Destroy Build Destroy is an American live action reality series on Cartoon Network hosted by Andrew W.K.. It was an unusual type of game show, in which two teams destroyed a random object and built vehicles from it, and then the winners destroyed the losers' creation. The series originally premiered as part of a line of live-action reality series called CN Real, which aired in 2009. The series premiered on June 20, 2009, and ended its run on September 21, 2011.

Destroy Build Destroy is one of only two shows from the CN Real block (the other being Dude, What Would Happen) to have been renewed for additional seasons, as the other CN Real shows had already been cancelled earlier most likely due to low ratings.


Destroy Build Destroy is a game show in which two groups (a "green or blue" team and an "orange or yellow" team, usually grouped by theme such as common interests) of three teenage contestants destroy various objects, then build vehicles out of the wreckage. The show features high powered explosives, rocket launchers, bazookas, and other destructive tools. The winning team gets $3,000 ($1,000 dollars each) as a prize; the losers' creation then gets destroyed by the team with the winning vehicle.[1] However, if a tie occurs by the end of the final round, resulting in neither team winning, both vehicles are destroyed.
