“We’re looking for daring, thrill-seeking Canadians who believe they have the skill to compete in Wipeout’s extremely challenging course,” said Karen Gelbart, SVP, Content, Lifestyle Channels, Canwest Broadcasting.
Quick-witted Canadian TV veteran Jonathan Torrens (TV with TV’s Jonathan Torrens, Trailer Park Boys) and Canadian Comedy Award nominee, Ennis Esmer (Young People Fucking; The Listener) will host the Canadian format of the painfully funny series, offering humourous running commentary. Model and actress, Jessica Phillips (Deal or No Deal Canada; Being Erica) will be on the front lines of all the wipeout action as co-host, providing additional commentary and contestant reactions direct from the course.
Slated to premiere on TVtropolis in the Spring of 2011, Wipeout Canada will give 20 contestants in each episode the chance to conquer the course over four rounds of competition, ultimately leading to the crowning of the winner who will earn a $50,000 grand prize.
Thirteen one-hour Canadian episodes will be taped on the iconic Wipeout set this October, promising to provide the most spectacular and often painfully hilarious spills, face plants and wipeouts.
