The Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2019 will feature two celebrity teams, Team Slime Slammers, with captain Lindsey Vonn and Team Orange Crush captained by Rob Gronskowski running five different challenges to see who the top team is. The challenges, listed below, will include the All-Star Gauntlet, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader Bungee Dance Challenge, Pillow Fight Fight Night, Summer Smash N’ Splash and Super Slime Showdown. We are Team Slime Slammers over here and look forward to seeing each team compete.
The Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports 2019 are hosted by Michael Strahan, and while filmed already will air on Nickelodeon on Saturday, Aug. 10th.
The slime-filled celebration also featured two star-studded teams going head to head in the first-ever Kids’ Choice Sports Championship–a mega-competition made up of five grand-scale, sports-themed challenges that spanned the entire show. Team Slime Slammers was captained by Lindsey Vonn with Alysa Liu, Kel Mitchell, Shaun White, Trae Young and Nyjah Huston. Team Orange Crunch was led by Rob Gronkowski with David Dobrik, Laurie Hernandez, Olivia Moultrie, Ben Simmons and P.K. Subban.
The Kids’ Choice Sports Championship challenges were:
All-Star Gauntlet: Working to build a 6-foot-tall foam finger puzzle, the teams were tasked with throwing pies through basketball nets, crawling through a batting cage, catching giant fish in a sea of slippery critters, knocking down puzzle pieces held by giant Michael Strahan targets and climbing a 30-foot wall.
Summer Smash N’ Splash: One lucky kid from the audience joined each team for this wet and slimy challenge. Each team swam in a pool of balls to find the volleyballs needed to hit targets that triggered a slime shower which doused their respective kid.
Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader Bungee Dance Challenge: Each team captain’s dance knowledge was put to the test by game show host John Cena. Tethered together via a bungee rope, the captains had to reach the buzzer and perform their best dance moves with each question answered correctly with the help of brainy fifth graders, Jamir and Saya.
Pillow Fight Fight Night: David Dobrik and Kel Mitchell faced off in the ring for a pillow fight like no other. The challengers’ pillow-fighting abilities were judged for style, accuracy and power.
Super Slime Showdown: In the final challenge, team captains used stationary bikes to pump out slime that their teammates had to catch in order to fill slime tanks at the finish line. The first team that filled their tank and slimed themselves won the championship.
