Yes, I admit it. It's a guilty pleasure of mine to watch these enthusiastic contestants run through a wall of punching gloves which about 98% of the time nails them square in the face and they go flying into a pool of mud. I can watch that over and over, and the soothing effect that it has on me, oh, it's the best. :)
But to be a contestant? Given that there's no chance that I would win, I'll just choose to sit back and watch the Human Nascar Crashes, if you will. It's the ultimate stress relief, especially after a hard day at work.
Anyway, Canadians, if you're a fan of the show Wipeout (see the YouTube video clip below if you don't know it), and you're looking to make a quick $50,000, Wipeout is coming to Canada and looking for Canadian Contestants!! The Entry Deadline is July 1, 2010.
Here are the details from the Wipeout Canada website, in care you're interested:
WIPEOUT CANADA - BE A CONTESTANT
Wipeout Canada is looking for Canadians from all walks of life to apply - men and women, young and old, athletic and clumsy - all of the above. Fill out the application form now to be considered!
Here's a little tip for you: We're looking for enthusiastic Wipeout Canada fans who are ready to showcase their personalities and show Canada what they're made of. So be creative when you're filling out your application and be sure to submit some cool photos that depict the 'real you'. Also submit an audition video link if possible. The more we see, the more we get to know you - maybe give us your battle cry, do your victory dance or show us a costume - don't be afraid to think outside the box!
Applications will only be accepted via the WipeoutCanada.com website application form, but you can download a printable copy here to plan your answers ahead of time. The full application will take about 30 minutes to complete, so be sure to have some time set aside before you begin. Also, note that refreshing the page at any time will erase all form data.
Good luck! This site will close for entries on July 1, 2010 at 11:59pm ET.
And as promised, the YouTube video clip:
