Trivia

Host Richard Hammond is know for creating nicknames for virtually all the contestants. These have included 'Jumping Jack', 'Gassy Alex', 'Slam Dunk James', 'Bouncy Becky', 'Cartwheeling Tara', 'Nervous Anthony', 'Scary Claire', 'Everest Alice', 'No Problem At All Dave', 'Geeky Sam', 'Tom The Tank Engine', 'Grumpy David', 'John With His Beard', 'Cowman Arran' (due to his habit of constantly mooing with triumph), 'Chatty Peran' (who was actually virtually monosyllabic) and 'Who's The Derek?' (yes, as in 'Who's The Daddy?') See more »

Goofs

In the Total Wipeout award episode at the end of the first series, an international award was given out. Twice in that section, awards were given out to Australian contestants but the graphics for each clip showed a New Zealand flag in the top right hand corner of the screen. See more »

funny and underrated
26 March 2012 | by klikzSee all my reviews

the American version i haven't seen so i cant judge but the main British show (apart from Richard Hammond) is really funny and is really good if you want to see people suffer which is morally wrong but still the coarse never gets boring because of the way people act around it whether their really unfit or incredibly healthy they all seem to fail at some point or another. its good to watch when there isn't anything on. the coarse of the show consists of 4 stages that also includes the final test at the end they win 10 grand for themselves unless its a celeb in which they give to charity. Richard Hammond is actually more boring as a cucumber sandwich and shouldn't be given a script that has more bad humour than how many spots teenagers have.
