Did You Know?
To control the motion of Olmec's mouth, 'Dee Baker' (Olmec's voice) pulled a wire that activated its movement. Olmec's eyes, on the other hand, were voice activated and grew brighter with volume. See more
As listed in trivia, temple runs were often filmed without an audience. In episodes where there was no audience when a temple run when is filmed, it is clearly, if a viewer was to look carefully, shown the seats are empty by the temple gate, usually in the second and third seasons. See more
Are you ready, Olmec?
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."

The versions of the episodes that aired originally on Nickelodeon (from 1993-1995, the show's original run) had Dee Baker (just as himself, not in character as Olmec) doing the prize announcements. The repeats that aired years later (including those on Nick GaS) have some of these segments redone with "later released" prizes, and feature the voice of another announcer (probably Doc Holliday, the Double Dare announcer.) However the Temple Prize segments still have Dee Baker's voice. See more
