In his new role as a TrivWorks™ “Special Host,” Mr. Summers will provide companies and conferences of all sizes with an energetic & engaging group bonding experience, centered around a highly competitive, fully-customized trivia contest.

One of America’s most beloved game show personalities, Mr. Summers has been a household name since he first hosted “Double Dare” in 1986. The show’s popularity soon led to other syndicated hosting opportunities including “Nickelodeon Family Double Dare,” “Couch Potatoes,” “What Would You Do?” and “WinTuition,” as well as celebrity guest rounds on other game shows including “Win, Lose or Draw” and “Hollywood Squares.” In 2001, Mr. Summers began hosting “Unwrapped” on the Food Network, which is currently in its 9th season. Since 2011, he has also served as executive producer of the Food Network’s “Restaurant: Impossible,” which is currently in its 7th season.

“Ever since hosting ‘Double Dare,’ I’ve been energized by the competitive nature of trivia events,” says Summers. “TrivWorks™ sets the standard in live professional trivia, and offers something truly unique and compelling in corporate event entertainment. I’m looking forward to our partnership, and to helping create fun and memorable experiences for groups of all kinds!”
