Trivia

Each contestant was allowed to keep the same team T-shirt that he or she wore during the course of the program. However, contestants on the Silver Snakes team were given facsimiles afterwards since the T-shirts they wore during taping were specially designed to show up better on film. See more »

Goofs

In his Temple Run commentary, it's clear Kirk Fogg often forgot about the diagonal passage connecting the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and the lower left-hand room. See more »

Quotes

Olmec: Let's get crackin'!

Crazy Credits

Most temple runs ran the full 3 minutes, and thus the closing credits scrolled by very quickly. However, if a temple run was cut short either by a player retrieving the artifact or the team getting caught by 3 temple guards, the credits would scroll by much slower to make up for "lost time."

Best Show Ever Made
1 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some things never lose their appeal. Scared, prize hungry 12 year olds, a giant talking Mayan statue, some goofy guy swinging from a rope, that silver monkey that nobody seemed to be able to put together, and some freaky temple guards all came together to make the perfect action game show on Nickelodeon. "Legends of the Hidden Temple" is an excellent game show that was featured on Nickelodeon from 1993 to 1995. Although hosted by Kirk Fogg, Legends is most famous for a much different host: a talking stone head by the name of Olmec. This television show will always be remembered for its creativity and its suspenseful action.

No matter what team won, you could have always done better then them.

oh and by the way there is a site selling the team shirts which is amazing.
