Favorite new show.


I have discovered the most amazing show. The Office will always be on the top of my list but I find myself actually laughing out loud for an entire hour watching "WIPEOUT!" Not only are the commentators comments funny but watching your average Joe or Jane (usually the contestants are really uncoordinated) completely eat sh*& is the most hilarious thing I think I'll ever witness. As I watch I'm amazed that these people don't break bones and have major head injuries after running through the obstacle course. From the looks of it anyone can get on the show. Your only requirement is to be really uncoordinated and over 18. There are actually obese contestants that try their hardest to even attempt at getting through the course, and in doing so risk their lives because a. they're obese and b. they're obese and uncoordinated. It's rip roaring funny. And yes I do find humor in watching people almost kill themselves.

Dennis and I were watching last night and decided that we are going to try to get on the show. The contestants on the show are embarrassingly horrible. It's almost like the producers won't allow anyone to participate who has had any history of athleticism. Dennis is confident that he would win the whole thing and take the $50,000 prize! Well we shall see.

I highly recommend watching this if you haven't. It's on Wednesday nights at seven on ABC.

I hate to admit to this.. but I have looked into applying because I REALLY want to be on the show too!! You have to live in California. I am thinking about giving my uncles address and just going for it.

That is awesome. Colb and I watch it!! We have watched it since the first season. It is so funny!!! The big balls are the best because people seriously almost break their necks during that part! I hope you guys get on so we can laugh at you during it!!!! ;)

We are major fans at the Helm house. The boys will replay it over and over. We laugh our heads off. I always wonder what kind of nick name they would give me and what kind of crap they would say. It is freaking hilarious and we love it. I am glad you are spending your time wisely.

I didn't know Mandy and Colby were so into "big balls!" I haven't seen it yet, but I'll be sure to watch it when they ask you two idiots to be on it!

This is dennis and I'm addressing this Mandy. First of all, we need to hang out more. Maybe this fall me and ash will come to Dallas?

Second on the list, there would be no laughing if you were to watch me on wipeout. I would conquer all the obstacles (especially the big red balls) with such grace and precision that the only emotions to strike you would be awe and revere. Just wait, you will see.
