Kirk Fogg Dishes on New 'Legends of the Hidden Temple' Reboot

'90s Nick Kids rejoiced on Tuesday (May 11) when The CW announced that they were rebooting Nickelodeon's iconic game show Legends of the Hidden Temple for adults! However, as the announcement didn't mention a host, one of the biggest questions fans had - apart from "how do I apply to be on the show?" - was whether we would see the show's original host, Kirk Fogg returning.

You might recall, Kirk headed up hosting duties when Legends originally ran for 3 seasons in the mid-'90s. So, with that in mind, TMZ asked the man himself if he was coming back to pick up the baton again. Check out his answer - he didn't say no!

It doesn't sound like he'll necessarily be hosting this new version, but he says he's in talks with the network and aiming to be involved in some capacity.

It could be that Legends follows in the footsteps of Double Dare. When Nickelodeon revived that game show a few years ago with new host Liza Koshy, original host Marc Summers also returned to provide color commentary on the challenges and lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode.

Kirk previously returned to the property in 2016 for Nickelodeon's Legends of the Hidden Temple movie.

Kirk also revealed what what the studio/arena will look like. However, he might have spilled more than he should by revealing it's gonna be WAY bigger than the OG one kids were running back in the day -- but still faithful to Olmec's original labyrinths.

In The CW's announcement, the network revealed that the entire show is being taken out of the studio into a "jungle" and scaled up with tougher challenges and much bigger prizes on the line.

And, as far as potential contestants, well, TMZ's reporter actually pitched an idea Kirk was digging. The failed contenders from once upon a time could get a redo!

If you really want some nostalgia, peep the end of our video to hear Kirk's rehashed line from the end of the old episodes. Dude's still got it!
