    "For whatever reasons, I’ve always been surgically attached to the program and the format," says Summers, who will return to the rebooted game show as its narrator. "You mention Double Dare and fortunately, the next words out of their mouths is Marc Summers, which is pretty darn cool." He adds that he expects the Double Dare revival to be a hit because of its escapism. "The world’s kind of crazy, and people want to go back to their past when things were a little more fluff," he says. "Today, there’s so many alarms that pop up on television, and then there’s a little thing that didn’t exist when we first launched: the Internet. The access that kids have is totally insane."
