Double Dare Reboot Host

Last month, we found out Nickelodeon was bringing back their beloved game show Double Dare. The game show and several varying iterations that followed it focused on two teams competing to win prizes by answering trivia questions and partaking in super messy physical challenges. The new show will very much have the same format, but it will have a new host that Nickelodeon is bringing in from YouTube stardom.

Liza Koshy, best known for her YouTube channel with over 14 million subscribers, has been named as the Double Dare reboot host. If you’re one of those fans who was hoping Marc Summers would return as host, don’t worry. The former Double Dare host will return as a color commentator during the game show’s physical challenges.

‘Double Dare’ is Coming Back to Nickelodeon

Double Dare Reboot

Nickelodeon continues to dig back into their library of programming from decades ago for shows they can bring back for a new (and old) audience. They previously brought back a bunch of their old programming from that decade for a block called The Splat. Then they decided to make TV movies for both Hey Arnold! and Rocko’s Modern Life (which is coming sometime this year). More recently, they decided to reboot Clarissa Explains It All. But now they’ve turned to their game show programming for some nostalgia.

Nickelodeon has announced their beloved game show Double Dare will return to the cable network for kids with all-new episodes this summer. So brush up on your trivia, and get ready for some slimy, sticky physical challenges. Read More »

Remember Marc Summers? The producer of food network shows like Restaurant: Impossible, most people from my generation probably know Summers better as the host of the Nickelodeon television game show Double Dare (and in later incarnations, Super Sloppy Double Dare, Family Double Dare and Double Dare 2000).
