has generated overwhelming buzz for the series,” said Karen Gelbart, SVP, Content, Lifestyle Channels, Canwest Broadcasting. “Along with our producing partners Lone Eagle Entertainment Ltd., we’re committed to sustaining this energy and momentum as we create a truly Canadian perspective for the series.”

“If the application process is any indication of the intensity and vigor that Canadians will bring to the series, then we all better hold on tight,” said Michael Geddes, Executive Producer, Lone Eagle Entertainment. “Our dedicated team of producers is currently reviewing all of the applications, looking for the most enthusiastic, fun-loving fans to be part of the show, plus those who can also pull off the ultimate victory dance!”

A national shortlist of potential contestants will be contacted for follow-up interviews in the days to come. A total of 260 contestants will be chosen to participate in Wipeout Canada, giving 20 contestants in each episode the chance to conquer the course, ultimately leading to the winner who will earn the episode’s $50,000 grand prize.

Hosted by quick-witted Canadians, Jonathan Torrens (TV with TV’s Jonathan Torrens, Trailer Park Boys), Ennis Esmer (Young People Fucking; The Listener) and co-hosted by Jessica Phillips (Deal or No Deal Canada; Being Erica), production of the 13 one-hour episodes of Wipeout Canada will begin this October on the iconic set, promising to provide the most spectacular and often painfully hilarious spills, face plants and, of course, wipeouts.

For exclusive news, interviews, contests and behind-the-scenes footage and photos, fans are encouraged to join the official Wipeout Canada Facebook fan page at www.Facebook/WipeoutCanada.com.

  12. WipeOut Canada,

    I would love to be a contestant on your show. I’m a college student who is taking police foundations and know i have the skills and physical ability to really do well on the show. i also have a great advantage because im 6 foot 2, which is way above average. im an outgoing person who is always the life of the party. im exactly what you have been looking for!

    hope to hear from you soon


  14. just to let you know i intend to send a message to the ethics commissioner of canada protesting the way that this show degrades the national anthem of this country i am a veteran and am very proud of both the national anthem and the royal anthem and i do not believe it is legal to use either for commercial purposes . also to let you know that the national anthem o canada was not intended to be played in the degrading manner that you use in your advertisements i am sure that you have insulted many veterans in this great country and i for one will not watch and my family feels the same way

  15. I really wanted to apply but it said no glasses, though i heard later they changed it to see well enough without to go through the course.

    I hope there will be a 2nd season so I have a chance to apply, and watch the craziness on tv if i dont make it.

  21. Hey what’s up Wipeout Canada, I would love to be part of your show and truly entertain my country in style. I am 20 years old and I love watching your show, all your contestants cannot handle the obstacle courses you guys give, I am your man and I will win without a doubt if I am given the opportunity. Montreal Quebec for the win baby!!!

  22. Hi, Wipe out Canada
    I wanted to sign both my brother’s up on your show they are just hilarious and comical and would be interesting seeing them on your show.
    Every time we watch your show they talk about, oh I can do that, Yeah right LOL.
    But they believe they can do every obstacle on there and it would make more then just their newphew’s and my day. My oldest brother owns his own company and my other brother works for him and to have all his employee’s to sit back and watch. Would make everyone’s day.
    They always talk about coming on and being a contestant , they have asked me to sign them up, but I can not seem to be able to find your application page.
    It would be even better to go surprise, they actually are able to take you as contestants. They are physically fit to be able to join if that another need to join the show.
