Nickelodeon’s The Splat–the network’s programming block dedicated to Nick’s legendary library of hits from the ‘90s and 2000s–will salute the 30th anniversary of Double Dare by bringing back original host Marc Summers for the first time in 16 years for a special live edition of the iconic game show on Friday, July 22, during San Diego Comic-Con 2016.
Streamed on Facebook Live from the The Splat’s Facebook page beginning at 9:30 p.m. (PT), fans can watch the red and blue teams test their trivia knowledge and compete in a host of physical challenges including the Wringer, Down the Hatch, the Human Hamster Wheel and the Double Dare Nose from the legendary obstacle course.
