Nickelodeon’s locally produced kids’ reality television series, Slime Cup, returns early next month.
Season 4 sees new hosts with Daniella Perkins and Owen Joyner (Knight Squad) and Aussie actress Miah Madden (Crash the Bash).
12 teams of kids, scouted at live talent auditions around Australia and New Zealand, will compete on slimy, inflatable obstacle courses.
Episodes one to three of Slime Cup sees all 12 teams tackle a SpongeBob SquarePants inspired course, as a nod to Nickelodeon’s nautical world underwater. Then in episodes four and five, the semi-finals, remaining teams find themselves up against hanging jellyfish and slippery Slime holes.
In the grand finale, premiering Monday 5th August, the fastest two teams go head to head in an epic challenge at Sea World on the Gold Coast for their chance to achieve glory as the official Slime Cup champions!
Season four features a brand new indoor arena with a layout guaranteed to have competitors dripping in Slime – a Nickelodeon rite of passage!
A sneak peek at this season’s teams:
Wollongong-based Bowtiful Besties Georgia and Harper love JoJo Siwa and superhero sibling Phoebe from Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans. Not afraid of a challenge, Harper loves surfing and competing at Nippers where she won age champion for the last two summers. Her cousin Georgia’s netball and dancing skills will come in handy for the obstacle courses.
All-boy team Pat & Bob, Daniel and James, are dedicated SpongeBob SquarePants fans. James claims to be the “living embodiment of SpongeBob” and the pair have ambitions to become comic makers, directly influenced by the love of their favourite television program. Their passion and shenanigans make them a team to watch.
The Thunder Fam are energetic siblings from Auckland, New Zealand who love to make each other laugh. Libee has hopes of becoming a TV star, while Nate’s dream is to represent his country as a professional rugby player for the All Blacks. The team’s adorable plush mascots, a kiwi and a sheep, made the trip to Sydney with the Thunder Fam to cheer them on.
5.30pm Mondays from 1st July at 5.30pm on Nickelodeon.
