I was dumb enough to go on WipeOut. AMA!
I wanted my 15 minutes of fame. Instead I got hours upon hours of pain.
I was on the episode "Spring Episode 3: John Henson, Zombie Hunter" which aired March 31, 2011.
I did not make it very far, I came in LAST in the qualifier, but I did finish it. I did go through the long casting, application, drug and fitness testing process, and I beat out over 74,000 other applicants. It was a very interesting experience, albeit a painful one.
I am new-ish to reddit, I hope I posted the images correctly. Let me know if I didn't! And AMA!
Edit: fixed an image link
Edit: HOLY BIG BALLS this is doing well. I would love to hear from someone that had a different/better experience on the show, an AMA or in the comments
EDIT: here is a AMA with someone that WON wipeout, had a very different experience than I did. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/w0244/i_am_dorky_kong_wipeouts_latest_winner_ama/
