A montage of different scenes is shown, with the ghosted overlays of players sitting in what appears to be a waiting room, as the Legends theme plays. A voiceover narrates over the music.

“When you watch an episode of Legends: Wild Jungle, you see action, excitement, and hard work by the contestants, but what goes on behind-camera is just as action-packed, exciting, and takes just as much hard work. You are about to go Behind the Scenes of Wild Jungle.” Two halves of a Pendant of Life crash together in the center of the screen to form the show’s logo, which is then pushed back to let the words “BEHIND THE SCENES OF WILD JUNGLE” appear along the bottom of it.

A flash of light segues to the face of the man who had just spoken—Kirk Fogg. “Welcome,” he says. “I am Kirk Fogg, host of Legends of the Hidden Temple: Wild Jungle, and today, I’m going to take you behind the scenes of the show. We’re going to have never-before-seen footage, as well as an exclusive backstage look on our contestants, things that you most likely have never noticed, and finally, secrets that up till now, you will not have known about. So, without further ado, let’s get behind the scenes for some exclusive information.”

A flash of lightning brings us to a shot of Kirk standing atop the Steps of Knowledge. “These are the Steps of Knowledge,” he says, “that test our contestants for their knowledge of Olmec’s legends. Today, Olmec’s gonna be testing me for my knowledge of this show. Don’t look at me, now—I was forced into this… Anyway, let’s get started, Olmec. What’s your first question for me?”

Olmec asks: “How long is each episode of Legends?”

“Now, that is an interesting question,” replies Kirk. “Each episode of the show is about 24 minutes long, but that’s only what you see. If we kept all our footage, each show could be anywhere between 30 to 50 minutes long. Now, if we kept all this footage, our longest episode is to date actually ‘The Incorrect Map of Ptolemy’—our Moat crossing lasted over half an hour, which was later edited down to the three minutes that you see, but this was what really happened—”

We segue to a clip of Kirk standing in front of a camera with the deck of the Moat in the background. “All right, we just finished filming this Moat crossing, and it took us 31 minutes,” he whispers, as we see players being escorted off the stage in different directions. “Our kids seem really tired right now—I don’t even know if it’s from either crossing the Moat, or just standing there, waiting for the last team to hit their gong…” He laughs and then the clip fades back to Kirk standing on the Steps.

“… and because of restrictions, we can never show you all that extra footage in the episode,” he finishes. “But this is our ‘Behind the Scenes’ special, am I right…?”

Quote
“We’re looking for  four teams, who’re they gonna be?” The Red Jaguars slam down on their gong, and the camera segues back to the Moat. “We have three teams now, who’s gonna be our fourth?” asks Kirk rhetorically. The camera zooms in on the Blue Barracudas, who are very slowly edging forward along their pole. “Blue Barracudas moving slowly but surely—that might help them!” The girl on the Green Monkeys falls into the water, only about ¼ of the way along her pole, while the girl on the Purple Parrots falls in just a few seconds after climbing back onto her pole. “Purple Parrots are down again!” shouts Kirk.

“… and that was just the beginning,” says Kirk via voiceover as the clip rolls on. “Just look at how tired our players were and how out of breath I was 20 minutes into the round!”

Quote
“Ohhhh, this is taking much longer than I expected,” laughs Kirk as the mist on the Moat thins more and more as the seconds tick by. “Oh, it’s getting tougher and tougher!” The Green Monkey boy moves very slowly along the rod, but suddenly slips and falls into the Moat again. “Green Monkeys… oh, he’s tired! But he’s gotta go back again…” The boy begins again, his partner cheering him on loudly. “Here come our Purple Parrots, once again!” narrates Kirk, as the girl on the Purple Parrots tries shooting out onto the rod, but quickly falling in again, causing the last traces of mist under her to dissipate. “Ohhhh, who’s gonna move on?” cries Kirk.

The clip pauses and fades back to a close-up of a laughing Kirk, still standing on the top step. “But all that out there on the Moat was just a fragment of what went on that day,” he then says. “Right after we finished, we found out that the guys up in the booth were arguing about how we might’ve missed a little illegal move out on the Moat.” A muted clip of three men talking, appearing to be slightly aggravated appears briefly. “We brought our judges up, and they gave us the ruling—the Red Jaguars were not sent back when they were supposed to, letting the Blue Barracudas move on to the Steps of Knowledge. At that point, we were already about an hour and a half behind schedule, so when I rushed out to film the next round, some of our cameramen headed backstage to talk with our contestants.”

A clip of a hallway appears, with the hand-held camera moving down to a door that says “Green Room”. A hand reaches out to open the door, and then the camera enters the room, with contestants on couches and chairs around the room, with the faint light and sound of a television evident. It moves over to a Purple Parrot girl sitting on a couch, chatting loudly with the Orange Iguana girl sitting next to her. “Hey, girls,” says an unseen voice. The girl immediately looks at the camera.

“So, you just spent half an hour out on the Moat,” says the cameraman. “How do you feel about that?”

The Purple Parrot girl widens her eyes momentarily, and then breaks out in laughter. “Tired…” she laughs. “I tried to cross probably about 50 times out there and kept falling in…”

The clip fades back to Kirk. “And that’s our proof that there’s a lot of stuff that we do that never gets seen on television,” finishes Kirk. “So, is that a good enough answer, Olmec?”

“Yes, that is correct,” replies Olmec. Kirk laughs, and then moves down to the second step. “So, do you have another question for me, Olmec?” Kirk then says.

“Oh, yeah,” replies Olmec. “What is it like to be a contestant on Legends of the Hidden Temple?”

“Well, seeing that I’ve never been a contestant on the show before, it would be hard for me to answer that question, now, wouldn’t it?” laughs Kirk in response. “But there have been so many contestants on our show—and they know exactly what it’s like to be one. Here’s what some of our contestants have to say.”

A clip of Kirk standing in a plain room slides onscreen. “I’m here backstage at Nickelodeon Studios in California, and today, we’re about to find out what it’s like to be a contestant on Legends: Wild Jungle. And what better way to find out than asking the contestants themselves?”

A Temple Games track begins to play as we cycle through clips of various contestants being interviewed.

“This is the highlight of my vacation so far,” laughs a redheaded girl with a small face, freckles, and wearing glasses and a Purple Parrots shirt, as the words “Candace Garling, ‘The Shark-tooth Medallion of the Hawaiian King’” appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen as she talks. “It’s a really fun experience, and I’d definitely do this again… if I had the chance to.”

We cut to a shot of a Red Jaguar girl with clear blue eyes and cascading dark brown hair, sitting on a couch in a room empty, sans a few stray adults and other contestants walking around. “It was fun, I guess…” she laughs, as the words “Amanda Kestner, ‘The Stolen Shovel of Erik the Red’” appear. “I mean, I haven’t gone into the Temple yet, but it was really fun… and tough… and I really liked the first game, when he had to like, swing across the pool and then land on a slide and go down.” She smiles and laughs as she tries to search for words to continue. “Just… really, really, fun—I love it. Yeah, I just love it!”

The next two players are a pair of Silver Snakes, the boy an average-sized boy with short, slightly curly brown hair, and equally brown eyes, and the girl, small, with black hair and eyes, and small purple-colored glasses—they are Michael Kempton and Iris Hsu from “The Secret Diary of Burton”. “It was amazing,” says Michael. “I mean… we got through it all, and I mean, I’m happy that we got… uh, what did we get?” He laughs.

“Like, a bike, something else, and a vacation, I think…?” laughs Iris in response. “Probably,” agrees Michael, also laughing. “Yeah, I’m happy about that, but it was really more the challenges and the fun of, you know, competing on a game show that really made me excited.”

“For me, it’s the chance to be on TV,” Iris then says. “I’m trying to become an actress, so there’s… like… not really a… worry about being on-camera, in front of an audience, you know...? It’s just that… I’ve never been on TV before, so I’m definitely excited, but to have so much fun doing so, playing a game instead of acting, it’s really… unique, and I really loved it.”

“It’s so much fun,” says Amber Tullos, Silver Snakes, of “The Gold-Lined Gauntlet of Peter the Hermit”, a brunette girl with dark eyes and slightly tanned skin. “I had so much fun at… The Moat, and I loved the game with the ropes—that was awesome. I can’t wait to go inside the maze.”

We then see Kelly Katon, a short Purple Parrot girl with blonde hair and blue eyes, from “The Regal Robes of the Sun King”. “Oh… that was so fun,” she laughs. “It was really tough, like when I had to cross this thing with all these steps that would drop if it was the wrong one, and I fell so many times that I thought I wouldn’t even make it across once, but I put like… one of the crowns on the statues… and my opponent didn’t, so, I’m happy there, I guess.” She laughs again.

The screen transitions to an Orange Iguanas girl with shiny black hair and dark brown eyes, wearing a pair of glasses. “So fun,” says the girl—Tina Wong, of “The Silk Sari of Muhammad Jinnah”. “I fly ten thousand miles for this… so… I thought ‘better be good’, and is good, so… I think is worth it…” She laughs before continuing. “No show like this in Hong Kong, so… we have so many good show and still nothing like this… is very good.”

Two Red Jaguars then come onscreen—the boy short, with black hair and dark brown eyes, and the girl with light brown hair and blue eyes—Wayne Chang and Sharron Turcios of “The Sheathed Sword of George V”. “Well… we made it,” laughs Wayne. “It was really, really tough in the Temple… I think there was this one room where there were all these lions, and I put myself inside, and I didn’t know which door opened. It’s really confusing—I really need to watch this show more.” He laughs again before continuing. “Yeah, I think that’s it. You pretty much have to know everything about this Temple to be the best at it.”

“I actually didn’t have to go inside the Temple,” Sharron then says, “because he never got taken out by the guards, but I did have to do the… uh… games, and I had to spin this giant wheel, and it was so difficult to keep my balance and move the thing, because it’s like on this slope, so I’m already sliding down… and you have to walk on it too? I was like, ‘forget it, how am I gonna do this thing?’ at first, and I actually ended up winning, so I was really surprised. It’s really great. Anyone that has the chance to come on this show should be really happy.”

The next player is a short Blue Barracuda boy with long, curly, brown hair—Matt Caplan, from “The Space Helmet of Yuri Gagarin”. “That… was awesome,” he says, appearing to be catching his breath. “I… am tired… but it was really awesome…” He pauses and pants for a few seconds before continuing. “I can’t wait for the Temple.” The camera then zooms out to show his partner standing next to him, and that they are standing atop a gigantic staircase.

We then see a Purple Parrot girl, average-sized, with long, slightly wavy, blonde hair, and bronzed skin. “Is so fun,” she says with a German accent, as it is revealed that she is Julia Grün from “The Secret Scrolls of Francis the First”. “Zhust… I pley two games already. De first, I slide on dis… paht, and put paint… and zen de secohn one I go zru dis ohbstical. Is fun. I don’t hahf dis in Germany, so…” She laughs, and the clip pauses and then fades back to Kirk, still standing on the second Step of Knowledge.

“When we come back,” he says, “we are going to see more people talk about the Legends experience, as well as see people experience Legends in a way that you will never get to see on television—right after this!” The camera cuts away from Kirk, then moves towards the side of the stage, panning past Olmec and the Tiger’s Den. It focuses on the Walk of Faith as two halves of a Pendant of Life crash together, forming the show’s logo, with the words “Behind the Scenes” appearing underneath, and then we fade to commercial.

The Treasure Room / Wild Jungle EP: The Golden Moments
« on: September 15, 2010, 03:35:10 AM »
To find more Wild Jungle episodes, click THIS LINK to go to the Official Episode Guide thread!




The screen fades in to reveal lush greenery while faint ghosted images of contestants in various situations appear on the plants as the Legends theme music plays.

As the montage ends, the screen fades to show a man in a blue shirt and denim jeans walking along the edge of a large pool of misty water. “Hi,” he says. “My name is Kirk Fogg, host of Legends of the Hidden Temple: Wild Jungle, and today, it is a pleasure for me to showcase the golden moments of the show.

“We’ve seen teams come and go, wins and losses, funny moments and sad ones, but out of all of them, some moments stood out to us. So sit back and enjoy Legends: The Golden Moments.”

Two halves of a pendant of life crash together to form the show’s logo, which then pushes back and the words “The Golden Moments” appear below it.

The screen wipes to reveal Kirk standing in front of the Moat. “If you’ve seen our show,” continues Kirk, “you’ll know that any team that wants to make it to Olmec’s Temple needs to cross the Moat before they do anything else, and there’s so many ways to do it. There have been successful crossings and not-so-successful ones. Let’s take a look at some of the best moments we’ve ever seen out on our misty Moat.” A stone background pushes its way into the screen with words on it, made out of vines.

GOLDEN MOAT CROSSINGS

“The Shark-tooth Medallion of the Hawaiian King”:
Quote
“There they goooooo!” yells Kirk excitedly as the teams jump down into the water, each bringing the rope back and swinging across without much trouble. “They’re all doing well!” comments Kirk. “Let’s see if they can get the partners over—and they do, good job!” All the partners then try swinging over, and in moments the teams start gonging in.

“We’ve got one—” says Kirk as the teams begin banging down on the buttons “—two—three—we’ve got our four teams, right here!”
“The Secret Script of Miguel Cervantes”:
Quote
All six teams jump in and bring back their rope with fairly even speed, but the Orange Iguanas fall back into the Moat after trying to swing across. “Oh, it’s neck-and-neck… It’s a really close match!” comments Kirk as the players toss their ropes back. “But it looks like we may have our first team…it’s the Green Monkeys!” The Green Monkeys high-five each other, then slam down on their gong ahead of everyone else.

“Who’s gonna be the rest?” asks Kirk as the other teams attempt to catch up. “It’s very close… Oh, my… Looks like we might have…The Red Jaguars! And the Silver Snakes!” The two teams both hit their gongs with split-second timing, right as— “The Blue Barracudas are here! We’ve got our four teams!”
“The Secret Saddle of General Grant:
Quote
All six girls begin running on the rollers, with the Green Monkeys’ girl misunderstanding the rules—she pathetically takes a headfirst dive down the rollers and is sent back by the stunt spotters. “No,” says Kirk, “you can’t use your hands in this one—you just have to keep walking…keep walking!” The other five teams have less trouble, but the Orange Iguanas can’t seem to really get across without stumbling or slowing down, and eventually they collapse and are sent back about 2 feet away from the deck. “It’s tough because these rollers are slippery!” comments Kirk as the remaining four teams send their other players over—and at this point, it’s a little obvious who’s going to have a landslide victory, but…

“Oh no!” shouts Kirk as the Red Jaguars almost do a complete 360-degree flip in the air, landing on his back! “C’mon, you didn’t touch your hands…keep going, keep going, keep—Blue Barracudas in! Silver Snakes in! Purple Parrots in!” Suddenly, a wave of teams arrives and all gong in, closely followed by—

“THE RED JAGUARS!” yells Kirk. “We have our four teams!”
“The Golden Amulet of Haakon the Seventh of Norway
Quote
Six players edge forward towards the menacing logs spinning over the water. “This isn’t easy!” reminds Kirk. “If they don’t keep their feet moving, they’ll be in the water in no time.” The girl on the Red Jaguars, galloping like a horse, keeps her feet moving—but too fast, and loses her footing, falling into the water early. The boys on the Silver Snakes and Blue Barracudas seem to be just moving across the logs as fast as they can, while the Orange Iguanas steadily jog on the log as they move sideways, pulling each vine to the furthest point it can go. “The Green Monkeys are catching up!” says Kirk, right as the boy on the Purple Parrots—already halfway across—falls into the water. Meanwhile, the first players on the Orange Iguanas, Blue Barracudas, Silver Snakes, and Red Jaguars are already on the opposite deck and cheering on their partners. “This is a tough Moat crossing!” comments Kirk.
“The Useless Fishing Hook of the Chinese Fisherman
Quote
“It’s an exercise of balance and teamwork,” Kirk explains, “because they’ve gotta push on each other to keep their balance—but if they push too much, they might fall in.” The Blue Barracudas seem to have the idea at this point, as with the Orange Iguanas, and they move across the railway quickly, while the Green Monkeys lag behind. “Oh, red fell into the water!” shouts Kirk as the Red Jaguars, one on top of the other, fall into the Moat with a massive splash. “Woah!” Kirk exclaims as the spray from their drop is sent in different directions.
“The Dried Snake-hair of Medusa”
Quote
“And off they go!” shouts Kirk as the teams begin to make their way over the log jam. “Woah, these teams are blazing today!” He seems to be taken aback by the speed of the players, with the boys on the Green Monkeys, Purple Parrots, and Silver Snakes simply splashing their way across using the net, placing only one foot on each log as they spring across the water. “This is amazing!” exclaims Kirk as water splish-splashes around the set. The girl on the Orange Iguanas falls into the water, however, but at merely 15 seconds into the round, three boys are standing on the opposite deck. “This looks like it’s gonna be a quick Moat today,” Kirk comments as the second players on four teams begin to cross.
“The Silk Sari of Muhammad Jinnah”
Quote
“The trick to this one,” explains Kirk, “is so that when you lean against each other, you can balance—but you’ve got to be careful not to put too much weight on one of you!” The girl on the Green Monkeys falls backward, and her partner falls between the railway tracks, and have to go back. “The Red Jaguars are coming up fast!” comments Kirk, as the Red Jaguars reach the end and hit their gong. “We’re still looking for three more teams, though…” The Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes are the next two to finish, banging down on their moss-covered buttons at about the same time. Meanwhile, the Purple Parrots collapse into the water in the same direction—the girl falling RIGHT on top of her partner as they splash into the misty water—and the Blue Barracudas go ahead.
“The Propeller of Jimmy Angel’s Plane
Quote
“This is a hard Moat,” comments Kirk. “You’ve got so many things going on… balancing on the platform and pulling yourself across with that rope!” The boy on the Blue Barracudas is going quickly across the Moat… but his partner isn’t holding onto the rope that she needs to pull the platform back for herself! “Oh, no, grab it, grab it!” shouts Kirk as the girl on the Blue Barracudas leaps forward grabs the rope—but a little too far, and ends up jumping right into the Moat as a result.
The clip freezes and the live shot slides back into the screen. “That last one was just… brutal,” comments Kirk, laughing. “Well, needless to say, she did get the rope in the end, but ended up getting very, very wet by doing so. Anyway, what you actually see every time you watch the Moats is sometimes just a tiny little section of it. Just watch what happened in this episode…”

A wide shot of a second-season Moat crossing—identifiable as the one from “The Incorrect Map of Ptolemy”—comes onscreen, with “60X” in the upper corner of the screen, and a timer rapidly increasing in time in the lower corner. “What you’re seeing here,” explains Kirk, “is a Moat crossing that took us a half hour to finish.” The clip rolls on, with players falling off from the rods left and right as the counter continues to count up and up until it reaches 31:27, when the fourth team finally hits their gong.

“Needless to say, that was a tiring day,” Kirk says, once the clip fades back to a close-up of him, now standing on a large lily pad in the middle of the Moat. “Anyway, that’s just the first bit of our Golden Moments special. When we return, we’re gonna see some more of Legends’ Golden Moments—right after this!”

THE LEGENDS OF LEGENDS

Quickest Failure by Capture
Bill Evans and Julia Dunn
Green Monkeys
“The Journal of Lewis and Clark”
Time remaining: 1:58

The camera zooms out from Kirk as the commercial outro music plays, and replays of the clips seen earlier come on to the screen. The pendant forms, and under the show’s logo, the words “The Golden Moments” appear, and then we fade to commercial.

The Treasure Room / Wild Jungle EP: The Stashed Treasure of the Sundance Kid
« on: September 11, 2010, 04:38:10 AM »

The camera makes its way through lush greenery, and the palms move away as ambient animal noises are heard. Portions of a temple are shown, and suddenly the jungle ends, and we see Olmec’s face light up and shout, “LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE!”

The show’s title card—a pendant of life—crashes together on the screen, and the camera shifts to focus on the temple and its rooms. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

The pendant splinters and Kirk is seen crawling out of the Jungle Crevice to run right into the center of the stage and up the Steps of Knowledge as he begins his narration.

“Thank you, thank you!” says Kirk. “It's nice to see you! Thank you, Olmec. Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today?”

Olmec replies, “The Legend of The Stashed Treasure of the Sundance Kid!”

“Oh, The Stashed Treasure of the Sundance Kid!” says Kirk. “Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Stashed Treasure—will it be The Red Jaguars?”

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

“The Blue Barracudas?”
“The Green Monkeys?”
“The Orange Iguanas?”
“The Purple Parrots?”
“Or the Silver Snakes?”

“They’re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,” continues Kirk, “and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s temple, but first they’ll have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.”

Olmec instructs:
“Before you, eight planks form a bridge across the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, step out onto the first plank and try to move to the next. Two of the planks on each bridge will collapse, and when you step on one of them, you must go back and start again. When the first player makes it across, that will be their partner’s signal to cross the same way. When both partners have reached the other side, run over and hit the gong!”

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate, which—in turn—lights up a bright silver.

“The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,” finishes Olmec. “Hey, teams!” calls Kirk. “Are you ready?”

The teams excitedly reply, “Yeeaahhhh!”

Kirk then asks, “Olmec, are you ready?”

“Rock on!” replies Olmec.

“Let’ get started!” shouts Kirk. “On your marks, get set… GO!”

The boy on the Green Monkeys immediately falls, his first plank tipping him off into the water, while the boys on the Red Jaguars and Orange Iguanas steadily move ahead—until the Orange Iguana steps on his third plank, sending him into the misty water. “It’s a game of luck, but then it turns into a game of memory,” explains Kirk. “Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes haven’t fallen yet…” The girl on the Blue Barracudas falls into the water, followed by the boy on the Red Jaguars closely after. The boys on the Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes still continue neck-and-neck… until the Silver Snake falls into the water on his fifth plank. “Orange Iguanas are making their move again!” shouts Kirk. “OH! But they found their second unstable plank, and they’ve got to start again…” The boy on the Purple Parrots finally finds his first unstable plank—his sixth plank—but is overtaken quickly by the boy on the Red Jaguars, who scampers across his bridge a third time, avoiding his fourth and fifth planks completely, becoming the first player on the deck. “All right, nice job—now his partner’s gonna come over,” says Kirk. “Here comes one of the Green Monkeys…” The boy on the Green Monkeys is the next player on the deck, followed by the boy on the Orange Iguanas and the girl on the Blue Barracudas shortly after.

The boy on the Silver Snakes accidentally loses his balance on one of the planks, tumbling into the water. “Here comes that Red Jaguar… we’re gonna have our first team…” begins Kirk, and is interrupted by the sound of the red gong ringing. “And we do—it’s the Red Jaguars!” The girl on the Blue Barracudas falls in a third time, mis-stepping on her second collapsing plank, while the girl on the Orange Iguanas picks up her pace, hopping over her seventh plank, and springing her way off the eighth to meet her partner, who bangs down on their gong. “And we’ve got two teams!” shouts Kirk. “And three!” The Blue Barracudas also slam down on their gong, leaving only one open spot left. “We need our fourth team—here come the Green Monkeys,” commentates Kirk. “Oh, but the Purple Parrots overtakes them—she is fast! She gongs in! We’ve got our four teams!”

Kirk runs over to the Purple Parrots. “Wow, I almost thought the Purple Parrots weren’t gonna make it, but they blazed over here for a close shave,” he says. “Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots—and the Orange Iguanas—and the Blue Barracudas—and the Red Jaguars.”

“The Silver Snakes and Green Monkeys gave it a great effort,” he says. “They’re not going away empty-handed. We’ve got a great gift for them, and here’s what it is.”

Dee reads the prize:
“Geeeeeet ready for wet n’ wild fun! The Shot Blast Super Soaker has a 1.1 liter tank and can fire a jet of water 25 feet to hit your opponents! Super Soaker, from NERF!”

Which one are we going to hear about today?”

Olmec replies, “The Legend of The Wild West Hat of Buffalo Bill!”

“Ooh, the Wild West Hat of Buffalo Bill!” says Kirk. “Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Wild West Hat—will it be The Red Jaguars?”

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

“The Blue Barracudas?”
“The Green Monkeys?”
“The Orange Iguanas?”
“The Purple Parrots?”
“Or the Silver Snakes?”

“They’re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,” continues Kirk, “and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s temple, but first they’ll have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.”

The teams excitedly reply, “Yeeaahhhh!”

Kirk then asks, “Olmec, are you ready?”

“OH, YEAH!” replies Olmec.

“He definitely is,” laughs Kirk. “All right, teams! On your marks, get set… GO!”

“And off they go!” shouts Kirk as the teams begin racing out on their planks. We see close-ups of the girls on the Orange Iguanas and the Purple Parrots both falling into the water after stepping on their first unstable planks—their second and third planks, respectively—and are soon followed by the Red Jaguars and Purple Parrots. “Whoa, everybody’s falling in!” exclaims Kirk, as the boy on the Green Monkeys also falls in, his fourth plank tipping him into the water. “And now the Silver Snakes are down,” he then declares, as all six players have now fallen in once. “But here come the Orange Iguanas! Can she make i—OHH!” The girl on the Orange Iguanas steps on her unstable seventh plank, backs away, but is too late and falls in. “Oh, it’s gettin’ messy out there…” Kirk’s voice trails off as the players continue to splash their way into the water, most discovering their second collapsing plank. The girl on the Silver Snakes avoids the eighth plank and makes it onto the deck. “Ooh, nice move!” commentates Kirk. “Now time for her partner to get over…”

In a flash, the girl on the Orange Iguanas hops off onto the deck. “Nice move!” shouts Kirk, as we then segue to a shot of the girl on the Purple Parrots step on a collapsing plank—but stays on and avoids it, becoming the third player onto the deck. The boy on the Orange Iguanas is seen racing across the planks, avoiding his bridge’s collapsing planks, and he quickly rushes off to hit the gong. “Okay, we’ve got our first team,” announces Kirk, “but we’re still looking for three more…” The girl on the Blue Barracudas finally begins to run across his bridge, hopping right over his third plank, while the boys on the Purple Parrots and Red Jaguars cross more cautiously.

“We have our second team!” yells Kirk as the Blue Barracudas gong in. The camera shows the girl on the Green Monkeys losing her balance about halfway across the bridge, and then the sound of a third gong. “Purple Parrots are in!” declares Kirk. “We’re looking for on—” He is interrupted by the chime of a fourth gong “—the Red Jaguars are in! We’ve got our four teams!”

Kirk runs over to the Orange Iguanas. “All right, Orange Iguanas made it all the way across with no trouble at all,” he says. “Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Orange Iguanas—and the Green Monkeys—and the Blue Barracudas—and the Red Jaguars.”

“The Purple Parrots and the Silver Snakes gave it a great effort,” he says. “They’re not gon—uh, going away empty-handed. We’ve got a great gift for them, and here’s what it is.”

The camera makes its way through lush greenery, and the palms move away as ambient animal noises are heard. Portions of a temple are shown, and suddenly the jungle ends, and we see Olmec’s face light up and shout, “LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE!”

The show’s title card—a pendant of life—crashes together on the screen, and the camera shifts to focus on the temple and its rooms. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

The pendant splinters and Kirk is seen crawling out of the Jungle Crevice to run right into the center of the stage and up the Steps of Knowledge as he begins his narration.

“Thank you, thank you!” says Kirk. “It's nice to see you! Thank you, Olmec. Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today?”

Olmec replies, “The Legend of The Four-Starred Badge of George Marshall!”

“Oh, the Four-Starred Badge of George Marshall!” says Kirk. “Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Four-Starred Badge—will it be The Red Jaguars?”

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

“The Blue Barracudas?”
“The Green Monkeys?”
“The Orange Iguanas?”
“The Purple Parrots?”
“Or the Silver Snakes?”

“They’re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,” continues Kirk, “and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s temple, but first they’ll have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.”

Olmec instructs:
“Before you lies a bridge of eight planks. When Kirk gives the signal, step out onto the first plank and try to move to the next. But be careful—two of the planks on each bridge will collapse, and when you step on one of them, you must go back and start again. When you safely make it across, that will be your partner’s signal to cross. When both partners have reached the other side, run over and hit the gong!”

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate, which—in turn—lights up a bright silver.

“The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,” finishes Olmec. “Teams!” shouts Kirk. “Are you ready?”

The teams excitedly reply, “Yeeaahhhh!”

Kirk then asks, “Olmec, are you ready?”

“This rock is ready to roll!” replies Olmec.

“All right, teams,” says Kirk. “On your marks, get set… GO!”

“And there they go!” begins Kirk. “OH! Red Jaguars and Silver Snakes went right in!” The boys on the Red Jaguars and Silver Snakes fall immediately off their collapsing first planks, but the girls on the Orange Iguanas and Purple Parrots move ahead quickly. “It’s about luck the first time round, but memory the second time,” reminds Kirk, as the boy on the Green Monkeys falls into the water on his fourth plank. The girl on the Purple Parrots falls over stepping onto her fifth plank, ending up in the misty water with a large splash. “Whoa!” exclaims Kirk. “Purple Parrots are down—here come the Red Jaguars, making an excellent comeback…” The boy on the Red Jaguars moves forward, but as he steps on his seventh plank, it collapses, sending him into the water once again. “Oh, but they have to go back. The Orange Iguanas are doing good on their second try!” After about 45 seconds into the round, the girl on the Orange Iguanas is the first player to make it onto the deck, followed closely after by the boys on the Red Jaguars and Green Monkeys. “All right, now their partners have to make it across,” explains Kirk, as the girl on the Purple Parrots makes it over to the deck.

With a good minute already gone by, the boy on the Orange Iguanas quickly scrambles across his bridge of planks, swiftly avoiding the sixth and seventh planks, and making it onto the other side safely. “We’ve got our first team!” shouts Kirk, as the Orange Iguanas gong in. “—and our second—they’re the Orange Iguanas and the Purple Parrots! We’re looking for two more teams, though.” The girl on the Blue Barracudas falls in after mis-stepping on her seventh plank. “Oh, no, Red Jaguars are down!” commentates Kirk. “Looks like we might have the Red Jaguars…” The Red Jaguars finally reunite on the deck after about a minute and 20 seconds of the crossing, and they slam down on their gong together. “We’re looking for one more team—” begins Kirk, but is interrupted by the ring of the Green Monkeys’ gong. “We’ve got our fourth team! Stop right there!”

Kirk is seen jogging over to greet the Purple Parrots. “Nice job by the Purple Parrots,” praises Kirk. “Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots—and the Orange Iguanas—and the Green Monkeys—and the Red Jaguars.”

“The Silver Snakes and the Blue Barracudas gave it a great effort as well,” he says. “We’re not gonna be sending them away empty-handed. We’ve got a great gift for them, and here’s what it is.”

Dee reads the prize:

Well, this forum has had five years of existence, and as far as I'm concerned, every single one of them has been different for me. So, here's the question: which year was your favorite?

If I had to pick a favorite, I would have to go with this year - 2010. We've had tons of activity (not to jinx it or anything :)

“Oh, the Lucky Turban of Bahadur of India!” says Kirk. “Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Lucky Turban—will it be The Red Jaguars?”

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

“The Blue Barracudas?”
“The Green Monkeys?”
“The Orange Iguanas?”
“The Purple Parrots?”
“Or the Silver Snakes?”

“They’re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,” continues Kirk, “and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s temple, but first they’ll have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.”

Olmec instructs:
“Before you lies a path of eight planks that form a bridge across the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, step out onto the first plank and try to move to the next. But be careful—some planks will collapse, and if they do, you must go back and start again. When you safely make it across, that will be your partner’s signal to cross. When both partners have reached the other side, run over and hit the gong!”

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate, which—in turn—lights up a bright silver.

“The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,” finishes Olmec. “Hey, teams!” calls Kirk. “Are you ready?”

The teams excitedly reply, “Yeeaahhhh!”

Kirk then asks, “Olmec, are you ready?”

“After you,” replies Olmec.

“Okay!” says Kirk. “On your marks, get set… GO!”

The first players on the six teams—boys for red, blue, orange, and silver, and girls for green and purple—begin to cross the Moat, stepping on the planks, carefully hesitating before moving on to the next. “It’s really a guessing game first,” explains Kirk, “but once they know which planks sink, it’s a game of memory.” The third plank on the Green Monkeys’ bridge collapses, sending the female Green Monkey into the water with a splash, and a creaking noise indicates that the fourth plank on the Orange Iguanas’ bridge has collapsed as well. “Green and Orange are down!” shouts Kirk. “Now they have to do it again and see if they can remember which one collapsed…” The Red Jaguars are next to fall, with their sixth plank tilting downwards to send the boy on the Red Jaguars sliding into the water. The Green Monkeys and Orange Iguanas are already on their second try, however, and the Purple Parrots fall into the water soon after. “We’re still looking for our first team,” narrates Kirk. The first players over are the boy on the Orange Iguanas and the girl on the Green Monkeys, followed soon after by the Blue Barracudas—who simply guessed their way across, somehow avoiding both the planks on their bridge that would collapse. “But that means that his partner will have to guess as well,” reminds Kirk.

“Here come the Red Jaguars!” shouts Kirk as the team gets their first player across, and the second player dashes across the bridge, avoiding the first collapsing plank—but forgetting about the second! “OH! Red Jaguars down! The Orange Iguanas are catching up quickly…” The girl on the Orange Iguanas also runs across the bridge quickly, making sure to not step on the wrong planks, and getting over to the deck first. “The Orange Iguanas are our first team!” declares Kirk as the Orange Iguanas hit their gong. “We’re looking for three more…” The girl on the Silver Snakes finally begins to cross, making her way across quickly, avoiding the fourth and fifth planks smartly, and continuing her way onto the deck, slamming down on her team’s gong by herself before celebrating with her partner. “We’ve got two teams—three teams now!” We see that the Blue Barracudas have gonged in, and the Purple Parrots have fallen into the Moat again. “We’ve got room for one more team—looks like it might either be red or green,” says Kirk. “Who’s it gonna be?” We see a wide shot, with the Red Jaguars and Green Monkeys racing neck-and-neck towards the deck, but at the last second, the boy on the Green Monkeys barely edges out and hits his team’s gong just a second before the girl on the Red Jaguars. “We’ve got our four teams!” shouts Kirk. “That’s it! Stop right there!”

The camera cuts to Kirk standing with the Silver Snakes beside their gong. “The Silver Snakes made it over here nice and quick,” he says. “Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes—and the Orange Iguanas—and the Green Monkeys—and the Blue Barracudas.”

“The Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots gave it a great effort too,” he says. “They’re not gonna be going away empty-handed. We’ve got a great gift for them, and here’s what it is...”

The camera makes its way through lush greenery, and the palms move away as ambient animal noises are heard. Portions of a temple are shown, and suddenly the jungle ends, and we see Olmec’s face light up and shout, “LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE!”

The show’s title card—a pendant of life—crashes together on the screen, and the camera shifts to focus on the temple and its rooms. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

The pendant splinters and Kirk is seen crawling out of the Jungle Crevice to run right into the center of the stage and up the Steps of Knowledge as he begins his narration.

“Thank you, thank you!” says Kirk. “It's nice to see you! Thank you, Olmec. Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today?”

Olmec replies, “The Legend of The Sheathed Sword of George the Fifth!”

“Ooh, the Sheathed Sword of George the Fifth!” says Kirk. “Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Sheathed Sword—will it be The Red Jaguars?”

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

“The Blue Barracudas?”
“The Green Monkeys?”
“The Orange Iguanas?”
“The Purple Parrots?”
“Or the Silver Snakes?”

“They’re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,” continues Kirk, “and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s temple, but first they’ll have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.”

Olmec instructs:
“Before you, an ancient raft floats in the water, and above it is a path of vines across the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, both of you, climb into the raft and use the first vine to propel yourself to the next vine. Then grab on to the next vine and do it again. When you reach the other side, climb out of your raft, run over, and hit the gong!”

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate, which—in turn—lights up a bright silver.

“The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,” finishes Olmec. “Okay,” says Kirk Kirk. “Teams! Are you ready?”

The teams excitedly reply, “Yeeaahhhh!”

Kirk then asks, “Olmec, are you ready?”

“But of course,” replies Olmec.

“All right, then,” says Kirk. “Teams! On your marks, get set… GO!”

Immediately, the teams begin to get into their rafts. “They’re scramblin’,” commentates Kirk as the rafts slowly begin moving forward. “Now comes the hard part. It takes a lot of strength to get you across that misty Moat, just by pulling themselves using vines…” Indeed, the Orange Iguanas seem to have some trouble pulling themselves across; on the other hand, the Silver Snakes simply glide forward in the water almost flawlessly, moving from one vine to the next with swift movements. “I like the way they’re moving,” remarks Kirk as the Silver Snakes pass their sixth vine and bump right into the side of the deck. “The Silver Snakes look like they’re gonna be our first team—they are!” They slam down on their gong less than 15 seconds into the round, far ahead of their opponents. “We’ve got room for three more teams, though,” reminds Kirk, as we switch back to a wide shot and see that the Red Jaguars and the Blue Barracudas are the next leaders. The girl on the Purple Parrots is desperately reaching out to grab the fifth vine—which is probably a good foot away. The Green Monkeys are just simply stuck halfway between the third and fourth vines, but are still ahead of the Orange Iguanas, who are even further behind, struggling to make progress. “We’ve got our second team!” yells Kirk as the Blue Barracudas ring their gong.

“We’re looking for two more teams,” announces Kirk, as the teams out on the Moat continue to pull themselves across, the Red Jaguars ahead of the other three teams, reaching the deck seconds later. “And here come the Red Jaguars!” The girl on the Red Jaguars pulls herself out, helping her partner out of the raft before they both slam down on their team gong together. They are closely followed by the Purple Parrots, who soon climb out as well. “—and we’ve got our four teams!” declares Kirk when the Purple Parrots hit their gong. “Stop right there—we’ve got ‘em!”

We now see Kirk standing next to an excited pair of Silver Snakes. “Silver Snakes did a great job! They had no trouble whatsoever,” he says. “And going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes—and the Purple Parrots—and the Blue Barracudas—and the Red Jaguars.”

“The Orange Iguanas and the Green Monkeys gave it a great effort,” he says. “They came up a little short, but we’re not gonna let them go empty-handed. We’ve got a nice gift for them, and here’s what it is.”

Dee reads the prize:

Which one are we going to hear about today??

Olmec replies, ?The Legend of The Secret Scrolls of Francis the First!?

?Ho-ho, it?s the Secret Scrolls of Francis the First!? says Kirk. ?Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Secret Scroll?will it be The Red Jaguars??

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

?The Blue Barracudas??
?The Green Monkeys??
?The Orange Iguanas??
?The Purple Parrots??
?Or the Silver Snakes??

?They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,? continues Kirk, ?and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they?ll have to cross the moat, and Olmec?s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.?

Olmec instructs:
?Before you, an ancient raft floats in the water, and above it, a path of vines. When Kirk gives the signal, both of you climb into the raft together and grab the vine in front of you. Then pull yourself to the next vine and do it again to cross the Moat. When you reach the other side, both of you, climb out of the raft, and hit? the gong!?

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes? gong to demonstrate, which?in turn?lights up a bright silver.

?The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,? finishes Olmec. ?Hey, teams!? calls Kirk. ?Are you ready??

The teams excitedly reply, ?Yeeaahhhh!?

Kirk then asks, ?Olmec, are you ready??

?Let?s get crackin?!? replies Olmec.

?Yes, let?s,? remarks Kirk. ?On your marks, get set? GO!?

The six teams all begin to climb into the khaki-colored rafts floating in front of them and the vines begin to sway as the teams reach out for them. ?All they can do is grab those vines and pull themselves across,? explains Kirk. The Red Jaguars are in first position as the rafts begin to move through the mist-covered Moat, followed closely behind by the almost-tied Silver Snakes and Purple Parrots. ?Orange Iguanas having some trouble,? narrates Kirk. ?They? can?t quite reach those vines, there?? As the Purple Parrots speed up, they catch up to the Red Jaguars, with them grabbing their fifth vines almost simultaneously. ?It?s gonna be neck-and-neck between the Purple Parrots and the Red Jaguars,? says Kirk, as they climb out onto the deck, the girl on the Purple Parrots struggling to do so. Two gongs go off seconds after each other?the Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots have gonged in, in that order. The Silver Snakes and Blue Barracudas are now at their fifth vine, while the Green Monkeys and Orange Iguanas trail behind. ?Here come our teams! Who?s going on to the Steps of Knowledge?? Kirk is interrupted by the Silver Snakes? gong, as the boy on the Silver Snakes slams down on it. ?We?ve got our third team?it?s the Silver Snakes,? announces Kirk. ?We?ve still got room for one more team, and it looks like it?s gonna be the Blue Barracudas?it is!? The girl on the Blue Barracudas hits her team?s gong as Kirk shouts. ?We?ve got our four teams!?

Kirk runs over to the Silver Snakes, who are standing beside their gong. ?The Silver Snakes are tired, but they made it,? he says. ?Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the mighty Silver Snakes?and the Purple Parrots?and the Blue Barracudas?and the Red Jaguars.?

?The Green Monkeys and the Orange Iguanas gave it a great effort,? he says. ?They?re not going away empty-handed. We?ve got a great gift for them, and here?s what it is.?

Soundstage 18 / Clockwork EP: Michael/Gareth/Joey
« on: August 20, 2010, 07:12:18 PM »
NOTE: This is an episode of a completely fan-made game show called Clockwork. Any comments or complaints about the project as a whole should be posted here.

Clockwork Episode 7 (107D)
Michael vs.Gareth vs. Joey


The camera fades in to reveal a man standing in front of a large blank screen. ?Hello everybody,? he says. ?My name?s Josh Painter, and welcome to Clockwork!? The audience is seen cheering before the camera cuts back to Josh, this time a shot with a view of his podium too.

?And this is the game show,? he says once the audience quiets down, ?that all contestants need to do to win big pass through stunt and trivia rounds and just get a tad messy. Without further ado, I present today?s ?Clockworkers?!?

A view of a crazily-colored wall is shown, and it spins round to reveal three contestants behind three lecterns which slide out onto the main set. ?Let?s meet them one-by-one!? exclaims Josh, and the camera begins to pan through the players as he introduces them.

?Dressed in red is the 14-year-old Michael! He likes to shoot hoops after school as well as on his school team, and he?s ready for a brain-bending board game anytime.?

?Dressed in blue is the 13-year-old Gareth! He plays baseball, basketball, and softball?let?s see if his love for sports can get him to the Time Twister.?

?And dressed in yellow is the 13-year-old Joey! He collects DVDs and old videotapes, and he loves to rollerblade all around his neighborhood. Let?s hear it for today?s players!? The audience gets even louder, then quiets down as the camera fades back to close-ups of Josh and the three players.

?Welcome to the show,? Josh begins. ?I hope you don?t mind getting messy, because our first round will bring super sloppy fun. Now, I?m going to ask a $25 question, and the first player to buzz in with the correct answer also gets to pick a card on the TV screen?? Josh turns around and points at his backdrop, which comes to life and displays five cards ??and perform the stunt on it for $50. But remember, if the stunt doesn?t get complete, the next question is worth $75: the regular ol? 25 plus the lost 50. Are you ready to play, contestants?!?

The contestants cheer and shout in response. ?Well, then let?s get started!? shouts Josh. ?Here?s our first $25 question??

He asks: ?True or false: two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom forms a water molecule??

Joey rings in first: ?True??

?You are correct!? replies Josh as the audience cheers. ?That?s where we get the chemical short form ?H20?. You have the right to pick a card? which one will it be, Joey??

?The second to the left card,? he says, pointing his selection. ?Well, let?s look at it!? says Josh, pulling a card out of his podium and reading off it. ?It says: ?This is a job that will surely please; it?s your chance to be the big cheese!? Come on down, I think it?s time for our first stunt?? Josh and Joey walk down into the stunt stage as the audience cheers and the stagehands wheel in a circular vat filled with an amber-colored substance.

?This stunt is called ?The Big Cheese?,? Josh says once the drumbeat cue that plays when contestants walk down finishes. ?And it?s fairly simple?inside this big tank of nacho cheese is a silver pinball which is no larger than a fingernail, probably. It can be anywhere in this vat, and you can do whatever you want?throw the stuff out if you want?but if you find the ball in 15 seconds or less, we?re gonna give you $50, all right? On your mark, get set? GO!?

Joey hops into the vat and begins to use his hands to push around in the gooey mess for the pinball. ?Yeah, don?t be afraid to get messy!? narrates Josh. ?Keep looking?? [0:09] He now starts to swipe the cheese out of the container and onto the floor, hoping to find the ball this way? but time runs out before he can find anything silver inside.

?Well?? says Josh after the horn finishes blowing, ?we?ve got lots of cheese all over the stage? but no pinball in your hands! We?re gonna come back with a $75 question right after this!? The screen switches to a montage of clips, before the logo appears and the screen fades out with the theme music ending in a clock-ticking sound.

The camera makes its way through lush greenery, and the palms move away as ambient animal noises are heard. Portions of a temple are shown, and suddenly the jungle ends, and we see Olmec?s face light up and shout, ?LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE!?

The show?s title card?a pendant of life?crashes together on the screen, and the camera shifts to focus on the temple and its rooms. ?With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!?

The pendant splinters and Kirk is seen crawling out of the Jungle Crevice to run right into the center of the stage and up the Steps of Knowledge as he begins his narration.

?Thank you, thank you!? says Kirk. ?It's nice to see you! Thank you, Olmec. Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today??

Olmec replies, ?The Legend of The Cracked Coin of Emperor Alexius!?

?Ooh, the Cracked Coin of the Emperor Alexius!? says Kirk. ?Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Cracked Coin?will it be The Red Jaguars??

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

?The Blue Barracudas??
?The Green Monkeys??
?The Orange Iguanas??
?The Purple Parrots??
?Or the Silver Snakes??

?They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,? continues Kirk, ?and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they?ll have to cross the moat, and Olmec?s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.?

Olmec instructs:
?Before you, an ancient raft lies in the water, and above it, a path of vines. When Kirk gives the signal, climb into the raft together and grab the vine in front of you. Then pull yourself to the next vine and do it again to cross the Moat. When you reach the other side, both of you, climb out of the raft, and hit? the gong!?

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes? gong to demonstrate, which?in turn?lights up a bright silver.

?The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,? finishes Olmec. ?Hey, teams!? calls Kirk. ?Are you ready??

The teams excitedly reply, ?Yeeaahhhh!?

Kirk then asks, ?Olmec, are you ready??

?Ooh, yeah!? replies Olmec.

?Teams!? shouts Kirk. ?On your marks, get set? GO!?

?And there they go, into the rafts,? says Kirk, beginning his commentary as the six teams climb into their circular rafts. ?They have to grab the vines above them and? pull themselves across that Moat?? All six teams seem fairly even, and the screen switches to a wide shot of the Moat?the Blue Barracudas are just ahead of the other teams. Behind them are the Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes, while the other teams are briefly blocked in the close race. ?Oh, the Red Jaguars are falling behind?? Kirk comments as the Blue Barracudas pull their way past the fifth vine and their raft hits the side of the Moat. ?Looks like we?re gonna have our first team?? Kirk pauses as the Blue Barracudas climb out of their raft and slam down on their gong. ??and it?s the Blue Barracudas!? yells Kirk, but only seconds before two more gongs are heard. ?Orange and Silver are in! We?re still looking for one more team?? We change to a camera focused on the green and orange gongs, to show the Green Monkeys run over to hit their gong. ??and we?ve got our four teams!? announces Kirk. ?Stop right there!?

The next shot shows Kirk standing next to the Silver Snakes by their gong. ?Going onto the Silver?the Steps of Knowledge,? he declares, ?are the Silver Snakes?and the Orange Iguanas?and the Green Monkeys?and the Blue Barracudas.?

?The Purple Parrots and the Red Jaguars gave it a great effort too, though,? he says. ?We?re not sending them away empty-handed. We?ve got a great gift for them, and here?s what it is.?

The camera makes its way through lush greenery, and the palms move away as ambient animal noises are heard. Portions of a temple are shown, and suddenly the jungle ends, and we see Olmec?s face light up and shout, ?LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE!?

The show?s title card?a pendant of life?crashes together on the screen, and the camera shifts to focus on the temple and its rooms. ?With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!?

The pendant splinters and Kirk is seen crawling out of the Jungle Crevice to run right into the center of the stage and up the Steps of Knowledge as he begins his narration.

?Thank you, thank you!? says Kirk. ?It's nice to see you! Thank you, Olmec. Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today??

Olmec replies, ?The Legend of The Crumpled Sail of Jacques Cartier!?

?Woah, the Crumpled Sail of Jacques Cartier!? says Kirk. ?Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Crumpled Sail?will it be The Red Jaguars??

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

?The Blue Barracudas??
?The Green Monkeys??
?The Orange Iguanas??
?The Purple Parrots??
?Or the Silver Snakes??

?They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,? continues Kirk, ?and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they?ll have to cross the moat, and Olmec?s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.?

Olmec instructs:
?Before you is an ancient river raft and above it, a path of vines. When Kirk gives the signal, climb into the raft together and grab the vine in front of you. Then pull yourself to the next vine and do it again to cross the Moat. When you reach the other side, climb out of your raft, and hit the gong!?

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes? gong to demonstrate, which?in turn?lights up a bright silver.

?The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,? finishes Olmec. ?Okay, teams!? calls Kirk. ?Are you ready??

The teams excitedly reply, ?Yeeaahhhh!?

Kirk then asks, ?Olmec, are you ready??

?Ever ready!? replies Olmec.

?Well, let?s get started then,? says Kirk. ?Teams! On your marks, get set? GO!?

?There they go, into the rafts?they?ve got to pull themselves only with the vines,? commentates Kirk as the six teams all scramble to get inside their rafts. ?It?s not easy,? reminds Kirk. ?These things spin!? He is right?the Red Jaguars? circular raft continuously spins as they pull their way across the Moat, while the Silver Snakes just quickly move forward, clawing at the vines. ?Orange Iguanas falling behind! Blue Barracudas and Green Monkeys are doing good?here come the mighty Purple Parrots!? We see a wide shot of the Moat?the Silver Snakes are in first place, being closely followed by green and blue, in that order. ?Here come the teams!? shouts Kirk as the Silver Snakes get out of their now water-filled raft and slam down on their gong. ?We?ve got our first team!? announces Kirk, right as two more gongs are heard?the Blue Barracudas and Green Monkeys have also finished. ?And our second and third?who?s gonna be our fourth?? A final gong answers his question. ?It?s the Red Jaguars! That?s it!?

We see Kirk standing beside the Silver Snakes, who are barely wet. ?The Silver Snakes fought hard?they came over here first,? he says. ?Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes?and the Green Monkeys?and the Blue Barracudas?and the Red Jaguars.?

?The Purple Parrots and the Orange Iguanas gave it a great effort as well,? he says, ?and they?re not going away empty-handed. We?ve got a great gift for them, and here?s what it is.?

Dee reads the prize:
?It?s a gift package from Nerds brand candy! The tiny, tangy, crunchy candy with INTENSE fruit flavors. Taste the magic, from the Willy Wonka Candy Factory!?

The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today??

Olmec replies, ?The Legend of The Crown of Carloman!?

?Oh, it?s The Crown of Carloman!? says Kirk. ?Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Crown?will it be The Red Jaguars??

At this point, the camera focuses on each team as they are introduced.

?The Blue Barracudas??
?The Green Monkeys??
?The Orange Iguanas??
?The Purple Parrots??
?Or the Silver Snakes??

?They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests,? continues Kirk, ?and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they?ll have to cross the moat, and Olmec?s gonna tell us how they have to do it today.?

Olmec instructs:
?Before you, a log spins, and above it hangs a path of vines. When Kirk gives the signal, step out onto the log, and grab on to the first vine. If you fall off the log, you must got back and start again. If you stay on, grab the next vine and make your way across the spinning log. When both partners have reached the other side, run over and hit the gong!?

Kirk hits the Silver Snakes? gong to demonstrate, which?in turn?lights up a bright silver.

?The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round,? finishes Olmec. ?Okay, teams!? calls Kirk. ?Are you ready??

The teams excitedly reply, ?Yeeaahhhh!?

Kirk then asks, ?Olmec, are you ready??

?Let?s rock!? replies Olmec.

?You heard the man, teams,? says Kirk. ?On your marks, get set? GO!?

The first player from each team starts reaching out for the first vine and stepping onto the log. ?You have to be on your feet all the time,? explains Kirk, ?because you?ll fall if you stop moving.? The Orange Iguanas lose their rhythm?and balance?and fall into the water with a large splash. The girl on the Purple Parrots, moving quick on her feet, skips her way to the end, becoming the first player to land on the opposite deck. ?Woah, Purple Parrots are blazing!? comments Kirk as a spotter signals for her partner to come across. ?But so are the Red Jaguars and Green Monkeys?and here come the Blue Barracudas!? The boy on the Red Jaguars and the girl on the Green Monkeys soon step off onto the deck as well, about 30 seconds into the Moat. ?The Orange Iguanas are catching up now,? says Kirk as the girl on the Orange Iguanas reaches the ? mark along the log. Meanwhile, the girl on the Red Jaguars is struggling to hold on, falling into the water. ?Looks like our first team is gonna be the Purple Parrots!? shouts Kirk. ?And it is!? A gong sounds as we segue to a shot of the Purple Parrots repeatedly slamming down on their gong and celebrating.

?We?ve got room for three more teams now,? declares Kirk. The girl on the Blue Barracudas falls off while her partner cheers her on from beside his team?s gong. ?OH!? moans Kirk. ?She almost made it? but she has to go back and try again! Silver Snakes really need to get a move on?they?ve still got to get their first park?partner across!? The Green Monkeys are second to hit their gong, followed seconds later by ??the Red Jaguars! They?re both going on to the Steps of Knowledge!? Now only the Orange Iguanas, Blue Barracudas, and Silver Snakes are left on the Moat, and the mist above the water begins to thin. ?Oh, this sure is tough!? comments Kirk as the boy on the Orange Iguanas falls into the Moat, much to the disappointment of his partner on the other side. ?Oh, looks like our fourth team?s gonna be the Blue Barracudas!? The girl on the Blue Barracudas reaches the end, and sprints over to slam down on the top of her gong, lighting it up. ?We?ve got our four teams!? shouts Kirk.

We then see Kirk run over to greet the Purple Parrots. ?Purple Parrots were over here like a flash!? he remarks. ?Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots?and the Green Monkeys?and the Blue Barracudas?and the Red Jaguars.?

?The Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes gave it a great effort too,? he says, ?and they?re not going away empty-handed. We?ve got a great gift for them, and here?s what it is.?
