'School of Rock' Stars Breanna Yde & Ricardo Hurtado Get Covered In Slime at Nickelodeon's Super Bowl Experience

Breanna Yde gets slime all over herself while participating in Nickelodeon’s Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl during the Super Bowl Experience on Thursday (February 1) in Minneapolis, Minnesota!

The School of Rock actor was joined by her co-star Ricardo Hurtado, who got slime poured all over him, as they filmed for the television special to air on Sunday (February 4) on Nickelodeon USA.

Breanna and Ricardo were team captains as they competed in four NFL-inspired challenges with a Nickelodeon twist, including slime-filled obstacle courses and an end zone celebration dance off. By the looks of it, Ricardo's team won, but Breanna got her revenge by pouring a bucket full of slime on him!

Hosted by Nick Cannon, Nickelodeon's Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl is an hour-long competition special, pitting two teams of NFL athletes and Nickelodeon stars against one another in a series of fun and exciting football-themed physical challenges. Hosted by Nick Cannon and featuring NFL athletes, including current NFL stars Drew Brees, Stefon Diggs, Todd Gurley and Luke Kuechly, NFL legends Deion Sanders and DeMarcus Ware, team captains Breanna Yde and Ricardo Hurtado (School of Rock), and a halftime performance by NFL Juniors’ Brand Ambassador JoJo Siwa (Lip Sync Battle Shorties), the special was taped at the Super Bowl Experience. Mimicking the four-quarter format of a football game, teams competed in four NFL-inspired challenges with a Nickelodeon twist, including slime-filled obstacle courses and an end zone celebration dance off. The team with the most points will win the title of Superstar Slime Showdown Champion.

In addition to the title, each Superstar Slime Showdown team will be competing for a local children’s charity. In collaboration with Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play partners, PLAYWORKS and Special Olympics, the winning team will receive a $15,000 donation, and the runner-up will receive a $5,000 donation. PLAYWORKS is the leading national nonprofit leveraging the power of play to improve children’s social and emotional health by increasing opportunities for physical activity at schools. Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Nickelodeon's Superstar Slime Showdown at Super Bowl airs Sunday, Feb. 4, at 12 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nick USA, Nicktoons and TeenNick. Nicktoons will air a same day encore at 3:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
