Many of us still fondly remember the TV shows we grew up on. For the Nickelodeon generation, “Legends of the Hidden Temple” is a show that’s been talked about for more than 20 years, since it first aired.
Now it’s back with a new host, Rio Grande Valley comedian, actress and activist, Cristela Alonzo. The new “Legend of the Hidden Temple” is staying true to the original. But instead of kids, the contestants are adults who grew up watching the show. The updated version throws them into the temple games. It airs Sundays on the CW at 7 pm Central, and is available to stream the next day for free on CW’s website.
Alonzo joined Texas Standard to talk about the show, how important it is to have fun and coming back to TV. Listen to the full interview in the audio player above or read the transcript below.
