Nickelodeon’s hit competition series will feature a slew of network stars and their fans competing for charity and a vacation, respectively!
Nickelodeon USA has scheduled a two-week sneak peek of the third season of the network’s hit competition series Paradise Run, featuring several of the network’s stars and their biggest fans.
The series, which has its season-three premiere tonight, Monday, November 13 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT), finds the teams competing in new challenges as Nickelodeon 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 told The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
“Going back to Hawaii to shoot Paradise Run for a third time was awful! Who wants to get paid to have the best time ever in one of the most beautiful places in the world?! KIDDING,” Daniella Monet (Victorious), the host of Paradise Run joked with Just Jared Jr.
She adds, “Seriously, I’m so excited for everyone to see brand-new episodes of Paradise Run – we had some pretty hilarious moments! The challenges are insane, we welcome a brand-new cast member, Pele the Volcano, and the Nickelodeon stars really brought their A-game this season.”
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.
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.
Following the network’s two-week sneak-peek, Nick USA will fully debut Paradise Run season three in 2018.
