On this cat-inspired episode of WipeoutTHURSDAY, JULY 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), 24 contestants have the purrrfect opportunity to claim the $50,000 grand prize, but first they must scratch and claw their way through a series of obstacles. The Qualifier starts with everything a cat would hate -- a ride over water on Wipeout's Jet Skis, followed by a tipsy turn into the drink on Fail Boat

 
A contestant takes a fall from the Fail Boat, which a cat would definitely hate.

After seeing how the cat goes meow in the Wipeout Farmhouse, the contestants are then sent on to the Miami Pound Machine, after which only six will get the chance to tackle Wipeout City's Window Washers
 
Three of these contenders will sharpen their claws on the Wipeout Zone, but only one fur ball will be going home with the grand prize, while the rest will be thrown out with the litter empty pawed.
