“I was so excited when Cartoon Network asked me to be the host of the Ben 10 Challenge. The set for this game show is absolutely incredible and we’ve got loads of fun interactive games that will test both the contestants’ physical strengths and knowledge of Ben 10. My ultimate favourite game is when a member from each team gets transformed into the Ben 10 alien Stink Fly and they must fly through the air to collect points for their team – it’s so much fun to watch! I think that both new and existing fans of the Ben 10 animation are going to love Ben 10 Challenge and will get behind the teams and want them to succeed.”
