In 1987, game show producer Ron Greenberg produced two pilots for a grown-up version of Double Dare. Two pilots were produced for CBS. One of them was played with married couples. Another was a celebrity pilot called Celebrity Double Dare, which was (true to its name) where celebrities played with grown up civilian contestants.

Rules[edit | edit source]

This version is far different from other versions of Double Dare.

  • The amounts were double of FOX's Family Double Dare amounts.
  • Only one toss-up challenge was played which was in the first round.
  • All questions were two-parters and each player must answer each half in order to score.
  • Teams always took turns answering questions regardless of who answered the question or not.
  • In the Obstacle Course, there were seven obstacles instead of the usual eight. The time to run the Obstacle Course was not 60 seconds but 90 seconds. The contestant did two of the obstacles (2 & 4) while the (celebrity) partner did four (1, 3, 5, & 6); both players did the final obstacle (#7). Instead of grabbing or finding flags, the player performing the obstacle must hit a button by the obstacle after finishing it. The grand prize was a new car which carried over into the Family shows.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Double Dare (part of the) logo would later find its way into the 1988 syndicated version.
