Camp Orange: Twisted Siblings
Nickelodeon’s award-winning adventure series Camp Orange is back, taking a twisted turn on reality, turning up the gross-factor and seriously testing the threshold of sibling bonds for Camp Orange: Twisted Siblings! Bringing the thunder down under, teen super-stars Jack Griffo and Kira Kosarin (who play twins, Max and Phoebe on Nickelodeon’s hit live-action comedy, The Thundermans will host this year’s show. A contrast to the glitz and glamour of the pair’s home-town in Los Angeles, Jack and Kira will make their first trip to the Australian bush to lead four teams of sibling duos (who were chosen from hundreds of auditions sent in by kids across Australia and New Zealand) through the slimiest, smelliest and most seriously twisted challenges in the show’s eleven seasons. This year, campers have more at stake than ever before. The winning team, as voted by kids watching at home, will be crowned Nickelodeon’s Star Siblings at a live series finale and score a recurring role on the channel as Nickelodeon’s official kid reporters. By registering at Nickelodeon.com.au, kids at home will also have the chance to star in the series finale as the fifth Camp Orange team! As well as mastering the physical challenges, siblings must also channel super-stomach strength to battle the Barf Buggy, a cart of disgusting delicacies that the winning team of each challenge must nominate a rival team to dine on.
Now in its eleventh season, Camp Orange is Nickelodeon Australia’s multiple ASTRA Award-winning (2008, 2009, 2010) local production and Australia’s longest running kids’ reality series. Designed to give kids the ultimate adventure experience, Camp Orange celebrates kids being kids in the Aussie outdoors.
