In exciting news for gameshow TV fans, the incredibly popular Wipeout is set to return to screens across the country.

The new one-off special is expected to be aired next week and feature a thrilling obstacle course called the ASX.

The show that broadcast in the mid-2000s before being pulled was a reality competition, where contestants try to navigate an extreme obstacle course that has been designed to provoke an unprecedented number of crashes, face plants and wipeouts, with one competitor taking home a $50,000 prize each week.

In this year’s edition, stockbrokers and finance people will try and navigate a special pop-up course in a stock exchange where they’ll try and save the portfolio’s they manage.

This comes after 60 billion dollars was wiped out of the Australia Share market today amid fears that a recession could be knocking on the door.

“We don’t want to reveal too much ahead of the screening, but it should be pretty exciting,” a producer.

“In a new feature, the state of the art obstacle course, which we’ve titled the Bull Run, will feature homeless people and charity muggers who the stockbrokers will have to dodge as well.”

“And before you ask, no we won’t be testing for performance-enhancing drugs.”

Confirmation of the airing date is expected to be provided in the coming days.
