You'll never guess what Jack Griffo did *just* for a pack of Oreos!
Happy June, babes!
Sliding into this month means that we're one step closer to a sweet summer vacay. Looking for some entertainment to kick off the fun? Nickelodeon’s Sizzling Summer Camp Special is where it's at. Join all your fave Nick stars on June 4 at 7 p.m. as they embark on an epic sleepaway camp journey full of mystery, suspense and, of course, laughs!
With all the Nick kids in tow, it's no surprise that there was no shortage of good times on the set of the special. "It was cool to get to hang out with everybody because, being on different shows, we don't get to see each other a ton." Jack Griffo (The Thundermans) spills. "Me and Kira [Kosarin] are the oldest of the bunch by far so it's awesome to watch the younger kids grow, too."
The pair is just about to celebrate their show's 100th episode, too. Talk about cool! "We're really, really excited. Looking back, we’re so different than we were in season one of the show," Jack says. "I feel extremely grateful to have been on the show for 100 episodes. It's a special thing. "
For more behind the scenes dish on the special and Jack's summer 2017 faves, read on.
GL: Tell us about the Sizzling Summer Camp Special!
Jack Griffo: All of us Nick kids get together to go camping, and throughout the special we unravel a couple of old campfire scary stories, like Bighand. I don't really believe in the the legend of Bighand but we find him—and you just have to watch the rest to see what happens. I'm excited for the fans to see it!
GL: Do *you* believe in paranormal and ghostly things like that? Any creepy stories to share?
JG: Not really, no! [laughs] I think it's definitely plausible, though. Ghostly things, extraterrestrial things, I do believe in it, yeah.
GL: Talent shows are a summer camp staple. So if you were at camp, what would your talent be?
JG: Oooh, I was a big camp kid—I went for 10 years. That was what I looked forward to every summer growing up. I did play guitar, so in the talent show I probably played some popular '07 song, like old Maroon 5.
GL: What's your *fave* memory from your camp days?
JG: We would always go out to the lake and my counselors would chuck Oreo minis packages off the boat and we would all race to get 'em. We didn't really get stuff like that at camp—you know it's just cafeteria food—so when we got treats like that everyone was like "Yo, let's go!"
GL: What summer movie are you most excited to see?
JG: I'm excited to see Wonder Woman. I’ve heard that it's better than Batman and Superman!
GL: What do *you* think is going to be the song of the summer?
JG: I think Katy Perry’s gonna take it. Like “Swish Swish” and “Bon Appetit” are just so good!
Catch Jack in the Sizzling Summer Camp Special on June 4 at 7 p.m. *and* The Thundermans' upcoming special, Thunder in Paradise, June 24, at 8 p.m., both on Nickelodeon.
