    Oh i caught the 2cd episode at the end. But all i know is everyone was bickering about partners. This season seems like it's going to have much stronger players then the last two Endurance's. There's one girl who i know is going to annoy me this season.

    Recap ep 1 from DK website

    Weekly Recap
    Episode One: Balance is the Key


    The fifth season of Endurance begins as 20 teenagers from around the country journey into the High Sierras, all hoping not to leave until they have earned the title of Endurance champion. After a long trek (and a fall or two), the group finally makes their way up to the ridge, where JD is awaiting their arrival. He welcomes the group and warns them about the adventure they are embarking on. Not only do they have nature to contend with, but they will also have to accomplish things they never thought possible and, ultimately, beat out the other players standing next to them. JD reminds the contestants that to win, they will have to get all 13 Endurance pieces. And this year there is one more element they should keep in mind: karma. How they play the game is going to be just as important as who wins it. The group is a little perplexed, but very excited to hear that no one will be going home this first day! JD sends them to go check out their lodging and says he will see them tomorrow.
    The kids run off to discover their new home and are amazed to see that they will be living in treehouses! They excitedly run through the huts, claiming bunks and exploring all the levels of “the most awesome treehouses ever,“ as this year’s huts are quickly dubbed. They also discover a crow’s nest lookout point and a large wooden swing. They are all ecstatic to be there, and no one wants to think about anyone going home the next day.

    In the morning, JD gathers the group together and gives them a clue about their first challenge: the right-to-stay mission. They will need speed, agility and balance … and four people will be going home! All are saddened by this news, but JD has the first of many surprises up his sleeve. One boy and one girl will be granted a huge advantage today — a free pass to avoid the right-to-stay mission! The catch this year is that the girls will choose the girl and the boys will choose the boy.

    Once JD has left the contestants to make their decisions, the girls quickly and efficiently decide that the fairest method is to cast a silent vote. Each girl writes down her vote, and they end up with a tie between Kelsey and Darci. The girls decide to have a revote between those two girls. Kelsey, Cealey and Martina all cling onto each other while they await the result. Darci easily wins it - capturing all but one vote. Darci is very surprised and all congratulate her. Kelsey sheds a few tears, but Darci tells her to use this as motivation in the game.

    With their vote complete, Taylor leads several girls to check on what the boys are up to. There has been nothing but chaos surrounding the vote in the guys’ hut. They bicker about the best way to decide, and matters become worse when the girls insert their opinions on how to make the decision. Adrian is convinced that he wants the pass the most and should therefore receive it. Eventually, Dakota has a brilliant idea: “Let’s pull names out of a hat!“ The group argues over whether drawing randomly is fair, but ultimately decides it is the easiest way. Who will be the lucky one?

    Finally, JD gathers the group together to hear their decisions. The girls announce that they have chosen Darci, and the guys announce that Aric will receive the free pass. JD congratulates the first two official players of Endurance, but he has one little extra twist for the players. He reminds them of his warning about karma and announces that Darci and Aric will now be able to return the favor and grant one more free pass each! The kids are completely caught off-guard and start yelling out suggestions for who to pick. Darci tells JD she’s giving it to Kelsey, since they had a tie-breaker. As the guys await their fate, Adrian appears nervous and hopeful. But Aric surprises everyone when he chooses Alex. Adrian is crushed and feels betrayed. JD congratulates the four players who get to skip the right-to-stay mission, but warns the others that they must now earn their spots on Endurance.

    The group gathers at the water, and JD explains the mission. Each player will have to walk on balance beams over the water to complete five laps back and forth. The last two players to finish the course will be automatically eliminated. The girls will be competing first.

    The girls’ game begins. Right away, several of the girls fall in, proving that this mission is a lot harder than it looks. They all struggle to complete their first laps. Kristine is the first to finish, followed quickly by Lilly, then Taylor. Stefanie, Aeriel, Martina and Anna are having a lot of trouble even making it to the first landing. Soon, Lilly emerges as the clear leader, gracefully finishing each lap without ever falling in the water! She finishes the entire game minutes before some girls even have their first lap, securing her spot on the show. Gradually, other girls complete the game: Taylor, Kristine and Cealey all become official Endurance players. It comes down to the fight for the last two spots: Aeriel, Anna, Martina and Stefanie must find a way to endure their exhaustion to claim a spot in the game. Which two girls will persevere and wind up as the final two female contestants? Find out next time, on Endurance: High Sierras!

    Recap ep 2 from DK website

    Weekly Recap
    Episode Two: Hanging Around


    The show begins with a dogfight for the final two girls’ spots on Endurance: High Sierras. Aeriel, Anna, Martina and Stefanie struggle to find a way to persevere through their exhaustion to claim a contestant spot in the game. Aeriel is the first of the final four to finish five laps — she’s now an official Endurance 5 player! Then Martina, who’s had trouble balancing on the wet beams from the outset of the game and has suffered several harsh falls, tearfully bows out of the contest. It’s down to Anna and Stefanie for the final spot. In the end Anna finishes the course slightly before Stephanie, becoming the eighth official contestant of Endurance: High Sierras.
    Now it’s the boys’ turn to earn their right to stay on Endurance 5. The game begins, and Dakota is the first to finish. One by one, each boy finishes until it is down to the final four: Cameron, Ike, Raphael and Adrian. Pushing himself to the end, Cameron finishes next, securing his place amongst the official boy contestants. Ike finishes soon after Cameron, claiming the eighth and final spot! The final girl and boy players hug with enthusiasm as JD welcomes the 16 of them to Endurance 5. The unfortunate kids who didn’t make it say their goodbyes.

    A new day begins with the fresh faces of our final contenders. Still beaming from their accomplishments of the day before, their smiles quickly fade as JD announces that their next challenge will be played for partner selection. This game is key, because it is going to determine who their partner will be for the rest of Endurance. But before he leaves, JD adds another twist to the mix when he explains that the winner of the challenge will get to pick the first team — but it won’t be their own!

    JD’s news leads to mass hysteria, as the kids fumble to make the perfect partner list. Problems ensue as they learn that not everybody wants the person who wants them, and vice versa. Dakota, playing it coy in the beginning, withholds from revealing the girl he really wanted as a partner: Kelsey. Upon finally announcing it, he creates a small controversy and everyone begins to speak up and come out of their shells. Meanwhile, Taylor, quickly earning a reputation for drama, is enraged at the possibility of being paired with Garret. It has been openly discussed that Garret is strongly disliked by the boys, so whoever is partnered with him will most likely be sent to Temple. The boys unanimously decide that no one wants Taylor as their partner, as she causes tension and will drag her partner down. A plan is devised to put Garret and Taylor together so that they can be eliminated as a team later on.

    As teams are being formed, Garret, who makes it known that he wants Cealy (despite the fact that she and Alex have claimed to be a pair), threatens to win the mission so that he can mess with the order and get the partner he wants. Widespread fear sets in as the kids realize that Garret’s conniving scheme could actually take place. Now more than ever, the kids know what is on the line. If they want the partner order to remain intact, they must not allow Garret to win this challenge.

    Nerves are on edge as the kids walk toward the partner challenge. Taylor, Dakota and Cealy express their anxiety about the outcome of the game — everything depends on this. JD welcomes the kids and makes reference to the obvious tension amid the group. He explains the game, “Hangin‘ Around.” The kids will have to hang from a metal bar, suspended over the water. The last one to fall in the water (thus holding on the longest) will have the right to choose the first team of Endurance. The team that has just been chosen will then get to choose the next team, and so on down the line.

    The game begins, and due to sweaty palms and bad grips, the kids begin to fall within seconds. Kelsey is the first to voice her concern, yelling out, “I’m gonna fall! I can’t hold on!” Taylor quickly follows Kelsey, who screams out that she too is losing her grip. Suddenly, a falling cry is heard off-screen, and the sound of splashing water quickly follows. Someone has fallen — but who is it? Find out next time, on Endurance: High Sierras!

    This year's season is looking good. They competed for their colors on the last ep and 1 team eliminated without the temple of fate. If you haven't checked yet, 15 out of the 20 contestants are on MSN Boards EnduranceOnDiscoveryKids.

    ep 3 recap

    Episode Three: Unwind


    We enter the episode mid-game, with all 16 contestants clinging for dear life onto a bar suspended high above the water. Each is hoping to win the chance to select the first team of Endurance: High Sierras. From the start, we hear the cries of several contestants struggling to hang on, but Kesley stands out as she yells, “I’m gonna fall! I can’t hold on!” Despite her fellow competitors’ encouragement, she is the first to fall. Taylor quickly follows her. As they fall one after the other, the remaining kids are doing everything in their power to beat out Garret. No one wants him to win, because everyone thinks he’ll mess up the prearranged teams that almost everyone else had agreed to. Glances are exchanged as the remaining contestants hang on — they cannot let Garret win this challenge! Eventually, Garret falls. The last two remaining are Lilly and Dakota. Lilly eventually succumbs to the pain, leaving Dakota the winner of the Partner Selection challenge.
    Most of the kids are relieved. Now that Garret has lost the challenge, they know that the partner list they created is safe and Dakota will stick to the plan they originally agreed upon. JD congratulates the kids on their efforts and reminds them about how the partner selection will work. The selection begins, and since he won the challenge, Dakota starts it off. Following the script, he chooses Cameron and Aeriel as the first team. Cameron returns the favor and chooses Dakota and Kelsey as the next team. They then choose Alex and Cealy, followed by Arik and Lilly and Max and Kristine. The kids remaining are Connor, Darci, Garret, Taylor, Anna and Ike. A look of panic spreads over Taylor’s face and she begins to cry. JD, concerned, asks her if she is OK. Taylor says she is upset at how this partner selection has turned out, and knows who her partner will be. JD urges her to recall other Partner Selection games from past seasons — you never know what will happen!

    It is now time for Max and Kristine to choose the next team: Connor and Darci. With only four kids remaining — Taylor, Anna, Ike and Garret — Connor knows that he is essentially being forced to pick the last two teams. JD asks if Connor and Darci are prepared to make the choice. Knowing the severity of the situation, Connor asks for some time to think and discuss it over with his partner. The anticipation is agonizing as the kids silently wait for their decision. Finally, Connor reveals — to Taylor’s elation — that they’re choosing to pair Isaac and Taylor for the seventh team, leaving Garret paired with Anna.

    The contestants are happy after partner selection is over, as almost everyone got their partner of choice. But the feeling of happiness doesn’t last long. JD reveals the latest bombshell of Endurance 5: The first team elimination game will be that day, and by nightfall, one of the newly formed teams will be leaving the High Sierras forever.

    The eight teams head back to the tree houses to get to know their partners before one team has to go home. Alex and Cealey talk about how the communication between the two of them has to flow in order for them to be a strong team. Connor and Darci discuss who they think has their backs and that Arik and Lilly would be good allies to have because they’re so strong. Taylor is completely shocked that she ended up with Isaac instead of Garret, and she has come to terms with getting Isaac as a partner. In fact, everyone but Anna is content with their new teammate. Anna tries to get Garret to talk to her, but he has a hard time opening up. She begins to get nervous because she feels like they aren’t communicating very well and is scared that their team will end up being the first one to go home.

    After having the chance to talk with their new teammates, everyone meets JD to play the day’s elimination game, “Unwind”. The contestants arrive to find ropes wound and tied through a wooden fence. The partners will be tied to each other by rope and the object of the game is to work through the logs and untangle enough rope to allow them to cross the finish line. After they cross it, they can unhook themselves from the rope and run to the available team color of their choice. In addition to receiving a color, JD tells everyone that each team will receive its first Endurance piece. However, the team that comes in last place will not receive a team color and, worse, will be sent home immediately.

    The game begins and everyone is fired up and determined not to come in last place. Anna and Garret are the first team to check if they have enough rope to make it to the finish line, but they fall short. After a few moments, Alex and Cealey are the first to accomplish the task and they run to green. Dakota and Kelsey are right behind them and they pick purple. Cameron and Aeriel choose red, Isaac and Taylor take blue, Max and Kristine pick orange, and Arik and Lilly choose yellow. The only color left is gray and it comes down to Connor and Darci and Garret and Anna. At the last second, Connor and Darci make an attempt to see if they have enough rope to cross the finish line. Garret and Anna aren’t too far behind, but they fall just short of making it. Connor and Darci beat them by the slightest of margins and become the gray team.

    Anna and Garret are disappointed to be leaving Endurance so early on, but JD awards them with the “Friendship” piece, which this year on Endurance represents the Triangle of Immunity. Having this piece is essentially a “get out of Temple free” card that a team can use for itself or give to another team. Anna and Garret still have the power to influence the game one last time before they leave, by leaving the Triangle of Immunity to one of the remaining teams. With that in mind, everyone bids a tearful goodbye to Anna and Garret as they leave the game for good.

    The remaining seven teams meet JD at the Pillars of Endurance, where JD reveals that the grand prize of Endurance: High Sierras is a trip to Hawaii. The kids are ecstatic when they hear the news and are all pumped to win. The game is officially on, but to whom did Anna and Garret leave the all-important Triangle of Immunity? Find out next time on Endurance: High Sierras

    About time they created an immunity of some kind in this game, but Taylor's team that needs it the most probably will never get it.

    I have a crush on Aeriel.
    RED, Yellow, Blue and Green are my favorite teams.
    I got really confused last night with that samadhi (sp?)
    and the team switching thing. I hope Red, Green, and Blue stays togther.

    Hi, I'm new. I love this show. I know Julie from last season, and my friend knew Jezie. She says she wasn't really as mean as she seemed on camera. I think alot of it's scripted. Anyway. I like the blue team. I always root for the underdogs.

    I wouldn't say scripted because that involves reading and memorizing a script, I would say more creative editing.
