Nickelodeon’s hit series Paradise Run returns for its third season tonight, Monday, Nov. 13, at 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT), with two wild weeks of celebrity sneak peek episodes featuring Nickelodeon stars and their biggest super fans. Hosted by Daniella Monet (Victorious), and shot against the tropical landscape of Hawaii, teams go head-to-head competing in all-new adrenaline-pumping challenges. The Nick stars play for charity and help their super fans vie for the ultimate prize—a paradise vacation.

The stakes have risen as each show includes contestants sliding down an all-new 45 foot volcano-themed water slide, and zipping across the hotel lagoon on a brand-new 700 foot zip-line. Some of the newly created and funny challenges include: Volca-Nose--teams climb up of a 50-foot slimy slide to plug five oozing nostrils of a baby volcano; Sandwich Islands--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--teams use giant sling shots to fling rubber bats at their teammates across the lagoon.

Nickelodeon stars 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'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.

Fans can find out more information about Paradise Run, as well as catch up on the first two seasons, watch exclusive video clips and play fantastic games, on nick.com/paradise and the Nick App.

Paradise Run is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment's Stone, producer of Nickelodeon's Emmy-nominated BrainSurge, and a creator of the classic Nick game show Legends of the Hidden Temple. Marcus Fox also serves as executive producer.

Update: From GirlsLife:

Exclusive! Daniella Monet says *this* Nick star is the most competitive

What do you get when you take paradise, Nickelodeon stars and a whole bunch of crazy competitions? Paradise Run! Nick's super fun game show is returning with season three *tonight* at 7 p.m. ET and we seriously can't wait.

In this season, things are getting bigger and better and way more fun! Starting tonight you'll see a 45 foot volcano-themed water slide (more on that later!), a Volca-Nose, Sandwich Islands and Crazy Bat Shoot. What the heck are those? Peep this exclusive video below to see if you can spot them...

The show's host, Daniella Monet (aka your girl Trina from Victorious) is dishing all the fun on competitive contestants, hanging with dolphins and the downside of living in paradise. Read on for more!

On her ultimate paradise run...

"The zip line never gets old, but it's the beginning of the show when the kids make their big entrance on this crazy-insane and huge water slide that's built into the side of this volcano that's really great. When they were building the slide, I would watch the stunt guys try it and I would be like, 'Are we serious with this? This seems too crazy!' But it's perfect, and the entire crew couldn't wait until after we wrapped to try it."

On which Nick star is the most competitive...

"I mean, I have to be honest: I don't know if I can pick just one. The Nick stars come out with such energy and motivation. It's almost like they come off of their sets and they just let loose here. In particular, Benjamin Flores (Peanut from Game Shakers) would *not* back down. He's a little thing but he is so fierce!"

On shopping on set...

"The wardrobe stylist always finds the cutest looks for me! I'm allergic to shopping and hate it with my whole heart [laughs], and after the show's done I get to keep a lot of the clothes which is awesome—especially getting to keep the sandals!"

On living in paradise...

"The crew and I go on an annual boat trip each season and it's *everything.* It's a whole day of being out on this boat with good food and we get to watch dolphins—they're so friendly and they just can't wait to guide the boat. It's amazing."

On who she'd team up with to compete...

"You know who I was super excited to see compete? Alexa and Carlos PenaVega. Alexa is #goals all day. She killed the game so I'd love to compete with her!"

On her go-to Hawaii eats...

"As amazing as the food is in Hawaii, it's not very vegan-friendly which is no fun for me. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I would go to this place called Under the Bodhi Tree every other day. It's my go-to spot to eat while I'm in Hawaii—I literally have a VIP stamp card. Their acai bowl is next level!"

So who will you see on season three of Paradise Run? 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.
You can watch the season three premiere of Paradise Run tonight at 7 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon.
