"OLMEC: Legends... of the Hidden Temple! With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!

Rest of SpielEdit

KIRK: Thank you, thank you very much, nice to see you, and thank/great/good to see you, Olmec. Welcome to (Legends of) the Hidden Temple. (Actually, it's Olmec's Temple. [mainly used in Season 1]) The Rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by Mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. (Only) Olmec knows the Legend behind each of the treasures in his Temple. Which one are we going to hear (about) today? 

OLMEC: The Legend of (insert legend artifact).

KIRK: ([Okay/Alright,] The legend of (insert legend artifact)!) (The Legend is set, and) One of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the (insert legend artifact) (and help us return it to it's rightful owner [mainly used in early Season 1 episodes]), will it be the Red Jaguars, The Blue Barracudas, The Green Monkeys, The Orange Iguanas, The Purple Parrots, or the Silver Snakes? They're gonna have to pass some (pretty) tough physical and mental tests. And in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec's Temple. But first, they must cross the moat, and here's/Olmec will tell us how they have to do it today."

CatchphrasesEdit

The MoatEdit

"Before you (insert moat objects); when I say "GO", the first player from each team will work across the moat, once you're there, it's the second player's turn the same way as you did. If you fall off the moat, you have to go back and try again. As soon as the second player is safely on the deck, is his/her job to run over there and hit the gong. (Kirk demonstrates the Red Jaguars gong) The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the Steps of Knowledge." - Kirk Fogg (on the rules and preparation of the moat from Season 1)

"Before you (insert objects); when Kirk gives the signal, (insert explanation of the moat rules). As soon as the second player crosses the Moat, run over and hit the gong. (Kirk demonstrates the Silver Snakes gong) (In early episodes, the camera shows the demonstration close-up of the Blue Barracudas gong)" - Olmec (explaining the moat objectives from Season 2)
