Episode 60: The Ruby Pendant of Princess Caraboo

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  The head’s eyes light up, and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!”  The words appear on the screen, along with a picture of a Pendant of Life.  “With your guide, Kirk Fogg!  And here he is now!”

As the Pendant of Life shatters, the camera cuts to a middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans riding in on an ATV.  He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you!  Thank you very much!  Nice to see everyone!  Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his Temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Ruby Pendant of Princess Caraboo,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Ruby Pendant of Princess Caraboo,” Kirk repeats.  “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Ruby Pendant—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, they have to cross that Moat, and Olmec will tell them how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you are three rods which stretch the entire length of the Moat.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will jump into the water and wade out to the first rod.  Then, lean backwards and walk forward until you pass under the rod.  Once you’ve passed under the first rod, wade out to the second one and do the same.  Both players must cross in this way; but if you touch the rod with any part of your body, you must go back and start all over again.  Once both players reach the other side, 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,” suggests Kirk.  “Teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“And Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“You know it,” Olmec replies.
“On your mark,” Kirk begins, “get set, GO!”

On “go”, the six teams’ first members step into the Moat and begin wading out to the first rod.  Everyone bends over backward in an attempt to pass underneath the first pole, limbo-style, and they all make it.  “They’re all doin’ great so far, but they’ve got two more to go if they wanna make it,” Kirk narrates.  “And those are even further down than that first one!”  All six players make it to the second rod and bend over to pass under it, but the Red Jaguars’ boy falls in the process and has to go back.  “Red Jaguars have to go back—everyone else is looking okay!” Kirk observes.  The third and final rod comes up, and everyone except the Silver Snakes’ girl passes under it.  As the Silver Snakes’ girl is sent back and the Red Jaguars’ boy passes under the first rod on second attempt at crossing, the other teams’ first members make it across, and their partners then begin crossing as well.  They all come to the first rod and successfully pass under it as the Silver Snakes’ girl slips and falls trying to make it under the first rod on her second try.  The Red Jaguars’ boy makes it past the third rod with a little difficulty as the Silver Snakes’ girl goes back to start again.  Meanwhile, the other teams’ second members have all made it under the second rod.  “Oh, it’s neck-and-neck—I think I know who our four teams will be!” Kirk narrates.  As the Red Jaguars’ girl and the Silver Snakes’ girl bend over to pass under the first rod for the first and third time, respectively, the other team members start to cross under the third and final rod, with the Purple Parrots’ girl and the Green Monkeys’ boy making it first.  These two teams scramble out to hit their gongs as the Blue Barracudas’ boy and the Orange Iguanas’ girl slowly pass under the rod.  The Red Jaguars’ girl makes it under her second rod in the meantime, but by then, she’s too late—the Orange Iguanas and Blue Barracudas hit their gongs to end the Moat Crossing.

“That’s it—we have our four teams!” says Kirk as he rushes over and stands beside the Purple Parrots.  “Purple Parrots were over in a flash, didn’t see many problems out of them at all, and going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots…and the Orange Iguanas…”  Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause.  “…and the Green Monkeys…and the Blue Barracudas!  The Red Jaguars and the Silver…Snakes were great, too—they aren’t goin’ home empty-handed.  We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from GameStop.

Episode 59: The Mysterious Material of the Roswell Object

“The legend of the Mysterious Material of the Roswell Object,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Mysterious Material of the Roswell Object,” Kirk repeats.  “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Mysterious Material—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’re gonna have to pass some pretty tough tests, but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, we’ve got to get across the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how it has to be done today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat crossing:
“Before you are three rods which stretch the entire length of the Moat.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will jump into the water and wade out to the first rod.  Then, lean backwards and walk forward until you pass under the rod.  Once you’ve passed under the first rod, wade out to the second one and do the same.  Both players must cross in this way; but if you touch the rod with any part of your body, you must go back and start all over again.  Once both players reach the other side, 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?”
All six teams shout and cheer as a response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“Take me to your leader, Kirk-ling,” Olmec replies in a nasally, alien-like voice.
“Take you…” Kirk spits out before laughing heavily out loud.  “Okay…teams, get set, GO!”

“There they go, toward the first pole!” says Kirk as the first members of each team (the girls for the Red Jaguars and Purple Parrots; the boys for all other teams) step into the Moat and wade out to the first pole.  Once there, they all bend over backwards, limbo-style, and attempt to make it under the pole.  Since the first pole is about two feet higher than the Moat’s water level, they all pass under it with little trouble, and proceed toward the next pole.  “They made it under the first one, but they’ve got two more to go!” says Kirk.  All the teams proceed to the second pole, which is about six inches lower than the first one.  Everyone bends back and successfully passes underneath the pole except the Blue Barracudas’ boy, who falls backwards into the water.  “Oh, Blue Barracudas have to go back—everyone else looking good, though!” narrates Kirk as the five teams come to the last pole, which is only a foot above the water.  All the contestants now struggle to make it under the pole, and two of the players either touch it or lose their balance.  The Red Jaguars, Silver Snakes and Orange Iguanas make it, though, and their partners now begin to cross.  Meanwhile, the Blue Barracudas’ boy is to the second pole again, and he makes it this time.  The Red Jaguars’ girl and Silver Snakes’ and Orange Iguanas’ boys make it under the first pole and head to the second one as the Blue Barracudas’ boy barely squeezes himself under the last pole to make it across, signaling for his partner to cross now.  The Green Monkeys’ boy also makes it under the last pole on his second try, and his partner also steps into the Moat to begin crossing.  “We’ve got some tough teams today, but we can only take four to the Steps of Knowledge,” says Kirk as the Purple Parrots’ girl finally makes it across on her second try.  The Silver Snakes and Red Jaguars’ second players have each made it across now, and they scramble out of the Moat to hit their gongs.  “Oh, we’ve got two teams now—we might have three very soon!” Kirk narrates as the Orange Iguanas’ boy climbs out of the Moat, rushes over and hits his team’s gong.  “There’s three; now we need one more!” says Kirk.  The Blue Barracudas’ girl touches the third pole on her way across the Moat, and the Purple Parrots’ boy falls while trying to make it under the same pole; however, the Silver Snakes’ girl just barely squeezes under the pole and reaches the other side.  She climbs out of the Moat, and she and her partner hit their gong to end the Moat crossing.

“That’s it—we’ve got our four teams,” says Kirk as he runs over and stands next to the Silver Snakes.  “Silver Snakes did it—going on to the Steps of Knowledge will be the mighty Silver Snakes…and the tenacious Orange Iguanas…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause.  “…and the Green Monkeys…and the Red Jaguars!  The Blue Barracudas and the, uh…Purple Parrots were great, too; they’re not going home empty-handed.  We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift card from FYE.

The Dark Forest / Tornado Aftermath
« on: April 28, 2011, 10:11:40 PM »
As some of you might know, I live in Tennessee, and as some of you may also have heard, a string of tornadoes hit the southeast United States last night.  What I don't think you may realize is the severity of the storms--some people say it was the worst tornadic activity ever seen by the south in God knows how long. Over 100 people dead; thousands more without homes or power; millions of dollars in damage done.  It's bad, folks...we only got power and internet service back a few hours ago on campus, even though Memphis wasn't directly hit by the storms. My mom and dad are thankfully alright, and our house is still standing, even though they have NO ELECTRICITY still, and numerous people in our community are also without power--or worse.  Read about some of the damage here:

Episode 58: The Eagle Feather Headdress of the Zulu Chieftain

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  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 rides in on an ATV.  He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you!  Thank you very much!  Nice to see everyone!  Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Eagle Feather Headdress of the Zulu Chieftain,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Eagle Feather Headdress of the Zulu Chieftain,” Kirk repeats.  “Well, the legend is set, and one of these teams will have a chance to retrieve the Headdress—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, several rock formations stick out from the Moat.  Closer to you float the remains of an ancient raft.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will jump into the water and balance the raft, and the other player will step onto the raft itself.  Then, kick your way across the Moat, avoiding the rocks along the way.  If you hit a rock formation, or the second player falls or touches their partner, you must both go back and begin again.  Once you reach the other side, step off the raft, help your partner out of the water, 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, it’s time to get started,” says Kirk.  “Hey teams, are you ready?”
The teams shout and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“Let’s rock the house,” replies Olmec.
“Ha ha…all right,” says Kirk.  “On your mark, get set, GO!”

The boys of each team step into the water and hold onto the rafts as the girls step onto them; they then start kicking across the Moat.  “There they go, and they’re fast approaching that first rock!” says Kirk as all six teams manage to make it up to the boulder.  The Blue Barracudas and Red Jaguars shakily manage to squeeze around the boulder, but the other four teams’ girls aren’t so lucky and topple into the water.  “Oh, we’ve got a four-team pile-up!” says Kirk as the four teams start to make their way back.  “Red Jaguars and Blue Barracudas looking good, though!”  The four other teams restart their crossing as the Red Jaguars and Blue Barracudas pull further out in front.  The Green Monkeys hit the boulder with their raft when they approach it, but the other teams manage to slowly make it around the boulder as the Red Jaguars and Blue Barracudas begin to pass through the rock arch.  “I think I know who our first two teams will be,” remarks Kirk as the Orange Iguanas, Silver Snakes and Purple Parrots slowly make it around the boulder.  The Red Jaguars and Blue Barracudas have now made it across, and both teams’ girls step off the raft.  The Green Monkeys finally manage to make it around the boulder as the Red Jaguars’ and Blue Barracudas’ boys are helped out of the Moat by their female partners and both teams hit their gongs.  “Two teams—we need two more!” says Kirk as the Silver Snakes fall off while trying to make it under the rock arch.  The Orange Iguanas and Purple Parrots make it through their rock arches, however, as the Green Monkeys approach their rock arch.  The Orange Iguanas’ and Purple Parrots’ girls step off their rafts, and then help their male teammates out of the water.  As the Green Monkeys’ boy desperately tries to make it through the rock arch in time, the Orange Iguanas and Purple Parrots hit their gongs, ending the Moat Crossing.

“All right, they did it!” says Kirk as he rushes over and stands beside the Purple Parrots.  “Fourth team, right here—Purple Parrots made it over, slowly but surely, and it paid off for ‘em, because they’re going on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Orange Iguanas…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow applause.  “…and the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars!  The Green Monkeys and the Silver Snakes didn’t quite make it, but that’s okay.  We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift card from Old Navy.

Episode 57: The Rose-Adorned Hairpin of Laura Bullion

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  The head’s eyes light up, and it begins to speak:

“The legend of the Rose-Adorned Hairpin of Laura Bullion,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Rose-Adorned Hairpin of Laura Bullion,” Kirk repeats.  “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Rose-Adorned Hairpin—will it be:

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

The boys from each team slide into the water and hold on to the foam rafts as the girls step onto them and hold on tight as the boys start kicking across.  The Blue Barracudas and Red Jaguars take a slight lead in the first few seconds, and no one falls off until they reach the first boulder-shaped obstacle, when the Green Monkeys’ girl topples off her raft and into the Moat.  “Whoa, she falls hard!” says Kirk as the other five teams begin to make their way around the boulder.  “Everyone else looks to be in good shape, though!”  The teams all make it around the boulder, with the Blue Barracudas, Red Jaguars and Orange Iguanas about half-foot in front of the other two teams that are still kicking away.  The Green Monkeys have made it to the boulder again, but the boy hits the boulder with his raft, so the team is sent back.  The other five teams are now trying to pass through the rock arch, and after a suspenseful moment where the Blue Barracudas’ girl almost falls off, they all make it.  The Red Jaguars reach the other side first, and the girl steps off the raft and helps her partner out of the water before they hit their gong.  “Oh, it’s gonna be close for these last three spots!” says Kirk as the others all reach the bank at about the same time.  They all scramble out, and the Blue Barracudas, Silver Snakes and Orange Iguanas all hit their gongs, with the Purple Parrots missing out by only about a second.

“That’s it—we’ve got four teams, right there!” says Kirk as he runs over to stand beside the Silver Snakes.  “Silver Snakes got over here no problem, and goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Orange Iguanas…”  Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow applause.  “…and the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars!  The Green Monkeys and the Purple Parrots gave it a good try, and they’re not going home empty-handed.  We’ve got a great gift for them, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from Pacsun.

Episode 56: The Wooden Figurehead of the Viking Ship

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  The head’s eyes light up, and it begins to speak:

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans rides in on an ATV.  He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you!  Thank you very much!  Nice to see everyone!  Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Wooden Figurehead of the Viking Ship,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Wooden Figurehead of the Viking Ship,” Kirk repeats.  “Well, one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Figurehead—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?”  The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.

All the teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“You better believe it,” Olmec replies.
“Okay,” Kirk says.  “On your mark, get set, GO!”

The boys jump into the water to grab their foam rafts as their female partners step onto the backs of the rafts.  The boys then start kicking across the Moat, but almost immediately the Purple Parrots’ girl and Blue Barracudas’ girl fall in the water.  “Whoa, they’re down,” remarks Kirk.  “It’s tough to keep your balance with all that kicking!”  The other four teams each make it to the boulder and the boys all start maneuvering their way around it as the girls struggle to stay balanced on the rafts.  Meanwhile, the Blue Barracudas and Purple Parrots have restarted, and they appear to be making good progress until the Blue Barracudas’ girl can’t keep her balance while her partner swerves around the boulder, and she hits the drink for a second time.  The Purple Parrots make it around the boulder as the other four teams near the rock arch.  The girls all duck down to avoid hitting the arch, but the Orange Iguanas’ girl loses her balance upon doing so and falls, hitting the arch in the process.  “Whoa, nasty landing there!” says Kirk.  “I think she’s alright, though!”  As the Orange Iguanas trudge back to begin again, the Blue Barracudas finally make it around their boulder, but by this time, the other four teams are nearing the other side, and they hit their gongs in the order of Silver Snakes, Green Monkeys, Red Jaguars, and Purple Parrots within about a seven-second time span.

“Whoa, that’s it!” says Kirk as he runs over to stand beside the Silver Snakes.  “They got—we’ve got four teams!  Silver Snakes didn’t have any problems at all; first ones across, and goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…along with the Purple Parrots…” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause.  “…and the Green Monkeys…and the Red Jaguars!  The Blue Barracudas and the Green…uh, Orange Iguanas gave it a great effort, and they’re not going home empty-handed.  We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from GameStop.

Episode 55: The Stolen Tarnkappe of Siegfried

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  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 rides in on an ATV.  He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you!  Thank you very much!  Nice to see everyone!  Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Stolen Tarnkappe of Siegfried,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Stolen Torn Cape of Siegfried,” Kirk says, slightly mispronouncing the artifact’s name.  “So, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Cape—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, several rock formations stick out from the Moat.  Closer to you float the remains of an ancient raft.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will jump into the water and balance the raft, and the other player will step onto the raft itself.  Then, kick your way across the Moat, avoiding the rocks along the way.  If you hit a rock formation, or if the second player falls or touches their partner, you must both go back and begin again.  Once you reach the other side, step off the raft, help your partner out of the water, 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, then let’s get started,” says Kirk.  “Teams, are you ready?”
The teams shout and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“It’s showtime,” replies Olmec.
“Yes, it is,” says Kirk.  “On your mark, get set, GO!”

The six teams’ male members step into the water to hold the foam rafts, and the girls all step onto them.  The boys then start kicking, but the Blue Barracudas’ girl falls off almost immediately.  “Oh, they just hit the water,” says Kirk.  “You need to find some way to keep balanced, and that isn’t easy!”  As the Blue Barracudas start over, the other five teams come to the boulder obstacle and begin to swerve around it.  The Red Jaguars’ and Orange Iguanas’ girls fall in the Moat while veering around it, but the other three teams make it by the boulder with no visible problem.  “It’s neck-and-neck between those three teams,” remarks Kirk as they head toward the rock arch.  The Blue Barracudas and Orange Iguanas successfully make it around the boulder on their second try at crossing, but the Red Jaguars’ girl falls off again a few seconds later as her team tries to do so.  Meanwhile, the other three teams successfully pass through their stone arches and head for the opposite side.  Everyone rushes to make it out of the water, and the Silver Snakes, Green Monkeys and Purple Parrots hit their gongs in that order.  “Three teams—I think we might have our fourth one pretty soon!” Kirk narrates as the Blue Barracudas and Orange Iguanas each pass through their arches at about the same time.  Both teams make it to the other side at nearly the same time, and both scramble to make it out of the water.  The Orange Iguanas’ boy can’t climb out quickly enough, though, allowing the Blue Barracudas to become the fourth team to hit their gong and end the Moat Crossing.

“That’s it—we’ve got our four teams!” Kirk says as he runs over and stands beside the Silver Snakes.  “Silver Snakes were over no problem—they’re tired and wet, but they’re going on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Purple Parrots…” Kirk 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 gave it a valiant effort, too, and they’re not goin’ home empty-handed.  We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from Claire’s.

Episode 54: The Discarded Dentures of John Greenwood

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  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 rides in on an ATV.  He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you!  Thank you very much!  Nice to see everyone!  Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Discarded Dentures of John Greenwood,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Discarded Dentures of John Greenwood,” Kirk repeats, a slightly disgusted look on his face.  “Well, the legend is set, and one of these teams will have a chance to retrieve the Dentures—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 tough tests, both physical and mental, but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec’s gonna tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, several rock formations stick out from the Moat.  Closer to you float the remains of an ancient raft.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will jump into the water and balance the raft, and the other player will step onto the raft itself.  Then, kick your way across the Moat, avoiding the rocks along the way.  If you hit a rock formation, or if the second player falls or touches their partner, you must both go back and begin again.  Once you reach the other side, step off the raft, help your partner out of the water, 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.  “Hey teams, are you ready?”
The teams all shout and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“Ready to rock,” replies Olmec.
“All right,” says Kirk.  “On your mark, get set, GO!”

The male players of each team either wade or drop into the water and grab the foam “raft” while their female partners climb onto them.  “This is tough, because you don’t have anything to hold on to,” Kirk narrates as the boys start to kick their way across.  The Blue Barracudas’ girl falls off her raft almost immediately, and the Green Monkeys’ girl soon follows.  The Red Jaguars pull out in front until they reach the first rock formation—a boulder protruding from the water, which they have to go around—causing the girl to lose her balance and fall.  “Whoa, we’ve got teams fallin’ off left and right—oh, Silver Snakes just fell off!” Kirk narrates as the Silver Snakes’ girl hits the water.  The Purple Parrots and Orange Iguanas successfully make it around the boulder as the Red Jaguars fail to make it past theirs again, falling into the water a second time.  The Green Monkeys’ girl falls off her raft again trying to get around the boulder, as does the Blue Barracudas’ girl.  The Silver Snakes make it around the boulder without the girl falling on their second try, and the Blue Barracudas do as well; however, the girl falls off as they begin to make their way to the second rock formation.  The Orange Iguanas and Purple Parrots successfully make it through the second rock formation—a large rock arch that the standing player must duck under to pass through—and pull well out in front.  “I think I know who our first two teams are gonna be,” Kirk narrates.  Sure enough, the Orange Iguanas and Purple Parrots both make it to the other side at about the same time, and they both hit the gong within milliseconds of each other.  “Two teams—oh, maybe three teams now!” Kirk narrates as the Silver Snakes successfully make it through the rock arch and reach the other side.  The girl almost falls off, but thankfully regains her balance and pulls her partner out of the water.  They hit the gong about a second later.  “Three teams—we only need one more!” Kirk narrates.  As the Green Monkeys’ girl falls for what must be the fourth time now, the Blue Barracudas have made it past the boulder and are trying to make it past the rock arch.  The Red Jaguars catch up to the Barracudas, however, and make it through more quickly.  In a close race, the Red Jaguars barely beat out the Blue Barracudas to become the fourth and final team to hit their gong.

“That’s it,” remarks Kirk as he rushes over to stand beside the Silver Snakes.  “Four teams, right there!  Silver Snakes had a little problem staying on the raft there at the start, but they made it, and going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Purple Parrots…”  Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause.  “…and the Orange Iguanas…and the Red Jaguars!  The Blue Barracudas and the Green Monkeys came up just a little short, but they’re not going away empty-handed.  No, we’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here it is!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from GameStop.

Episode 12: The Orbit Maps of Johannes Kepler

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 Orbit Maps of Johannes Kepler,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Orbit Maps of Johannes Kepler,” Kirk responds.  “Well, one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Orbit Maps—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one of these teams will have the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, they’ve gotta cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they’ve got to do it today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a long rope hangs into the Moat.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will swim out to the rope, grab it, swim back with it, and swing across.  Once you’re safely across, throw the rope to your partner, who will then swing across in the same way.  If your feet touch the water while you’re swinging, you must go back and start again.  Once both players reach the other side, 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 goin’,” Kirk says.  “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Mr. Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“Can you smell what this rock is cooking?” Olmec replies.
“I think I can,” Kirk laughs.  “On your mark, get set, GO!!”

The six team members jump into the Moat and grab the rope.  The Blue Barracudas’ boy is first back, followed closely by the Purple Parrots’ boy.  The Green Monkeys’ boy is back next, followed by the Orange Iguanas’ girl, the Silver Snakes’ girl, and finally, the Red Jaguars’ boy.  All the teams successfully swing across except the Red Jaguars’ boy and the Green Monkeys’ boy, who touch the water.  “They touched the water, so they’ll have to start again,” Kirk narrates.  The other four teams successfully throw the ropes to their partners, and aside from the Purple Parrots’ girl, whose feet touch the water, all successfully swing across and race to hit their respective gong.  The Green Monkeys’ boy and Red Jaguars’ boy successfully swing to the other side and throw the rope to their partners.  “This is really close—who’s it gonna be?” Kirk narrates.  All three remaining team members successfully swing across, and the Green Monkeys beat out the Purple Parrots and Red Jaguars by just a few inches.

“That’s it!  We’ve got our four teams!” Kirk shouts as he runs over to stand beside the Silver Snakes.  “It was fast and furious, but the Silver Snakes had no problems—at least none that I saw—and goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…along with the Orange Iguanas,” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause.  “And the Green Monkeys, and the Blue Barracudas!  The Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots almost made it, but they’re not goin’ home empty-handed.  We have a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from Pacsun.

Episode 53: The Unused Chains of Red Legs Greaves

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning.  The head’s eyes light up, and it begins to speak:

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans rides in on an ATV.  He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you!  Thank you very much!  Nice to see everyone!  Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Unused Chains of Red Legs Greaves,” Olmec replies.

“Ooh, the Unused Chains of Red Legs Greaves,” Kirk repeats.  “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Unused Chains—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?”  The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?

“The Purple Parrots?

“They’ll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s Temple.  But first, they’ll have to cross that Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you hangs a row of ancient suspended rings.  When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will reach up and grab the first ring, then swing out to the next one and grab onto it with their other hand, on their way across.  Once you reach the other side, it’s your partner’s turn to cross in the same way.  If you fall, you must go back and start again.  Once both players are safely across, 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!”

“Okay, let’s get started,” Kirk says.  “Is everybody ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“And Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“Let’s rock and roll,” Olmec replies.
“Sounds good to me,” says Kirk.  “On your mark, get set…GO!”

All six teams’ first members reach up and grab their first ring.  Everybody slowly makes their way to the second ring, but the Purple Parrots’ boy slips and falls in the water.  “There’s really no way to rush this game…you just have to take it nice and slow,” Kirk narrates as the teams continue to cross.  The Green Monkeys’ boy takes a slight lead as he makes it to his fourth ring as the other teams reach their third.  The Orange Iguanas’ boy almost slips off his fourth ring when he reaches it, but he holds on for dear life and that doesn’t happen.  The Green Monkeys’ boy makes it across a good ten seconds before any other teams do, but they close in quickly—except for the Blue Barracudas’ girl, who falls as she’s reaching for her sixth and final ring.  “Oh, she has to go back,” Kirk laments.  “And after all that work to get over!”  The Orange Iguanas’ boy, Red Jaguars’ boy and Silver Snakes’ girl make it across within seconds of one another, and their partners now start to cross.  The Purple Parrots’ boy makes it across on his second try, and the Green Monkeys’ girl is having a little trouble reaching her fourth ring while crossing.  The Blue Barracudas’ girl falls for a second time trying to reach her third ring, and so does the Purple Parrots’ girl.  The other teams’ second members slowly continue crossing, and at 1:03, the Red Jaguars’ girl slams down on her team’s gong, with the Silver Snakes’ boy following suit about three seconds later.  “Two teams, we need two more—no, three teams!” Kirk narrates as the Orange Iguanas’ girl slams down on her gong.  The Green Monkeys’ girl is on the verge of slipping, but she recovers and hits her team’s gong to end the Moat Crossing at 1:39.

“That’s it—four teams, right there!” says Kirk as he heads over to stand beside the Silver Snakes.  “Silver Snakes just took it slow and steady, one ring at a time; and that paid off, ‘cause they’re goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Orange Iguanas…”  Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause.  “…and the Green Monkeys…and the Red Jaguars!  The Blue Barracudas and the Purple Parrots didn’t quite make it, but that’s all right—here’s what we’ve got for them!”  They receive a $50 gift certificate from Old Navy.

Episode 52: The Marble Shard of the Mausoleum

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning. The head’s eyes light up, and it begins to speak:

The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Marble Shard of the Mausoleum,” Olmec replies.

“Aha, the Marble Shard of the Mausoleum,” Kirk replies. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these teams will have a chance to retrieve the Marble Shard—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell them how they’ll have to do that today…”

“Okay, then let’s get started,” Kirk says. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“OOOOOHHH yeah,” Olmec replies.
“Ha, ha—all right,” laughs Kirk. “On your mark, get set…GO!”

All six teams’ first members reach up and grab their first ring. The Blue Barracudas’ boy takes an early lead, with the Green Monkeys’ boy close behind him. The Purple Parrots’ girl falls into the Moat, but everyone else hangs on for dear life as they swing from ring to ring. The Blue Barracudas’ boy makes it to the fourth ring first, and the Green Monkeys’ boy is right behind him. The Orange Iguanas’ boy slips off the fourth ring the second he touches it, but the rest of the teams appear to be doing just fine. The Purple Parrots’ girl swings out to her second ring as the Blue Barracudas’ boy steps onto the deck, followed by the Green Monkeys’ boy about five seconds later. The Red Jaguars’ girl is next across, about ten seconds later, right before the Orange Iguanas’ boy falls into the Moat on his second try at crossing. The Silver Snakes’ boy has made it across now as the Purple Parrots’ girl falls in for a second time. The Green Monkeys’ girl is blazing across, having already made it to her fourth ring, and the Red Jaguars’ boy is only about a ring’s worth of crossing behind her. The Blue Barracudas’ girl is now halfway across as the Orange Iguanas’ boy holds on, determined to hang on for dear life. The Silver Snakes’ girl is only to her second ring, but appears to be hanging on just fine. About ten seconds later, the Green Monkeys’ girl makes it across, and she hits her team’s gong. “Green Monkeys are across—oh, Blue Barracudas across, too!” Kirk narrates as the Blue Barracudas hit their gong soon after the Green Monkeys. The Orange Iguanas’ boy has made it to his fifth ring as the Red Jaguars’ boy steps onto the deck, clocking in as the third team. “Red Jaguars are over—we need one more team!” Kirk comments. The Purple Parrots’ girl seems to be stuck on the fourth ring as the Orange Iguanas’ boy finally makes it across. About five seconds later, though, the Silver Snakes’ girl staggers onto the deck, almost hitting her gong with her chin. She hits the gong (not with her chin, thankfully) to end the Moat Crossing.

“Whoa, that’s it!” says Kirk as he runs over to stand beside the Silver Snakes. “Four teams, right here—Silver Snakes just took it slow and easy, and that paid off, ‘cause they’re goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Green Monkeys…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “…and the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars! The Orange Iguanas and Purple Parrots did great, but didn’t quite make it. That’s okay—we’ve got a great gift for ‘em for trying, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Old Navy.

Episode 51: The Misfired Rocket of Wan Hu

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning. The head’s eyes light up, and it begins to speak:

Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of the Misfired Rocket of Wan Hu,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Misfired Rocket of Wan Hu,” Kirk replies. “Well, one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Misfired Rocket—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?

“Of course, they’ll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you hangs a row of ancient suspended rings. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will reach up and grab the first ring, then swing out to the next one and grab onto it with their other hand, on their way across. Once you reach the other side, it’s your partner’s turn to cross in the same way. If you fall, you must go back and start again. Once both players are safely across, 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,” Kirk says. “Teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“Ready, willing and able,” Olmec replies.
“Okay, great,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set…GO!”

The first members of each team reach up and grab their first ring. The Blue Barracudas’ boy slips off and falls almost immediately, and the Red Jaguars’ girl soon follows. “It’s tough; you have to hang on to each and every ring—oh, Silver Snakes just went in!” Kirk narrates as the Silver Snakes’ girl hits the water. The Purple Parrots’ girl is struggling to reach her third ring as the Green Monkeys’ boy pulls way out in front of the other teams, having made it to his fourth ring already. The Red Jaguars’ girl falls in again on her second attempt, but the Blue Barracudas’ boy manages to hang on as he struggles to reach his third ring. The Orange Iguanas’ boy makes it to his third ring before falling in, and the Purple Parrots’ girl also falls in trying to reach her fourth ring. The Green Monkeys’ boy makes it across without falling in (the only frontrunner to do so) and his partner now starts to cross as well. The Silver Snakes’ girl is now halfway across the Moat as she reaches out for her fourth ring. The Blue Barracudas’ boy reaches for his fourth ring, but he lets go of the third one prematurely and falls face-first into the Moat. The Green Monkeys’ girl is now almost across, and the Orange Iguanas’ boy almost falls in while trying to reach his third ring. The Purple Parrots’ girl is now about halfway across on her second try, and the Silver Snakes’ girl manages to make it across as the Red Jaguars’ girl falls into the Moat for a third time just as she’s reaching for her fifth ring. A gong sound is heard, and we see the Green Monkeys standing beside their lit gong, having been the only team to cross without falling in (1:40). “Oh, Green Monkeys are across—three more teams left to determine!” Kirk narrates as the Blue Barracudas’ boy falls in the Moat for a third time. The Silver Snakes’ boy falls in the Moat about halfway across, but the Purple Parrots’ girl successfully crosses soon afterward, as does the Orange Iguanas’ boy. “They’ve got themselves across…now they just need their partners across!” Kirk narrates. The Red Jaguars’ girl is now about halfway across as the Silver Snakes’ boy falls in even before he can reach for his second ring. The Orange Iguanas’ girl is reaching for her fourth ring as the Blue Barracudas’ boy hits the water for a fourth time. The Purple Parrots’ boy reaches for his fourth ring, and the Silver Snakes’ boy hits the Moat for a third time. All the fog is gone from the Moat, and we can see the Red Jaguars’ girl finally make it across as her partner starts to reach for a ring. The Orange Iguanas’ girl and the Purple Parrots’ boy make it across successfully, and they both hit their team’s gong (3:25). “Three teams—now we only need one more!” Kirk observes as the Blue Barracudas’ boy falls for the fifth time. The Red Jaguars’ boy has now made it to the second ring as the Silver Snakes’ boy is now about halfway across. The Blue Barracudas’ boy just can’t seem to get across as the Red Jaguars and Silver Snakes have a drawn-out race to the end, but eventually the Silver Snakes’ boy makes it across, and at 4:48, hits his gong to end the incredibly long Moat Crossing.

“That’s it!” Kirk shouts as he runs over and stands beside the Silver Snakes, whose male member is panting heavily. “That’s it—four teams, right there! Silver Snakes are tired, they’re wet, but they stuck it out and made it over, and goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Purple Parrots…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “…and the Orange Iguanas…and the Green Monkeys! The Red Jaguars and the Blue Barracudas hung on as long as they could, but they came up just a little bit short. We’ve got a great gift for them, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from GameStop.

“Ooh, the Oil-Soaked Rags of the Japanese Ninja,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Oil-Soaked Rags—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross that Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you hangs a row of ancient suspended rings. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will reach up and grab the first ring, then swing out to the next one and grab onto it with their other hand, on their way across. Once you reach the other side, it’s your partner’s turn to cross in the same way. If you fall, you must go back and start again. Once both players are safely across, 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,” Kirk says. “Teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“You know it,” Olmec replies.
“All right,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set…GO!”

All six teams’ first members swing out to the first ring and grab onto it. The Blue Barracudas’ boy has trouble reaching out to the second ring right off the bat, but most of the other players reach it with no problems. “They can’t rush in this one—they’ve gotta take it one at a time, and not get too carried away,” Kirk narrates. The Blue Barracudas’ boy falls into the Moat and has to be sent back, but the other five teams appear to be making some progress, with the Green Monkeys’ girl and the Red Jaguars’ boy slightly out in front. The Orange Iguanas’ girl is having a bit of trouble reaching the fourth ring, and the Purple Parrots’ boy appears to be getting tired as he reaches for his fourth ring. The Green Monkeys’ girl is almost across as the Red Jaguars’ boy slightly pulls ahead of her to grab his sixth and final ring. The Blue Barracudas’ boy has made it to his second ring, but most of the other teams’ first members have now made it across, with the Red Jaguars’ boy and Green Monkeys’ girl setting foot on the dock first. “Looks like everybody’s doing good so far—Blue Barracudas have a little catching up to do, though!” Kirk narrates. The Purple Parrots’ girl slips off the first ring trying to grab the second one, and is promptly sent back. The Blue Barracudas’ boy makes it across after about twenty seconds, and his partner now begins to cross as most of the second team members are at least halfway across. The Green Monkeys’ boy swings onto the dock first, and he becomes the first person to hit his team’s gong; the Red Jaguars’ girl soon follows. “Two teams—we need two more!” Kirk narrates. About eight seconds later, the Silver Snakes’ boy steps onto the dock and hits his team’s gong to make it three. The Purple Parrots’ girl is now about a third of the way across, but the Orange Iguanas’ boy steps onto the dock and hits his team’s gong to end the Moat Crossing, all before the mist even disappears from the Moat.

“There we go—there’s our four teams!” Kirk says as he rushes over and stands beside the Silver Snakes. “Silver Snakes took it one step…one ring at a time, and it pays off—they’re goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Orange Iguanas…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “…and the Green Monkeys…and the Red Jaguars! The Blue Barracudas and the Purple Parrots gave a great effort, but we’ve got a great gift for ‘em anyway. Here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Old Navy.

Episode 49: Democritus' Half-Eaten Gyro

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, a torch on either side of the head begins burning. 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 rides in on an ATV. He dismounts the vehicle and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you very much! Nice to see everyone! Nice to see you, 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 all-new treasures in his temple…which one are we gonna hear about today?”

“The legend of Democritus’ Half-Eaten Gyro,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, Democritus’ Half-Eaten Gyro,” Kirk repeats. “Well, one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Half-Eaten Gyro—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 tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one of these teams will get the right to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will explain to us how they’ll have to do it today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you hangs a row of ancient suspended rings. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will reach up and grab the first ring, then swing out to the next one and grab onto it with their other hand, on their way across. Once you reach the other side, it’s your partner’s turn to cross in the same way. If you fall, you must go back and start again. Once both players are safely across, 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!”

“Okay, let’s get started,” Kirk says. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” asks Kirk.
“Let’s rock,” Olmec replies.
“All right,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

On Kirk’s word, the teams’ male members (except for the Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes, who send the girls across first) grab onto the first ring. The Red Jaguars’ boy takes an early lead, with the Blue Barracudas and the Purple Parrots making slow progress along the rings as well. The Silver Snakes’ girl falls into the water just trying to reach the second ring, as does the Green Monkeys’ boy. “Whoa, two teams down—this is gonna be a tough one, I have a feeling!” Kirk observes. The Red Jaguars’ boy is almost across, and the Blue Barracudas and Purple Parrots are also holding on for dear life as they slowly cross. The Orange Iguanas’ boy is tries and fails to reach the fourth ring, as his arms give out and he falls into the water. Unsurprisingly, the Red Jaguars’ boy becomes the first player to cross—everyone else is mostly dangling in the middle of the Moat. The Blue Barracudas’ boy shows determination and swings to the fifth ring, but the Silver Snakes’ girl is still struggling to muster enough strength to reach the third ring. As the Red Jaguars’ girl slowly swings to the second ring, the Purple Parrots’ boy musters enough strength to make it across, and his partner reaches up to grab the first ring. The Green Monkeys’ boy swings out to the third ring, but gives out and falls into the water a second time. “No one’s across yet—we still need four teams!” Kirk narrates. These words become obsolete about ten seconds later, though, when the Red Jaguars’ girl makes it across and gongs in (1:37). “Red Jaguars are across, but it looks like everyone else is having a little trouble!” Kirk accurately states, and indeed, most players seem to be tired hanging onto the rings. All the mist is now gone from the Moat as the Blue Barracudas’, Purple Parrots’, and Orange Iguanas’ girls are hanging in there while crossing. The Silver Snakes’ girl is about halfway across, but determinedly continues to hang on as she attempts to garner enough strength to reach the third ring on what must be her third attempt at crossing. The Blue Barracudas’ girl hits the gong to finish crossing (2:20), and the Purple Parrots also clock in (2:26). “Oh, three teams—and I think I know who the last one’s gonna be!” Kirk says. Indeed, the Orange Iguanas’ girl makes it across a few seconds later, and at 2:39, they become the fourth and final team to hit their gong.

“And that’s it!” Kirk says as he runs over and stands beside the soaking Purple Parrots. “Purple Parrots are soaked to the core, but they toughed it out—they’re goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Orange Iguanas…” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “…and the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars! The Green Monkeys and the Silver Snakes didn’t make it all the way, 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 Pacsun.
