'90s kids unite: Someone once barfed on 'Legends of the Hidden Temple'
Legends of the Hidden Temple was a fascinating and archaeologically dubious Nickelodeon game show from the 1990s. Host Kirk Fogg led teams of contestants in a series of games that culminated with a puzzle hunt through a gigantic "temple," which was ostensibly an obstacle course with rooms themed like ancient palace ruins. The host just revealed something in a new interview: The pressure once scared a contestant into vomiting on camera.
Ugh. Imagine vomiting in the Pit of Despair, that pool of foam blocks. I can't think of a more hopeless feeling.
I'd forgotten how rare it was that contestants won the show. Only eight allowed victories a season? Fogg, you traitor!
