Carlos PenaVega to Host Nickelodeon Game Show
Move over Alex Trebek and Pat Sajak! Big Time Rush member and handsome hunk Carlos Pena, who recently married 'Spy Kids' actress Alexa Vega and now goes by the combined name Carlos PenaVega, is remaining in the Nickelodeon family. The singer has been hired to host a new Nick game show executive produced by Ryan Seacrest.
The show, called 'Webheads,' sounds like good times for the millennials that will both watch it on TV and compete on the show. Here's the elevator pitch. It's a competition series revolving around kid contestants who compete in challenges based on viral videos.
Darn! We were hoping for a reboot of 'Double Dare,' which was a chocolate and whipped cream soaked mess. (In the best possible way, though!)
The network has ordered 40 episodes of the half-hour show, which will air in the summer. It was initially called 'Go Viral,' but that title has since been swapped out.
For his part, PenaVega is stoked about his new gig.
"I grew up on Nickelodeon game shows and always dreamed of being a contestant,” said PenaVega to The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm excited to be doing something fun and unique that captures the heart and slime of Nick."
The heart and the slime – those are two critical elements of any Nick show!
PenaVega shared a shot of himself on what looks like the show's set on Instagtram. See it below.
