WOW, what an interview! I hope you guys all got a chance to listen to it. HEre are some inportant facts that we've learned...


--Kirk Fogg is his legal name.
--Kirk Fogg ran through the temple at the beginning of each season for fun. He won all three times, but wanted to throw up afterwards. He didn't have to worry about temple guards.
--Olmec's mouth had tear in first season.
--First show took 18 hours to tape, and was only one taped that day.
--Usually, four episodes were taped in a day.
--Kirk Fogg has no memorabilia from show.
--Somebody vomited in Pit of Despair one episode while doing the temple run. Had to towel her off, then made her keep going (for editing purposes).
--Kirk doesn't watch Legends often at all.
--Kirk was born in LA.
--He's making a new movie that takes place in Paris.
--He hates the first season for his performance and his shorts, as opposed to jeans.
--Has two sons: Jake and Luke Fogg. One four years old.
--Loves the Go-Gos
--One particular moat took 45 minutes to tape.
--Kirk attributes success of Dee Baker to himself.

Phew! That's almost everything. The interviewer said he'd have an MP3 file of the interview later. Very cool interview, no?

Yeah, sure Kirk won all three temple runs. I bet the artifact was never in the central shaft.

The interview was very funny.  Later on, Kirk joked about the girl's vomit being an artifact, calling it "The Vomit Bag of Sarah Paulson" and "narrating" the story as Olmec.  No idea if that was a contestant's actual name or not :lol:...I guess the only other way to tell which episode it was from would be to look for choppy editing in the pit.

Other highlights:
He liked the Silver Snakes, calling them a "scrappy, working class" team representing the proletariat.
He didn't get to take home prizes that the contestants failed to win.
Everyone, including audience members and cameramen, yelled directions at confused temple runners.
Not only is he a fan of the Go-Gos, he dated a band member.
His rivarly with that bastard Mike O'Malley.
Kirk will never die, thanks to the powers of Olmec.
Someone FINALLY picked up "Distortion" for distribution.  Kirk said it will be out on video early next year.

And I'm glad someone finally said it in the public arena: Kirk Fogg is the greatest name ever.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

--Kirk attributes success of Dee Baker to himself.

Does this mean credit goes to Fogg, or Baker?  If it's to himself, was he joking?  I don't get it.

I want to listen to the interview.  I am very intrigued as to how they got him on the show.

Kirk joked around saying that if it weren't for himself (Kirk Fogg), Dee Baker would never have become so successful, because Kirk insists that he (Kirk Fogg) convinced him (Dee Baker) to look for carreer opportunities outside of Orlando, Florida. Does that make it more clear? :P

Also worthy of mentioning... None of the crew members knew the show was not returning for a fourth season. As a result, Kirk couldn't get any props from the show because he wasn't aware his contract was up. :wink: Note that this completely quelches the supposition that the Chandragupta episode was the last because of Kirk not saying goodbye. He didn't know whether it was his last episode or not at the time.

Thanks for the clarification.

I wonder if he ever gets sick of talking about Legends.

If I saw him, in person, I would LOVE to ask him so many questions about the show, but it was ten plus years      ago and he's moved on, and I'm sure he wouldn't want to talk about the past.

If you're wondering, the station that did the interview is the on-campus radio station for SUNY Albany in Albany, New York, which happens to be 8 miles from where I am right now.  Had I known about it earlier (as in before it occurred), I might have given it a live listen on the radio (although their range for their signal isn't exactly great).

Well, he did swear on Get the Picture (at least once. One time is debatable).

Anyways, I wonder who the girl who vomited was. Now we're going to have to scan all the episodes to look for a girl who looks sick. I wonder if it was Tara (from The Milk Bucket of Freydis) after she fell into the pit. That would be an interesting task for someone to undertake. It would also be incredibly time-consuming.

I unfortunately missed the interview as well, but thanks for posting all the info!

I imagine it was a little bit of both. I'm sure he had at least a small rivalry going.

I think Kirk was jealous that Mike got partnered with Moira, and he had to share a dressing room with the temple guards.

Funny thing about potential vomiting and The Milk Bucket...

Right after she opens the door to the Laser Light Room, Tarrah turns away from the camera and there's a sudden cut to her going into the crawl tube, her head already in the door. She also looks vaguely ill after finishing the run (but that could just be attributed to her being exhausted and slightly injured from brickity-breaking herself). The voiceover might also be the explanation why Kirk gets her partner's name wrong - he may have been recording it much later, and someone may have told him the kid's name was Brandon. Any thoughts...?

Oh, i never noticed that before. That little cut scene is weird. Never noticed the voiceover for this run... i just thought Kirk mixed up the names... it's not that foreign of him to do things like that. :P

Wow, that's really weird... How could I not have noticed that? There were no visible production defects that would have caused them to retape that scene, and it would also account for the Kirk voice-over.

The only problem is that Kirk said the person's name was "Sarah Paulson" in the interview (a woman who has acted in a number of movies and TV shows), but hey, "Sarah" sounds a lot like "Tarrah." Who knows?

I can't even remember a single girl named Sarah that entered the temple off the top of my head. I'm usually pretty good at remembering names too.... Maybe he actually did mean Tarrah?

Well, again, Sarah Paulson is a recognized actor who was born in 1975, according to Wikipedia. Unless they shared a name by coincidence, they're not the same person. :wink:

The only Sarah I can think of is the one from Wild Bill Hickock and the Dead Man's Hand, but I don't think it's her.

And actually, now that I think about it, I wonder how thorough the cleanup job was in the Pit, since later in the run she falls back into the Pit after trying to jump over it. Ugh.  :shock:

If you had looked at the previous replies in this thread, you'd have known he's still alive. I'd recommend doing that in the future as a general practice. :wink:

You know how in Wild Bill Hickok and the Dead Man's Hand the players all gave both their first names and last names? The Sarah there's last name was Sarah Beckmeyer.  It can't be her.  I'm convinced he meant Tarrah from The Milk Bucket of Freyd?s.
