"The Jump" Is The Most Enjoyably Stupid Show You Can Watch This Winter

Warning: This post does feature Louie Spence.

Think you have to resort to Netflix to get through this harsh bitter winter? You're totally, totally wrong.

The Jump is back on Channel 4. Before we move on I should clarify that The Jump is terrible television, but also great television. Why?

It features celebs like Louis Spence and Dom from Gogglebox risking their lives to do winter sports.

Why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There's a lot of weirdness too, like when Louis Spence did this dance to scare Mike Tindall.

The celebs then go head-to-head, and the loser of each round has to go risk going down a ski jump.

Why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The ski jump has been much hyped. The ads plugging the show suggested that the jump would be INTENSE.

These adverts have been on television every 15 minutes.

They keep showing us the ski jump they will face as well. Just look at how TERRIFYING the jump looks.

Also, terrifyingly green.

Also, terrifyingly green.

They rack up the tension even further as the celeb boards the jump by showing us their HEART RATE.

151 BEATS A MINUTE. Is that high? That's a bit high, isn't it? Is it?

GO GO OH WAIT NO. That was a bit disappointing.

Well, that was a little bit of a disappointment, but it was Dom after all.

And at least his wife Steph is pleased.

Go on, have a drink.

How about J.B. Gill? He used to be in JLS.

You know JLS. The band that wasn't One Direction.And just look at that heart rate. A sexy 116bpm.

"Let's just get back together. We should have never broke up. They're telling me. That my heart won't beat again. Won't beat again. It's killllllling me."

Well.... errr... ermmmm....... yeah.......... I suppose.

Let's be honest, his jump was just a bit impressive.

This has to be more impressive. Please. Oh look, our prayers have been answered. Welcome, Phil Tufnell.

Look at his heartbeat. It is at a slightly lower bpm. #Tactics

I've fallen off bigger kerbs #TheJump

How about Mike Tindall? THIS HAS TO BE GOOD.

The Jump / Twofour Productions / Channel 4

OK... So that's moderately impressive.

Those guys on the jump did a brilliant job of making that scary skeleton and jump look easy. Can't wait to see how the girls do. #TheJump
