Hear the Call of Nepenthes

Not to digress too far from the original point that 100F isn't going to kill anything (esp. a maxima hybrid) as long as there is humidity and the nights are cool, but macrophylla is absolutely an ultrahighlander, as is hamata (depending on the locale.)

Also growing in the same 100 degree conditions are lots of diatas, singalana, rajah, jacquelineae, densiflora, and probably some assorted other chilly plants.
To the OP: If you can provide a more detailed description of your growing conditions (daily/seasonal temperature fluctuations, humidity, hours and intensity of sunlight, etc.) it would be easier to recommend plants.
