Each year a group of students from my middle school would wind up on Double Dare (or Finders Keepers), which was always something to look forward to.
Interestingly, host Marc Summers had a serious case of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. His specific problem dealt with perfectionism, or everything needing to be in its place. As you can imagine, being the host of a game show as messy as Double Dare was a serious stressor for him. Summers wrote a book about his battle with OCD titled Everything In Its Place: My Trials and Triumphs with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Here’s a great fan page about Double Dare with some great pictures and memories of the show. Take a look and relive some of the great memories, and then watch on late-night Nickelodeon for reruns of the show. -ram
