"Wipeout brings new meaning to the phrase 'love hurts,'" says host John Henson. Twelve couples will meet for the first time for a chance to win double the usual prize money and take home a $100,000 jackpot, giving them all the reasons why they should make this their best blind date ever on an obstacle course built for making love connections. Love conquers all, but couples will first have to conquer the qualifier, as they take a wild ride on the Love Train, followed by heavy flirting with disaster on the billowing Big Balls. The love matches will then take a lovers' leap over to the romantic Wipeout Italian Kitchen, where the face-plant parmigiana and flattening cannolis are guaranteed to dish out affection. Only the most perfect couples will move on to the Wipeout Zone, where they will fall hard, in the name of love, but only one duo will be crowned champions.
