In the '90s, Nickelodeon brought us action-packed, kid-friendly game shows that, to this day, we still wish we could dominate. Seriously, who didn't want to sneak past temple guards on Legends of the Hidden Temple, or triumphantly hold a piece of the aggro crag on Nickelodeon Guts? With every great Nickelodeon game show was a great host. So, without further ado, let's check in with Marc Summers, Kirk Fogg, and the rest of the gang to see what they've been up to all these years.
