Nickelodeon 's renewed 'Double Dare' brings back Mark Summers in a new role


An Instagram post has revealed that Nickelodeon is bringing back their game show Double Dare. Double Dare was the channel's first game show and went on the air in 1986.

In the game show, two teams compete to win cash and prizes by answering trivia questions and performing messy stunts known as physical challenges. The show's iconic host was Marc Summers now 66, and Nickelodeon has announced that although there will be a new host, Summers is on the team, reported E Online.com.

The host for the new Double Dare, is actress, YouTube personality, and comedian Liza Koshy. Koshy takes over the host duties once performed by Summers, and the series will be back on Monday, June 25th 2018 on Nickelodeon.

Summers will give a running commentary on the challenges, and his experience and knowledge of the game will be an asset to the show.


"This is a dream that I have been dreaming to live! From watching Double Dare to hosting it!? I am ready for a summer of slime and nose picking,"

Liza Koshy, E Online.com.

Summers expressed his enthusiasm and joy at returning to Double Dare, saying that it would be a privilege and an honor to introduce a new generation to a show that had been so successful in the past.

Summers will be commenting on the now mythical obstacle course featuring such challenges as the human hamster wheel, the classic giant mouth, and the famous Double Dare nose.

Double Dare is Nickelodeon latest revival, as a nostalgic mood seems to be influencing the channel's new lineup. Hey Arnold! and The Jungle Movie have already premiered, and other classic 90's gameshows revivals are in the works for the new season.
