Career[edit]

Lisa Foiles was one of the new cast-members of the relaunch cast of All That in season seven. On the show she had many characters such as Claudia, and Kaffy. She was one of the cast-members who stayed on the show from the beginning of the relaunch to the cancellation of the show. For seasons 7-9 of All That, Nickelodeon a segment was broadcast during commercial breaks called "Snick On Air Dare", which was similar to the television series Fear Factor. Each segment featured three cast members from All That, in which each of them would be placed in a glass cylinder and one would be randomly chosen to participate in a dare. In season 7, Foiles had to lay down in a bathtub full of dead fish; after the dare Foiles said, "It was the nastiest thing I had ever done in my life". In season 8, Foiles had to lay down in a box with her body covered in mud while live frogs hopped on her body for a minute and also had to chew used gum. In season 9, Foiles competed against Nickelodeon star Drake Bell from Drake and Josh. Both of them had to put their bodies in a giant chili bowl and had to eat the chili. The one who gained more weight would be the winner; after the dare, Foiles lost to Drake Bell. Also that season, Foiles had to compete against a cast member from Zoey 101. Foiles had to dance with clam chowder in her pants; after the dare, Foiles won the dance-off.
