Marcus Stroman won $100 on Nickelodeon when he was 6
Nickelodeon’s Figure It Out game show always had at least one world-class athlete on the show thanks to host and Olympic gold medalist Summer Sanders, but one episode was also graced with another Major League talent, although he was more of a little leaguer at the time.
Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman was chosen out of the audience at age 6 for a chance to win $100 worth of Geoffrey Dollars from Toys "R" Us, and is introduced near the 4:10 mark of the following video.
If you don’t want to watch a full episode of Figure It Out, we will spoil it and let you know Stroman got the prize thanks to Amanda Bynes and Weinerville’s Marc Weiner both performing the “secret slime action.” The starter pulled in over $500,000 last year, but none of that money was anywhere near as exciting as those sweet, slime-covered Geoffrey Dollars.
