'Wipeout' Gameshow Contestant Dies After Completing Obstacle Course

Wipeout

A contestant on Wipeout has died after completing the game show's obstacle course, authorities and sources close to the production said on Friday. Paramedics were then called and the man was taken to a local hospital, but he later passed away.

Production sources told Fox News the contestant required medical attention after he completed the course on Wednesday and medical personnel tended to him on-site. The team consists of two paramedics, two set medics, a paramedic coordinator, and a safety producer.

The reboot, which follows the three rounds and a three-stage, obstacle course "consisting of multiple strategy and decision points created to further challenge and wear out the stamina" of participants, was picked up by TBS earlier this year, and is scheduled to air sometime in 2021.

TBS reacted to the tragedy in a statement obtained by E!
