A woman who took part in a competition event last fall has filed suit against stunt performer and well-known "Jackass" Steve-O, claiming she was "injured on a wet stage" during the taping of the upcoming game show.

Suzanne Ohman was the last of 13 scheduled performers in the 12-hour competition being taped as part of "Killer Karaoke," the truTV network show based on a British series, "Sing if You Can." In her suit, filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court against Steve-O (nee Stephen Glover), Ohman indicates she "was fatigued and fell on the stage, which had been made slippery because of a substance put on it to make it shine, fracturing one knee and leg and also suffering muscle injuries," according to City News Service.

The woman is officially suing for "loss of consortium," and also names producers Zodiak
USA and Argyle Productions in her suit.

"Killer Karaoke" is set to air early this year. We assume no one is actually anticipated to die in the process. Anyone want to hedge bets on if this will get settled out of court?
