Which do you like better? Been watching American Ninja Warrior lately. Crazy insane obstacle course. Ridiculously difficult. Out of thousands of people, something like only 3 people have ever finished it. But the show sucks me in! It's my new addiction. Anyway, I got to thinking about it. I've seen Wipeout a few times, but I don't normally stick around for a whole episode. I might catch a few minutes of each obstacle, but it's nothing that grips me. The two hosts constantly make lame jokes, often ripping on the contestants themselves. The obstacles all seemed designed to make certain you fall at some point. I don't think I've ever seen anyone make it through without falling once. Wipeout is definitely trying to play up the laughs. Ninja Warrior, Women of Ninja Warrior, & American Ninja Warrior are still insanely hard obstacle courses, but it is possible to get through them perfectly without ever falling. The obstacles are serious challenges, but they're not designed to make you look ridiculous. When somebody falls, the reaction I hear is, "Ohhh!" not, "HaHAHHA!" Well . . . most of the time. The hosts aren't ripping on everyone or spewing a stream of awful jokes. They're just, get this, commenting on the action. Like commentators! It's a fun show and despite the low success rate, I still love to watch.
