WIPEOUT GETS BUCKING CRAZY AS PLAYERS FACE THE BUCKING BRONCOS,
THE MONKEY JIGGALATOR AND GET SERVED PIZZAS FROM THE DOUBLE BARREL,
ON ABC's "WIPEOUT"
"Bucking Broncos and Jiggling Monkeys" - "The animals rise up against the contestants in this episode! There are wild stallions, crazed monkeys and the kings of the Wipeout jungle... the Big Balls!," says host John Henson. Contestants are eager to try taming our wild Bucking Broncos, as flying horse shoes are hurled at them for good luck. Next on the course, competitors try to make it past the Monkey Jiggalator, where our two jiggling monkeys want nothing more than to get up close and personal with our players to finish any unsettled monkey business. Then our players all get sauced and tossed as the Double Barrel serves up delicious pizzas with extra pepperoni and cheese, which is a surefire recipe for extra Wipeouts. In the end, there will only be one Wipeout champion, going home $50,000 richer. Hosted by John Anderson (ESPN's "SportsCenter"), John Henson (E! Entertainment's "Talk Soup") and co-hosted by Jill Wagner, "Wipeout" airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET)
