- David Dobrik will be hosting the upcoming competition show Dodgeball Thunderdome.
- The show will premiere on The Discovery Channel on August 19.
David Dobrik is one of YouTube's biggest stars and now he's taking his talents from your web browser to your TV screen. He's getting ready to host Dodgeball Thunderdome, which premieres on The Discovery Channel on August 19.
In the competition series, Daivd, along with cohosts Erin Lim and Andrew "Hawk" Hawkins, will put contestants to the test with different kinds of challenges to win a $25k cash prize.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the contestants range from professional athletes to people who have never even played sports before. They will compete on a 13 acre site designed specially for the show. Contestants will face off in different challenges that require strength, but also strategy and brainpower to win. The winners won't always be people who finish first and losers won't always be the ones who finish last.
Everything comes to a head in the ninth episode. This finale of sorts will bring back all the contestants who lost over the previous eight episodes in a tournament for one last chance at the $25 prize.
"I'm super excited to be working with Discovery on Dodgeball Thunderdome," Dobrik told THR. "Dodgeball was always everyone's favorite game in gym class and hosting this show brings back many sweaty memories of dominating in Vernon Hills."
The show premieres on The Discovery channel next week Wednesday on August 19, at 9pm.
