Leading up to the Austrian and Swiss debut of 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards,

Race naar de KCA's


The ultimate Nickelodeon battle is breaking loose like never before with Race naar de KCA's season two! Leading up to the slimiest event of the year, two Nickelodeon hosts - one Dutch and one Flemish - will compete against each other in a wide range of funny challenges on their way to the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards in the Netherlands and Belgium! Fans can follow the battle from Sunday 25th February 2018 at 19:00 uur, only on Nickelodeon Nederland and Nickelodeon België! The race to the KCA's is on!

In Race naar de KCA's 2017 presenters Anouk Maas and Stef Poelmans toured in retro Nickelodeon Orange coloured VW camper vans.

Nickelodeon has also announced John Cena will be breaking new ground at the network with a first: Cena will get into character by lending his voice to an original villain named Baron Draxum in the US-English dub of Nickelodeon's brand-new 2D animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, premiering late 2018.


Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ newest villain, Baron Draxum is an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants. Cena’s reoccurring character will appear in the premiere episode and throughout the series, which follows the band of brothers as they encounter new mutants and villains and discover a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City.


Cena is also executive producing Keep It Spotless, Nickelodeon’s new competition series which features kids competing in a variety of physical and paint-filled challenges designed with one goal in mind--to stay as clean as possible. After each game, a 360 degree scanner will measure each teams’ mess to determine just how spotless they really are. The winning team will face The Gauntlet, a multiple-challenge obstacle course, where they can turn their cleanliness into cold hard cash. Keep It Spotless is produced by ITV Entertainment and Hard Nocks South Productions, based on a UK format from Possessed, and scheduled to premiere on Nickelodeon USA later this year.

“John Cena is one of the biggest stars in the world. Kids just love him, which makes him the perfect partner for these upcoming projects,” said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. “His blend of humor and originality brings a fresh voice to Nickelodeon both in front of the camera and behind.”

Said Cena, “I’m thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon on three big projects that run the range of what kids love--slime-filled live events, awesomely cool animation and competition shows where kids take their shot at being the best.”

He continued, “It’s an honor to come back a second time to host the biggest, slimiest party of the year, the Kids’ Choice Awards. Not only do I get to be a cartoon character in the new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, but I get to be a villain, too. And to top it all off, I’m stepping behind the camera to executive produce Nick’s new competition series Keep It Spotless, which gives a whole new meaning to staying clean.”

Nickelodeon’s 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards is produced by Nickelodeon Productions. Elizabeth Kelly, Michael Dempsey, Shelly Sumpter Gillyard and Jay Schmalholz are executive producers.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer, Samurai Jack) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. Veteran animation industry voice actor Rob Paulsen is voice directing the series.

Keep It Spotless is produced by ITV Entertainment and Hard Nocks South Productions, based on a UK format from Possessed. David Eilenberg, David George, John Cena, Jason Carey and Shye Sutherland all serve as executive producers.
