  • S01E01 Right To Stay

    • October 5, 2002

    "Endurance" begins as 20 kids arrive on an island in the Pacific Ocean on an 82-foot ship. As the ship approaches the beach, the contestants are introduced and the game begins!

    • October 12, 2002

    The remaining 14 contestants are formed into seven teams of two, following a tense mission to determine the picking order.

  • S01E03 Tilt

    • October 19, 2002

    This episode opens with the kids playing on the beach, looking like they are having fun and are carefree. However, based on the kids' confessionals, that is not the case. Max, of the grey team, tells the cameras that things on the island somtimes get pretty slow. His partner, Jenna, says that she is noticing a lot of ""playful flirting"" between some of the other competitors. According to the kids, Chelsea has a thing for Max, and there is definitely something going on between Sabrina and Aaron. The kids have been teamed up with their partners for a few days now, and Jonna says that everyone is happy with their partner. However, Lana, from the green team, says that although her partner, Trevor, is strong, she isn't sure they'll make a great team. Trevor watches his competitors and makes many observations. It is obvious that Sabrina, from the yellow team, and Ashley, from the red team, are friends. At the same time, some people think that the grey team, as well as the yellow and red tea

  • S01E04 Knotted Up

    • October 24, 2002

    As the episode opens, Sabrina, of the yellow team, explains that everyone is nervous about the upcoming temple mission. Chelsea, of the orange team, tells the cameras that her team is a target to be sent up to the Temple of Fate, but she isn't worried because she believes they'll do really well in the Temple Mission. Max, of the grey team, has a similar confidence and says that he isn't a target to be sent to the Temple anyway. Later, the teams meet J.D. Roth on the beach, where they get their first look at that day's challenge. The challenge, called ""knotted up"" will force teammates to work together as they are connected by the waist with a giant rope that has a large knot in the center. The first team to untangle the knot in their rope wins the mission. The teamates get into position, and as J.D. signals the beginning of the challenge, all teams rush toward the knot in their rope. The Red team (Christian and Ashley) and the Blue team (Jonna and Aaron) take an early lead, and are n

    • November 16, 2002

    The morning after the Grey team's departure, J.D. met the kids near their huts,and gave Jonna Max's hat that he left behind. Along with the hat, Max left a note for Jonna. The note read: ""Give this to the next team you want to betray"". Aaron and Jonna of the Blue team are both shocked and confused by the letter, because, as Aaron says to the cameras, he thought Max understood why his team was sent to the temple. Jonna tells the cameras that she didn't agree to sending the Grey team to temple, and usually speaks up when she doesn't agree with something. Lana, of the Green team, tells the cameras that when her team returned from the Temple, Jonna pretended she was happy for them, but Lana claims it was only an act. Lana promises that if the Green team wins the Endurance mission, the Blue team will recieve the Samadhi. Later that afternoon, the teams arrive at the beach, where J.D. awaits for them. He explains to the teams that this weeks challenge is called ""Plat the Flag"" and is mo

  • S01E06 Squeeze Play

    • November 23, 2002

    From Discovery Kids.com With just six teams remaining on the island, and the Purple team not allowed to participate because they received the Samadhi, the five eligible teams competed in their second Temple Mission: Squeeze Play. This mission was a mental challenge based on the questionnaire the contestants took at the rock the day before. The kids were asked the same questions as before, but this time they had to answer based on what they thought the majority of the group said. Ashley answered four questions correct in a row on the way to the Red team's first victory. Now the hard part — picking two teams to send up to the Temple of Fate. At the Temple Selection the Red team announced that they were sending the Purple and Orange teams. This decision devastated Chelsea and Layla because they were best friends on the island and didn't want to be split up. They promptly spent the rest of the day together enjoying each other's company and making the most of their time. Both of their teams

  • S01E09 Eruption

    • December 14, 2002

    from Discoverykids.com The five remaining teams made the trek over to the Temple Mission to compete for the right to stay on the island for at least two more days. The winning team will also have to make the tough decision on which two teams to send to the Temple of Fate. The game, called ""Eruption"", was based on volcanoes. Pressure builds and builds under the earth's surface until it finally explodes, causing an eruption. This game was the ultimate test of strength and endurance as each team held on to a rope attached to a spring-loaded net containing water balloons that represented a volcano. The team who held on the longest would win ... sound simple? Not so fast. As the teams held on to their own rope, the entire structure holding the nets rose higher and higher off the ground making it nearly impossible to hold on. Since the Orange team had received the Samadhi, their rope was one foot shorter than everyone else's, making it that much harder for them to hold on. After an intense a

    • January 4, 2003

    From Discovery Kids.com With the Orange team's departure leaving the Green team to fend for itself against the powerful Blue-Red-Yellow alliance, the final four teams competed in another Endurance Mission. As the girls walked up to the Endurance Mission, ""House of Cards"", they were shocked to find their partners buried in the sand up to their necks with their heads hidden beneath buckets. Modeled after the impressive construction of the Great Wall of China and intended to honor the many thousands of brave men and women who constructed it, the girls had to build a tower on their partner's head using blocks and pudding. The first one to pile all the blocks on their partner's head and maintain balance would win both the Pyramid Piece left by the Orange team and the right to dole out the Samadhi. In a huge shift of power, the Green team won their first mission and with the reward of the Samadhi and the Pyramid Piece, moved into third place with two pieces. Since the Blue team had sent G

  • S01E11 Dial In

    • January 11, 2003

    From Discovery Kids.com The final four teams competed in a very important Temple Mission to ensure that they did not have to make the journey to the Temple of Fate. The mission, called ""Dial In,"" was patterned after the science of cracking codes. Each team had to decode a message from a giant wheel with letters and numbers that, when lined up correctly, would reveal a question that the teams needed to answer. Since the Blue team had received the Samadhi from the Green team, they had to start the game a staggering 15 seconds after everyone else. As soon as they got to their board they began cracking the code, and to everyone's shock, they finished first. Never before had a team that received the Samadhi won, and it sent a clear message to all the teams that Blue was the strongest team on the beach. When it came time for Blue to decide who to send to Temple, they seesawed back and forth for hours. Of course an obvious choice was the Green team who, despite making it this far, was still

  • S01E14 Don't Drop the Ball

    • February 22, 2003

    From Discoverykids.com In the final Endurance Mission, ""Don't Drop the Ball,"" the Blue and Yellow teams competed for the final Pyramid Piece, which the Red Team left behind when they were eliminated from the island. In this game, each team was perched atop their own platform above the ocean. The object was for each team to hold a giant ball over their head for as long as they could. The first team to drop their ball into the ocean would lose. Jon and Sabrina of the Yellow team were steady the entire game, while Aaron and Jonna of the Blue team switched off to allow resting. This proved costly when, during one of their switchovers, they lost control of the ball and dropped it into the ocean, dashing their hopes of yet another victory. With the win, the Yellow team evened things up at five Pyramid Pieces for each team. At the Final Temple, the Yellow team was shocked to discover the final Temple Mission was different from the ""Fire, Wood, and Water"" game the teams had become accustomed

J.D. meets the teens on the beach, to get a feeling of who wants to be who's partner. When asked who he wants to partner up with, Shep says he wants to partner with either Jacquelynn or Christa. Jaquelynn feels that could be a good partnership. J.D. leaves the teens until later that day, and advises them to begin thinking about what partner AND team color they want. Later, the teens begin to discuss who they want to be partnered up with. In interviews, many of the girls seem to want either Shep, Phil or Tyler as their partner. At the same time, there is some animosity over the fact that many of the boys want to be partnered with Jacquelynn. While Wayne complains that HE should get Jacquelynn as his partner, Annie tells Calley and Michelle that Jacquelynn only wants to be partnered with Shep because she finds him attractive. Later, the teens meet on the

    Only a few days into the game, the strategizing and whispering has already begun. According to Maryelle, the teams are split down the middle; The yellow, green and brown teams against the grey, purple, orange, and red teams. Meanwhile, the blue team has split too. While Scooter wants to align with the purple and red teams, Christa is going back and forth on her decision. When the teams meet on the beach to compete in their first competition, they learn the challenge is a Temple Mission, and one team will be leaving the game that evening. In the mission, ""Tower of Power"", teams race across the water and beach, collecting large blocks as they go. The first team to cross the finish line with all their blocks stacked in a tower will win the first Temple mission. When the mission begins, the yellow and brown teams take an early lead, while the orange team is still struggling to stay afloat in the water.

    The next afternoon, J.D. meets the remaining teens near their huts, and gives the green team a note left by Wayne and Maryelle. The note tells the purple team to send Tyler home and to stay true to the alliance. It also reveals that the grey team wishes to give the purple team their pyramid piece. When J.D asks the teams if anyone had an alliance with the grey team, Annie reveals her team, purple, DID indeed have an ""agreement"" to work together. Now, with the grey team's pyramid piece, Annie and Jeff have taken the lead in the game. When the teams return to the huts, Annie tells Michelle the only reason she was sent to temple was because many people want to see Tyler go. In the other hut, Tyler complains to Phil and Scooter about how annoying he finds Michelle. As the purple team walks to the pyramid piece poles, away from the other kids, Annie tells Jeff she was closest to Maryelle and wishes orange went, while Jeff admits he is worried that other people will see their team as a threa

    • October 25, 2003

    With the second Temple mission looming, tensions are high on the beach. Michelle, of the Orange team, is determined to win the challenge, in hopes of gaining more respect, and Jenna explains that the brown team's strategy is to win. As the teams meet on the beach, they learn about the temple mission, entitled ""Rollerball"". In the challenge, each teammate takes one side of a board with small walls scattered across the board. The object is to move two balls from one side of the board to the other, maneuvering around the walls and falling into a pocket on the other side of the board. The first team to drop both balls into the pocket wins the temple mission, and will get the privilege of sending two teams to Temple. Shortly after the challenge begins, both the brown teams and the green teams get one ball into the pocket. While the other teams continue to have trouble keeping their first ball on the board, the green and brown team appear to be neck and neck. However, the green team is abl

Within the note, Jacquelynn and Phil write that they can't wait to see the Green team go home next, and that they are leaving their Discipline pyramid piece with the Blue team, Christa and Scooter. That gives the Blue team two pyramid pieces, while the Purple team holds the lead with three. Although Mike and Keetin seem to laugh off the note in front of everyone, they reveal their true thoughts to the camera. Mike worries that other teams may begin to dislike them because the Red team accused them of being backstabbers.

Later that day, the teams meet J.D. on the beach, to learn they will be playing an a mission called ""On the Ropes"". In the mission, one member from each team takes the end of their rope and strings it through a series of hoops.

Also, the Blue team writes that they leave their two pyramid pieces to the Annie and Jeff, of the Purple team. While Annie and Jeff are excited to hear they have received two more pyramid pieces, the other contestants question why the Purple team received the pieces. Calley, of the Yellow team, tells the cameras that she believes Scooter left the pieces to the Purple team just to irritate the remaining contestants.

    From Discoverykids.com: While the 14 official Endurance: Hawaii contestants wax nostalgic about their six fallen comrades, JD is concocting the biggest twist of the game thus far: he's in the process of informing the six kids who lost the Right to Stay game that they are going back to the jungle. Brandon, Marshall, Tom, Eleanor, Vanetta and Taylor will compete against each other in a final, winner-takes-all contest. The winner not only gets the right to stay on Endurance: Hawaii, but also gets to choose his or her partner from the remaining five contestants. These two ""second-chance"" kids will be the Endurance: Hawaii Brown team. With his plan in full swing, JD heads into the jungle to meet with — and surprise — the unknowing Endurance players at the huts. Before revealing anything, JD reminds the contestants that later in the day they'll all participate in their first Endurance mission and someone will end up with the Samadhi that will handicap them for the following day's Temple miss

    In this episode of Endurance, the teams compete in their first Endurance mission for the pyramid piece and the power of the samadhi. All eight teams must stand at the end of a ring, holding up a pole in the center of the ring. If the pole hits the ring, it will ignite, creating a ring of fire and that team is out. Brown is first out, followed quickly by yellow. Eventually, gray, red, and orange are eliminated leaving Blue, Green, and Purple standing. The three remaining teams can only hold up the pole with only one arm and they can't switch arms, making it harder to keep the pole up. Blue was arguing in the middle of the mission and are the next team eliminated, leaving Green and Purple left to battle it out. Alex's hand slips of the handle of the pole and the green team is now out. Purple won the mission and receives a second pyramid piece, putting them in the lead with two pieces. They also decide who gets the samadhi. After the mission, the teams think who may get the samadhi, and s

    From Discoverykids.com The day that everyone has been dreading has arrived. The Endurance: Hawaii contestants will finally compete in their first Temple Mission, and by the end of the evening one team will be going home! But it's Bryanah and Monroe (YELLOW TEAM) who are the most stressed out because they're handicapped by a five-foot piece of rope since the PURPLE TEAM gave them the Samadhi. Sarah (PUPLE TEAM) reveals the reason they gave the Samadhi to Yellow: she doesn't like Bryanah, and she's not alone. Apparently Lindi, Rachel and Nicole don't like her either. Even Monroe is wishing he were paired with someone else since his partner seems to attract so much drama! It seems the only one in Bryanah's corner is Alex (GREEN TEAM), but even she concedes it's unlikely Yellow will be able to pull off a win with the Samadhi hampering them.

    From Discoverykids.com: The fallout of Monroe and Bryanah's (Yellow) decision to choose the Gray (Chris and Lindi) and Purple (Reece and Sarah) teams to join their ""superteam"" in the Temple Mission is still reverberating the following morning in the jungle. Although some of the players who were not chosen by Yellow, such as Kareem from the Red team, admit that Yellow made a wise decision, Tom and Vanetta (Brown) are disappointed that Yellow chose strategy over friendship. Now, Brown feels like they're in a do-or-die situation — if they lose the day's mission, there's a good chance they'll be heading to Temple that evening. Later on, the contestants meet with JD to find out about the day's Temple mission. But first, JD reiterates that the three teams comprising the winning superteam will be immune from being sent to Temple that evening. The game that will decide which superteam is safe is called Bamboo Jungle. Essentially, it's an obstacle course that will force the contestants to jump

JD meets with the survivors to read Red's departing letter and, more importantly, to find out which team Red has left their pyramid piece to. In the letter, the Red team reveals that they found Reece and Sara (Purple team) most trustworthy, so they have decided to bestow their Trust piece upon them. This revelation miffs Tom (Brown team), who expected his good friend Kareem to leave the piece to him. The addition of Red's piece gives Purple the lead in the game, with three pyramid pieces total, followed closely by Yellow (Bryanah and Monroe) and Orange (Nicole and Bryanah), who are tied for second place with two pieces each. JD quickly segues into the day's Endurance mission, which is on everyone's mind. But in typical JD fashion, he slyly throws in a twist: he info

JD encourages Yellow to hang in there and continue to play hard, because there are many twists and turns yet to unfold on Endurance: Hawaii. Fate and good fortune could be just around the corner. Speaking of twists, JD goes on to announce that there will be no Temple mission today and no team will be eliminated that evening! Instead, the teams will compete in another Endurance mission, for the Courage pyramid piece and the power to choose which team will be handicapped by the Samadhi. It all seems like good news until JD throws out one last bit of information about this mission's Samadhi — the team that receives it will have absolutely no chance of winning the next day's Temple mission! Back at the huts the teams begin to make plans about

  • S03E15 Balance Ball

    • January 8, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com: The day on Endurance: Hawaii begins with a tragic and unfortunate event: Vanetta (Brown team) injured her knee in a freak accident in the early morning. She was immediately evacuated out of the jungle to the nearest hospital, and as a result, she's been forced out of the game! As all of the contestants gather with JD to play the day's Temple mission, JD gives Tom, Vanetta's partner, his options: he can either take himself — and thus, the Brown team — out of the competition, or he can continue to compete as a one-man team. Tom gallantly chooses to stay in honor of his fallen teammate, and decides that the Brown team will continue on in Endurance: Hawaii, albeit at a great disadvantage. JD shares his admiration for Tom's decision to persevere in the game, and then tells everyone about the day's Temple mission, Balance Ball. In this game, each of the team members will be required to hold one end of a platform on which they will balance a ball. The team will have to

  • S03E16 The Halfway Mark

    • January 15, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com: On this unusually sunny morning in the jungle, JD meets with the final four teams of Endurance: Hawaii to read the recently departed Brown team's farewell letter, and more importantly, to find out which team Brown has left their Perseverance pyramid piece to. In a jovial letter, in which he congratulates all of the remaining contestants, Tom reveals that Brown has chosen to leave its pyramid piece to the Yellow team (Bryanah and Monroe), because they have demonstrated so much perseverance throughout the game. The acquisition of Brown's piece, a small but much-needed recovery, puts Yellow back on the board, after Gray (Lindi and Chris) had taken all of their pieces by way of the Samadhi on a previous day. Currently, the Gray team is in the lead with four pieces; Purple (Sarah and Reece) has three pieces; Orange (Nicole and Demian) has two pieces; and Yellow now has one pyramid piece. Before they convene, JD lets everyone know that a pyramid piece and the powerful

    • January 22, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com It's down to the final four teams on Endurance: Hawaii, and with a Temple mission to be played in the afternoon, everyone is reassessing their loyalties and alliances. In particular, Nicole (Orange team) seems ready to abandon her team's alliance with the Gray (Lindi and Chris) and Purple (Sarah and Reece) teams, out of fear that one of those teams will send Orange to Temple with the perennially picked-on Yellow team (Bryanah and Monroe), should they win the day's mission. No one is more surprised by the newfound friendship between the Orange and Yellow teams than Bryanah, but she realizes that Nicole's offer of a truce isn't one of goodwill, but rather a strategic maneuver to stay in the game. Later, the teams meet up with JD to play the day's Temple mission, You're Fired. Based equally on physicality and luck, the game requires the contestants to shuttle water from the nearby pond into a series of tubs located across a stretch of land using only small pouches.

    • January 29, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com And then there were three - only the Yellow (Bryanah and Monroe), Gray (Lindi and Chris) and Orange (Nicole and Demian) teams remain on Endurance: Hawaii! JD meets with the remaining contestants at the huts first thing in the morning to read the Purple team's farewell letter, and to find out which team Purple has left their pyramid pieces to. Although Sara and Reece seemed to have left the island on good terms with everyone, they specifically cite the Gray team as their greatest friends, and make good on a promise to leave their 3 pieces to them. With the addition of Purple's pieces, the Gray team now has an astounding 7 pieces total; both the Yellow and Orange teams have only two apiece! Despite the daunting lead Gray holds, there are more challenges ahead and anyone could come out on top. JD goes on to explain the day's Endurance mission, CREATE YOUR OWN GAME. The name pretty much says it all; for the first time in Endurance history, the contestants must cooper

  • S03E19 Final Elimination

    • February 5, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com: After enjoying a sunny morning of swimming in Kauai, the contestants meet with JD at the huts to hear about the afternoon's Temple mission — the last one of Endurance: Hawaii. With only three teams left in the game, the winner of the mission is a lock to play for the championship, while the other two teams will have to test their luck at Temple later that night. No one needs reminding that the Yellow team (Bryanah and Monroe) was given the Samadhi by the Gray team (Lindi and Chris) the previous day, but JD brings up an interesting fact: no team in Endurance history has ever been to Temple three times and played for the championship. If the Samadhi handicaps Yellow and forces them to Temple, and should good fortune be on their side and they make it back to the jungle anyway, they could makegame history! Later, the contestants rendezvous with JD to play the final Temple mission, Color Coded. In this memory game, the players on each team must correctly choose one o

  • S03E20 Battle for the Pieces

    • February 12, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com At last, the final day of Endurance: Hawaii has arrived! And when the Orange (Nicole and Demian) and Gray (Lindi and Chris) teams meet with JD at the huts on this sunny morning in the jungles of Kauai, he takes a moment to congratulate them on making it to the championship round. But they soon get down to business, reading the now-departed Yellow team's farewell letter. In the letter, Bryanah and Monroe express their sympathies to Demian for having to deal with Nicole as a partner, but they postscript the comment by telling him it was his own fault for choosing her in the first place! They then go on to express their admiration for Lindi and Chris, and wish them the best of luck at winning the championship. The good news for Orange is that the Yellow team couldn't leave their pieces to Gray, which would've given them an even more overwhelming lead. Instead, their two pieces will be up for grabs in the day's mission, Battle for the Pieces! In this mission, the two

    • February 19, 2005

    From Discoverykids.com ""And then there were two!"" proclaims JD as the Orange (Nicole and Demian) and Gray (Lindi and Chris) teams approach the island for the last gathering of Endurance: Hawaii. Earlier in the day, the Gray team obliterated Orange in the Battle for the Pieces mission. By doing so, they collected two additional pyramid pieces, giving them a 10-piece-to-2-piece lead! JD asks the contestants to take a moment to reflect on their Endurance experience in Hawaii, and how amazing it was to compete in a setting that is actually an island, within an island, within another island! He also asks the remaining two teams to think about one interesting fact: The two contestants able to determine their teammates after the Choose Your Partner mission at the beginning of the game, Lindi and Demian, made it to the final round, although they got here in drastically different ways. The Orange partnership has been a struggle from the beginning, but it was their friendships (and alliances) th
