LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- ABC said Wednesday it has picked up its U.S. competition series "Wipeout" for a seventh season.

Each episode will showcase 24 contestants of "all shapes and sizes" as they compete in an extreme obstacle course, the network said in a news release.

Winners from each episode will be brought together at the end of the season for a Tournament of Champions, during which they will compete for the title of Ultimate Wipeout Champion.

"We are always looking for ways to keep the show fresh and exciting. This year, we are amping up the competition with a season long tournament of champions, with the winner from each episode returning to compete against the other winners in an epic battle for the title of Wipeout Champion," Matt Kunitz, the show's creator and executive producer, said in a statement.

Serving as hosts on the series will be John Anderson, John Henson and Jill Wagner.
