Nickelodeon game show casts on Kauai

Kauai keiki interested in competing on the Nickelodeon game show “Paradise Run” have until the end of April to apply.

“Paradise Run,” a competition that involves obstacle courses, trivia and problem solving challenges, will be filming its second season this summer at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island.

The competition features teams of two, who know each other well — they can be related or friends.

Kids must be between the ages of 11 and 14 during the time of filming, which will take place between May 1 and June 10, according to a release from Casting Kauai.

The winning team will receive the “ultimate vacation experience,” complete with a 4-night stay at the Hilton Waikoloa Village and $1,000 spending money.

Parents are asked to email Angela Tillson, owner of Casting Kauai, with individual photos of contestants, one photo of the team together, along with their names, date of birth, parents’ names and contact information. Tillson can be emailed at

The information will be sent to MysticArt Pictures, a casting agency, in Los Angeles, who will set up a Skype interview, Tillson said.

As a way to drum up interest, Tillson has been going to kids events like sporting games and the Creative Love Festival to talk to parents and children about the opportunity.

“I ask the kids if they watch Nickelodeon and if they know the show,” she said. “If they do, it’s easy because it gets them excited.”
