Councillor Tate braved the sliming but Commonwealth Games and Tourism Minister Kate Jones backed out, sending her six-year-old son, Tom Cronin, to receive Nickelodeon's highest honour in her place. However, Ms. Jones has promised she would undergo the green slime treatment at the Slime Cup tryouts on Sunday.
Tourism and Events Queensland have just slimed a deal with Nickelodeon to help promote the state.
“We are hoping to secure more opportunities and events for family fun action for Queensland,” Ms Jones said.
Cr Tate said he would be at the Slime Cup to ensure Ms Jones underwent the goo treatment.
“Good clean, fun is what the Gold Coast is all about, today is a bit green but it doesn’t matter,” he said.
For SLIME CUP 2017, Nickelodeon will select 15 teams of superstar besties from two live tryouts (Gold Coast on Sunday 9th April 2017; New South Wales on Sunday 23rd April 2017) and online auditions to compete in the Slime Arena and take on a series of larger-than-life inflatable challenges that will test their stamina, strength and stomachs to determine the final four teams. The finale episode will see these four teams compete on an all-new inflatable obstacle extravaganza to win the ultimate prize, the 2017 Nickelodeon SLIME CUP trophy.
Kids who think they have got what it takes to be Nickelodeon’s next Slime Superstars can go to www.slimecup.com.au to register for the Gold Coast and Sydney live tryout days or submit their best audition video up until Tuesday, 25th April 2017.
Hosted by Kristy Best and two U.S. based Nickelodeon stars yet to be announced, SLIME CUP will premiere at 5.30pm on Friday, 30 June 2017 and will feature expanded digital content, including the chance for kids to create their own SLIME CUP course online and opportunities for bespoke integration across multiple platforms.
