It was only a matter of time.

"For example, every 'Wipeout' contestant undergoes medical exams before participating. There are also 2 paramedics on-site, plus a safety producer and paramedic coordinator. '

How'd that work out?

Probably extremely well for the family knowing he passed being given an honest chance to live by medical professionals who did everything they could. Much better than the alternative, laying for 15-20 while the general public screw up CPR while waiting for an ambulance and medics to arrive.

That was a fun ragdoll sim for the Wii.

Had I known I was controlling a real person I would have at least tried to complete a course.

Probably pretty well from a liability standpoint.

The niece and nephew were experts at tossing a tennis ball right where you needed to land. Of course they started as experts in beaming you off the head.  Fun Wii game.

Doubtful.  A contestant died as a result of performing in their program.

Since it hasn't even aired new episodes yet, I expect TBS to shelve the project entirely.  They can't cite a history of positive seasons under their stead prior to the contestant's death, so it's just easier to simply stop production and never air what they've recorded or done post-production work on.  Just sweep it under the rug and it becomes a nonevent for them.

Unfortunately, you're probably right, but major bummer. My family loved that show, especially all the unnecessary shaving cream cannons just to make everything more slippery.

Sucks for this guy, though.

At least they'll avoid a negligence lawsuit.

A few HS kids die on the field each year, so not that unusual.  Undiagnosed cardiac condition made itself known.

Takeshi's Castle. I knew it as "Road To The Palace" when I fist saw it in Okinawa on Japanese television in 1989/1990... and loved it then, but really enjoyed it when it became "MXC". (I was also introduced to Power Rangers in their original form by a fellow Marine who said they'd be a huge hit in the US).

Wipeout is a poor imitator, with absolutely none of the soul.

That's ok, the reboot sucked ass majorly. After the English dubbed version of the original left Spike, it wasn't the same and you could never capture that lightning again. The reboots weren't interesting at all.

Given the way they bend, fold, spindle, and mutilate the contestant, my only surprise is it's taken this long to have a serious injury or death.

Bodies aren't meant to bend in those directions.

Plus you can be standing in a hospital and it's still touch and go with "Hey look random heart attack!"  That's not really something you can predict/ameliorate too well,   Actual injury/sickness/whatever?  Yeah WTH Wipeout.  Heart attack?  Can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime - and there ain't shiat any precautions are going to help with other than quick supportive care being available in this case.

I always thought that was a fun show..Plenty of double entedre' and witty commentary about the
contestants by the hosts..Needs more gloppy stuff to fall into though..Like jello or pudding or
Nickelodeon slime..

Student athletes die of weird heart things kind of regularly, I wonder if this is one of those deals.

I guess this is pretty close to "he died doing what he loved" but a far cry from "a massive heart attack after snorting coke off a hooker's tits".

If i was that guy, i would be flat out pissed if my wife didn't take the chance to be on TV saying "He died doing what he loved, making an ass out of himself"
