Endurance Comes To The Coast

It's becoming more and more popular to see television shows where people leave behind everything they are used to--and put their survival skills to the test. But what if those people are just teenagers?

The Discovery Channel show, "Endurance" is holding auditions on the Coast this weekend to find out which teens have what it takes to endure.

About 75 kids at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum took the time to compete for a spot in the second season of the reality show Endurance.

14-year old Jolissia Bogan looked like she had what it takes to hang in there and endure. She's a fan of the show and believes she is exactly what the show is looking for.

She said, "I think I'm competitive and have spirits and hope and everything and basically because I just want to be on there, you know, just to see what I can do."

Jolissia's confidence is what the teen show is all about: finding the endurance to fulfill your dreams.

J.D. Roth, the show's host, said, "I think it's an opportunity for kids to come on and learn never to take no for an answer. That if your boss, you know when you get older, says you can't do something; your teacher says you are not good enough; you can always dig down deep and find the endurance to go beyond . So we try to teach the kids about feats of endurance throughout history. That if the Wright brothers took no for an answer, you wouldn't be able to fly to see your grandparents today."

Season Two of Endurance will take place in a secret location outside of the United States. Biloxi is the last city to have a shot for a possible passport..

Will you be able to endure? If you are 12 to 15 years old and think you have what it takes to endure, auditions will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.
