In 1993, Legends of the Hidden Temple hit Nickelodeon airwaves and has since been widely considered to be one of their best game shows. The show aired it's final episode on September 1, 1995 and was reran on Nickelodeon until August 23, 1999 and continued to be reran on Nick Gas (Nickelodeon Games And Sports For Kids) from the channel's launch in 1999 until it shut down on December 31, 2007 (April 23, 2009 for Dish providers) and again on TeenNick's late night programming block "The 90's Are All That" until the block was renamed "The Splat" in October 2015.[1] A revival of the show is currently in production at The CW and is set to air in 2021.[2] While no aired episodes are missing, there was a Temple Run (or possibly an entire episode) that never aired at all.

According to host Kirk Fogg on the web series The Garage Show with Jeff Sutphen;

"There was a female contestant in the temple; the episode, season and team weren't specified. She had been having a meltdown in, ironically, the Pit of Despair. The cameras were still rolling. However, she eventually vomited everywhere, and they had to stop to re-record after everything was cleaned up."[3]

No one knows why it happened. However, it is possible she was overly tired as Temple Runs would be recorded during the nighttime hours.[4]

There isn't much more information on this than what's already been stated, but despite the slim chance of it still existing, it can be easily assumed that this was confiscated due to the fact the take couldn't be used.
