Notes: April Robles became the first person ever to win both the Qualifier and the Crusher, as well as holding the second best time in the Qualifier, and becoming only the second person ever to cross the Topple Towers. Richard Mendoza became the first person to win both Dizzy Dummies and the Wipeout Zone. Larry had the worst time of anyone who advanced to the Sweeper in Season 1. 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 Doughnut Swing, at the end of the Qualifier, the closets person was Carlos Moreno, only hitting one doughnut.
Notes: This episode was the pilot for the series. 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 second 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'. Andrew Long was the only contestant not mentioned in the Qualifier to make it past the second round.
Notes: Brent Williams became the oldest contestant ever to make it through to the Wipeout Zone, and the second contestant to successfully cross the Tumble Tubes. Kyle Sullivan became the youngest winner thus far, and the third person to win both the Sweeper and the Dreadmill. Jessie Graff became the third contestant to clear the Tumble Tubes, and the final contestant to clear the Big Balls in the first season. Sam Mohan became the fifth contestant to cross the Sucker Punch successfully. Phil Somerville was forced to pull out of the competition due to a shoulder injury, despite holding the fastest Qualifier. The Triple Treat Sweeper consisted of The Crusher, Junior Wrecking Ball, and Icy Cold Blast of Smoke. All but one contestant, Marco Julian made the Bubble Bath Swing.Jessie Graff later competied on American Ninja Warrior 5 but failed on the flying nunchuckes But she was fast enough to become the first woman to ever move on to the semi finals. Phil Somerville also did stunts for Iron Man 3.
