    sporty & fit

    by INWOsuxRED

    I'd think the Wipeout girl would be sporty and fit like Jill. It gives the impression they could actually compete on the show. I don't think Olivia Munn fits that bill at all.

  • April 12, 2011, 10:13 p.m. CST

    I hope her acting career can survive

    by twogunjames

    It's gotta be tough to walk away from any prime time gig. Olivia Munn, while a hottie, is no where near as cool as Jill Wagner.

  • April 12, 2011, 10:14 p.m. CST

    Munn is plenty fit.

    Isn't this the chick from the Blade series?

    by oisin5199

    I thought she was uber-hot in that show. Liked her (and the main villain) better than the guy who played Blade.

  • April 12, 2011, 10:53 p.m. CST

    Hottest chick on network television ...

    by Toe Jam

    But rather annoying and not very funny on "Wipeout." She will be missed only as eye candy. On the gross side, she used to date the creepy, ugly lead singer of one-hit wonder Orgy.

  • April 12, 2011, 11 p.m. CST

    Crap.

    by Cheif Brody

    I really dug her...but it is a thankless job...(essentially a step above being a "case model" on Deal or No Deal)...but Jill was fun and added a lot. Of curves! <p> I think they should make her run the course...in a bikini...on her final show. Does Neilsen have numbers that go that high?

  • April 13, 2011, 12:27 a.m. CST

    She makes me want to punch my wife in the face

    by SydBarretsMyDad

    not really, but holy shit shes hot.

  • April 13, 2011, 12:34 a.m. CST

    Liked her in Splinter...

    by Andrew Coleman

    Low budget monster film that was pretty cool. She was very real and likable in that movie. So good luck to her. She'll be missed. So does that mean Perfect Couples got canceled? Olivia Munn is just too hot, she'll find something else to do.

  • April 13, 2011, 1:10 a.m. CST

    sunovabitch!

    by ciroslive

    She was the best of this show! Jon Henson's worst mistake was leaving E! Did he think he was the next Greg Kinnear?! WRONG!!!

  • April 13, 2011, 2:53 a.m. CST

    I want to wear her like a hat.

    by DonLogan

    a stetson to be precise.

  • April 13, 2011, 7:43 a.m. CST

    munn? really?

    by JamesT

    Never really understood the fascination with this chick. Maybe its me. Sure, she's easy on the eyes, but for me she is missing something.

  • April 13, 2011, 8:01 a.m. CST

    re: jamest "for me she is missing something"

    by DonLogan

    what, like a dick? har de har har.

  • April 13, 2011, 8:07 a.m. CST

    She's an annoying bint..

    by Billyeveryteen

    Munn is way hotter.

  • April 13, 2011, 8:23 a.m. CST

    I'm with James

    by OldDickLemon

    Olivia Munn is "Sara Jessica Parker" hot, and "Jenny McCarthy" funny.

  • April 13, 2011, 9:24 a.m. CST

    Olivia Munn has dead eyes...

    by kidicarus

    She reminds me of a character from Final Fantasy: Advent Children. But banging body nonetheless.

  • April 13, 2011, 10:04 a.m. CST

    I loved her in those Mercury commercials.

    by Jeffrey

  • April 13, 2011, 10:10 a.m. CST

    She's a hottie. This is probably a good move for her.

    by vorlonkosh

    Hard to be taken seriously acting-wise as a game show host.

  • April 13, 2011, 10:54 a.m. CST

    Munn's eyes

    by v3d

    "...she's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces."

  • April 13, 2011, 10:57 a.m. CST

    Apparently Perfect Couples was supposed to be Portland

    by v3d

    The same Portland of Portlandia fame. That never came across. And it was never funny. To bad Munn's spot is taken on Attack of the Show. I guess there's still a place in the food service industry.

  • April 13, 2011, 11:20 a.m. CST

    Surprised

    by dogrobber

    Having seen a couple of episodes of the U.K. version, I really believe Ms. Wagner (with the other hosts) makes the U.S. version better. Kind of surprised that anyone would leave a show like 'Wipeout' unless they already had another job lined up. I'm only basing that on (what I think/guess is) the show's shooting schedule - isn't it one of those shows that shoots a season's worth of episodes in a just couple of weeks, then other versions are shot for different markets? Short of signing up for a new ongoing show on a competing network it should leave plenty of time to work on other projects. Also, isn't the ongoing exposure/publicity to the public a good thing?

  • April 13, 2011, 11:23 a.m. CST

    That's too bad, I really like her on Wipeout

    by jim

    I find her interviews with some of the contestants very funny. A nice mix of attentive host combined with a healthy amount of fear being so close to some of those whackos. Her reactions to the wipeouts are great. She does seem genuinely horrified at some of the hard hits; at other times she's just laughing at them. But that's OK. The old adage of "it's funny because it happened to someone else" is doubly true because those people volunteered to do this. Plus she's hot.

  • April 13, 2011, 11:47 a.m. CST

    How much of her time could that show possibly take?

    by Chewtoy

    Leaving out the editing of it all afterward, how much time could it possibly take to film the actual competitions? I can't imagine it takes anywhere near the commitment as doing a real show that shoots a new script every week. I would guess that they run off an entire summer's worth of episodes inside of a few weeks and then are done until the next order comes in. That would have to be one of the cushiest jobs to fit a larger career around. Ah well, I'm sure they can find someone to match her, as hot as she is.

  • April 13, 2011, 12:04 p.m. CST

    Does she actually ever see or talk to the other hosts?

    by Bass Ackwards

    The Johns seem like they come to set and film their stuff afterwards. Wagner has to stand out there on her own for however long it takes to film these through the whole competition and all to only provide the occasssional aside. It seems like a lot of time spent for 5 minutes of being on camera, I could see why she would want to leave.

  • April 13, 2011, 1:07 p.m. CST

    ain't it stupid news

    by Wookie_1995

    *yawn* this show is still on...huh stuff like firefly is cancelled in a heartbeat but this shit gets to be shown still?

    I'm guessing she is in a pilot that might get picked up?

    by Andy_Dufresne

  • April 13, 2011, 5:44 p.m. CST

    And yes....she made me think fondly about Mercury's for a time.

    by Andy_Dufresne

  • April 13, 2011, 6:33 p.m. CST

    She's so hot I'd fuck her

    by Itchy

    in front of my grandma.

  • April 13, 2011, 10:41 p.m. CST

    Ah well, she is cute, personality wise.

    by mistergreen

    I haven't seen an episode of 'wipe out' this season though. It must be against a good show.

  • April 14, 2011, 7:57 a.m. CST

    Winter Wipe Out killed me...

    by Zombieflicker

    She was wearing a jacket the whole time. That sucks. She was pretty close to being my perfect woman, looks and personality. Oh well, maybe in 20 years I can buy a robot that looks like her.

  • April 14, 2011, 9:44 a.m. CST

    Jill Wagner quitting to concentrate on her acting career.

    by scriptgirl_nipples

    Means she'll be appearing in some trashy cheap horseshit getting her tits out. Sounds Good Man!

    Olivia Munn is unlikeable

    by JackDonkey

    But extremely attractive

  • April 14, 2011, 8:44 p.m. CST

    I liked Wipeout better...

    by Audio_of_Being

    ..when it was called MXC. No amount of T&A will help it achieve that level.

  • June 16, 2011, 11:05 p.m. CST

    I wrote a film for her

    by twogunjames

    It's a cool action flick that would see her using a lot of firearms. Because she is a shooter in real life, and I would very much like to see her shine in a tough chick role.

  • June 16, 2011, 11:48 p.m. CST

    are you guys high?

    by South_park300

    If you guys would stop jerkin it for a sec, you would notice that nowhere does it say or SHOW Olivia Munn. it's Vanessa Minnillo

  • June 16, 2011, 11:49 p.m. CST

    oh, nevermind

    by South_park300

    apparently those olivia munn are replies from April? ugh, wtf

  • June 16, 2011, 11:49 p.m. CST

    Way to ruin the show!!

    by Ka Dargo

    She was the main reason I watched. Beautiful and a perfect fit body! Wish they would stop with the producers hitting a button knocking people into the water and mud. It was better when the person had a chance making across an obstacle based on their physical skills.

  • June 16, 2011, 11:54 p.m. CST

    It's not like she gets a lot of air time. Jon Henson IS the show.

  • June 16, 2011, 11:59 p.m. CST

    Splinter was a great little indie horror flick

    by D.Vader

    That was a total shocker. And damn, Jill Wagner is a hottie. And she went to NC State! Damn, she would have been a fun chick to party with while I was at UNC.

  • June 17, 2011, 12:08 a.m. CST

    Why are we talking about Olivia Munn?

    by WhatTheHellHappenedToMe

    Did you racists just see an Asian chick and run with it?

  • June 17, 2011, 12:27 a.m. CST

    Because Munn was the rumored new host

    A while back.

    Whatever happened to her?

    by jim

    although, it's not her, it's a younger version that I guess does the onscreen stuff while she's busy with all the blessings brought about by youtube fame.
