A 1990s-themed trivia game will pair the Nickelodeon game show's original host, Marc Summers, with HQ host Scott Rogowsky.

The game will include Double Dare trivia questions and moments familiar to fans of the original series that ran between 1986 to 1993, including physical challenges and toss-ups.


The HQ Trivia game will end with one contestant winning a cash prize of $50,000 (USD) and chance to appear on Nickelodeon's all-new Double Dare, plus Nickelodeon is promising a potential live sliming on the app, too, the companies said on Wednesday, June 20.


The game will be available on popular quizzing app - at 9 p.m. EDT on Sunday, June 24. The app is available to download for free for iOS and Android devices via the Apple App Store and Google Play.

“Some shows are format driven and others are host driven. HQ is both, and Scott Rogowsky definitely holds it down for all hosts out there,” Summers, 66, told PEOPLE. “The game is fun, and because of his amazing personality and quick wit, sometimes I don’t even care if I answer questions correctly! Scott is a superstar and I am honored to share the stage this Sunday, and give away lots of money and a huge Double Dare prize!”

Adds Rogowsky, 33: “As a bona fide 90s kid raised by TV, Marc Summers was nothing short of a deity in my pre-teen eyes — a god of wisdom and slime. I never could have imagined growing up to become a game show host myself, let alone getting this opportunity to share the screen with my childhood hero on Sunday night’s big money edition of HQ. I’m ready to take the physical challenge.”

Sunday’s cash prize will be a whopping $50,000, and one lucky player will win a Double Dare VIP experience, complete with a trip to L.A. for a taping of Nickelodeon’s rebooted kids game show.

The messiest game show on TV returns for a brand-new series, the all-new Double Dare, premieres Monday, June 25 at 8:00pm ET/PT, only on Nickelodeon USA!

Hosted by digital creator and actress Liza Koshy, Nickelodeon's Double Dare revival will see a new generation of fans compete in the messiest and most physically challenging competition of their lives. Bringing together new fans and the iconic game show’s millennial audience from the ‘90s, original series host Marc Summers returns to give color commentary on the challenges, lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode.

Series guests will include Jamie Lynn Spears, Rico Rodriguez, Chloe Kim and Lindsey Vonn.

Leading up to the debut of the brand-new series of Double Dare, NickSplat will air a selection of classic episodes from across the Double Dare franchise every night at 11:00pm ET/PT between Monday 18th - Sunday 24th June 2018.

Nickelodeon’s new Double Dare will also spill off of the screen and into the real world this summer, connecting to fans both old and new in a series of forthcoming location-based live experiences. There will be opportunities for fans to play Double Dare in on-the-ground versions at VidCon 2018 in Anaheim, Calif., and all summer long at Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America in Minneapolis.
