Nickelodeon Sets Two-Week Sneak Peek for 'Paradise Run' (Exclusive)
Nickelodeon has scheduled a two-week sneak peek at competition series Paradise Run, featuring several of the network's stars and their biggest fans.
The series, which has its season-three premiere at 7 p.m. Monday, finds the teams competing in new challenges as the talent plays for charity and their fans try to win a paradise vacation.
Shot in Hawaii, this season includes contestants sliding down a new 45-foot volcano-themed water slide and riding on a new 700-foot zip line. Some of the new challenges include Volca-Nose, in which teams climb up a 50-foot slimy slide to plug five oozing nostrils of a baby volcano; Sandwich Islands, in which teams race against time by running across water mats with oversized ingredients to create giant sandwiches and deliver them to hangry guests; and Crazy Bat Shoot, in which teams use giant slingshots to fling rubber bats at their teammates across the lagoon.
"This sneak peek of the new season of Paradise Run was designed to debut our all new challenges along with our 45-foot manmade volcano named Pele [after the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes]," executive producer Scott A. Stone said. "Getting 17 Nick stars to Hawaii do 'the run' was a logistical feat, but totally worth it because it takes the comedy from a '10' to 'off the charts.' It's as fun to watch as it was to make."
The Nickelodeon stars taking part include Jack Griffo, Kira Kosarin, Addison Riecke, Audrey Whitby and Diego Velazquez from The Thundermans; Breanna Yde, Jade Pettyjohn, Aidan Miner, Lance Lim and Ricardo Hurtado from School of Rock; Benjamin Flores Jr., Thomas Kuc, Cree Cicchino and Madisyn Shipman from Game Shakers; and Lizzy Greene, Kyla-Drew Simmons and Casey Simpson from Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.
The series is hosted by Daniella Monet (Victorious).
Nickelodeon previously aired one week of sneak peeks for season two of the show, which was ranked No. 1 in its time slot among kids six to 11 for its first two seasons.
Paradise Run is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment's Stone, producer of Nickelodeon's Emmy-nominated BrainSurge, and a creator of the classic Nick game show Legends of the Hidden Temple. Marcus Fox also serves as executive producer.
