Trivia & Notes[]

  • Jarran Joshu became the first person to throw up on Wipeout.
  • Because Joshu threw up in the Dizzy Dummy round, the Dizzy Dummy had an extra swing to account for the withdrawl.
  • The title of the episode comes from Ariel Tweto, who did not see the pole in front of her and jumps into the water missing it. She notably shouted the line "Where's the Pole?" in confusion.
  • Despite this, Tweto crossed the Big Balls in the Qualifier.
  • Kyle Adler completed the Doughnut Run in the Qualifier. He is also the second competitor to win both the Sweeper and the Wipeout Zone.
