Webheads (originally titled as Go Viral[1] while in development) is an American children's game show on Nickelodeon, hosted by former Big Time Rush star and band member Carlos PenaVega. The show premiered on June 2, 2014 and ended on July 3, 2014. The series returned on September 14, 2015 to burn off the remaining episodes on Nicktoons.

Format[edit]

Four contestants compete in a series of viral video viewing challenges.

Round 1: Buffering[edit]

Four videos are shown and on each video, it will pause at some point near the end. Then a question is asked and the contestants are given three possible answers to each one, marked A, B & C. Their job of course is to secretly pick the right one. The first video is worth 1 point, the second is worth 2, third is worth 3, and the last video is worth 5 points. The maximum point total is 11 points. The player with the lowest score is eliminated from the game.

Round 2: Memory Overload[edit]

The surviving three players compete in the second elimination round with their scores reset to zero. The contestants are placed on an apparatus (either a large wheel that scrolls or a shaking track pad). As they exercise on it, a series of videos are shown. When each video is finished, host Carlos will starting asking questions about the videos. On each question, the players must then buzz-in (by hitting one of three buttons that would light up) to answer the question. Again, point values increase throughout the round. The first two videos have two questions each. The first pair is worth 10 and the second pair is worth 20. The last video has only one question, but it is worth 30 points. The maximum point total is 90 points. Again, the player with the lowest score is eliminated from the game and the two surviving players move on to the final round.

Tiebreaker: Video Remix[edit]

If there is a tie for the lowest score in the first two rounds, then the tied players play a game called "Video Remix." To start, a question is asked about a video where a certain part would play over and over again. The video would then play after which the tied players locked in how many times that portion would play. The actual number would then be revealed and whoever has the closet guess advanced to the next round.

Round 3: Moment of Impact[edit]

Up to three videos are shown. Each one will be played twice and will have a horn sound to indicate the moment of impact. On the second play, the surviving two players will try to buzz-in at the moment of impact. The player closest to buzzing in at that moment wins the video. Two out of three videos wins the game and the right to play for big prizes.

Bonus Round: Trending Now/The Spinning Wheel of Doom[edit]

During the final commercial break, the audience ranks four of the videos shown on that day's show from the worst to the best, and before the round starts the player is shown the four videos that were voted on in random order. The player's job is to guess the correct ranking order by grabbing four tablets representing the four clips one at a time, taking each in the Spinning Wheel of Doom, a revolving obstacle course consisting of several hurdles and a wall, and placing them in what s/he thinks is the proper order. When s/he is done, the winner comes out, presses the button and learns how many s/he got right (similar to the "Race Game" on The Price is Right). After the first check out, the wall opens and will stay open for the rest of the round. On the second check out, one of the videos in the correct position is locked in provided that any are right. If the player can place them in that right order in 90 seconds or less, they win grand prize and get to ride the "Slime Wave". If not, s/he still receives a consolation prize.

The Surf the Web Area[edit]

After each act, eliminated players (including the ones who lost the bonus round) get to ride a surfboard barefoot and have water sprayed on them, while the grand prize winner has slime poured down on him/her.
