UFC fighter-turned-WWE Superstar Ronda Rousey, Olympic snowboarder Chloe Kim and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce are among the sports stars confirmed to be attending Nickelodeon’s “Kids’ Choice Sports 2018,” next week, TheWrap has learned.
Houston Rockets point guard and former NBA All-Star MVP Chris Paul is set to host the slime-filled awards, taking over the sticky reins from Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who has hosted for the past three years.
Other athletes and entertainment stars to set attend — and no doubt get slimed — are P.K. Subban (NHL, Nashville Predators), Alex Morgan (NWSL, Orlando Pride), Antonio Brown (NFL, Pittsburgh Steelers), Alex and Maia Shibutani (professional figure skaters), and Dude Perfect (“The Dude Perfect Show”).
The show will tape live from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on Thursday, July 19, and air on Nickelodeon Friday, July 20, at 8 p.m.
“I am honored that Nickelodeon asked me to host this year’s ‘Kids’ Choice Sports’ Awards,” former L.A. Clippers player Paul said when it was announced that he was the new host.
“I grew up on Nickelodeon and now love watching it with my kids, and I can’t wait to share this experience with them. I promise to bring the fun, the slime and the most epic stunts in ‘Kids’ Choice Sports history.'”
