Legends of the Hidden Temple, which aired on Nickelodeon from 1993 to 1995, took contestants on a thrilling journey through a massive, Aztec-themed set. Teams of two competed in various physical and mental challenges, culminating in the climactic Temple Run. The Temple Run was a true test of speed, agility, and teamwork. Contestants had just three minutes to navigate the treacherous temple, filled with locked doors, hidden passages, and spooky "Temple Guards" who could capture them at any moment. It was notoriously difficult to complete. In fact, over the course of the show's 120 episodes, only 32 teams managed to retrieve the artifact and escape the temple in time, earning the coveted grand prize.

We all know the beautiful Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune, the show that catapulted her into TV icon status. No one can turn letters like Vanna! But just a couple years before Wheel of Fortune, Vanna was just one of the many contestants hoping to "come on down!" on The Price Is Right. And how did she do? Well, let's just say she didn't quite hit the jackpot. Despite her best efforts, Vanna didn't make it past Contestant's Row. But don't feel too bad for her. This was just a stepping stone in her journey. Just two years later, she would land the co-hosting gig on Wheel of Fortune, a role that she has held with grace and charm since 1982. But her appearance on The Price Is Right serves as a fun reminder that we all have to start somewhere.
