He did look pretty pissed off after losing, so maybe he was crying? And like PP4L said, his eyes did look swollen and red. I guess after a long day of filming and coming so close to reaching the artifact but losing, I could see how that would upset him.

Not to mention, it was usually a long day for those kids that make it to the temple. By then, they are probably worn out and exhausted. Even Tiffani looked like she was about to fall apart at the end of her temple run. As for Ryan, I can definitely see the puffiness in his left eye. I never noticed this before either. He did look pissed off too during the credits. Its not like they would've won anyways, Dawn was so slow and she should've been able to grab the Pearl Necklace. I am surprised though that rarely any contestant is showed crying on camera. Missy was crying, but that was more tears of joy. Hallie looked like she was about cry at the end of her temple run too.

Unrelated to the Pearl Necklace of Gwalior, I watched the Mussel Shell Armor episode recently and came across this interesting camera shot during the credits. As you can see, the camera is doing a panoramic sweep of the whole temple and captures a view of "what lies beyond the temple." There's nothing specific to speculate about; I just thought it was neat. Photo courtesy video posted on youtube.com by ChargerTheWolf.

Good find, I love when we see views of the temple that we normally don't. In this case, the camera even goes slightly off the temple's set. I always wondered how it was like to watch a temple run from the audience's view? It definitely wouldn't be the same that we are use to. Would be nice though to see how it looked from that angle.  :o

Well, for the people sitting perpendicular to the Moat, they would not have seen the temple, would they? Those seats were directly next to the steps to enter the temple, and then the temple itself only slightly arched around. So I'm not sure if they actually would have had a good view, or if there were just teleprompters or something of the sort giving them a view of the "arena" (I remember there being a discussion elsewhere on this site that asked what the word for where the Temple Games were played, and Kirk Fogg used the term "arena" in one episode, so that's what I'll use).

Here are two interesting photos after two temple runs.

First, I present to you Larry's walk of shame after his failure with the Silver Monkey (The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley) :





And two photos after the temple run for The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible. First pic is what the back of an Ancient Warrior suit looks like. Second pic is Elisa after the suit quickly turned around (almost three seconds later) :


           



Some interesting photos, and they were back to back episodes too. Discarded Seal came first, but I thought Larry's shameful walk was hilarious, so I posted it first. I wonder why the production team did this to two episodes back to back. Seeing the back side of the Ancient Warrior suit is unique. Those black slots look like where the temple guard would put his hands in. It also looks like it had some kind of unique ancient design on it too.

I have some interesting photos regarding the headdresses in the Room of the Ancient Warriors from the "Smashed Printing Plate" run. In the first photo, it is clear that the temple guard's arms fit though the black fabric slots. In the second photo, the armor flipped back around and the guard's hands can still be seen through the black fabric slots. I chose this episode's run because the guard's hands did a little "wave" during the second photo, and I like to go back and get a chuckle from it. It's the one thing about this run that I find enjoyably funny. Photos courtesy video on youtube.com posted by ChargerTheWolf.

Here's another interesting photo in the Room of the Ancient Warriors in The Battle Flag of William the Conqueror episode.

If you can see something near the bottom right of the room, what or who is it?

Looks like a camera guy. You could see them in the camera frame once in a while.

Speaking of moments including cameramen, how about this one from The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain?




And a few seconds later from the same run:




First one has the red circle I drew. That's clearly a cameraman. The second picture looks like his camera had a cord plugged into it. I always found these two pictures to be odd. They're just unusual. Imagine if Jarrid had tripped over that cord. There would be lawsuits if that cord somehow cost him the win or gave him an injury. :P

Yep, that is indeed a cameraman in GM1's photo. The cameramen were bound to show up in some frames in one episode or another.

Yeah, right when GM1 posted the camera man image from "William the Conqueror" I immediately thought of the camera man in the "Pirate Captain" episode running on the top floor of the temple while Jarrid was escaping. I remember some people thought that was a temple guard too.  :mrgreen:

They're just unusual. Imagine if Jarrid had tripped over that cord. There would be lawsuits if that cord somehow cost him the win or gave him an injury. :P

There were several episodes where those cords were within camera shot. I have four other instances below, courtesy video posted on youtube.com by ChargerTheWolf.




The upper left photo was taken in the "Silver Cannonball" run. When Amber smashed the pots in the King's Storeroom, the camera looked down to show the pot hitting the floor. In doing so, it also showed a wire in the lower right-hand corner of the shot.

The upper right photo was taken during the "Golden Earring of Henry Morgan" run. As Shem runs into the King's Storeroom, the camera does a panoramic sweep of the room. Under Shem's shoe, a thick coil of wires can be seen in this shot.

The lower left photo was taken during the "Smashed Printing Plate" run, when Jason first enters the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Cords can be seen taped to the floor throughout the entire room.

The lower right photo was taken as Kristen grabbed the "Jewel-Encrusted Egg." In the very bottom right corner, underneath the middle armor, a bundle of wires can be seen on the floor.

Plus, sometimes you'd see camera people in the temple. Some used to confuse the camera/stage hands as temple guards walking around.

But the temple guards were assigned to specific rooms, and they were stationed behind doors or hidden beneath Styrofoam blocks (Swamp, Quicksand Bog) so that they could not be seen until they were going in for the capture...
