Marc Summers is that guy from Double Dare but he's also that guy from the Food Network.  He's a pop culture legend who has hosted and produced popular television for decades.  However, there was a period of time when he was almost out of showbusiness, but thanks to a great hunger for success Marc bounced back and found even more success.

  • The real history of Nickelodeon's Double Dare
  • Almost losing the Double Dare hosting gig to Dana Carvey
  • The good and bad times with touring the country doing Double Dare live
  • Experiencing a pure dream job
  • The exhaustion that the busy life of success brings on
  • Almost losing his career after coming out with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • A second life in his career at the Food Network with hosting Unwrapped and others shows
  • Producing television with Robert Irvin's Restaurant: Impossible
  • Being old friends with Ryan Seacrest
  • Great advice for auditioning (and all job interviews)
  • How passion fuels success
  • The joy of helping young talent and giving back
  • The car accident that broke every bone in his face and almost killed him
