John Cena is set to host a revived version of the show Wipeout on TBS. He will be joined by Nicole Byer (Nailed it!, Girl Code).
The two will provide colour commentary along with Camille Kostek as “Host in the Field”.
Speaking about his latest gig, Cena said:
“I couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store for this radically absurd show that has its own fair share of legendary faceplants.”
“The power of Wipeout is its ability to gather people of all backgrounds for fast paced, physical FUN! I look forward to seeing fan responses both new and existing. This’ll be a hosting experience unlike anything I’ve ever done! I can’t wait to get started in rooting for our contestants!”
The re-imagined series will feature new twists and elements that will push contestants’ athleticism and determination to even greater extremes, all while most of us watching hope they fall flat on their face for some good old fashioned schadenfreude.
Each game is three rounds with each round featuring a multi-stage obstacle course with numerous strategy and decision points designed to further challenge the stamina of the competitors and of course, the iconic staple of the show – the big balls! – are returning with a vengeance.
The real question however is will the Doctor of Thuganomics be on board to provide medical assistance, or will we just not be able to see him?
