Auditioning for Wipeout Today...Should I Wear My Bindings?
I am auditioning/interviewing for Wipeout today! I know I gotta be a spaz, so I was thinking of wearing my AA bindings and a life vest (Coast Guard Approved, of course). Any tips to make sure I get on the show?

Bindings for SURE, Maybe even carry a Handle with you!

wakeworld 08-27-2012 12:22 PM

Good idea. Bringing the handle. I really want to be the first person to winch across that Wipeout set!!

Here is what their email said, so I need some good adjectives...

"We will be asking you some questions to get to know you. We will be asking you to describe yourself. Think up some great adjectives you can use. Fun and Outgoing are not original! We hear them all the time. Remember... We love memorable and funny! You want to be the person who America is talking about on the next day when they say, "Hey did you see that (fill in the blank) guy/girl on WIPEOUT yesterday?!?" (Oh and "the winner" ... not so creative...keep thinking!)"

...and a pair of your CIRE board shorts.....not the ones with the shredded a$$.

wakeworld 08-27-2012 1:07 PM

They're sort of Cire's...got my WakeWorld boardies on!

Make sure to yell "It's not as easy as it looooooooooooks" as you fall 20 feet or so into the water! My wife and I love that show! Let us know if you make it to the show! Keep us posted!

You should also tell them that you go and get water boarded on a daily basis. so this course will nothing out of the ordinary. May help you get in, i could imagine John n John the commentators nick naming you the water boarder. Could give you some more air time!

I would also wear a cup over my pants and a mouthpiece

I had to fill out more paperwork than I did when I went parachuting, but the lady said "I'm pretty much in!" Thanks for all the help. I did bring in the boots, vest, boardshorts and handle and represented the sport!

hawkeye7708 08-27-2012 8:51 PM

That's awesome, Dave! Let us know when it airs!!

wakeworld 08-27-2012 11:50 PM

Seriously, Jill was actually funny and hot. Vanessa just stands there and laughs.
