Waivers don't apply if the station can be found guilty of negligence. You can't protect yourself from everything. Like someone couldn't sign away their personal rights and be sold into slavery because slavery is illegal, or become a prostitute and so on.
So, since negligence is illegal, if it can be proved, the waiver is meaningless. For example, they could be found guilty of criminal negligence if they failed ot research the possibilty of water intoxication, or failed to disclose that informatin to the contestants.
Just like if you leave your car at a garage for repair and they say they are not responsible fo rtheft or damage, and the car gets stolen because they left the keys in the car overnight, they are liable.
