Endurance 2 is the second season of Endurance, taking place in Baja, Mexico. While some of the concepts of the game remain the same, there are new surprises in store for the twenty new contestants. The season featured all new challenges.


Endurance was renewed for a second season that began filming in the summer of 2003. Endurance 2 was taped in Baja California, near the resort town of La Paz, Mexico. Twenty new contestants, ages 12 - 15, were chosen. One contestant, 14-year old Tyler Burkhalter, competed despite having diabetes requiring daily insulin treatments.


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.


The biggest twist of the season was the Brown Team, made up of two returning contestants from season one. Max and Jenna won a vote held during the Endurance reunion, and earned the right to compete again. Two new pyramid pieces have been added; Teamwork and Ingenuity. There is also an additional elimination because of the new team.
