Colonel, trust me.

Which one was the one you were into? I always wanted to be on Guts so I could play basketball with bungee cords and climb the Crag. Legends of the Hidden Temple you like, just got assaulted by Olmec or something.

Also when I was in the Air Force I knew a dude who had been on Guts and actually had a piece of the Crag. I guess the runners up got a piece that was smaller than the chunk the winner got.

Rumor has it the producers got the kids so hopped up on sugar at the start of the show that any one that made it to the end just crashed hard.

I read somewhere they tapped all the segments in a way that they would shoot a bunch of stage ones, then a bunch of stage twos, and so on, so at the end of the day you'd been there for like 10 hrs. Sounds exhausting.

The only thing I remember kids failing at harder than that was the 'put blinking lights on the right state on a giant map of america' challenge at the end of Where in the world is carmen sandiego

I don't think anyone ever won the prize on that one

legends of the hidden temple was nuts and had buttans you could press and poo poo. aggro-crag was the only interesting part of guts

I would have rather been on nick arcade tho that poo poo was video games

apparently the monkey was deceptively huge for a kid and heavy as poo poo
there was an article about it a while back, iirc one of the reasons no one ever seemed to win on hidden temple was those kids were mentally exhausted as a result of how the show was produced

Guts, easily.
Legends of the hidden temple featured like 10 teams each episode, and you had to beat like 3 challenges just to make it to the temple run. imagine losing in the first challenge because your teammate loving sucks.

Plus I read that Temple had not enough prizes for the # of episodes they were making so they gave you a busted monkey that wasn't going to ever work. At this point between that and the sugar story who knows , plainly no one thinks kids are really that stupid and someone was messing with them.

GUTS was more fun and was like a proto Ninja Warrior.

Legends had a much lower success rate, so it was funnier to watch kids fail (though less funny that some of them got PTSD and they apparently kept going for 12-18 hours all day per episode).

But Legends always had some boring trivia portion at the start called the Steps of Knowledge which killed the fun.

GUTS was probably more entertaining because it was non-stop physical challenges.

We have a goonette named Mudcrab Merchant who was a contestant on both Legends of the Hidden Temple and G.U.T.S. as a kid. She made it to the Temple, came within literal seconds of winning the grand prize on both shows, and made an Ask/Tell thread several years back about her experiences.

IIRC, from what she said the Silver Monkey really wasnít that hard to put together; she didnít get to that room during her Temple run but she got to try it after the show finished taping and she said itís literally as easy as youíd think it is from watching the show at home. The hard part, according to her, is that during the Temple run thereís a bunch of producers shouting confusing poo poo at the kids trying to gently caress them up mentally the entire time, so that even simple tasks like assembling the monkey statue become difficult. This is also why when you watch the show you see kids in the Temple stopping to look out at the stage or toward the camera so much.

Mudcrab Merchant also said that Moira Quirk is super tiny and sweet in real life.

(Fun Fact: Moira Quirk does cartoon voice acting work from time to time.)

What's bullshit is if you were on ADD medication you pretty much had the advantage. Energy the first game, and paying attention the second game. This ensured the nerds sucked during the physical portion of the temple. I always felt they should have done the questions first, and the physical part second so we would have some actual exciting runs.

I dunno, I bet any prop from that set is worth more now than any prize they could have offered. I'd have taken it.
