PROG refers to an alliance featuring the Purple, Red, and Orange Teams, with either Green or Gray completing the quartet.

Endurance Edit

No PROG alliance was made, because Purple and Orange were against Red and Gray with the former's Brotherhood alliance and the latter two teams allying with Yellow. However, both broke apart as Blue gave Orange the Samadhi, and Gray was the first team eliminated from the show, with Blue replacing them as the third member of the Red-Yellow-Blue alliance.

Purple, Orange, and Green had similar goals: to break up the strong alliance; however, two of the three teams were eliminated consecutively before the final four. The Green Team won House of Cards to break the Red-Yellow-Blue monopoly on missions; despite giving Blue the Samadhi, they were eliminated the next episode when the Blue Team won the mission and Yellow beat them at Temple.

After Max and Jenna arrived in Washout, two separate camps emerged in terms of their reception. The Green and Yellow Teams were happy to see the two former E1 contestants together and formed an alliance with them. On the other hand, the Red, Purple, Orange, and Gray Teams, along with Scooter Magruder on the Blue Team, were not pleased and conspired to have the Brown Team kicked out.

Yet this was a weak alliance, as Orange sought to go home, only to have Gray be eliminated first instead. By Fireball, Purple grew closer to the Green-Yellow-Brown alliance and gave Orange the Samadhi, and they were sent to their second consecutive Temple, this time against Red, who were eliminated.

Afterward, Orange and Purple stayed together on mutual terms, with the latter team awarding them their six pieces in the final three.

After the events of Pick Your Partner, the Purple, Red, Orange, and Gray Teams formed an alliance. It was primarily based on the friendships between Rachel, Nicole, Sarah, and Lindi; together, they were hostile towards Bryanah on the Yellow Team because they believed she created all the drama, particularly after the Partner Selection.

The Purple Team won Ring of Fire, which was the first major win for the alliance. When discussing about the teams out on the island, all four of these teams considered the Yellow Team to be the weakest team. And despite Reece stating that one should give the Samadhi to the strongest team, they decided to give it to Yellow due to previous bad blood. The alliance was almost ended in Bagging on You, as Yellow overcame the Samadhi and sent Orange with Blue to the Temple of Fate, but survived and swore revenge.

Their control over the game expanded even more in Squaring Off, as they targeted the Green-Yellow-Brown alliance to the point where they wouldn't even get a chance to participate in the challenge, until Reece let them take a turn. Eventually, Nicole pressured Vanetta into granting them power again, and Orange ultimately won the Temple Mission, proceeding to send Green home.

After Yellow's victory in Out on a Limb, the alliance was divided with Purple and Gray on the "powerhouse" SuperTeam and Red and Orange on the "outcast" SuperTeam. When Red was eliminated in the following episode, they implored the remaining three members to keep the alliance intact, although Orange was plotting a secret alliance with Yellow and Brown.

Shortly afterward, Nicole exposed this alliance to Chris, cementing a rift between her and Demian, although Gray and Purple punished Yellow for this with the Samadhi and a trip to Temple with Brown, where the latter team was eliminated. But when Yellow won Try Tri Again in the final four, Nicole decided to form an alliance with them to avoid elimination, which worked as Purple was eliminated.

Afterward, both Orange and Gray made it to the Endurance finale, where Gray won.

Endurance: Tehachapi Edit

No PROG alliance was made— Purple and Green had their own separate alliance with Yellow, in which they considered the Red Team as a nominal rival. Early on in the game, the four teams turned against Orange because they saw Michael as a rat for switching from the Blue-Gray alliance to theirs.

This PROG alliance began in the partner selection, when Dakota won the mission and partnered the teams they were supposed to. Their power began in the next episode, where Garret and Anna left the Triangle of Immunity to the Purple Team, ensuring that they were spared from Temple for a time.

They were suspicious of the Blue Team, because Ike was going around spouting out his plans, which even irritated his partner Taylor. When that same team unexpectedly won Hot Potato, Red and Green volunteered to switch, although the other two teams strategized to have Blue and Gray switched instead, because they were targets of the alliance.

Ultimately, Red executed the latter plan, only to have Blue become an even stronger team as a result of the team switch. The PROG alliance proceeded to systematically eliminate Gray and Yellow, and sent Blue to Temple on a regular basis, only to have them break the Three Temple Curse and make the final three with Green and Purple.

However, like the Red-Yellow-Blue alliance of E1, this variation of PROG was beset by inner turmoil as the game went along; specifically, Purple and Green's close friendship annoyed the other two alliance members, especially Max of Orange, who tried to spare Yellow during Superboats by sending Green with Blue to Temple, to no avail. After Yellow's elimination, Kelsey spent more time with Taylor, much to Cealey's chagrin, although she revealed to her and Aeriel in Create Your Own Game that this was a strategy to spare Purple from harm.

Afterward, Green and Purple made it to the Endurance finale, where Green won.

Endurance: FijiEdit

No PROG alliance was made, although the last two colors (Orange and Green) of the quartet had their own secret alliance; Red frequently served as a third wheel to them, and all three teams quickly targetted Purple from the beginning of the game.
