They then climb up, and cross a high spinning platform bridge to the next obstacle. They would repeat this three times and the last two would be eliminated. Joshu immediately withdrew as a result. Every other episode featuring this challenge has one person quitting.
The course consists of four distinct parts, the second and third of which are constant. Usually, contestants had to cross the Launch Pads Blast Off in Episode 9, The Tackle Dummy Turntables in the Wipeout Bowl but those were replaced by a platform with 3 punching pistols The Gauntlet then a turntable filled with foam Foam-Filled Turntable and then onto a bridge that pulls up when contestants get close, forcing them to climb up Drop Bridge.
Time stops once judges declare that the contestant is in the proper position usually standing on the goal. An alternative to the Dizzy Dummy is the Dreadmill. One of these human-shaped cut-outs also known as the Cookie Cutter was used as the final hurdle in the Qualifier round of the first broadcast episode.
After one round of jumping over the Sweeper, it would gyrate in a circular motion. In Season 2, Killer Surf was sometimes replaced by a catapult The Catapult that shoots contestants into the water.
If the triangles rotate, the contestants fall into the water. In season two, The Motivator was added on the platform that led to the Big Balls, which knocks off any contestant that hesitates to start jumping across the Big Balls.
The first contestant to cross the obstacle will advance, and the contestants are forced to go back to the beginning of the obstacle if they fall off. Sometimes they add stuff like being hit with a meteor shower or bring sprayed with space gas by a spaceman Major John Henson.
The first one to win would go through to The Wipeout Zone. Contestants were given the choice of jumping over it, or ducking under it, making them have to time their jumps and ducks just right.
The next obstacle is the "Sucker Punch", a wall covered in boxing gloves which punch out at random intervals to knock the contestants into a mud pit. So far, there has been only one instance that a contestant, in this case third week contestant Jarran Joshu, had gotten so dizzy that he vomited.
The Dreadmill is a large treadmill with various obstacles for the contestants to overcome: After climbing, the Drop Bridge drops, either knocking contestants into the water or two feet below the finishing platform. If contestants fall off, they are either done with their turn or forced to start over, depending on the objective.
Though slight variations are used in each episode, each contestant must slide down a long ramp Killer Surfswim to and then travel up an uphill ramp with large barrels rolling down it that are released at regular intervals Barrel Runcross a narrow climbing wall to the other side Water Wallleap onto a large spinning wheel with foam pillars and then leap off onto the opposite platform Spinnerthen finally cross a series of trampolines set at different heights and distances to the final platform Launch Pads.
