Six teams compete through a series of physical and mental challenges as it narrows down to only one team given the privilege to enter a mysterious temple in order to retrieve an artifact ... See full summary »
The set of the show changed slightly from season to season. In the first season, the helmets were yellow, the moat was pretty much a pool of water, the teams then for the temple games would wear shorts, and they would run the temple with yellow sweat pants on. In the second season, the moat got fog over it, along with other small touch ups, the teams wore jeans for the temple games and temple run, the temple had a gate, and the helmets were a gold-like color. In the third and final season, the gongs had a deeper sound, the steps of knowledge had a small buzzer in the step for easier buzzing. The temple itself had many updates over time, as did Kirk Fogg's entrance.
Are you ready, Olmec?
Olmec: Let's rock.
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.
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.
