Endurance was a teen reality competition that lasted six seasons - from 2002 to 2007. Sixteen to twenty teenagers aged 12 to 15 would be placed in a remote location and compete in various missions as mixed gender teams of two for a grand prize trip.
This show provides examples of the following:
- Color-Coded Armies: The teams when they are created - they wear predominantly team-colored clothing.
- Diabolus Ex Machina: In a couple seasons, a team that came in last in the Endurance Mission would automatically be send to Temple unless they won the Temple Mission. Neither team overcame this obstacle.
- My Greatest Second Chance: Max & Jenna (season 1's gray team) were voted by their castmates to be put into season 2 because of their misinformation about what The Temple of Fate was.
- Rock-Paper-Scissors: The Temple of Fate is this essentially - fire burns wood, wood floats on water, water puts out fire.
