Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards LOS ANGELES 2016
The slime-filled celebration featured five grand-scale, sports-themed challenges:
CC Sabathia and Von Miller zipped their way through the KCS 500, an obstacle-ridden race around the perimeter of the entire arena, on high-speed pedal racing carts;
Tony Hawk and Jagger Eaton went head to head in a skateboard challenge and rolled down an epic 65-foot long ramp inside slime-filled Zorb balls in the Human Bowling Challenge;
Victor Espinoza, Emanuel Sanders, Nikki and Brie Bella, Andre Drummond and Jamie Anderson took competitive eating to a new level in the Key Slime Pie Challenge;
In the Smash Mountain challenge, Rob Gronkowski and fellow footballer Russell Wilson battled obstacles, scaled a nearly vertical 65-foot ramp and wielded sledgehammers to smash their way to the Kids’ Choice Sports medal;
And teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson faced off in the Big Slime Ballers Challenge, a three-point contest where each shot triggered slime-filled nets above kid rebounders.
Other show moments included a glitter-filled celebratory entrance at the top of the show by J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Richard Jefferson, Tristan Thompson, and Dahntay Jones of the Cleveland Cavaliers toting their 2016 NBA Championship trophy; a dance-off featuring Rob Gronkowski going toe to toe against Ciara; the hockey-themed Celebrity Headshot with LA Kings Tyler Toffoli and Nick Cannon; and, of course, multiple slimings. Michael Strahan, and stars of Nickelodeon’s Game Shakers also made special appearances throughout the show.
And of course Kobe Bryant receiving the legend award and being covered in gold slime!
