Australia: Nickelodeon SLIME CUP 2017 Features Duo From Dapto, NSW In The Finals

Scrambling through a sticky, slimy obstacle course earned two New South Wales teens their 15 minutes of fame with a spot on national television Friday night!

Best friends Jordyn Allan and Alysha Paul, both aged 13 and from Dapto, NSW, didn’t think Nickelodeon Australia & New Zealand would accept their application for SLIME CUP 2017, but luckily for the girls, they did, and now they’re onto the finals!

The pair, known as the Dapdoids, were one of 15 teams selected from around Australia and New Zealand, much to the surprise of their classmates and Jordyn’s mum.

“It was a nerve-wracking experience,” Alysha told the Illawarra Mercury.

“[The slime] was really cold and some of it was chunky. When it dried it was really gross actually and really smelly.”

Jordan said the most embarrassing part of the sticky obstacle course was being interviewed by the host, Kristy Best.

“What we were saying probably didn’t make sense and we were acting crazy,” she laughed.

Both encouraged other brave young-guns to have a crack at television, Jordyn advising to “give it your all”.

The Dapdoids will be one of five teams to tough out a new inflatable obstacle course extravaganza in the final round to win the ultimate prize, the 2017 Nickelodeon SLIME CUP trophy.
