double dare two dads
2 min read

In what looks to be a first for children’s tv, a family appearing on the US show Double Dare has appeared with two dads.

The iconic Nickelodeon 90’s television show has recently had reboot and it seems has also moved into the 21st century showing a team of two dads and their two adopted children competing.

The show’s new host, Liza Koshy, introduced dads Liberty and Bryan and their adopted children Oscar and Marcos.


“Let’s meet our teams, in Blue, we have Oscar and Marcos and their dads Liberty and Bryan. They love football and they love each other. They are team ‘Double Dads,’ ” said Koshy.

“That’s right! It’s about time we had double dads on Double Dare.”

“So do you both go by dad?” Koshy asked the couple.

The couple said they go by “Dad” and “Papa.”

“So how did we become family?” Koshy asked.

“So about six years ago we were fortunate enough to adopt our sweet boys and it’s been amazing ever since,” said ‘Dad.’

“And now we are on Double Dare,” Koshy said, adding, “Double Dads and double sons on Double Dare, I love that, I love that.”

It is not 100% they are the first same-sex couple led family to appear on a tv show but certainly seems to be a change for the better.

As Twitter user Chad Moser, who is a lover of gameshows said, “This is one of those things that I hope won’t be a big deal soon, but right now I think it’s worth noting: Last night’s episode of Double Dare featured a family with two dads competing, which I think has to be one of the first real-life examples of same-sex families on kids’ TV.”
