Before the start of the Dizzy Dummy, the six remaining contestants were given a Mexican lunch, and Jacob Mann quit before the start of the second game due to stomach dizziness, making him the fifth competitor to quit on Wipeout. James and Willa Simpton became the first married couple to compete on Wipeout. Richard Gale was the only one to make part of the Dirty Balls. The Wipeout Zone was quite different, they replaced the waterfall wall with the rope wall, and the Killer Surf was an 'Your Choice' theme, you could either go on a sled, matress or on your back.

Larry, Brittany, and Calvin did worse than Colleen Smith, but she didn't advance, in a situation reminiscent to Erwin Milan in episode 6. Michael Bertrand became the sixth competitor to quit on Wipeout. The Sucker Punch had a twist this episode, instead of boxing gloves, they were replaced with shoes and called the 'Butt Kicker'. No one made the Block Swing, at the end of the Qualifier, the closets person was Carlos Moreno, only hitting one block.

  • Notes: Thirty-two contestants competed in this episode, with sixteen advancing to the Sweeper. After eight contestants were eliminated in the Sweeper, the round simply ended. If the episodes are classed chronologically, Nick Ballard "The Football Player" holds the fastest time ever on the Qualifier, and became the first contestant to clear the Big Balls. Christian Readyhoff "The Rocket Scientist" holds the fastest time ever in the Wipeout Zone, and becomes the first contestant ever to finish the Wipeout Zone faster than the Qualifier. He was also the only one not to crawl on the Blastoff (he WALKED to victory instead). Although she ran out of time, "Pro Cheerleader" Katie Mayfield still finished the Wipeout Zone. She is a cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens, and is the first person ever to have a perfect Qualifier. Daniel Drew "The Hot Suace Guy" and "Suddenly Slim" Mich Rohner were the first and second contestants to slide down Human Pinball perfectly. Later, Christian Readyhoff "The Rocket Scientist" became the third and final contestant to cross the Leap of Faith successfully. Although not shown in the episode, Eddie Shapiro was the first contestant ever to clear the Sucker Punch. There are 8 more contestants than normal Wipeout (2008 U.S. game show)s. Scott "Face-plant" Kessler nearly missed the landing platform after jumping off the Spinner, but he climbed up, resulting in the loss of "Suddenly Slim" Mich Rohner. He also face-planted onto the second Big Ball during his run on the Qualifier, causing him to bleed. Karla Guy was the competitor to have the remaining distance for the Leap of Faith, which is, say, 75'.
