Title: Adult Contestants Legends of The Hidden Temple Revival on The CW
Post by: jude_este on May 11, 2021, 01:27:06 PM
The CW has picked up a revival of the Nickelodeon game show Legends of the Hidden Temple featuring adults as contestants. And though there is no announced premiere date or who will host the show. The elements and the team names from the original series will remain unchanged - the show promises tough challenges and bigger prizes than the original version in each episode.

I was fully expecting this to be on Paramount+ after seeing the link to the contestant application on Buzzerblog and that it was not for the Quibi version, seeing it'll be on network TV is a nice surprise. Now to see if Kirk Fogg will return as host and Dee Bradley Baker returning as Olmec.

The Quibi version IS this version for the record in looking, it got moved from there to the CW. https://decider.com/2021/05/11/legends-of-the-hidden-temple-reboot-cw/

This is awesome news!!  I remember watching Legends all the time when I was a kid.  Let's hope that they stick to the true format of the show.  It seems like reboots do better when the format is relatively the same as before.

I wonder if they will let some of the kids that were on there back in the 90s be able to come back this time.  That is if they are in great shape and meet the requirements

I don't know if I can trust a source that can't spell "development."

Apologies for the month-long bump, but The CW has confirmation of the premiere date for Sunday, October 10 at 8 pm eastern. Still no word on who will be the host of the series.

Iíll gladly be watching Celebrity Wheel of Fortune instead. Nothing wrong with rehiring Kirk.

Nickelodeon got it right when they brought back Marc Summers to announce the Double Dare revival. No excuse for The CW to not bring back Kirk.

What if he comes back in the announcer role too? It's possible.

And if Kirk Fogg is just tired of being the host of one show for the rest of his career?

Have we ever considered that? He may not want to be typecasted any further.

Kirk told TMZ back in May that he was in talks to host the revival and he said he will be involved in some way. https://www.tmz.com/2021/05/13/kirk-fogg-legends-of-the-hidden-temple-reboot-adults/ (https://www.tmz.com/2021/05/13/kirk-fogg-legends-of-the-hidden-temple-reboot-adults/)

Maybe they'll get Dee Bradley Baker to voice Olmec again?

Maybe Kirk will be a Temple Guard. One thing I find cheesy about the original Nick version is that the TG sound effect always included a drum sound, but none of the TGs have them on their costumes.

With regards to an adult version, I'd expect more of a Wipeout (ABC)-style moat, somewhat more challenging Steps Of Knowledge, and a larger Temple with all-new obstacles and challenges. I'm definitely going to give it a try.

In theory, Legends of the Hidden Temple is just a themed-Fun House/College Mad House. So they can continue to build toward the concept a bit more with adult contestants.

Considering what  the homepage of his official website (http://www.kirkfogg.com/kf/index.html) looks like...

...I doubt that's the reason.

while Kirk ended up being passed for the host/guide spot, https://www.instagram.com/p/CRjn3OynB-d/ i have a feeling they at least got Dee to reprise his role as Olmec

update to my last post, with a tweet from the new host  https://twitter.com/cristela9/status/1417704578238205955 that confirms my previous statement (as to Dee)

So Dee is definitely back as Olmec, that's great news. Now to see what exactly Kirk's role is, if he indeed has one as he indicated to TMZ in May.
