Super Bowl Champion and Emmy-Award winner, Michael Strahan shared his enthusiasm over hosting the outstanding event. He said, “Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports is a one-of-a-kind awards show that brings all-star athletes, kids and of course, slime together. When I hosted the first year of the show, I loved it—the energy, stunts, kids, crowd and slime… a lot of slime! Hosting this show has been one of my favorite things I’ve done, and this year is going to be the biggest, the baddest and the slimiest.” (source: press release)
