Admit always wanted to be covered in the famous Nickelodeon slime...

Were you a fan of Double Dare on Nickelodeon back in the day?  It's still on!  New episodes are airing still on Nickelodeon, and the iconic host we all loved - MARC SUMMERS is still involved!  Dude still has it all these years, and is the self proclamed "King of Dad Jokes".  (We'll see about that when we meet him...but I digress...)

I remember sitting on the shag carpeting floor in my Grandma's basement, six inches from the warm glow of the TV - locked on Nickelodeon.   

The music would start with that LEGENDARY horns....then Marc Summers would say those three phrases...

On your mark...

Get set...

Double dare was ON!  I would try answering the questions to mold my young 13 year old Riggs mind, and then watch in envy as the contestants would ultimately at some point end up taking the "Physical Challenge" - which would always get someone covered in that infamous green SLIME.  It looked like so much fun, but disgusting at the same time!  If you were anything like me you would always see the people on the show covered in slime, and think to yourself - 'I wonder what that slime is made out of....'

Fast forward 22 years later - Marc Summers is bringing DOUBLE DARE LIVE to the Miller High LIfe Theater TONIGHT (Wednesday 11/7).  

Marc Summers was nice enough to take some spare time out of his busy schedule to talk to Alley and I about the show, and reminisce about Double Dare.  

We got to ask him all the juicy questions like What's HIS favorite Physical Challenge?  Why did they always give away a trip to Orlando when they were already IN Orlando?  And of course - WHAT IS THE DOUBLE DARE SLIME MADE FROM!?  

We asked.  He answered.  

13 year old me was FREAKING OUT...and so will 13 year old YOU.  Check our interview below:
