Contestants in multiple episodes
« 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
