Enduring the Endurance Setting

When JD Roth realized that a large majority of kids were tuning into the reality TV show Survivor each week, he set out to create a show that would have a more positive message. Just like Survivor though, Endurance strands 20 contestants each season in a remote location - far from the comforts of home. Take a look at the past, and current, settings of this Discovery Kids show!

Endurance: Season One - Deserted Pacific Island

The very first season of Endurance found 20 kids stranded on a deserted island off the coast of California. These islands are home to many of California's seabirds, sea lions, seals and other endangered species. During this season, the contestants had to battle cold weather, rocky terrain and complete isolation. It is estimated that these islands were formed almost 100 million years ago from underwater seismic and volcanic activity!
Season One Winners: Blue Team - Jonna Mannion and Aaron Thornburg.
Grand Prize: A trip to the Amazon.

Endurance: Season Two - Baja, Mexico

The location for the second season of Endurance definitely tested the abilities of contestants to adapt to new surroundings. The dry, barren landscape of Baja, Mexico is home to rattlesnakes, scorpions, tarantulas and other poisonous critters. While filming in Baja, temperatures got as high as 128 degrees! So, not only did contestants have to deal with physical and mental exhaustion, they also needed to be constantly aware of dehydration.
Season Two Winners: Brown Team - Jenna Jimenez and Max Deleo.
Grand Prize: A trip to the Bahamas.

Endurance: Season Three - Hawaii

Season three found Endurance contestants in a very different setting. This time around, the show was filmed in the jungles of Kauai, Hawaii. Lush vegetation surrounded them and soon they found out why things in Kauai were so green! The season three contestants faced 21 straight days of rain! Kauai is home to an assortment of beautiful tropical birds, like the Hawaiian Duck, Red-footed Boobies and the Laysan Albatross. Several of these Kauai residents are on the endangered species list.
Season Three Winners: Gold Team - Lindi Oest and Chris Vanderweir.
Grand Prize: A trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Endurance: Season Four - Tehachapi

Four thousand feet above sea level, Tehachapi is one of the most unique Endurance settings yet. The site where the game will be played out was discovered more than 150 years ago by settlers traveling to California. They had no idea what lay beyond the mountains, but still they trekked through the desert and over the treacherous terrain. The land has been pretty much untouched since those original settlers came through - making it a very surreal setting for the contestants of Endurance 4!
Season Four Winners: Red Ream - Franke Sisto and Erika Cook.
Grand Prize: A trip to Costa Rica.

Endurance: Season Five - High Sierras

The latest season of Endurance takes place at Shaver Lake in the High Sierra Mountains of northern California. This location is set 5,500 feet above sea level and the area is known for its great skiing, snowmobiling and other winter sports. During the summer you can catch people water skiing, fishing and camping in the area. The famous Yosemite National Park is located in the High Sierras and the area also played a vital role in the Gold Rush of the 1800s!
Season Five Winners: You'll have to watch the show on Discovery Kids to find out!
Grand Prize: A trip to Hawaii.

That's because of our own human nature. We often value ourselves more than anyone else. Everybody affects everybody indirectly. People value progress over everything. One day the world will come crashing down, and with this crumbling and twisted society with it. Want to make a difference? Well, it's not too late to start.

I really hate how society is built. I really hate how unaccepting people are and how we have gotten this far due to sacrifices and inflicting pain on others. Why do we do this to our own kind? ​We are just destroying ourselves because we are unable to understand why some people do what they do. Why can't we just accept people for how they are? They're heart and their soul. I know the world can't be perfect but honestly right now the world isn't okay. Of course I'm just a kid so whatever I say won't matter but anyways that's just what has been on my mind lately :)

Well, when I cane out to my parents that I was bisexual, my mother told me that it was probably just a phase, and that I might grow out of it. I've been thinking about my sexuality for a couple years - since I was eleven, to be exact. Sometimes I thought I was straight and other times I thought I was a lesbian. So from this, I just figured I was bi. I also told her I'd like to tell some close friends what I thought. She told me that this info may get leaked to many more people and that they're shun me. I told her that I won't tell this to anyone whom I don't trust, and that I don't care if people shun me for being who I am. People already make fun of me for being biracial (my father is white & my mother is black) so this'll be no different. I told two friends that I was bisexual. Luckily both girls said they'd support me no matter what. My father then came in and said that he didn't want me to come out lest I'd get so much attention that's it'd me a distraction. I understand me dad's point but not my mom's. I love my mother dearly and shall listen to her, but I still get super pissed when adults think that teens' coming out is invalid. What do you think? Tell me I'm the thread posts! :rainbow ❤ Thanks!! :) Have a wonderful day! ❤ @Sophieex_ I have the same problem! I am also bi! Only one of my closest friends know, I feel your pain!!! I created my account when I thought I was straight.
