Double Dare!

If you don’t recognize the man in the above photo, you are likely not a millennial. That would be Marc Summers, the host of 1990s Nickelodeon game show Double Dare (and also the host of Food Network’s Unwrapped). Nickelodeon is doing a Double Dare at the Super Bowl special, which will tape at the Super Bowl Experience on Thursday and air on Sunday and features Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. During Opening Night, the Double Dare team roamed the floor, with a kid correspondent who had players throw mini footballs into a helmet perched on top of his head or at a Velcro sandwich board.

Also, from the Associated Press via the Chicago Sun-Times:

Many Rams were able to break away from the throngs of onlookers and pretend media on the floor to return to their childhoods. Marcus Peters and Dante Fowler Jr., walked onto a makeshift stage Monday night and played a tossing game for the Nickelodeon show “Double Dare.”

It was a quick respite for the Los Angeles Rams defensive duo, and cornerback Peters appeared to beat linebacker Fowler in the game. Then they were back into the scrum of microphones and TV cameras.

As for the Patriots, well, the lineup was short.

“We’re having them do physical challenges,” said Marc Summers, the long-time host of the program. “But we’re not getting the Patriots to come over. New England has been here many times and they are confident and are a little over this (scene). The Rams are having the time of their lives and enjoying participating in everything.”

A few minutes later, Patriots placekicker Stephen Gostkowski might have invited the wrath of his coach by actually taking part in one of Summers’ activities, a mini-basketball challenge. Talk about being unafraid of a double dare.

Update (12/10): Marc Summers has confirmed on Twitter that Nickelodeon will be filming brand-new episodes of Double Dare in February and March 2019!

Inspired by Nickelodeon's iconic '80s game show of the same name, the new Double Dare TV series is hosted by digital creator and actress Liza Koshy, with original host Marc Summers providing color commentary on the challenges and lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode, and sees a new generation of fans compete in the messiest and most physically challenging competition of their lives. The brand-new Double Dare series premiered this summer and ranks in the top three shows with Kids 6-11 on all TV. The series attracted an average of 1.4 million viewers during its premiere week—making it the most-viewed series on kids’ TV this year.

In an indication of the reboot’s multi-generational appeal, Double Dare ranked number one in its timeslot among kids and teens between ages 2 and 14 on both impressions and share, and the Monday, June 25th premiere was Nick’s best series launch among adults 18-49 in more than five years, according to Nielsen.

Nickelodeon's Double Dare reboot has inspired a spin-off Double Dare Facebook Messenger game, in which players at home can answer answer mind-boggling trivia questions based on a variety of topics, like technology and history, against their friends or other players around the world to win points. Players can Double Dare their opponents to win even more points, or go ahead and take the physical challenge. Users can also keep track of who's on top via the game's leaderboard.

The series has also inspired a Double Dare Live tour of the US, which kicked off this fall.

The original Double Dare premiered on Oct. 6, 1986, on Nickelodeon, and ran from 1986-1993, making it the network’s longest running game show. Marc Summers served as the show’s original host from 1986-1993. Shortly after its debut, Double Dare became one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The series went into syndication in 1988, and was later revived as Super Sloppy Double Dare in 1989. The show also ran on broadcast television as Family Double Dare in 1988, followed by new versions on Nick, including Double Dare 2000. The US version inspired localised series in the UK (on the BBC) and Australia.
