A reboot of the popular Nickelodeon game show, Figure It Out, returned to the network June 11.
The show has been revamped, but keeps most of the original format. A panel of four Nickelodeon celebrities are given clues and must guess the contestant's hidden talent.
”The original had a certain look, and we were looking to update that look and bring it into 2012," said executive producer Magda Liolis, according to Inside TV.
The show still features the infamous green slime, adding even more than the original 1997 version of the show.
“I want them not to know when they’re getting slimed, [but] I want them also not to know where they’re getting slimed from," Liolis added, speaking about the panel being slimed from a number of directions.
As a new addition, the contestant can also be slimed if the celebrity panel guesses the "word of honor," which is a pre-chosen word featured in the contestant's talent.
Like before, the panel receives clues to help them out. A clue coaster is one of the ways clues are given to the celebrities. This is a revamped version of the clue train.
According to Detroit News, the first episode featured Nick stars Victoria Justice and Matt Bennett from Victorious, along with Lulu Antariska from How to Rock, and Rachel Crow from Fred: The Show.
Jeff Sutphen from BrainSurge has taken over as host. Summer Sanders was the original host in 1997.
Nickutopia reports that Ashley Argota from Nick's Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventure has filmed six episodes of the show. Other stars include Jennette McCurdy and Noah Munck from iCarly, and Gracie Dzienny, Ryan Potter, and Carlos Knight from Supah Ninjas.
Drake and Josh star Drake Bell is also set to make an appearance on the celebrity panel.
