A male contestant on the obstacle course game show Wipeout has died after completing a course on the show...

The contestant, who has not been named, went into cardiac arrest after finishing the course and was treated on set by emergency professionals. Paramedics were then called in and the contestant was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.

Sources close to the production confirm that all contestants on the show are expected to complete medical exams before being cleared to participate, and other safety precautions on the show include having on-site paramedics, doctors, and a safety producer.

That’s why I always liked Double Dare. 15 years and not a single proven fatality.

Was the "completed course" the first (daylight) run, or the final three contestants night time run?

I actually loved this show, they would beat the shite out of the contestants. And was glad to hear they were bringing it back, hopefully this doesn't rain on the shows parade. John and John were good as hosts.

This happened in 2009 as well.

At least he completed it before he was wiped out.

On my 2020 Dead Pool list, I had “Wipeout Contestant.” Do I get credit or did I have to use his full name?

It died with the gentleman who died, sorry for playing.

So, even if you complete the course, they give you a heart attack to prevent you from acquiring the prizes... Great strategy!
