Nickelodeon and HQ Trivia are joining forces to celebrate the reboot of Double Dare.
Original Double Dare host Marc Summers will join HQ Trivia host Scott Rogowsky for a special, ‘90s-themed version of the app game on June 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
The episode will relive Double Dare show moments including physical challenges, toss-ups, Double Dare questions and more leading up to the reboot’s debut on June 25 at 8 p.m.
The new version of the series, which ran from 1986-1993, will be hosted by Liza Koshy, while Summers, who serves as an executive director, will return to provide color commentary.
“Some shows are format driven and others are host driven,” Summers said in a statement. “HQ is both, and Scott Rogowsky definitely holds it down for all hosts out there…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!”
To build excitement, HQ will send out push notifications before the mobile game begins, letting players know the stakes will be higher. One lucky winner will receive a $50,000 cash prize, along with a Double Dare VIP experience that includes a trip to Los Angeles to appear on a Double Dare episode as part of the “challenge crew” which rolls out the obstacle course, a meet and greet with Summers and Koshy, and, of course, a sliming.
To keep the momentum going, on Monday’s HQ Trivia Rogowsky will announce the winner of Sunday’s game, and celebrate the premiere of Double Dare by doubling Monday’s show winnings from $5,000 to $10,000.
“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,” Rogowsky said in a statement. “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.”
