‘Dodgeball Thunderdome’ Coming to Discovery – David Dobrik to Host

'Dodgeball Thunderdome' will take place on an isolated 13.8-acre specially constructed site, with competitors ranging from professional athletes to those who've never played a sport in their life.

Discovery Channel and Pilgrim Media Group are excited to bring a new rush of nostalgia to the airwaves. Enter Dodgeball Thunderdome, an innovative competition series that elevates everyone’s favorite childhood game to an intense new level. Fighting it out on an isolated 13.8-acre constructed site, competitors of all shapes and sizes play through crazy rounds of dodgeball for cash prizes. “Winners are not determined simply by their strength and the losers aren’t always picked last.”

Set to host the new series is internet superstar, David Dobrik! “I’m super excited to be working with Discovery on Dodgeball Thunderdome,” said the young influencer with over 60 million followers. “Dodgeball was always everyone’s favorite game in gym class and hosting this show brings back many sweaty memories of dominating in Vernon Hills.” Erin Lim and Andrew “Hawk” Hawkins will co-host the series.

Dodgeball Thunderdome premieres on Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 9 on Discovery!
