Legends: Rebirth-The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens
« on: October 09, 2009, 07:47:39 PM »
Episode 19: The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens

The camera winds and twists its way through a thick jungle of strange and exotic plants. After a few wrong turns, it finally stops in front of an ancient Mayan temple. At the base of the temple, a giant stone head sits. Suddenly, the head’s eyes light up and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!” These words appear on the screen. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans swings in on a rope. He drops down and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you, everybody! Nice to see everyone again! It’s good to see you again, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth. The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens,” Olmec replies.

“Ooh, the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens,” Kirk responds. “Well, one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the sweatband—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass some of the toughest tests they’ve ever taken, but in the end, only one team will get the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they’ll do it today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you stands an ancient swinging bridge that has fallen on its side. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will grab on to the railing of the bridge with one hand, and then take their partner’s hand with the other. Then, both players will carefully walk across the bridge, sideways, to the other side. If you fall, or if your feet touch the water, you must both go back and start again. Once you reach the other side, step off the bridge, help your partner down, and run over and hit the gong.” Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“All right, let’s get started,” says Kirk. “Teams, are you ready?”
The teams all scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“You know it,” Olmec replies.
“Okay,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

“There they go, onto the bridge!” Kirk narrates as all six teams lock hands and begin making their way across. Slowly but steadily, they all inch their way across, with the Blue Barracudas taking a slight lead. The Orange Iguanas lose their grip on the bridge’s railing about halfway across, and the spotters tell them to go back. The Blue Barracudas make it across first, and they rush over to hit their team’s gong. The Green Monkeys and Purple Parrots gong in next. “Three teams—we need one more!” Kirk narrates. Just as the Red Jaguars are about to reach the last step, the two players let go of one another’s hand, and the spotters wave them back. “Oh, he let go of her hand—now they have to go all the way back!” Kirk narrates. The Silver Snakes, however, successfully make it all the way, and the two players step off the bridge to hit their gong together.

“That’s it! We’ve got our four teams!” Kirk shouts as he rushes over and stands next to the Silver Snakes. “Silver Snakes, slowly but surely, they made it across, and goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Purple Parrots,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Green Monkeys…and the Blue Barracudas! The Red Jaguars and the Orange Iguanas didn’t quite make it, but that’s all right—we’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Gamestop.

Legends: Rebirth-The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens

Kirk and the remaining four teams are now standing atop the Steps of Knowledge. “As the quest continues, it’s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens. But teams, pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend could very well bring you closer to Olmec’s Temple…”

Olmec begins to tell the story:
“One of the most gifted athletes in the history of the Olympics was the African-American runner Jesse Owens. In 1936, Jesse was a member of the American track team at the Olympics in Berlin, Germany. At that time, Germany was under the tyrannical rule of Adolf Hitler, who hated both black people and Americans. Hitler’s hand-picked team of world-class athletes were both confident and cocky.
“‘We’ve gotta beat these guys,’ said Jesse’s coach. ‘America’s counting on you, Jesse.’
“Jesse rolled his eyes. ‘Gee…thanks for the load on my shoulders, coach.’
“Later that day, Jesse and the other runners were lined up at the starting position.
“‘Do you really think you can beat a superior runner?’ one of the German athletes asked Jesse.
“‘No,’ Jesse replied. ‘I can beat you, though.’
“The race started with a loud gunshot. Jesse ran as hard and fast as he could, the German runners hot on his heels. The German athletes pulled out in front, but Jesse did not give up. He pushed himself, and eventually crossed the finish line first, winning his first gold medal and setting a new Olympic track record. Jesse would go on to win three more gold medals that day. Even though Hitler still refused to give Jesse his medals, the American crowd lifted Jesse up on their shoulders, and rode him into town, celebrating his victory over the German athletes. Legend has it that in the victory celebration, Jesse took off his yellow sweatband and tossed it into the crowd. Someone caught it, and brought it here to the Temple. Your quest is to find the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens and bring it back here.”

“Thanks a lot, Olmec,” Kirk states. “So tell us, where is the sweatband?”

“The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens can be found in the Inventor’s Workshop,” Olmec responds. The camera zooms in on the bright yellow sweatband on the guardrail of the room before fading back to Kirk.

“All right, then,” Kirk replies. “Teams, you’re now standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a moment, Olmec’s gonna ask you a question. If you think you know the answer, I want you to stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. If you’re right, you’ll be able to move down to the next level, but if you’re wrong or run out of time, I’ll give the other teams a chance to answer.” Kirk begins descending the Steps. “The first two teams to make it to the bottom level will be one step closer to Olmec’s Temple. Olmec…we’re now ready for your first question.”

Olmec begins:
“Was Jesse Owens a star in: basketball, baseball, or—”
The Blue Barracudas ring in. “Track?”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Blue Barracudas step down to the next level.
“Blue Barracudas step down,” Kirk narrates. “Next question.”

“Jesse Owens competed in the Olympics in what city: London, Paris, or Berlin?”
The Blue Barracudas ring in again. “Berlin!”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Blue Barracudas proceed to the penultimate step.
“Already, the Blue Barracudas are just one step away from the Temple Games,” Kirk narrates. “But remember, we need two teams. Next question, Olmec.”

“What country is Berlin located in: Austria—”
The Silver Snakes ring in. “Germany?”
“That…is correct,” Olmec replies. The Silver Snakes move down to the next level.
“Now the Silver Snakes are on the board,” Kirk narrates. “Next question, Olmec.”

“Who ruled Germany during the 1936 Olympics: Konrad Adenauer—”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “Hitler!” the girl confidently shouts.
“That is correct,” Olmec booms. The Green Monkeys move down to the second step.
“The Green Monkeys are right behind ‘em,” Kirk narrates. “We still need two teams. Next question, please.”

“How many gold medals did Jesse win: four, five, or six?”
The Silver Snakes ring in. “Uh…five?” the boy guesses.
“Incorrect,” Olmec replies.
The Blue Barracudas ring in. “Four?”
“That is correct!” Olmec booms. The Blue Barracudas step to the bottom and applaud excitedly.
“And we’ve got our first team for the Temple Games!” Kirk narrates. “But we still need one more. Who’s it gonna be? Let’s find out…Olmec, continue.”

“What did Hitler do after Jesse won his medals—”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “He…didn’t give ‘em to him.”
“That…is correct,” Olmec replies. The Green Monkeys step to the next-to-last step.
“Now the Green Monkeys are just one step away,” Kirk narrates. “Still plenty of time for the other teams, though. Next question, Olmec.”

“What city hosted the most recent Olympics: Tokyo, Beijing, or—”
The Silver Snakes ring in. “Beijing.”
“That is correct,” Olmec replies. The Silver Snakes join the Green Monkeys on the penultimate step.
“Now the Silver Snakes are only one step away,” Kirk narrates. “There’s still time for the Purple Parrots to catch up, though. Next question, please.”

“What country is Beijing located in: Japan—”
The Green Monkeys ring in. “China!” the girl shouts confidently.
“That is correct!” Olmec exclaims. The Green Monkeys join the Blue Barracudas on the bottom step.

“And we’ve got our two teams!” Kirk exclaims as he runs over and stands beside them. “They’re the Blue Barracudas, and the Green Monkeys! Purple Parrots, Silver Snakes, come on down here, guys. You guys did great, too—you’re not goin’ home empty-handed. We’ve got a great gift for you guys, and here’s what it is.” They receive Land of the Lost on DVD.

“These two teams are gonna be playing for the right to enter Olmec’s Temple, and they’re gonna do it right after this!” Kirk explains.

The camera zooms in on a vine growing on the edge of the Temple, following it up the wall and eventually winding up in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey as the title appears onscreen, and we go to a commercial.

Legends: Rebirth-The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens
« Reply #2 on: October 09, 2009, 07:57:37 PM »
We return from the break to find Kirk standing in front of the Temple with the two remaining teams.

“Welcome back to Legends: Rebirth,” he says. “Now, the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest. But first, let’s get to know our two teams a little better.

“On the Blue Barracudas, we have Victoria; she’s into volleyball and softball, and she wants to be an ER nurse when she gets older, and her partner, Seth, says he likes skateboarding and he also collects vinyl records—let’s hear it for the Blue Barracudas!” The audience claps for the tall blue-eyed girl with long black hair and the equally tall brown-eyed boy with dark brown hair and freckles.

“And over on the Green Monkeys, we have Kirsten; she plays basketball and she also likes to read mysteries, and her partner is Jeff; he likes baseball and he wants to be a lawyer—how ‘bout a hand for the Green Monkeys?” The audience applauds for the green-eyed girl with wavy black hair and the tall, hazel-eyed boy with short black hair.

“All right, guys, are you ready?” Kirk asks.

“Yeah!” the teams reply.

“Okay, go get ready for the Temple Games. Now, in the Temple Games, our teams are competing for…” Kirk retrieves a Pendant of Life from his pouch and holds it up to the camera. “…Pendants of Life. The winning team is gonna need those Pendants to protect them from the dreaded Temple Guards as they make their way through the Temple. There are three Temple Games. Olmec!”

“Yeeeeeeeeeesssss?” Olmec responds as the black lights under him come on.

“Tell us about the first one, please,” Kirk suggests.

Olmec begins to explain the first Temple Game:
“Before racing in the Olympics, Jesse trained for the event by running several miles every day. In this game, you may see what that’s like. When Kirk gives the signal, climb up onto the wheel and begin running to turn it. For each rotation you make, it symbolizes running one mile. The player with the most rotations at the end of thirty seconds…wins.”

“I’m getting exhausted just thinking about it,” says Kirk. “Let’s set the clock for thirty seconds!” The clock appears at the bottom of the screen, ready to go. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

Neither Kirsten nor Victoria is all that fast, but Victoria’s balance is much better than Kirsten’s, who falls off constantly. Victoria hasn’t fallen off at all by the time the game ends.

“Okay, that’s it!” Kirk shouts as he runs back onscreen. “Come on down here, girls, let’s see how you did.” Victoria and Kirsten appear beside Kirk as he glances at the scorecards. “It looks like the Green Monkeys ran six miles, and the Blue Barracudas ran eleven miles—that means the Blue Barracudas get the half Pendant of Life!” The audience applauds for a few seconds. “The Green Monkeys can catch up in the next game, though. It’s worth a half Pendant, too—Olmec, tell us about it…”

Olmec begins:
“By training hard and never giving up, Jesse won four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics. You are about to retrieve Jesse’s medals for him. Before you stands a massive net, with several compartments around the edge. When Kirk gives the signal, launch yourself up to the web, climb up to a compartment, and break it open. If there’s a medal inside, drop down and place it in your bin; otherwise, break open another compartment and try again. The first player to get all four medals or…the player with the most medals at the end of sixty seconds…wins.”

“Thankfully, Jesse didn’t have to get his medals this way,” Kirk explains. “Let’s set the clock for sixty seconds, please!” The clock slams down in the corner, ready to go. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

Jeff and Seth launch themselves up to the giant net with their trampolines and break open the cubbyhole they’re closest to, but neither one houses a medal. Jeff climbs up higher and breaks one open, finding a medal and bringing it back with about 52 seconds left. Seth doesn’t get his first medal until about 45 seconds remain on the clock. Both players find a medal with about 32 seconds remaining, and bring it back at the same time. The very next cubbyhole Seth breaks open houses a medal, and he brings it back with 25 seconds left. Seth can’t find his final medal, but Jeff finds his third, and brings it back just in the nick of time.

“Okay, that’s it!” Kirk shouts as he runs back onscreen. “Come down here—that’s a tough game, I know! Come over here; let’s see how you did here…” Jeff and Seth stand beside Kirk as a spotter brings the two bins over to Kirk so he can count the medals. “It looks like the Green Monkeys got…one, two, three medals, and the Blue Barracudas got…one, two…three medals! It’s a tie! That means both teams get a half Pendant of Life!” Seth and Jeff applaud with the audience. “So now, the Blue Barracudas have a full Pendant, the Green Monkeys just have a half Pendant. But now, we go to the third and final Temple Game. It’s worth a full Pendant of Life. Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #3, please…”

Olmec begins to explain the final Game:
“Even though Jesse won four gold medals, the cruel Adolf Hitler refused to give them to him because he was black. In this game, you will be giving Jesse back his medals. When Kirk gives the signal, load your slingshot and shoot a ball at your partner on the wall, who will then catch the ball and cover up one of the giant gold medal symbols on the wall. Then, climb up to the next medal. The first team to cover up all four gold medal symbols or…the team that’s further along at the end of sixty seconds wins!”

“This is for the Temple,” Kirk explains. “Let’s put sixty seconds on the clock!” The clock appears in the bottom corner, set for sixty seconds. “Ready…aim…FIRE!”

Both teams cover up the first target on their first shot. The Green Monkeys’ aim worsens on the second target; however, the Blue Barracudas cover it up in one try. The Green Monkeys successfully cover the second target a few seconds later, tying it up with about 40 seconds to go. No one scores for a while, but with 22 seconds on the clock, the Blue Barracudas successfully cover their third target. The Green Monkeys cover their third target with five seconds left, and the Blue Barracudas shoot a cannonball in a desperate attempt to get the fourth target. Seth fails to catch the cannonball, though, and time expires immediately afterwards.

“All right, that’s it!” Kirk shouts as he runs back onscreen. “Whoa, don’t hit me with that thing!” he says as one of the Green Monkeys’ cannonballs goes flying past him, missing him by a few inches. “The Green Monkeys covered up three gold medals, but the Blue Barracudas also covered up three medals! That means they both get the full Pendant of Life!” The audience applauds one last time. “So that gives the Blue Barracudas two Pendants, the Green Monkeys have one and a half—the Blue Barracudas are goin’ to the Temple!” Victoria squeals excitedly as she and Seth jump up and down in excitement. The Green Monkeys walk over and congratulate the winning team. “Green Monkeys showin’ great sportsmanship, I like that! They’re not goin’ home empty-handed, though—we’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what that gift is!” They receive Pokémon Ranger for the Nintendo DS Lite.

As the prize disappears off-screen, Kirk is seen standing between both members of the winning team, who are both applauding politely. “Now, we’ll see if this team can make it through the Temple and retrieve the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens, and we’ll see right after this!”

The camera pans in on the Temple and zooms in on the Discarded Sweatband as the title appears onscreen, and we fade to a commercial.

Legends: Rebirth-The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens
« Reply #3 on: October 09, 2009, 08:01:27 PM »
We return from the break to see Kirk standing in front of the Temple with the winning team.

“Welcome back to Legends: Rebirth,” he says. “The Blue Barracudas have proven themselves worthy, and now have earned the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But before they do, Olmec’s gonna give them some information to help them retrieve the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens…”

Olmec begins to explain the layout as the camera gives us a first-person tour of the Temple:
“You could start…by running up the stairs to the Crypt! Grab the book from the skeletons, and pass into the Bottomless Pit! Swing across the gap, and climb into the Lookout Tower. Focus the telescope to read the ancient print on the far wall, and a door may open into the Geographer’s Study. Find the missing pieces of the map and correctly place them, and pass into the Inventor’s Workshop. Turn the wheel to start the machine, and open the door to the SHRIIIIINE of the Silver Monkey! Assemble the statue and you may be headed toward the Room…of the Secret Password. Find the tablet with the correct inscription and shout it out to open the door to the Pharaoh’s Secret Passage. Slide down the tunnel to the Dungeon, where you could smash through the wall into the Dark Forest—but beware of the Temple Guards that may inhabit the trees! Find the key in the tree, and you’ll enter the Chamber…of the Four Elements. Place the elements in the proper order, and you’ll gain entry to the Owl’s Nest! Find the special white owl, and attach it to its proper nest, then…race through the Pit, climb through the Ledges, rrrrrace down the stairs and back through the Temple Gate. The choices are yours and yours alone!” Olmec pauses. “You won 2 Pendants in the Temple Games. Who’s going first?”

“I am,” says Seth.

“Very well, Seth,” Olmec replies. “When Kirk gives the signal, you’ll race through the gate into the Temple and make your way toward the Discarded Sweatband. Hidden inside the Temple are Temple Guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your Pendant for an extra life and go on, but…if you’re caught without a Pendant, you’ll be taken out of the Temple, and it’ll be Victoria’s turn to enter and try her luck. If you can reach the Discarded Sweatband, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish. Return through the Gate with the Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens in three minutes, and you’ll both be handsomely rewarded—and here’s how!”

• Just for making it this far, they’ll get a sports package from Outdoor Products.
• If they can grab the Discarded Sweatband within three minutes, they’ll also receive a Magnavox stereo system.
• And if they can bring the Discarded Sweatband out of the Temple before three minutes expires, they’ll win a trip to Key West.

“All right, let’s see if we can get ‘em through the Temple and on to Key West,” Kirk says. “Both of you, you need your mouthpieces in. Let’s set the clock for three minutes!” The clock appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, ready to go.

“Olmec, lower your gate, if you please.” Olmec moans gutturally as the gate is lowered, and the black lights under him go out.

“Ready, Seth?” Kirk asks. Seth nods.

“On your mark,” Kirk begins, “get set, GO!”

“There he goes, up into the Temple!” Kirk shouts as Seth dashes up the stairs. He soon enters the Crypt, all pulls all three books before opening the door to the Bottomless Pit (2:48). “That opens the door to the Pit!” Kirk narrates. “He’s gotta swing across!” Seth proceeds into the Pit, grabs the rope, and swings across to the other side. He tries the doors to both the Lookout Tower and the Geographer’s Study, the latter which opens (2:39). “That door opens!” narrates Kirk. However, he doesn’t progress through the open door. Instead, Seth drops down to the lower level of the room and tries the actuator for the door to the Owl’s Nest. This door also opens, and he climbs through it (2:30). “He’s trying a different way—into the Owl’s Nest!” narrates Kirk. Seth sets foot in the room, where he is ambushed by the first TEMPLE GUARD (2:24). “Oh, Temple Guard!” Kirk narrates. “But he’s got a Pendant, so he can go on!” Seth hands over his Pendant after hesitating a bit, and the Temple Guard retreats to the back of the room. Seth looks around for a few seconds before he locates the white owl in the front left-hand corner of the room. He grabs it, and takes it to the nests, where he goes in a clockwise pattern, placing the owl on each nest, opening the door to the Chamber of the Four Elements with the third nest (2:10). “That’s the right nest!” Kirk narrates. “Now he’s in the Chamber of the Elements!” Seth proceeds through the open door and heads to the back wall of the room, where the fixed element pattern is set as “fire, water, air, earth”. “He’s gonna have to match up the element tiles on the bottom with the top!” Kirk explains. Seth takes the fire element tile off the stage-left side of the wall and places it in the first spot (1:53). He grabs the water tile from the stage-right side and places it in the second slot (1:47). He grabs the air and earth tiles from the stage-left and stage-right sides, respectively, and places them in their correct slots, opening the door to the Dark Forest (1:38). “That’s it!” Kirk narrates. “Now where’s he heading?” Seth proceeds through the open door into the Dark Forest. He emerges in the room and sticks his hand into the stage-left tree in search of a key, only to be grabbed the arms of the TEMPLE SPIRIT-inhabited tree (1:23).

“Oh, Temple Guard! Go, Victoria!” Kirk narrates. Victoria takes off up the stairs, progressing through the Crypt and the Bottomless Pit. When she reaches the other side of the Bottomless Pit, however, she veers off Seth’s path by venturing into the Geographer’s Study (1:10). “Oh, she’s takin’ a different path,” Kirk narrates. “Into the Geography Room!” Victoria looks around the room for a few seconds before finding India on the floor in the room and correctly placing it soon afterward. She soon finds Australia’s Great Dividing Range and southern Africa on the stage-left wall, and goes back to place those pieces as well. Several seconds go by, but Victoria finally finds and places the last piece—Central America—opening the door to the Lookout Tower, and in the process, revealing the third TEMPLE GUARD hidden behind the door to the ladder (0:39). “Oh, there’s the third Temple Guard!” Kirk narrates. Victoria fumbles with her Pendant for about five seconds before finally handing it over, and progresses up the ladder into the Lookout Tower. She emerges in the room (0:24) and goes to work adjusting the telescope knobs, looking through the telescope at the far wall. After a good while, she finally yells out “I have not yet begun to fight!”, but no doors open (0:07). She yells the phrase again, but again, nothing happens. Victoria pulls herself away from the telescope and begins climbing down the ladder, but time expires before she can reenter the Geographer’s Study.

“Oh, that’s it!” Kirk laments. “She ran out of time! She found a dead-end, and she couldn’t get back on track in time! This was a tough Temple. That’s okay, though, because they still get the sports package for playing anyway, and I know they had a great time—I know I did. We’ve gotta get outta here, though, but we’ll see ya next time. Just remember—it’s not just Legends, it’s Legends: Rebirth! Buh-bye, everybody!”

Kirk and Seth talk as the credits roll, and Victoria eventually appears beside them and joins in the conversation. The camera shows various parts of the set, including a rubber rattlesnake and a close-up view of the Dungeon, the Pharaoh’s Secret Passage, and the Room of the Secret Password. Kirk, Seth and Victoria wave to the crowd as the credits finish rolling and the Stone Stanley logo appears onscreen, and the show fades to black.

Legends: Rebirth-The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens
« Reply #4 on: October 09, 2009, 08:05:39 PM »


The Discarded Sweatband of Jesse Owens
Season 1, Layout 2
Artifact Location
: The Inventor’s Workshop
Team: Blue Barracudas (Victoria Barrett & Seth Sawyer)
Pendants: 2
Result: Ran out of time

Ah, the notorious dead end—many times, it costs a team valuable time, and sometimes, the whole run itself. That’s just what happened here. A rather lengthy dead end cost this moderately quick team a victory.

Seth wasn’t the fastest contestant by any stretch of the word, but he seemed aware of his bearings in the Temple. After finding an open door to the Geographer’s Study, he smartly took the lower path to the Owl’s Nest, apparently aware of the fact that the top path would be a dead end. He completed the remodeled Chamber of the Four Elements fairly quickly, and made good time before being captured by a Temple Spirit in the Dark Forest with 1:23 left.

Poor Victoria. She was fairly quick, but regrettably veered off Seth’s cleared-out path, deceived by the enticingly shorter path hinted at by the open door to the Geographer’s Study. Not only did she meet a Temple Guard, but no doors opened from the Lookout Tower when she read the message through the telescope. By the time she figured out she had been duped, it was too late, as time ran out on her soon afterward.

If Victoria had followed Seth’s path, she probably would’ve reached the Sweatband. But at this team’s mediocre-at-best speed, this probably couldn’t have been a win.

Rating: 4 out of 10

Notes and Trivia: The Chamber of the Four Elements’ objective has been tweaked slightly—instead of blindly placing the four element tiles in random order in hopes that they’ll get the pattern right, the correct pattern has now been placed above the rectangular spot where the tiles go, like in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers. This was probably done when the producers saw how much trouble the room had been causing some contestants.

After Olmec tells the legend, as the camera is zooming in on the Discarded Sweatband hidden in the Inventor’s Workshop, you can clearly see the Battered Helmet of Henry the Second in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey—a sure sign these two episodes were filmed on the same day.

That was pretty insane, TAW. Pretty insane. :lol:

Excellent work indeed. It seems like (apart from maybe "The Treasure Map of Jean Laffite") the producers never gave contestants that many choices - I kinda like that in this episode. Is it intentional that there seems to be a stronger bond between Kirk and Olmec than ever before?
