Title: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Silver Monkey on October 24, 2011, 07:59:04 PM
This was touched upon in the Name that Picture thread when PPF posted a picture of the Blue Barracudas from John Henry's Lost Hammer who bore a striking resemblance to Damian and Jennifer from the Map to the Lost Gold Mine (of which I agree). It was suggested to move the discussion to its' own thread, so here it is.

To get the ball rolling, I'm pretty sure that the Blue Barracudas who got replaced by the Silver Snakes (after they had gotten wrongly sent back at the moat) at the steps in the Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata later came back as the Purple Parrots in the Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl. Here's a side-by-side comparison:




And a table to keep track of all of the "second-chancers":

Yeah, that one is pretty obvious. And it doesn't surprise me that Janet and Chris from Emiliano Zapata/Priceless Portrait got a second chance considering they got disqualified at the moat. As far as other losers at the moat that went to the temple later....

Tim and Retina from the Gordian Knot:



The first picture (which took me forever to find in the Pictures thread :lol: ) is from The Medal of Sir Edmund Hilary. They lost at the moat in that episode. The second picture is them on the SOK in "Gordian Knot." They later made it to the temple in that episode.

Damian and Jennifer from John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine:



I know I really have no proof, but they look so similar for it NOT to be them.

Jennifer from the Melted Head of Madame Tassaud:



The first picture it's kind of hard to see, since her face is blurry. But if you've watched the episode, you'll know that it's clearly her. The second picture is obviously her from the temple run. I don't think I need to explain anymore there. ;)

I think that just about covers it really. Unless you guys can spot anymore contestants that somehow got a second chance.

EDIT: Pictures have been resized.

Great idea for a thread! I definitely need to pay attention to the moats more now since I never noticed this before.  :mrgreen:

Same here. It kinda makes me wonder if the Green Monkeys from John Henry's Lost Hammer ever got a second chance, for they got disqualified at the moat too.

I don't know, I was looking through the screencaps, and they have no resemblance to any other Season 1 contestants. It could have been possible that they turned down the second chance, but we'll never know.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 26, 2011, 09:28:51 PM
I sweat the Red Jaguars team in "The Moccasins of Geronimo" look like Kristen and Scott from "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart."

Let me see if I can get a good picture.

EDIT: Nevermind, after a closer look they don't look like neither.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Headless King on December 27, 2011, 02:43:04 PM
I think I found another one.

On the left is Jeremy and Erica from Robin Hood and Marian's Silk Ladder.  On the right is the Silver Snakes from The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa.


 

Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on December 27, 2011, 02:50:48 PM
That sure looks like them, even though the picture isn't the best quality. And it would make sense since the Silver Snakes lost at the moat in Atahualpa. The producers probably asked Jeremy and Erica if they wanted a second chance for the following filming day. What with Atahualpa being S1L7 and Silk Ladder being S1L8.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 27, 2011, 03:16:51 PM
Good find, THK. I really need to go back and watch some of these old season one moats since we are finding a lot of contestants from former moats in later episodes. That definitely looks like Jeremy and Erika also.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 27, 2011, 03:44:10 PM
Maybe for season 1, not enough kids signed up for Legends, so the production crew probably asked teams from previous episodes if they wanted to try again.

Maybe for season 1, not enough kids signed up for Legends, so the production crew probably asked teams from previous episodes if they wanted to try again.

That was my assumption also. Due to the lack of awareness of Legends at the time, they probably re-used some of the teams in the temple.

When looking through the moats in each episode, we should keep a look out for teams that didn't make it past the temple games or even the Steps. Judging frm TSM post, the kids that did not make it past the moat in Emiliano Zapata came back for the Steps at least in the Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl.

According to Scarberry, 60 children were selected from 500 auditioners for the first season.
Quote
Annie-Gay and Scott were among 60 children selected from 500 who auditioned in July to appear on Nickelodeon's new game show, Legends of the Hidden Temple.
Because the first 40 episodes have 240 contestant slots, I don't think that the count of 60 contestants is complete; rather, contestants must have come from other sources.  Unfortunately, we don't know much of anything about the pre-1st season timeline of Legends (HMM Productions, the shell company was incorporated in California in June 1993, and first season episodes taped August 1993), so it may be hard to pin down other auditions that could have supplied more contestants.  Nevertheless, the hypothesis that losing moat contestants were given a second chance due to a lack of suitable contestants may have some merit.

What does everyone think about this comparison? While watching "The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora" moat, I noticed that the Silver Snakes looked a lot similar to Jim and Kristen from "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl". The Silver Snake girl in "Empress Theodora" even shares Kristen's height.

Sorry about the poor quality for both pictures. You might have to watch "Empress Theodora" yourself to get a better shot maybe.

Sure looks like them to me. Good catch!
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 13, 2012, 01:53:29 PM
I find it very odd that Kristen and Jim were let back on the show in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl", especially wen they made it to the Steps in "Empress Theodora". Its kind of ironic though that both the "Emiliano Zapata" Purple Parrots and Kristen + Jim were eliminated in other episodes, yet let back in "Polynesian Girl" and even made it to the temple games. I wonder if there were other teams in that episode that appeared in prior moats?  :o

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 13, 2012, 04:11:19 PM
What a coincidence that I was just reading this thread last night. Right before I went to bed. :shock:

And yeah, good catch on Kim and Kristen. They do look exactly alike. I'm surprised the producers would let losers on the steps compete again. You would think they wouldn't let them and would figure they made it far enough. And yeah, how odd that Chris/Janet and Jim/Kristen were both rejects from previous episodes, competing against each other. And in the Season 2 finale no less.

KIM?! Did you just call Jim one of the worst players names on the show?! j/k  :o  :mrred:

I do wonder why they let Kristen and Jim back though. Maybe they needed some contestants in the final episode? Perhaps that explains Kristen and Jim's dominance in the earlier rounds of "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl". But I am glad they let them back along with the Purple Parrots - both teams made a great episode.

We could probably find even more contestants in the moats of other episodes. I am interested more though on how Jennifer in "The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelly" had a different partner than in "Madame Tussaud".
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 13, 2012, 06:53:39 PM
Hah, sorry. Typo on my part. :lol:

And yeah, Chris/Janet and Jim/Kristen deserved their second chances in the Priceless Portrait episode. They both did great. And I have no idea why Jennifer from Tussaud was paired up with someone different. Since her first partner was African American and all. Maybe the first guy was put on another episode, but lost the temple games? I'm not quite sure. Nicholas was probably just a random pairing, like most pairings are. Also, notice how all these contestants who come back end up dominating everything in their second episode? The John Sutter Kids and the Silk Ladder kids are perfect examples of this.

*Bump*

So I was reading through some old topics here, and I came across this topic. (http://phantomstemple.us.to/index.php?topic=1964.msg26875#msg26875) And apparently this girl who did a Tv.com review for the "Dead Man's Hand" episode was Sarah Bekemeyer herself. She lost at the moat in "Galileo's Cannonball" (or episode 1 as she puts it), and her and Josh were given a second chance in "Dead Man's Hand." They were the Red Jaguars in the former episode, and of course the Orange Iguanas in the latter episode. Below are the pics to prove it:




The former picture is them from "Galileo's Cannonball." Since the Red Jaguars didn't make it past the moat in that episode, it would make sense for Josh and Sarah to get a second chance in "Dead Man's Hand." Thoughts?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 14, 2012, 08:44:25 PM
Good eye, both of the players look alike in both moat crossings. The boy even shares the same height in both pictures. Since both "Galileo's Cannonball" and "Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand" were some of the earliest episodes on the show, I am not surprised Josh and Sarah were asked to come back. It makes me want to go back and rewatch some of these season one episodes again closely to see if more teams were given a second chance in the moat. But good catch overall, I think we can add this one to the list!

I have tried to watch the season three episodes, but those moat crossings are hard to view the contestants due to the quality of the videos. But I will still keep an eye out!  :mrred:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 14, 2012, 10:08:08 PM
Speaking of moat crossing losers in "Galileo's Cannonball," I'm pretty sure the Purple Parrots from the aforementioned episode were also in "Dead Man's Hand" as well.

Proof:



The former episode (excuse the poor quality) is from "Galileo's Cannonball." The latter is from "Dead Man's Hand." The Purple Parrots in the above picture were also probably asked for a second chance. Plus, both teams in both pictures look exactly alike. However, that particular team lost at both moat crossings. I know these are losers at the moat, and this really isn't THAT noteworthy. But, while we're on the subject of early episode "extras," I figured it would still be worth mentioning.

Also, I think I found Jennifer's original partner from the "Mysterious Manuscript" episode.

Pics:



The former picture is from the previous page, and in the "Mysterious Manuscript" episode. The latter picture is from the Steps of Knowledge in "The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb." The Orange Iguanas there however, did not make it to the temple games. I know I don't have any real proof, but the African American kid in those above pictures do look alike. Again, since we're talking about Jennifer from the "Tussaud" episode, I figured I'd bring her first partner up here. Especially since "Taj Mahal Turban" and "Melted Head" were filmed back to back. Of course, feel free to disagree with me.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 14, 2012, 10:30:45 PM
I agree that the Purple Parrots from "Galileo's Cannonball" was the exact same team also in "The Dead Man's Hand". Since it was the first production day, they probably gave other teams a second chance since perhaps they needed more contestants for the first production day. And this picture goes to show you that other teams were maybe given a second chance at the show, even if they didn't make it to the temple. So it would be nice to not look for just teams from the temple run.

As for the Orange Iguana boy in "The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb", I see the resemblance there also with Jennifer's partner from "Mary Shelley". I wonder why Jennifer and him were put on different teams? Either way, they both are the same shirt color despite being in different episodes, which could be used as further proof that they are one of the same.

Overall, good find. Maybe it wouldn't be a good idea to go back and look at some of the older season one episodes since it seems like a lot of them were given a second chance at a second episode. Also, I am trying to find if any of the teams in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl" appeared in past episodes too since we know that Janet/Chris and Kristen/Scott appeared in earlier season two episodes.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 14, 2012, 11:15:37 PM
Kristen and Jim you mean? ;)

And yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other players from the Priceless Portrait episode were rejects from another episode. I'm more concerned about finding more Season 1 players appearing in multiple episodes. I'm not sure if there were anymore Season 3 contestants who got to appear in another episode. I'll have to look out for that.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 21, 2012, 12:53:40 AM
I know earlier in this thread someone mentioned that Jeremy and Erika were the Silver Snakes in the moat for "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa". But watching that moat again, the Silver Snake boy doesn't really look like Jeremy that much. He is a little skinnier and taller than Jeremy was. Not sure about the girl, I can see some resemblance to Erika. But I don't know if this was the same team in " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:".
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 21, 2012, 02:37:47 AM
I don't know, it still looks like them to me. Erika with her short stature and Jeremy with a similar face as the guy pictured. Plus, "Atahualpa" was S1L7, but "Silk Ladder" was S1L8, episodes that weren't very far apart from each other. So it's plausible the producers asked them both to come back for the following day.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 22, 2012, 01:10:13 AM
On closer look, they do look like Jeremy and Erika in the picture provided on page one of the topic. Season one had bad moat views though so its hard to tell sometimes the temple teams.

Has anyone checked out moats for episodes like "The Golden Cup of Belshazzar" or "The Secret Map of Nathan Hale" since those were taped in much earlier layouts?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 05, 2012, 10:30:05 PM
I think I found another pair of "previous episode rejects." The Purple Parrots and the Blue Barracudas who lost at the moat in "Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress," were the same teams who lost at the Steps of Knowledge in "The Treasure of Anne Bonny."

Below is photographic proof of that:



That's a picture of them at the moat, in which neither team made it across.

Here they are in "Anne Bonny":



Sorry I couldn't get a more close up picture of the Blue Barracudas. That was the best zoom in I could get. But yeah, those two teams lost at the Steps of Knowledge in this particular episode. Basically, neither one of these teams made it to the temple. I know this doesn't mean anything, since these teams didn't make it very far. But those kids do look alike in the above pictures. Plus, this was Season 1, where the producers were obviously short on contestants. It's safe to say they were allowed another try because of that.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 06, 2012, 12:30:13 AM
Yeah, both of those teams look familiar. And it makes sense for them to be in "The Treasure of Anne Bonny" because that was the last episode of S1L9 while "Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress" was the first episode of that layout. I guess the producers gave both teams a second go at getting to later rounds of the show. Too bad they failed to even reach the temple games in both episodes.

This situation is similar to "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl" where a couple of teams from earlier episodes were allowed back for the final episode of the season. However, in "Priceless Portrait", Kristen/Jim and Janet/Chris actually went onto the temple games, while neither of those teams made it passed the steps in "Anne Bonny".
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 07, 2012, 02:09:46 PM
What does everyone think of this comparison? While watching some of the season one moats, I noticed that the Orange Iguanas in "Lost Fountain of Youth" look similar to Katie and Roberto in "The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci". The Orange Iguanas did not make it past the moat in "Lost Fountain of Youth" at all.

I wish I could get a clearer picture for "Lost Fountain of Youth", but you might have to watch the moat yourself to get a better idea. But the Orange Iguana boy shares the same skin color as Roberto and the girl shares the same facial expressions as Katie.

And here's one more while we are at it. The Purple Parrots that appeared in "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" look exactly like the Purple Parrots that appeared in "Leonardo Da Vinci". The girl shares the same bangs and hairstyle in both pictures and the boy looks like similar also. Do note that that the Purple Parrots didn't get past the moat in either episode.

And once again, sorry for the crappy resolution. I really wish I could access a better version of these episodes.

Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 07, 2012, 03:18:00 PM
Good find there on both teams. The Orange Iguanas that lost at the moat in "Ponce de Leon" look exactly like the "Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci" kids. And it would make sense that the Orange Iguanas lost at the moat in "Ponce de Leon," which was filmed first of its filming day. And they got a second chance in the "Paintbrush" episode, which was last of its day.

And good eye on the Purple Parrots from "Blackbeard" and "Paintbrush." Both teams look exactly alike, kind of sad that they lost at both moat crossings. Kind of like the Purple Parrots from "Galileo's Cannonball" and "Dead Man's Hand." Such is the Purple Parrots' luck in Season 1. :roll:

Also, I have both "Blackbeard" and "Paintbrush" screencapped, so I can upload better pictures and edit them into your post if you want. They're really good quality too, I just need to pull them up. ;)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 07, 2012, 03:28:36 PM
Yes, please! If you could find better quality pictures for those episodes, I would really appreciate it. The only ones I can get right now are the crappy ones off Youtube. That would be awesome.  :mrorange:

Feel free to edit my post too if you want to include them. ;)

And yes, the Purple Parrots in season one had a lot of bad luck. But they still made it to the temple games a lot early on in the season at least like "Cricket Cage", "Belshazzar", and "Elizabeth I's Golden Ship" featured the Purple Parrots early on in the season. I am not sure what happened though in the later episodes, I guess they just had bad luck.

And if that Purple Parrot team from "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" is the same one in "Leonardo Da Vinci", that should mean that "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" was indeed produced in the entire S1L5 layout. So that most likely meant that "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" was probably delayed from S1L1 and they just decide to throw it into S1L5. There is no way that episode was suppose to be a Pilot episode when it shares the exact same moat as "Leonardo Da Vinci" and the other S1L5 episodes.

And I am surprised we never talked about this subject a long time ago. I remember a couple of instances in the "Daily Episode Log" where certain users like TPP pointed out how he thought he saw Jennifer in the "Mary Shelley" moat. I guess that was because we didn't have access to full episodes back then.

And PPF, where do you go to get these higher quality pictures? My pictures almost always come up grainy and blurred.

Yes, please! If you could find better quality pictures for those episodes, I would really appreciate it. The only ones I can get right now are the crappy ones off Youtube. That would be awesome.  :mrorange:
Above posts have been edited. Though some of the pictures I uploaded still didn't come out great. Long story, don't ask.... :lol:

And yes, the Purple Parrots in season one had a lot of bad luck. But they still made it to the temple games a lot early on in the season at least like "Cricket Cage", "Belshazzar", and "Elizabeth I's Golden Ship" featured the Purple Parrots early on in the season. I am not sure what happened though in the later episodes, I guess they just had bad luck.
And it didn't help that the Purple Parrots only had 9 temple appearances, 2 of them had the Parrots actually advancing to the temple. But, that's another story. ;)

And if that Purple Parrot team from "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" is the same one in "Leonardo Da Vinci", that should mean that "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" was indeed produced in the entire S1L5 layout. So that most likely meant that "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" was probably delayed from S1L1 and they just decide to throw it into S1L5. There is no way that episode was suppose to be a Pilot episode when it shares the exact same moat as "Leonardo Da Vinci" and the other S1L5 episodes.
I was JUST about to bring that up. And I agree wholeheartedly with that. This is further proof that "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" was NOT the pilot episode, or the first episode ever recorded. It was obviously intended for S1L1, but because of production issues, it was moved to S1L5. While it's not uncommon for losers at the moat to get a second chance several filming days after their original episode, the point still stands. "Blackbeard" ended up coming before Ponce de Leon, (the intended first of the day), and Paintbrush was the obvious last of the day.

And I am surprised we never talked about this subject a long time ago. I remember a couple of instances in the "Daily Episode Log" where certain users like TPP pointed out how he thought he saw Jennifer in the "Mary Shelley" moat. I guess that was because we didn't have access to full episodes back then.
Yeah, I'm surprised too. It would have made for some very interesting discussion back in the day. And I'm pretty sure TMH pointed out Jennifer from "Melted Head" being in the "Mysterious Manuscript" moat.

And PPF, where do you go to get these higher quality pictures? My pictures almost always come up grainy and blurred.
I screencap a lot of episodes, I've been doing it for a while now actually. I keepvid the episodes and I take screencaps via VLC media player. Kind of a long story, but there you go.

"Blackbeard" ended up coming before Ponce de Leon, (the intended first of the day), and Paintbrush was the obvious last of the day.

It makes perfect sense also to add "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" into the mix due to only have four other episodes taped in that layout. So that must've meant that "The Golden Cup of Belshazzar" was the episode that took 18 hours to tape. And since it took that episode so long to produce, they most likely just postponed the temple run for a later date. And it would also make sense for them to tape "Belshazzar" run in S1L5 if they were going to go ahead and tape "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" in the same layout.

And here is one pattern I noticed with teams appearing in multiple episodes in season one -- they usually appeared in the first episode in the production day moat and if they were giving another chance, they would appear in the last episode of the production day. Examples:

Jennifer and Damian: "John Henry's Lost Hammer" (first)/ "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" (last)
Tim and Retina: "The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary" (first)/"The Gordian Knot" (last)
S1L9 Blue Barracudas and Purple Parrots: "Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress" (first)/"The Treasure of Anne Bonny" (last)
S1L5 Purple Parrots: "Blackbeard's Treasure Map" (first)/"Leonardo da Vinci" (last)

So here is a little pattern to watch out for when looking for new contestants. Trying looking at episodes first of the production day and last of the production day to find any potential repeats. ;)

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 07, 2012, 04:58:12 PM
And with that thought in mind, I think I have found another pair of teams appearing in multiple episodes. This time, it was the Green Monkeys from "King Tut's Cobra Staff" appearing again in " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:"

Once again, I couldn't get a really good shot of the team in " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:", but I got an image of the Green Monkey boy though in the moat of that episode and he wears glasses like the Green Monkey boy in "King Tut's Cobra Staff". In both episodes, the Green Monkeys failed to cross the moat.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 07, 2012, 05:03:23 PM
And while we're at, the Orange Iguanas that failed in the moat in "King Tut's Cobra Staff" also appeared again in "Silk Ladder" and they failed again at the moat too.  :roll: :lol:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 07, 2012, 05:31:05 PM
Good find on both. Those respective teams look exactly alike. Anyone else find it sad that some of those teams lose TWO moat crossings in one day? I guess those teams just weren't fast or coordinated enough. While we're on the subject of Silk Ladder, I think the Purple Parrots who lost the temple games there, were the same Parrots who lost at the Steps of Knowledge in "The Moccasins of Geronimo."

And here is the proof:



The former picture is from "The Moccasins of Geronimo." They lost at the Steps of Knowledge in that episode. The latter picture is from ":roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:." They made it to the temple games in that episode, but lost. (Shame, could have been an easy Purple Parrots win). :( I'm not sure about the girl though, since the Purple Parrot girl in "Geronimo" had longer hair. The Purple Parrot boy on the other hand, look exactly alike in both pictures. I could be wrong on this one though. Thoughts?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 07, 2012, 05:42:51 PM
This one is a tricky one to determine. The Purple Parrot boy in both pictures look exactly alike, but the Purple Parrot girl looks a little different. One thing that is unusual though is that "Geronimo" is much earlier in season one than " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:". Most of the contestants that we found in season one reappeared in an episode that was filmed later on in the production day. I need to keep my eye out for that.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 07, 2012, 05:48:34 PM
And another weird circumstance is that the Purple Parrots appeared in the Steps in "Moccasins", yet they were given a second chance at a moat despite progressing pass it. But looking at the girl closer now, she does look the same too - only with a different hair style.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 07, 2012, 06:18:00 PM
Well, remember when Jim and Kristen from "Priceless Portrait" was allowed another try after not making it to the temple games in the "Imperial Robe" episode? That's probably what happened there. Plus, we all know "Priceless Portrait" and "Imperial Robe" were far from each other in production order. Just like "Geronimo" and "Silk Ladder" was quite a ways from each other too. So, it's not that uncommon for a "previous episode" reject to appear in another episode much later than their first episode.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 08, 2012, 12:59:52 AM
Very true, I wasn't even thinking of the Kristen/Jim situation, who also made it past the moat in one episode and were still given another chance in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl". The Purple Parrot boy does look so similar in both pictures. And as I mentioned, the girl looks similar too and perhaps just changed her hairstyle.

After looking at a few more season one layouts, I am going to go back to season 2 and look at some of the moats again. There has to be more season 2 contestants than just Janet/Kristen and Chris/Jim.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 09, 2012, 04:12:00 PM
I think I found yet another team that appeared in two episodes. This time around, it is Amanda and Brian from the Blue Barracudas in "The Helmet of Joan of Arc". They first appeared as the Blue Barracuda team in "The Golden Chains of Zenobia", but failed at the moat in that episode. They then would make it to the temple games in "Joan of Arc", but would lose to the Red Jaguars.

Sorry about the bad image for "The Golden Chains of Zenobia", but you can watch the moat if you need to get a better image of them.

The Golden Chains of Zenobia




The Helmet of Joan of Arc

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 09, 2012, 04:52:59 PM
And here is one more team that I think was in multiple episodes. This time around, it was the "I'm a cowboy!" Orange Iguanas from "The Star of Sultan Saladin". The team would later appear in "The Pendant of Kamehameha" but would not make it past the Steps.

The first picture of the team in "Sultan Saladin" is pretty blurry, but the Orange Iguana girl in both episodes has the same hairstyle. I don't know about the boy though, but I am assuming he is the same one also.

The Star of Sultan Saladin




The Pendant of Kamehameha


Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 09, 2012, 08:14:42 PM
Good find, and both contestants on both teams look alike too. Unlike the Orange Iguanas from Sultan Saladin/Kamehameha, the Blue Barracudas from Zenobia/Joan of Arc made it pretty far. Man, this "multiple contestants in Season 1" thing happened more often than we thought. I guess production and auditions were so thrown together that they really lacked that many contestants.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 10, 2012, 12:52:01 AM
Yeah, I am surprised we never even caught that aleast once back when this forum was really popular. I mean people like Tim and Retina or Damian and Jennifer should've jumped out at us. But then again, I never really paid attention to the moat until recently.

I highly doubt that we will find teams that appeared in multiple episodes in season two and three. More likely though, we could find another team or two in season two. But the two season two teams that we have found so far included one that was disqualified by mistake ("Emiliano Zapata" Blue Barracudas). There was also Jim/Kristen, who was let back onto the show for an unknown reason. Man, it would be awesome to interview either one of them two to see why they were let back in "Polynesian Girl".

And season three, I doubt we will find repeat teams. Judging from interviews like Asher and Katie from "Clovis the First", it looks like season three had tons of players trying out for the show. So there is never really a reason probably to give a team a second chance in season three when so many wanted to be on the show. But then again, we know that Jennifer from "Madame Tussaud" at least appeared in two episodes.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 10, 2012, 01:07:49 AM
You mean Imperial Wizard? ;)

And yeah, by Seasons 2 and 3 there were plenty of people who tried out for the show. With the exceptions you just mentioned, there weren't as many "rejects" in the latter 2 seasons as there was in Season 1.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 10, 2012, 01:21:49 AM
I meant Katie from "The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard". There was too many Katies during that season.  :P

And yeah, I am not really going to count on finding repeat teams in season three in particular. I tried watching some season three episodes, but the views of the contestants are pretty hard to make out during the moat since the camera pans by them too fast.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 11, 2012, 07:04:03 PM
I think I found another "reject" team. The Silver Snakes who lost at the moat in "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor," look just like the Silver Snakes from "The Bonnet of Dolley Madison." The Silver Snakes also failed at that moat.

Proof:




The former picture is from "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor." The latter two pictures are from "The Bonnet of Dolley Madison." Excuse the poor quality in the second and third picture. There's a better photo of the team in the third photo. But notice how both girls in both pictures have long hair? Plus, both female players in both episodes did quite poorly in their respective moats. This one in particular I'm probably wrong on. Since the players in the latter episode look considerably older. What do you guys think?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 12, 2012, 12:30:48 AM
I need to go back and watch both moats, I do see a little resemblance with the girl at least. But the girl in "Dolley Madison" seems to have a little thinner hair than the girl in "Annie Taylor". But like I said, I need to go back and watch both moats to be sure.  ;)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 12, 2012, 12:59:11 AM
If it's anything, both guys look similar. They share the same height, the facial expressions, etc. I'm not quite sure about the girls, but the guys look quite alike.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 28, 2012, 11:54:57 AM
After watching several season one videos, this is what I got so far:

John Henry's Lost Hammer





John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine





This one I was unsure with the most. In the first image, this was the Green Monkeys team that got disqualified at the moat in "John Henry's Lost Hammer" for not sitting properly on the paddle board. The second image is from "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" and the Green Monkeys team looks so similar, especially the Green Monkey girl. But this one I am unsure of though.

The Keys to the Alhambra




The Pendant of Kamehameha





The first image is from "The Keys to the Alhambra" where the Purple Parrots didn't make it past the moat. The second image is from "The Pendant of Kamehameha" where the Purple Parrots made it to the Steps but lost. I couldn't get a good image for the Purple Parrots in the second episode, but the boys look so similar that it has to be them.

The Lost Logbooks of Magellan




The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart




The first image is from "The Lost Logbooks of Magellan" where the Red Jaguars did not make it past the moat in that episode. The second image is from "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart" where the Red Jaguars made it to the Steps but only got one answer right. Sorry for the poor quality of those two images, but the Red Jaguar girl looks so similar in both pictures.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 28, 2012, 04:05:03 PM
Actually, the quality in all your pictures are pretty good. ;) And good find on all of them, all the contestants you pointed out look alike. Also, the Green Monkeys from John Sutter/Lost Hammer are yet another example of losing two moat crossings in one day. I guess they did get another chance after all, after getting disqualified at the moat. Yet they still don't manage to make it across when they do get a second chance.

It's no surprise the Purple Parrots from Alhambra/Kamehameha got another chance. Especially seeing that the Orange Iguanas from Sultan Saladin/Kamehameha had the same fate. Losing at the moat at the beginning of their taping day, only to lose at the steps later on in another episode later on. As far as losing contestants go, I think we've covered them all. :lol: Unless you can find anymore.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 28, 2012, 04:43:55 PM
I'm not surprised that the Green Monkeys from John Henry got another chance, considering the other team that got replaced at the steps, the Blue Barracudas from Applewood Amulet got another chance.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 29, 2012, 01:15:58 AM
It seems like a user on Youtube uploaded all the Legends episode into one video AND they have good quality, so that has helped me find comparisons for the latest ones I used. And while I am at it, I want to bring up one more comparison:

The Moccasins of Geronimo




The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart




I actually brought this comparison up on the first page of the topic, but I was unsure at the time because I didn't have access to higher resolution screenshots. Anyways, in the first shot, the Red Jaguars from "The Moccasins of Geronimo" look exactly like Kristen and Scott from "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart". The Red Jaguar girl has the same chunky body as Kristen and the same facial expressions also. The boy does look similar to Scott. The second picture shows Kristen and Scott in different rounds of "Amelia Earhart".
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 29, 2012, 01:37:31 AM
Yeah, I was gonna suggest you start taking screencaps from "ChargerTheWolf" on YouTube. Since his Legends videos have MUCH better quality than "coolflash245mail." The former guy I mentioned had the full length episode all in one part, and that's my go to place to watch Legends videos. ;)

Anyways, back to the topic.... yeah that definitely looks like Kristen and Scott. It should also be noted that when Kristen and Scott DID advance from the moat in "Lucky Pig," they were 4th to finish. Meaning, they almost lost again. Man, Kristen was slower than we thought, huh?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 29, 2012, 01:48:25 AM
Yeah, I have been using Wolf's videos for the past week or so. They have AMAZING quality and they are also in one video too instead of three separate parts. No offense to coolflash's at all, I mean he was the one after all who uploaded the original videos. But I like Wolf's quality more better and will use them to look at season three.

And yes, Kristen was indeed deadweight for the Blue Barracudas. That team barely scraped by each round, and that was because Kristen put zero effort in the entire episode. Even in her temple game she looked beyond pathetic and didn't even look like she was trying. How this girl made it to the temple is beyond me. Mostly because Scott carried this team through the show. And don't get me started on the temple run, she is so damn stupid and slow. Scott should've went in first. Even if the layout was hard and he might've been taken out one room away, at least we wouldn't have to sit through three minutes of slowness and walking around the rooms cluelessly.  :roll:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 29, 2012, 02:11:53 AM
Also, it was revealed here sometime ago that Scott was classmates with Annie, the female Purple Parrot in that episode. I wish I could find the link to the article, but when I checked last time it was defunct. How much do you wanna bet Scott and Annie should have been Purple Parrots? And would have made a MUCH better team, and would have done a much better job in the temple.

But yeah, Kristen almost lost at yet another moat crossing due to her sluggishness. She would have joined the ranks of all those other kids who lost at two moat crossings in a row. They definitely got lucky in the latter episode, that's for sure.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 29, 2012, 02:28:54 AM
Believe me, I would've loved to see any contestant in place of Kristen except a few notably sucky ones. In Annie's case, I would take her in a heartbeat over Kristen. It would've been better off if the Blue Barracudas didn't even make it past the moat. I hope Scott and Annie teamed up after Legends and took the Lucky Pig and beat Kristen with it. That was really an embarrassing performance and I could never stick up for her no matter how hard that layout was. She wasn't even trying at all! I bet both Scott and Annie felt ashamed after that episode.  :roll:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 29, 2012, 03:05:55 AM
Yeah, I'm with you there. :roll:

Anyways, now that we know all about ChargerTheWolf's YouTube account, I could modify your previous posts with the fuzzy quality. And upload better quality pictures to your posts. That way, everyone will get a better glimpse at those who appeared in two different episodes. I've done that sort of thing before, but now I can do it with the rest of the posts.

Thanks for fixing my older posts PPF. I also went back and fixed the Jim and Kristen images even though it was obvious that they were in the moat for "Empress Theodora".

I am still looking at the season one moats. Then I will probably move onto season two next. ;)

Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 10, 2012, 02:23:15 PM
I thought I would bring up one more team that was not mentioned yet:

The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary




Alexander and the Gordian Knot




The first image is from the Purple Parrot team in "The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary". The team did not make it past the moat in that episode. The second image is the same Purple Parrot team in the "Gordian Knot". The image for "Gordian Knot" was kind of bad because I could not get a good shot of the team. But if you watch the moat for that episode, you can tell that the Purple Parrot girl has the same features as the Purple Parrot girl in "Sir Edmund Hillary" including the long blond hair and glasses. And the guys look a like too.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 10, 2012, 02:53:21 PM
The Medal of Sir Gawain? :lol:

And yeah, good find. Heh, they were in the same boat as Tim and Retina from "The Gordian Knot." Both the Orange Iguanas and the Purple Parrots lost at the moat in "Sir Edmund Hilary." But unlike the Parrots from "The Gordian Knot," the Iguanas actually made it to the temple. I think it's pretty obvious who was the better team out of those two.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 18, 2012, 12:53:20 PM
Here's one more I managed to capture:

The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan




John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine




The first image is the Orange Iguanas from the dreaded "The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan" episode, where they failed to make it past the moat. The second image is the same Orange Iguana team two episodes later in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine". The Orange Iguanas once again failed to make it past the moat in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine". They were so pathetic in that episode that the second player was the only one that did not make it across. I am pretty sure they are the same as both female players share the same 90's glasses and the boy looks alike too. Plus, the girl in glasses has this creepy look in both episodes. :o
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 18, 2012, 03:57:18 PM
My god, those glasses. :shock: Good find there, even if the Orange Iguanas were THAT bad during the moat, THEY probably would have done a better job than Jon and Tia. :roll: And losing at two moats that badly.... I guess some people just aren't cut out for the show. I know that sounds harsh, but still.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 20, 2012, 03:31:27 PM
While watching more season one moats, here is an unusual one I found:

The Helmet of Genghis Khan




The Pendant of Kamehameha




The first image is the Purple Parrot teams from "The Helmet of Genghis Khan" who failed to make it past the moat. The Purple Parrot boy looks very similar to Robbie in that episode. The girl sort of looks similar to Tina also. The second image is obviously Robbie and Tina from "The Pendant of Kamehameha". I realize the Purple Parrot girl in the "Genghis Khan" picture is not wearing glasses like Tina wore in her episode. But if you notice the moat for "Kamehameha", Tina is not wearing her glasses there either. I really wish I could've got a better shot of the Purple Parrots in "Genghis Khan" though. I mean the boy looks so similar to Robbie and the girl has same hairstyle as Tina almost.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 20, 2012, 03:36:07 PM
That does look like them. It doesn't look like Tina is wearing her glasses in the moat for "The Pendant of Kamehameha" and it looks kind of clear that the Purple Parrot girl (possibly Tina) isn't wearing glasses as well. The reason Tina didn't wear them is because water ruins glasses (I know this from experience).
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 20, 2012, 03:38:15 PM
Interesting find there. That Purple Parrot boy looks just like Robbie. Not sure about Tina though, though their hairstyles are quite similar. What I find surprising is that of all teams, Robbie and Tina failed at one of the moat crossings. Especially considering how fast Robbie was in the temple run. Oh well, his speed must have improved greatly by the time Kamehameha's moat came around.

Well, some contestants still chose to wear their glasses in the moat because I guess they had no better alternatives. Contestants like Jennifer from "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" and the Orange Iguana girl from "The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan" wore their glasses in the moat. But yeah, not all of the contestants wore their glasses though. Its obvious that Tina didn't wear them in the "Kamehameha" moat.

Yeah, the Silver Snakes in "Kamehameha" finished first in the moat. The Purple Parrots in "Genghis Khan" only lost by a couple of seconds to the Green Monkeys I believe. But yeah, I really wished they showed a better closeup of either one of them in "Genghis Khan". If you watch the moat though for that episode, the Purple Parrot girl does have the curly hair like Tina did.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 22, 2012, 12:56:31 PM
Okay guys, bear with me on this one. There is a lot of comparison that I will be posting below:

The Mask of Shaka Zulu




Alexander and the Gordian Knot




The first image is the Blue Barracuda team that failed in the moat in "The Mask of Shaka Zulu". The second image is the same Blue Barracuda team again in "The Gordian Knot". This time around, they made it to the Steps but did not get past it. I managed to get an image of the Blue Barracuda's girl back in "Gordian Knot" to show that she had the same long hair as the BB girl in "Shaka Zulu".

The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa




Alexander and the Gordian Knot




If you may recall on the first page, THK posted an image of whom he thought was Jeremy and Erika from " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:" being the same Silver Snake team in "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa". After reviewing the S1L7 day more closely, I believe this Silver Snake team is actually the same one that made it to the steps in "Gordian Knot". The boy just looks so similar in the "Gordian Knot" picture to the one in the "Atahualpa" picture.

The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl




 :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: [Robin Hood and Marian's Ladder]




The first image is the Green Monkey team who failed to make it past the moat in "The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl." The second image is from " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:". You can tell the Green Monkey girl from "Dragon Lady" looks just like the Red Jaguar girl in the second image. I think she almost even looks Asian.

The Codebook of Mata Hari




 :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: [Robin Hood and Marian's Ladder]




Okay, this one is pure speculation and the one I am unsure of the most. The first image is from "The Codebook of Mata Hari" where the Orange Iguanas team failed to make it past the moat. I couldn't get that many good shots from that episode, but I believe that Orange Iguana team was indeed Jeremy and Erika from " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:". The Orange Iguana boy in "Mata Hari" looks like Jeremy in the face. The girl kind of looks similar to Erika also. If that truly was Jeremy and Erika in "Mata Hari", then they were beyond pathetic in the moat.  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Here is one more I want to add. What do you guy think of this one?

The Collar of Davy Crockett




The Treasure of Anne Bonny




The first image is the Purple Parrot team that failed to make it past the moat in "The Collar of Davy Crockett". The second image is Fred and Cheater/Ron from "The Treasure of Anne Bonny". The Purple Parrot boy in "Davy Crockett" looks so much like Cheater/Ron from "Anne Bonny". But the Purple Parrot girl doesn't exactly look like Fred from "Anne Bonny" though. Perhaps its just how Fred has her helmet on in the first picture or how bad of a quality the "Davy Crockett" picture is, but the boy definitely looks like Cheater/Ron.

Wow, you really have an eye for these moat crossing rejects. :shock: For my thoughts:

- Agree about Shaka Zulu. The girls hair matches in both pictures, and the guys look alike too.
- Agree about Gordian Knot, I always had a feeling those weren't the Silver Snakes from Silk Ladder.
- Agree about Dragon Lady, and yes that girl does look Asian.
- Not sure about Mata Hari/Silk Ladder, but they do look alike. And I'm not surprised if they were truly that bad at the moat.
- As for Anne Bonny, I disagree. I don't think that's Katherine and Ron in the Davy Crockett picture. Ron kind of looks like the Purple Parrot boy, but I see no resemblance whatsoever to the Purple Parrot girl and Katherine. The Purple Parrot girl had shorter and brighter hair, and Katherine had longer hair, and she had a more fuller face.

One thing I do find funny is all the different/random teams these rejects appear in. I swear, episodes like "Gordian Knot" and "Silk Ladder" are like paradises for previous episode rejects. :lol:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 22, 2012, 05:00:36 PM
Yeah, that Purple Parrot girl didn't really look like Fred to me either. Fred's hair was slightly longer in "Anne Bonny" while that Purple Parrot girl is a little shorter. Also, that Purple Parrot girl in "Davy Crockett" has a HUGE forehead. Its hard to tell because some of the close-ups of the contestants in the moat was so crappy.

One theme I noticed for these season one rejects were that the last episode for the production day contain teams that were rejects from previous episodes from the same day. I just watched over the first three episodes of S1L2 ("John Henry's Lost Hammer", "Cricket Cage", and "Elizabeth I's Golden Ship") and I am pretty sure that every team that got eliminated in each of those respective moats were given another chance in "John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine". I don't have time right now to post picture proof, but all six teams in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" were rejects from one of the three earlier episodes that day. I am pretty sure its the same thing for most of the season one episodes now that I have watched them more now. I can still post pictures later to further prove it.

And having that in mind, I really want to know if some of the other teams in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl" appeared in earlier episodes in season two. If both Janet/Chris and Kristen/Jim were in earlier episodes, then I wouldn't be surprised if other teams in that moat were in earlier episodes too. Maybe that is something I should look into now.  :o

Here is another team that was a moat reject, but made it to the temple in a later episode:

The Stolen Arm of Shiva





The Helmet of Joan of Arc





The first image is the Green Monkeys from "The Stolen Arm of Shiva". They failed to make it across the moat in that episode. The second image is Eddie and Mandy from "The Helmet of Joan of Arc", who made it to the temple in that episode. I managed to get several shots of the Green Monkeys in "Stolen Arm". The Green Monkey girl has the same long hair as Mandy does in "Joan of Arc" and the boy looks similar to Eddie also.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 23, 2012, 03:46:57 PM
Another reject that made it to the temple later? I find it kind of odd how often the team colors change for some of the rejects. Like Kristen and Scott were Red Jaguars, later Blue Barracudas, Robbie and Tina were Purple Parrots, later Silver Snakes, etc. And now we have Mandy and Eddie, who were Green Monkeys turned Red Jaguars. Another good find, those teams definitely look alike. We should probably construct a list of all the previous episode rejects. Since we've spotted so many now, especially in Season 1.

Another good find, those teams definitely look alike. We should probably construct a list of all the previous episode rejects. Since we've spotted so many now, especially in Season 1.

Here is my theory of why some teams were different colors:

The producers pretty much used the last episode of filming for the reject teams. So if the two reject teams in the first episode were from the Red Jaguars and Green Monkeys, they would return as those teams in the last episode of the production day. If the second episode of the production day featured the Green Monkeys and Blue Barracudas not making it past the moat, then when this Green Monkey team is give a second chance, they are forced to use a different color because a team from the previous episode has more priority over them. Here is a few examples of what I mean.

The Purple Parrots in "The Keys to the Alhambra" were eliminated in the moat, but came back later as the Purple Parrots in "The Pendant of Kamehameha". Robbie and Tina were also Purple Parrot rejects in "Genghis Khan", but when they were given another chance in "Kamehameha", they were forced to be a different team color because a team from the previous episode had more priority to the Purple Parrot color.

Just look at Kristen and Scott. The Red Jaguars from "The Lost Logbooks of Magellan" were eliminated before them in the moat, so they probably got priority over Kristen in Scott in "Amelia Earhart". So they were forced to be Blue Barracudas.

Hopefully all of this makes sense. ;)

And nice job with the list, TSM. I like how it is very detailed and even lists the outcome for both episode a team appeared in.

Time for one big update. After watching all four S1L2 episodes, this is what I came up with:

The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan




John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine




The first image is the Green Monkeys from "The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan" that did not make it past the moat. The second image is the same team as the Red Jaguars who made it to the steps in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" but failed to progress any further.

Elizabeth I's Golden Ship




John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine




The first image is the Blue Barracuda team who failed in the moat for "Elizabeth I's Golden Ship". The second image is from "John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine". Like the team above, they failed to make it past the Steps in the second episode.

Elizabeth I's Golden Ship




John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine




The first image is the Green Monkey team who failed the moat in "Golden Ship" while the second image is the same team that returned as the Silver Snakes in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine". While Brooke and Perry would make it to the temple games in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine", they lost in that round to Jennifer and Damian.

Conclusion: It seems like all the moat rejects from the previous episodes that day were all given a second chance to make it further in "Map to the Lost Gold Mine". So every team in that episode appeared in an episode before it. I would've never figured that something like this would actually happen. :o
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 24, 2012, 02:06:44 AM
Here's one more I am pretty sure of:

The Collar of Davy Crockett




The Treasure of Anne Bonny




The first team is the Orange Iguanas that failed in the moat for "The Collar of Davy Crockett". The second image is the same Orange Iguana team in "The Treasure of Anne Bonny", where they failed to make it past the moat again. Both contestants look alike, so I am pretty sure that is them.

And looking at the "Davy Crockett" moat again, that Purple Parrot boy definitely looks like Ron. I mean they have the same facial expression and that Purple Parrot boy seems to be the same race as Ron. But the girl doesn't look exactly like Fred though. The hair for that Purple Parrot girl is not dark and she has a bigger forehead than Fred. Unless she doesn't have helmet on tight in "Davy Crockett" and it is a little loose.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 24, 2012, 02:24:06 AM
And I think you forgot to include Jennifer from "The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud" on your list too. That Orange Iguana girl from "Mary Shelley" is definitely Jennifer. I mean the Orange Iguana girl in both moats does that silly thumbs up pose. And if you watch the "Mary Shelley" moat closely, you can tell that is indeed Jennifer. As for the Orange Iguana boy, I think PPF was right about him coming back in "The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb". I mean weren't "Taj Mahal Turban" and "Madame Tussaud" taped back to back?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 24, 2012, 02:30:56 AM
It is seriously unbelievable how many rejects the Season 1 moat had. :shock: I know I've already said that before, but dang. It just speaks volumes how sloppily produced Season 1 was. They couldn't round up enough kids because of the lack of awareness being the first season. So they were pretty much forced into re using teams who had lost at the moat.

As for the current pictures:
- I sort of disagree about the Cricket Cage/Lost Gold Mine picture. The guys look alike, but I don't see much resemblance with the girls.
- I agree about the Golden Ship/Lost Gold Mine kids. Btw, I'm pretty sure "Golden Ship" should be in red, not orange. On another note, notice how utterly devastated the Blue Barracuda boy looks when he loses at the moat in "Golden Ship." :lol:
- I sort of agree about the Silver Snakes from "Lost Gold Mine." The girls look alike, I don't know about the guys.
- And I agree about the Orange Iguanas from Davy Crockett/Anne Bonny. Since both contestants there look alike as well.
- And as far as Ron goes, I agree. The male Purple Parrot from "Davy Crockett" does look like Ron. But yeah, Katherine and the female Purple Parrot don't have remotely any resemblance. I have no idea what happened there.

EDIT: And great list in the OP there, TSM. Very detailed. Also, I agree with your theory on all the different teams, TRJ. That's the only logical reason that even makes sense.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 25, 2012, 01:27:02 PM
Here is one that is not season one for once:

The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard




The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain





This one I noticed a while back while doing my player rankings for "The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass" production day. The first image is the Orange Iguanas who did not make it past the moat in "The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard". The second image is Hallie and Jared from "The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain", who made it to the temple. The Orange Iguana girl in the "Imperial Wizard" moat had the same long curly hair as Hallie did in "Useless Map". Also, the boy does look similar to Jared in the face. However, I am not entirely convinced whether this is Jared and Hallie in the "Imperial Wizard" moat myself. The most unusual part is that the "Imperial Wizard" and "Useless Map" episodes were taped back-to-back. So it would be a bit unusual to let Hallie and Jared come back for the next episode. But both Orange Iguana contestant strike a bare resemblance to each other, so I thought I would bring it up for discussion.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 25, 2012, 02:45:44 PM
You sure love finding rejects, don't you? :o ;)

That does look like Hallie and Jared though. The way Hallie wears here helmet in Useless Map looks identical to the girl in Mystical Spellbook. However, the one thing that throws everything off a little bit is the goggles worn by the girl in the Mystical Spellbook moat. Who knows, maybe if that was Hallie, she decided it would be better off without goggles in Useless Map's moat. That might've been why they failed the Useless Map moat (I haven't seen it though). Also, it does look like Jared in both pics. Not to mention, both players in the pics share the same height it seens. Another good find I think.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 25, 2012, 02:55:49 PM
Yeah, the goggles threw me off in the "Imperial Wizard" moat too. Its pretty obvious Hallie was not wearing goggles in the "Useless Map" moat. And here is another thing that I forgot to mention. The Orange Iguana boy struggled in the "Imperial Wizard" to reach the net while swinging on the rope. Jared also had this problem a couple of times in the "Useless Map" moat. But like you mentioned, both of the contestants in both episodes share similar features including height and Hallie's hair. But the only odd thing though is the fact that this episode was taped right after the "Imperial Wizard" episode...  :o

Maybe there was a different Orange Iguana team that withdrew from the Useless Map episode? Maybe that's why Hallie and Jared were possibly given a second chance. If this is the case, then I'm glad these rejects got brought back. These are the GOOD rejects, not the BAD ones. Too bad they got shafted in the temple run. They were a solid team. :(
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 25, 2012, 03:02:21 PM
I think it makes perfect sense that they'd be allowed back on for the moat for "Useless Map." That episode and "Imperial Wizard" were taped back to back, why shouldn't they be allowed back? Nothing odd about that at all. And Hallie probably didn't want to wear goggles for the latter moat. So the producers decided to let her go without it. They definitely did a much better job in the latter episodes moat by finishing first. They made good use of their second chance, that's for sure. It definitely looks like them too, Hallie with the hair, and Jared with the facial expressions. Plus, the heights match.

It is possible that they needed an Orange Iguana replacement so they just gave Hallie and Jared another chance. And I agree with you, they were one of my favorite Orange Iguana teams to lose in the temple. I can't stand most Orange Iguana teams in the temple, but I thought they were both solid as well and were pretty good in their episode. Although truth be told, the outcome in the temple was fair and it would've helped if they went straight to the King's Storeroom from the Pit. And then we might've actually had a Dark Forest win if they continued onto this path. Or it would've helped also if they would've won that last temple and they would've shut out the Silver Snakes and went to the temple with two pendants. It was still a heart breaking ending though.  :cry:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 25, 2012, 03:25:38 PM
I think I have found yet another season three reject team that would later go onto the temple:

The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass




The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce




The first image is the Green Monkeys team that did not make it past the moat in "Frederickk Douglass". The next episode is Christine and Jeremy from "The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce". The Green Monkey girl in "Frederick Douglass" just looks so similar to Christine in the face. And the boy looks kind of similar to Jeremy also. Also, they both share the same height in both episode pictures. And not to mention, the "Frederick Douglass" and "Robert the Bruce" episodes were taped the same day (first and last episodes respectively.)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 23, 2013, 11:34:48 PM
*Bump*

I think I found another one. The Orange Iguanas that lost at the moat in "The Belly Button of Buddha," were the same Orange Iguanas that lost at the Steps of Knowledge in "The Helmet of Joan of Arc."

Proof:



The former picture is them from "The Belly Button of Buddha," as moat crossing losers. The latter picture is them from "The Helmet of Joan of Arc." They made it to the Steps of Knowledge, but lost. Also, the Blue Barracudas that lost at the moat in "Zenobia" lost at the temple games in "Joan of Arc." So continuing on with the "re usage of moat crossing rejects," they probably let these Orange Iguanas give the moat a second go. I hope this one wasn't already mentioned before though. I tried to search in the OP, but I couldn't find it.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 23, 2013, 11:38:56 PM
I think the last episode of each production day in Season 1 was solely for moat rejects. So throughout S1L6, the teams that got rejected in the moat in earlier episodes (Buddha/Zenobia/Shiva) would return to Joan of Arc for a second chance. Just like Mandy and Eddie returned to Joan of Arc after failing in the Shiva moat. Or the Blue Barracudas from Zenobia returning to the temple games.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 24, 2013, 12:44:10 AM
I'm not surprised at all, considering how few contestants there were in Season 1. So the Orange Iguanas had to have been the same team in the above two pictures. Now that I think of it, I wonder if the Purple Parrots that lost at the moat in "Buddha" or "Shiva" were in "Joan of Arc" as well? Not that it would matter though, since the Parrots also lost at the moat in "Joan of Arc," no matter which team got a second chance.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 10, 2013, 09:48:57 PM
I think I found another repeat of contestants. The Green Monkeys that lost at the moat in "The Enormous Feather of the Mi Linh," look exactly like the temple game losers from "The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior."

Proof:



The former picture is Ashleigh and Joseph at the moat in "Enormous Feather." They did not advance from it. The latter picture is from the temple games in "Gwalior," where they lost to Ryan and Dawn. The Green Monkey boy is African American in both pictures, and the Green Monkey girl has the same blonde hair and facial expressions. Plus, both teams share the same height in both pictures. I might be wrong on this one though. What do you think?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Silver Monkey on May 10, 2013, 09:52:59 PM
Enormous Feather and Pearl Necklace were filmed on different days, though.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 10, 2013, 09:57:18 PM
True, but Jennifer got a second chance on Melted Head after losing at the moat in the Manuscript episode. Which was two filming days apart. Enormous Feather and Gwalior were three days apart. So it's really not that far fetched to let a contestant come back a few days later. Especially if there was a problem with the moat in Enormous Feather, and/or had to be started over like in the Manuscript episode.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 11, 2013, 12:52:37 AM
I don't know if that is the same Green Monkey boy though. In the Enormous Feather picture, the Green Monkey boy looks darker and more slimmer than the one in the "Pearl Necklace" picture. I do see the resemblance in the girl though and it is possible she got a second chance, similar to Jennifer from Mary Shelley/Madame Tussaud. With both episodes being on different production days.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 11, 2013, 12:54:20 AM
Well, the Enormous feather picture is darker, so that's why the skin color looks different. Or maybe the Green Monkey girl suffered the same fate as Jennifer, she got a second chance and got paired up with another partner.

EDIT: Oh, and I added Hallie and Jared, Christine and Jeremy, and the Orange Iguanas from Buddha/Joan of Arc to the OP.

True, all those moat shots suck because the cameras don't last very long on the contestants. I need to watch the Enormous Feather episode myself to see the comparison. And didn't Jennifer's partner appear in another episode on that same day? Mummified Hand if I recall correctly? I always wonder why they were split up though for a later production day. They are the only team to appear on a later production day besides Chris and Janet in Emiliano Zapata/Polynesian Girl.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 11, 2013, 12:58:43 AM
It was Lost Taj Mahal Turban, the Orange Iguana boy lost at the Steps. And Taj Mahal Turban and Melted Head was filmed back to back. But yeah, I wonder why Jennifer and that Orange Iguana boy were split up. You would think they were the perfect match since they both got a second chance.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 11, 2013, 01:17:27 AM
It makes wonder if the same thing happened with Fred and Ron that I posted a couple of pages back. I swear that Purple Parrot boy is Ron from the Cleopatra moat and later in the Anne Bonny episode. The Purple Parrot girl doesn't really look like Fred though. But if you follow the theme throughout S1, every temple runner in the last episode of the production day from S1L1-L8 appeared in an earlier episode that day:

S1L1 - Sarah and Josh - Galileo's Cannonball --> Dead Man's Hand
S1L2 - Damian and Jennifer - Lost Hammer --> Map to the Lost Gold Mine
S1L3 - Robbie and Tina - Genghis Khan --> Kamehameha
S1L4 - Kristen and Scott - Moccasins --> Amelia Earhart
S1L5 - Katie and Roberto - Lost Fountain of Youth --> Leonardo Da Vinci
S1L6 - Mandy and Eddie - Stolen Arm --> Joan of Arc
S1L7 - Tim and Retina - Sir Edmund Hillary --> Gordian Knot
S1L8 - Jeremy and Erika - Mata Hari -->  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

So if Anne Bonny (last episode during that production day) followed the theme above, Fred and Ron had to be moat rejects somewhere. Maybe Fred and Ron were on different teams before Anne Bonny?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 29, 2013, 09:55:42 PM
I found another Season 1 repeat team. The Silver Snakes who lost at the moat in "Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth," also lost at the moat in "The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci."

Proof:




The first picture is the Silver Snakes in Ponce de Leon, and the second picture is from Leonardo Da Vinci. They lost at both moat crossings. I know I know, "the last episode of each day was nothing more than moat rejects." But since Katie and Roberto of the Orange Iguanas lost at Ponce De Leon's moat along with the Silver Snakes, it would only be fitting for them to try again for Leonardo Da Vinci. Furthermore, the moat rejects from previous episode feat is no exception here. Since the Purple Parrots from Blackbeard also lost at the latter episodes moat as well. I hope this one hasn't been posted before, but I haven't seen it mentioned in this topic yet.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 29, 2013, 10:54:13 PM
I agree, that definitely looks like the same Silver Snake team in both pictures. Since "Leonardo Da Vinci" was the last episode that day and "Lost Fountain of Youth" came before that one, it will only make sense that the Silver Snakes were given a second shot. Kind of like how "Gordian Knot" and " :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: " were full of  moat rejects from earlier episodes. Not to mention, Katie and Roberto were rejects from that moat and later appeared as the Orange Iguanas in Da Vinci. I wouldn't be surprised if the other teams in the moat in Da Vinci appeared in earlier moats from that production day? Perhaps the Blue Barracudas that Katie and Roberto beat were from an earlier moat too?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 29, 2013, 10:59:58 PM
I'm not sure about that, the only Blue Barracuda moat crossing loss that day was "Oracle Bowl," but it could've happened. Here's a rundown of the teams that appeared in Leonardo Da Vinci:

Red Jaguars: Oracle Bowl
Blue Barracudas: Jean Lafitte (as Silver Snakes)
Green Monkeys: Blackbeard
Orange Iguanas: Ponce de Leon
Purple Parrots: Blackbeard
Silver Snakes: Ponce de Leon

Of course, this kind of thing happened a lot in Season 1. :P On a more off topic note, could those Silver Snakes be any shorter? And the Purple Parrot rejects from Blackbeard/Leonardo Da Vinci for that matter? I swear, they look like they're 8 years old or something. :shock:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 29, 2013, 11:05:53 PM
Yeah, at least one more moat reject had to be from Blackbeard. And I assume a couple of the other moat rejects were either from Oracle Bowl or even John Lafitte. Since Blackbeard was the first episode produced that day, I am assuming the other team that didn't make it across appeared as the same team in Leonardo Da Vinci. And the other two teams were just leftovers from Oracle Bowl/Jean Lafitte.

And yeah, that whole production day in general was full of tiny players. Just look at Terry Kay in Jean Lafitte and Jessica in Fountain of Youth.  :P
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 29, 2013, 11:22:21 PM
And just for the record, here is a list of the other moat rejects from their respective production days:

Since we were talking about the Leonardo Da Vinci episode, I decided to look for more moat rejects from earlier episodes in S1L5.

The first image is the Green Monkeys from "Blackbeard's Treasure Map". The image of the right is the same Green Monkeys in the Da Vinci moat. Hopefully this one is easy to see. :P


 (http://s210.photobucket.com/user/tweesterreo/media/LeonardoDaVinciGM_zps1da52640.png.html)

This one is kind of hard to see, but I am pretty sure this is the Blue Barracudas that Roberto and Katie beat in the temple games. The Silver Snakes on the left are from "Jean Lafitte" while the ones on the right are from Da Vinci. The girl shares the same skin tone as the one in Da Vinci while the Silver Snake boy is the same height as the Barracuda boy.

We've got ourselves a match, on both accounts. :grin: I knew the Green Monkeys from Blackbeard had to have returned for Leonardo Da Vinci's moat. Continuing the trend once more for rejects in the first episode returning for the last episode's moat. Unlike the Purple Parrots from Blackbeard, the Green Monkeys at least advanced to the Steps of Knowledge, but lost there. I'll edit that in my post above.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 30, 2013, 02:09:29 PM
And since the Green Monkeys and Purple Parrots in the "Blackbeard" moat returned to the "Leonardo Da Vinci" moat, that definitely mean that the whole Blackbeard episode was taped in S1L5 and not some pilot episode that was taped months before the show began. So that just leaves the Red Jaguars in Leonardo Da Vinci that we haven't found yet? I bet they were a reject team from either Jean Lafitte or Oracle Bowl.

And I am going to check out Belshazzar later. I am curious if any of the rejects in that moat appeared later in Dead Man's Hand.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 30, 2013, 04:22:38 PM
Yeah, I never understood why people called Blackbeard "the first episode ever recorded." I refuse to call it a pilot episode if there was never one filmed to begin with. Even Kirk himself said in the radio interview they never shot a pilot of any kind. Just because it was labeled "Episode 1" doesn't make it the pilot episode. It may have been the first episode edited (26 minutes long and no copyright at the end), but it was NOT the very first episode recorded.

And I'm not sure about Belshazzar's moat. They could've brought some rejects back, but I have no idea.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 11, 2013, 10:32:55 PM
Get ready you guys, because I have a major list of comparisons to post.




I made this speculation above, but the first picture is the Red Jaguars from "The Oracle Bowl of Delphi." They lost at the moat in that episode. The latter picture is from "The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci," where they made it to the Steps of Knowledge, but lost. I'm not entirely confident in this one, but the female players do look alike.




The first picture is the Green Monkeys from "The Golden Chains of Zenobia," where they lost at the moat. The second picture is the same team at the moat in "The Helmet of Joan of Arc." The third picture is the Green Monkeys during the Steps of Knowledge, where they lost. Now, Blue and Green didn't make it out of the moat in Zenobia, so they naturally got a second chance in Joan of Arc. Unlike the Green Monkeys, the Blue Barracudas advanced to the temple games, where they lost to Mandy and Eddie of the Red Jaguars. Plus, the players in the above three pictures look exactly alike.




The first picture is the Purple Parrots from "The Belly Button of Buddha," where they failed at the moat. And when I mean fail, I mean failed.... miserably. Seriously, the Purple Parrots couldn't even get their first player across. :roll: The second picture is the same team in Joan of Arc's moat, where they also failed to make it across. I'm not sure about this one either, but the players look similar, and the Purple Parrot boy has an untucked shirt in both pictures. Plus, Orange and Purple lost at Buddha's moat, and got another chance in Joan of Arc. Unlike the Purple Parrots pictured above, the Orange Iguanas advanced to the Steps of Knowledge, but lost.




The first picture is the Purple Parrots from "The Mask of Shaka Zulu's" moat, where they did not make it across. The second picture is the same team, albeit as Red Jaguars in "Alexander and the Gordian Knot." They did not make it across that moat either. I know it's sort of hard to tell, but both guys in the pictures have similar unibrows, and both girls have the same skin tone and facial expression. Plus, the Blue Barracudas that lost in Shaka Zulu's moat also got another chance at Gordian Knot's moat. Unlike the team pictured above, the Blue Barracudas advanced from the moat, but lost at the Steps.

I have a few more comparisons I want to post, but I don't want to make the post too long. :lol:
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 11, 2013, 10:52:21 PM
Oracle Bowl/Leonardo Da Vinci: Agreed, I think this one is pretty obvious considering this is the only team missing from the "Leonardo Da Vinci" moat. You can tell that both players in their pictures look exactly alike. No complaints here from me on this one.

Zenobia/Joan of Arc: Definitely agree. Considering that "Zenobia" was the first episode from that day, it would make sense that the same team would return as the Green Monkeys in the very last episode that day. And since Mandy and Eddie were Green Monkeys in "Shiva", they would have to be forced to become the Red Jaguars in "Joan of Arc" because the Green Monkeys were already taken. And the girls do definitely look alike too.

Buddha/Joan of Arc: Agreed, you can even see the resemblance between both Purple Parrots boy's face. And the girl looks a like too. Man, if you were given a second chance at the same moat, the least you could do is actually try and make it across the second time. :roll:

Shaka Zulu/Gordian Knot - Agreed, you can tell in both guys face that they are one and the same. The girl in both pictures look the same too with the bushy hair and in the face. The Red Jaguars in the second picture look like Gabby and Joe from Golden Ship. Except the Red Jaguar boy has the unibrow now.  :lol:

Overall, good find. It's amazing how many moat rejects were allowed to come back and S1. We probably still have more that haven't been discovered yet. :P
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 11, 2013, 11:30:49 PM
Yeah, I was gonna make that point about the team switcheroo for Mandy and Eddie. They were forced to be Red Jaguars because the Green Monkey's slot was already taken, since Shiva came after Golden Chains. And yeah, the boy from Shaka Zulu/Gordian Knot does look like Gabby with the unibrow.  I like the creepy glare he's giving in both pictures too. :lol:

Oh, and here are some more comparisons:




The latter two pictures are the Green Monkeys from "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa," where they lost at the moat. Sorry about the subpar quality of pictures, that was literally the best shot I could get of them. They were standing at a terrible angle during the team intros, where they literally stood sideways with their faces turned away from the camera. So thus, they were unrecognizable for me to get a good shot. The first picture is the Green Monkeys from "Alexander and the Gordian Knot," where they eventually advanced to the Steps of Knowledge, but lost. By the way, the second picture is supposed to be the female player, and the third picture is supposed to be the male player. Excuse the ass backwards showing of the teams too. :lol: But I figured they're the same since the players in all three pictures do look alike. Plus, the Silver Snakes also lost at Atahualpa's moat, and got another chance in Gordian Knot's moat. The Silver Snakes however, actually made it to the temple games, but lost to Tim and Retina of the Orange Iguanas.




The former picture of the Red Jaguars is from "The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra," where they lost at the moat. The latter picture is the Green Monkeys from "The Treasure of Anne Bonny." Joanna and Nate of the Green Monkeys made it to the temple games in Anne Bonny, but lost to Katherine and Ron of the Red Jaguars. You can definitely tell the teams in both pictures look alike, especially Nate. Another interesting note is that Joanna and Nate were Red Jaguars first, but forced to become Green Monkeys. So that means Katherine and Ron had to have been the moat rejects in Davy Crockett as Purple Parrots. And were naturally changed into the Red Jaguars in Anne Bonny. I wonder if Ron cheated during Davy Crockett's moat as well. I wouldn't put it past him if he did. :roll:




The first picture is the Blue Barracudas from "The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra." They lost at the moat, like the aforementioned Red Jaguars above did. The second picture is the same team as Silver Snakes in "The Treasure of Anne Bonny." They also lost at that moat. You can tell the boy has the same hairstyle in both pictures, as does the girl, and they share the same height. This continues the trend of all moat rejects being on the last episode of a filming day. Especially since Blue/Purple lost at Lawrence of Arabia's moat, Orange/Purple lost at Davy Crockett's moat, (the latter team needing a reassignment), and Red/Blue lost at Cleopatra's moat, albeit on different assigned teams. It would only make sense to bring back the moat rejects in Cleopatra, and give them another chance for Anne Bonny's moat. Only the team pictured above lost at both moats.

That covers it for S1L5, S1L6, S1L7, and S1L9's production days. I didn't look too carefully at the other S1 days we haven't covered yet. Thoughts? :P
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 12, 2013, 12:28:20 AM
Atahualpa/Gordian Knot - I am not sure about this one. The girl on the left has darker hair than the girl on the right. Plus, the girl on the left looks like she has bigger lips. I have to look at this one more closely by watching both videos.

Snake Bracelet/Anne Bonny - Yeah, that definitely looks like the Green Monkeys Ron and Katherine beat in the "Anne Bonny" temple games. The boy definitely looks the same in both episodes. He has such a girlish look too. :lol: The girl also looks alike too, only her hairstyle was slightly different. I wouldn't have put it past Ron to cheat in the "Davy Crockett" moat either. After all, Davy Crockett was right before Anne Bonny was. So back-to-back cheating wouldn't be surprising. Why did they have to make that loser a Red Jaguar? :roll:

Snake Bracelet/Anne Bonny - The Blue Barracuda team on the left is probably the odd team out in the Anne Bonny moat. Since the Blue Barracudas in "Lawrence of Arabia" came back as the same team in "Anne Bonny", they were forced to use the leftover team. The boys in both pictures definitely looks alike too since they both look heavy set.

Good finds, we basically covered all of S1L6-L9. I am pretty sure there are leftovers from S1L3 at least. I don't remember us talking too much about that production day. So that is probably the only one really needed to be covered. ;)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 12, 2013, 01:02:36 AM
Well, I figured the Green Monkeys from Atahualpa were the same as Gordian Knot since the Silver Snakes also got a second chance in Gordian Knot. The teams getting a second chance in Gordian Knot were Orange/Purple from Sir Edmund Hilary, Blue/Purple (latter getting re assigned) in Shaka Zulu, and then Green/Silver from Atahualpa. I doubt either team from Hannibal got another chance. Especially considering the poor performance of both losing teams in Hannibal's moat.

As for Snake Bracelet, it would only make sense that Red/Blue would get a second chance in Anne Bonny's moat. Since Snake Bracelet came right before Anne Bonny, the moat rejects from the former episode would fill in the last two slots. And yeah, we haven't covered much of S1L3's production day, or S1L4 and S1L8's production day for that matter.

EDIT: By the way, I just did a major update to the chart in the OP. Just to include every contestant we've covered so far. :P
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 12, 2013, 08:22:50 PM
Here are some comparisons/repeat teams I found on S1L4's filming day.




I'm pretty sure this is Annie and Brad from "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart." The first picture is the Parrots in "The Lost Logbooks of Magellan," where they didn't make it across the moat. The second picture is from Lucky Pig's moat, where they made it to the temple games, but lost to Kristen and Scott of the Blue Barracudas. The girls in the first picture looks just like Annie, with the short stature and chubbiness in the face. The boy in the first picture looks like Brad too. Plus, the Red Jaguars who lost at Magellan's moat also got another shot in Lucky Pig, but lost at the Steps of Knowledge. So it would only make sense for Annie and Brad of the Purple Parrots to get another chance as well.




The first picture is the Orange Iguanas from "The Moccasins of Geronimo," that failed at the moat. The second picture is the Orange Iguanas from Lucky Pig where they also failed at the moat. Both girls in the two pictures look alike, as do the guys. Also, Kristen and Scott from Lucky Pig were originally from Geronimo's moat as Red Jaguars, and these Orange Iguanas probably got another chance in Lucky Pig as well. Only to have the Orange Iguanas pictured above lose at both moats.




The former picture is the Orange Iguanas from "Henry VIII's Great Seal," where they lost at the moat. The second picture is the Green Monkeys from Lucky Pig where they also lost. I'm not quite sure on this one, but I figured since the Iguanas from Geronimo got to keep their team colors, the Iguanas from Great Seal's moat were forced to change into Green Monkeys. Since Geronimo did come right before Great Seal after all.




The first picture is the Purple Parrots from "Henry VIII's Great Seal," where they lost at the moat. The second picture is the Silver Snakes from Lucky Pig, who made it to the Steps of Knowledge, but lost. I'm not entirely sure on this one either, but the players on the raft do look alike. This could've been another "team switcheroo" since the Parrots from Magellan got another chance in Lucky Pig, forcing the above team to switch into Silver Snakes.

I know I don't have any real proof, but I figured since most Season 1 moats used leftover moat rejects, the same could apply for this production day as well. We have Red/Purple from Magellan, Red/Orange (the former getting re assigned) from Geronimo, and Orange/Purple from Great Seal, both needing reassignments. So it would only be fitting those would be the 6 teams for Lucky Pig's moat. On another note, what a rough day for the Orange Iguanas. They lost at 3/4 moats, yet the Blue Barracudas make it to the temple 3/4 times.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on June 12, 2013, 09:31:03 PM
Do we have a theory now that all the Moat losers (or most of them on those five episode a day Season 1 Layouts 3,5,6,7,8) are all back on the last episode of that day?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 12, 2013, 10:28:45 PM
It's not a "theory," it's what actually happened, as you can tell by the pictures. Season 1 obviously didn't have as many contestants, so they re used moat crossing rejects and gave them another shot on the last episode of each production day. The last episodes of each day were nothing more than moat rejects from previous episodes. Plus, not all moat losers were given another chance.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 13, 2013, 01:03:24 AM
Good find on the Purple Parrots from "Amelia Earhart"! I always meant to look them up, but never found the time to do so. That definitely looks like Annie from the Purple Parrots in "Magellan". Kind of funny that Kristen and Jim and Annie and Brad originally started in different moats that day, but ended up in the same episode considering Annie was his classmate.

I agree about the others too. Pretty much all the moat rejects from the first three episodes returned in "Amelia Earhart" for a second chance. This is pretty much how it is played out in all of the S1 production days. The first two episodes in general featured moat rejects that returned to the last episode that production day. I am not sure why we never seen this along time ago? Especially for players like Jennifer and Damian (Lost Hammer/Map to the Lost Gold Mine) and Retina and Tim (Shaka Zulu/Gordian Knot). I guess no one really paid attention to the moat a long time ago.  ;)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 13, 2013, 01:07:11 AM
Once again: Scott not Jim. ;)

And yeah, I don't know why we didn't find this sooner. Though the fact that Legends wasn't on YouTube back then may have something to do with it. I can't believe nobody spotted Damian and Jennifer and Tim and Retina at different moats before though. Especially since those two teams actually made it to the temple. I guess nobody really pays attention to moats. :P
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 13, 2013, 08:12:37 PM
I found some more duplicate teams. It's the remaining teams we haven't uncovered yet on S1L8's production day.





The first picture is the Purple Parrots in "The Blue Pearl of the Dragon Lady," where they lost at the moat. The latter two pictures are the same team in ":roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:." Dustin and Nicole of the Purple Parrots made it to the temple games, but lost to Jeremy and Erica. The girls in all three pictures have the same hair and facial expressions as Nicole does. The boys in the three pictures look like Dustin as well, with the Macaulay Culkin lookalike thing going on. And both players share the same height in the moat pictures. If you've been taking notes, you'll remember that the Green Monkeys also lost at Blue Pearl's moat, but turned into Red Jaguars for Silk Ladder's moat. So if the Green Monkeys/Red Jaguars got another chance in Silk Ladder, then the Purple Parrots had to have gotten another chance as well.




The first picture is the Green Monkeys from "The Codebook of Mata Hari," where they lost at the moat. The second picture is the Blue Barracudas from ":roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:," who gave those ridiculous answers on the Steps of Knowledge. Both players in the above pictures look exactly alike, and share the same height. Plus, Jeremy and Erica were originally Orange Iguanas in Mata Hari's moat, and also lost at the same moat. Naturally, both teams had to undergo team changes as Blue Barracudas and Silver Snakes respectively. Since there was already a Green Monkey and Orange Iguana team waiting for a retry in Silk Ladder's moat.

That covers it for S1L8's production day. I figured there were two repeat teams (besides the King Tut moat rejects) from both Mata Hari and Blue Pearl that we haven't uncovered yet. Sure enough, my suspicions on those two above teams were right. :P
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 13, 2013, 08:53:08 PM
Yeah, those players look like the Purple Parrots Jeremy and Erika faced in ":roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: ". The girl in both pictures have the same hairstyle and dark hair color. I can't believe I never noticed those two earlier since I watched the "Blue Pearl" many times. :P

And the second picture is obvious too. The boy in both pictures shares the same style of bangs and the girl in both pictures has the same long hair.

So that pretty much covers the " :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: " moat then. There was definitely no rejects from "Lost Lariat" because the six rejects from the first three episodes took all the spots in " :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: ". I am thinking a couple of the rejects in "Belshazzar" came back in "Dead Man's Hand". Need to watch that episode again.  ;)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 13, 2013, 08:59:06 PM
Yeah, we still have some spots to fill for Dead Man's Hand and Kamehameha. Then we'll have the entire first season done! :D
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 13, 2013, 08:59:30 PM
I don't know about Belshazzar, since that was taped all in one day. In Dead Man's Hand's moat, Sara and Josh got another chance, as did the Purple Parrot rejects from Galileo. It could be that the two moat rejects from Belshazzar got another chance at Dead Man's Hand. But what about the other two slots? Were those of contestants that never actually lost at a moat?

Also, before I update the list on the previous page and the OP, are we confident that the Green Monkeys from Atahualpa were the same Green Monkeys in Gordian Knot? I know the pictures aren't very good, but since the Silver Snakes also got another chance in Gordian Knot, I figured the Green Monkeys had to as well. And do we know where the Silver Snakes from Joan of Arc came from? I'm guessing they were the Purple Parrot rejects from Shiva's moat, like Mandy and Eddie were the Green Monkey rejects from the same episode.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 13, 2013, 09:04:14 PM
It is very possible that the Golden Jaguar/Gordian Knot Green Monkey team was one in the same. I mean the 5 other slots from that production day already filled up the Gordian Knot moat. So that means the last moat reject had to come from "Atahualpa". Unless the Green Monkeys in Gordian Knot was a "Hannibal" moat reject.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 13, 2013, 09:15:50 PM
You know what, I rewatched the moat for Atahualpa/Gordian Knot, and I do think the Green Monkeys are the same team.


 (http://s210.photobucket.com/user/tweesterreo/media/GordianKnotGM_zpsad9fa05b.png.html)

Notice how the female Green Monkey in "Atahualpa" has the same hairstyle as the one in Gordian Knot. They have to be one and the same. Not to mention, this team follows the theme of the first three moat rejects from that day reappearing in the last episode of that day. Plus, the guys in both moats share the same height. 
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 13, 2013, 11:03:16 PM
I knew that was them. The reason I didn't take a picture of their "intro" was because they were both standing at a bad angle and I couldn't get a clear shot. So Green/Silver did get another chance in Gordian Knot. Only the Silver Snakes made it to the temple games, but the Green Monkeys lost at the Steps of Knowledge. That tidbit, as well as the S1L8 players have been added to the chart in the OP. We still need to find the Silver Snakes from Joan of Arc, which I have a feeling they were the Purple Parrot rejects in Shiva. If anyone could get a comparison, that would be great.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 14, 2013, 04:09:44 PM
I think I found the "missing" team from Joan of Arc's moat.




The first picture is the Purple Parrots from "The Stolen Arm of Shiva," where they lost at the moat. The second picture is the Silver Snakes from "The Helmet of Joan of Arc," where they also lost at the moat. Both teams look exactly alike, and share the same height. Remember how Mandy and Eddie lost at Shiva's moat as Green Monkeys? Same thing happened to the Purple Parrots, and like Mandy and Eddie, they also needed a team re assignment. However, Mandy and Eddie eventually made it to the temple, but the team pictured above lost at both moats. Continuing the trend of all moat rejects competing for the last episode of the day.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 14, 2013, 05:12:27 PM
Yup, that definitely looks like the same team in Shiva/Joan of Arc. :P It also fits the theme of the first three episodes moat rejects all return for the last episode on that production day. That must've meant that the "Stone Marker" rejects didn't get a chance in the temple because the 6 slots were filled from Buddha/Shiva/Zenobia.

Now we just need to look at S1L3. All of the moat rejects probably came from Sultan Saladin/Alhambra/Genghis Khan since they were the first 3 episodes that day. I don't think you need to bother with "The Trojan Horseshoe" at all. ;)
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 14, 2013, 05:22:11 PM
I'll add the Shiva rejects to the OP then. As for S1L3's production day, anyone know where the Red Jaguars from Kamehameha came from? They were the team Robbie and Tina beat in the temple games. The only Red Jaguar moat crossing loss in the filming day was the Trojan Horseshoe. Though they could've gotten a team re assignment, like Robbie and Tina did.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 14, 2013, 05:26:33 PM
I got two moat rejects from S1L3:


 (http://s210.photobucket.com/user/tweesterreo/media/KamehamehaBB_zps4b81a0eb.png.html)

The team on the left is the Orange Iguanas that were eliminated in the moat in "Genghis Khan". On the right is the same Blue Barracuda team in "Kamehameha". You can tell both boys share the big 90's glasses. Since the Orange Iguanas from "Sultan Saladin" returned as their same team in "Kamehameha", that means that this Iguana team had to return as the Barracudas.


 (http://s210.photobucket.com/user/tweesterreo/media/KamehamehaRJ_zpsf37ae1b2.png.html)

This is the Red Jaguar team that Robbie and Tina faced in "Kamehameha". On the left, they were moat rejects in "Alhambra" as the Green Monkeys. On the right, the same team returned as the Red Jaguars that lost in the temple games. This one should be pretty obvious with the Red Jaguar boy sharing the same bangs.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 14, 2013, 07:43:19 PM
We've got ourselves some matches. Now all that is missing is the Green Monkeys from Kamehameha. Any idea what episode they were originally from? We have the Orange Iguanas from Sultan Saladin, Green/Purple (former needing re assignment) from Alhambra, and Orange/Purple (latter needing re assignment) from Genghis Khan. Maybe the Green Monkey rejects from Kamehameha were from Trojan Horseshoe?
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 15, 2013, 12:41:34 AM
The Green Monkeys also lost in the moat in "Sultan Saladin" I believe. Since the Green Monkeys from "Alhambra" were forced to become the Red Jaguars in "Kamehameha", I wouldn't be surprised if the GM rejects from Sultan Saladin came back as the same team in Kamehameha. I am not quite sure though, but The Trojan Horseshoe is also a possibility too.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 15, 2013, 12:45:11 AM
No, Purple also lost at the moat in Sultan Saladin, along with Orange.
Title: Re: Contestants in multiple episodes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 15, 2013, 01:09:23 AM
I am pretty sure the Purple Parrot rejects from "Sultan Saladin" are the Green Monkeys in "Kamehameha".


 (http://s210.photobucket.com/user/tweesterreo/media/KamehamehaGM_zps50cdcdd6.png.html)

The girl on the left has the same big funky nose as the girl on the right. The boy almost look the same height also in both pictures. The biggest mystery though is why did this team return as the Green Monkeys in Kamehameha? The Purple Parrots from "Alhambra" returned as the same team color in "Kamehameha". But Sultan Saladin was before Alhambra, so this team should've been Purple Parrots. Maybe they didn't want to be the Parrots again? I will check the Trojan Horseshoe to see if the Green Monkeys from that episode are in Kamehameha.  ;)
