"Wipe-out" is a remake of the American reality show "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge", which itself was just an English-dubbed version of the Japanese gameshow "Takeshi's Castle" which aired in the 80's.

Warning: if you watch even 5 minutes of this crap, that is 5 minutes of your life you will never get back.
