Total Wipeout, Series 4 Episode 5 of 12

Duration: 1 hour

If people banging into huge foam shapes, falling into water and contorting themselves into the most ridiculous positions, is the kind of thing that makes you laugh - then Total Wipeout is the show for you. Hosted by Richard Hammond and Amanda Byram, it is the most exciting game show on television.

This episode welcomes a set of contestants to Buenos Aires to take on the wrath of some seriously hard obstacles in the hope of bagging £10,000 and the really rather cool trophy. The Qualifier sees the return of old favourite, the Big Red Balls and the Motivator to provide a little help for those feeling reluctant to throw themselves off the ledge. The Propellers, Sucker Punch and Cradles of Doom complete the line up on the first round. Crash Mountain cuts 12 contestants down to 5 and Dizzy Dummies reduces the line up even further. The show culminates in the Wipeout Zone where things get really competitive in order to win the prize and a lifetime of respect.

The action is crazier than ever, the laughs are louder than ever and the competition is more competitive than it has ever been before.
