Q: You used to say you’d never attempt the “Wipeout” obstacle course yourself. Now that you’re back on the show, how do you feel about that?

A: I feel exactly the same! I think it’s because no one has offered me $50,000 to go through it. That’s a motivating factor (since that’s the amount each episode’s winner gets).

You might think, “It’s all about the money ... that’s why these people are doing this,” but in my interviews with them, that’s one of the questions I always ask. And I get a lot of answers along the lines of, “No, my kid dared me to do it. That’s why I’m here.” I don’t have a kid daring me to do it yet, but that could happen in the next 20 years.

Q: Even with that, is it enjoyable for you when the “Wipeout” course is changed, with new and inevitably messy hurdles for the contestants to get past?

A: Absolutely. I love that they’ve come up with little characters this season, “Wipeout” mascots like Ballsy and Ballsy’s cousin, plus Octopushy. There are so many cool things they’re doing.

Q: What did you hear from “Wipeout” fans while you were off the show?

A: I went to ABC for a meeting, and I got on an elevator with this guy and we just said, “Hi.” And when he got off at his floor, he turned around and said, “By the way, I don’t watch the show anymore because you’re not on it.” It was a little weird, because usually, I don’t think people know who I am.
