E1 was the only season without the eliminated teams giving them letters, as their pieces would be up for grabs in the next Endurance Mission.
However, in Plant the Flag, Max sent a letter, indicating his disappointment and betrayal when he was eliminated.
"Give it to the next team you want to betray."
"Throughout the entire time, I had an awesome time with you. You are a great person and friend....I will miss you so much and I hope we keep in touch. Love, Jon."
"Green team and Yellow team, I'm sorry for the way I acted; I'm not usually like that— a game can truly bring out the worst in someone.
To the Purple team: Good luck, and take care of our Heart pyramid piece— send Tyler home! We stayed true to the alliance.
Maryelle and Wayne."
"Dear everybody except Mike and Keetin,
I had a really fun time with all of you, and I hope to spend more. Annie, you are so awesome and such a strong person inside and out; Shep, you really helped me with the physical and mental stress.
Mike and Keetin, that was so wrong of you guys— I can't wait to see Green Team go home after the next Temple Mission. Scooter, you have so much heart so we decided to give Blue our Discipline piece. We believe that you two will be the winners.
Jacquelynn and Phil.
P.S. Now everyone knows Green's true colors— and I hope Keetin gets bitten by a chicken!"
From Blue: Edit
"Dear whomever it may concern,
If you are reading this letter, it is probably because we are no longer here— at this point we are enjoying cold ice cream.
To the Brown team: you had guts in giving us the Samadhi and sending us to Temple, and for that we compliment you; Green, we hope you can endure and win; finally, Purple, we leave our pieces to you and hope you or Green win it all.
We had so much fun; thanks for the adventure of a lifetime— we will never forget you!
Scooter and Christa."
From Yellow: Edit
"To the zoo crew:
We will all miss you very much!
To Purple: next time, don't tell both teams you send to Temple that you want them both back— and don't use personal reasons as an excuse!
To Brown, Max and Jenna: y'all were great; we're glad you got asked back from Endurance 1; do whatever it takes to kick Purple off. To help Brown out, we leave you our Commitment piece— stay committed to winning.
Bye y'all, Shep and Calley."
From Purple: Edit
"To Michelle, Tyler, Jenna, Max, Mike and Keetin:
Overall, you guys were great! Jeff and I love you all— Mike, we trusted you; you should've sent Orange!
Michelle, you've gone through so much; Jeff and I respect you more than words can say— Michelle, you definitely deserve to win; henceforth, our six pieces are yours.
Sorry Brown team; we'll still miss you all, Annie and Jeff."
Endurance 3: HawaiiEdit
"First of all, there's nothing wrong with what Yellow did and they're cool with us; secondly, Orange— we're cheering for you.
Thirdly, we'd like the rest of you to remember Blue not for their complaints, but only as a pair of kids trying to sort and settle stuff out; Orange team, our Commitment piece is yours, good luck!
Antonio and Willa."
"We're so happy that you two are still in the game; it was crazy competing against some of our favorite people here— you need to tell Demian how sorry we feel for him and that he needs to step up and not let her make his decisions. The four-fingered viking wants all the guys & girls to be friendly; he seriously loves each and every one of you— and Alex does too!
"Yellow will be receiving our Heart piece because it's a close real friendship— Heart didn't win out for us, but we still believe in its value; you guys need to start taking control in this game to find the true Endurance Champions.
Love, Alex and Bjorn."
From Red: Edit
"Yellow team, we've had our doubts, and now we truly know we really can't trust you; Brown team— Tom, you gotta stay focused on the game, and not other things [you know what we mean].
To the Orange, Gray and Purple teams: keep our alliance alive— out of anyone here, you have been the most trustworthy to us, Purple team; and for that, we leave you our piece.
Kareem and Rachel."
From Brown: Edit
"Hey y'all; what's goin' down?
Gray and Purple, y'all should be glad that you're winning so much; Yellow, we love you so much, and Vanetta says yo! Out of all the teams left in the game, I believe you've persevered the most— you guys have been beaten down in every way possible, but you keep on truckin'. And for that, I leave you the Perseverance piece.
From Purple: Edit
"Dear Gray, Orange and Yellow:
It's definitely been a fun experience out here in the jungle; we love each and everyone staying here.
Orange, Sarah still loves Nicole so much, even though you did send us to the Temple; Yellow, it's been great and real— a bit shaky at times, but we got through it all; Gray, you've been greatest friends to us, as well as the greatest rivals— we leave our three pieces to you; you deserve them the most, as you need to win the game— Sarah's eating right now, as we're writing this!
Peace out, Reece and Sarah!"
From Yellow: Edit
"What's up finalists?
All four of you should be proud of the accomplishments that you've made— some more than others.
Demian, Monroe felt the most comfortable around you, and he felt sorry that you had Nicole as a partner; but hey, you chose her! Nicole, we both feel that you need to learn the facts of life before you live them; if you're unsure, you should ask Demian, he'll tell you the truth.
Lindi, Monroe's first thought of you was that you were putting on a fake front— but he learned that wasn't true, and that he shouldn't stereotype people; he also thinks you're very genuine, as well as beautiful, and that you shouldn't let people push you around. To Chris [Chrissypoo!], we always thought you were King of the jungle, and we feel bad we didn't form a friendship sooner; our battle wounds from you will never fade— Bry says that she'll cherish all the memories, crying or not.
Gray team, even though we can't leave you our two pieces, we still hope you kick butt and win the game; you deserve it the most.
Monroe and Bryanah!"
