The Disney Channel Games
This refers to games that were held during the summer of 2008 and were televised on the Disney channel. The time frame of the games was from July 27 all through to August 30, 2008. These Games had in addition extra two hosts, Cody and Meaghan Jette Martin. Compared to the two previous games, this 2008 edition of the games featured only 5 events and online hosts. The first episode was missed by Dylan and Cole Sprouse as they “missed” the bus.
Competitions at the games included, Chariot of Champions, Hang Tight, Foos It or Lose It, Babyface-Off, Tug of Four and UltraMegaUltimateObstacular Relay!
In Chariot of champions, the four teams had to built a chariot then race it to the finish. Miley Cyrus also performed her song “Breakout”. During the Hang tight competition, the stars were lined up in their respective teams as Cole Sprouse and Dylan. While linked together, the teams were supposed to complete an obstacle course then other challenges. It was here that The Jonas Brothers performed songs from their album, “A Little Bit Longer”. In the foos it or loose it competition, the teams competed in a "human foos ball match". The babyface-off competition was a bit less energy consuming as they were required to match their baby pictures to their opponents. On the other hand UltraMegaUltimateObstacular Relay involved racing in a giant relay through obstacles.
In this edition, a total of thirty-seven stars of Disney Channel from all over the world convened in Orlando, Florida at the Walt Disney World.” These games as sated above featured obstacle courses, relay races and other events that took five special half-hour telecasts. The presentation of these games was hosted by Brian Stepanek. It is important to take note that Phill Lewis didn't participate in hosting of these games during 2008 games edition. These special telecasts were officially closed with a post-Games concert that featured performances by the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, The Cheetah Girls and Jordan Pruitt.
This closing event was filmed in Florida at the Walt Disney World Resort. This at last had benefits that accrued to four children’s charities, namely; Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, UNICEF and Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
The 2008 five subsequent special telecasts of these Games presentations were on Saturdays through August 30. All the 27 Disney Channels found across the world aired all the special telecasts and thereafter the local Disney Channel stars hosted their country’s telecast. The “Inside Track,” that's exclusively on www.disneychannelgames.com, hosted by Cody Linley and Meaghan Jette Martin (Camp Rock) went behind the scenes of the 2008 Games. The users of DisneyChannel.com had a chance to vote for their favorite players to enable them dive into the action via online versions of the "Disney Channel Games" that could be seen at least each week.
