I support the Purple Parrots in this episode EASILY. Noelle and Pat were one of the most undeserving teams in the temple and one of the worst teams in Season 3 only beaten by Snow Cone. :roll: The Green Monkeys literally couldn't even make it past the bottom floor. -_______- The Purple Parrots would've done much better than these two losers. And I know I can count on Zac's younger bro to meet my expectations too!  :mrpurple: I predict they would've made it the Shrine at least, but would've lost because the layout was cruel. The Green Monkeys had no right to be in the temple. After Golden Cricket Cage, this is the second biggest time I wanted to see the Purple Parrots in the temple!

Definitely yes. Noelle and Pat DID NOT deserve to go to the temple. :roll:

Seriously, WHO THE HELL could ever defend Noelle and Pat? They were a terrible team and did NOT deserve to go to the temple. :roll: First of all, they barely scraped by each episode. Second of all, they sucked at their temple games. Just look at Pat in his temple game for crying out loud. He literally was not even trying in the trampoline game he played. They only got to the temple because of the tiebreaker question. So fucking what if Noelle got to the buzzer first? That's irrelevant to me. And then they spend the whole temple run walking through every room and not trying at all. :roll:

And why was Levi and his partner Candace better? They were second in the moat, swept the steps, KICKED ASS in their temple games. Only to completely blow it in the tiebreaker. For fuck sakes, are you trying to convince me they would've done a WORSE job in the temple? They wouldn't have gotten past the bottom floor either? They would've dwaddled through every single room in the temple? And don't give me that "well, you just hate Pat and Noelle because Levi didn't make it to the temple." :roll: We do not just hate the run because of that. People need to stop assuming that. You are seriously an idiot to think the Purple Parrots in this episode would've done a worse job in the temple. It's stupid to defend Noelle and Pat. They were a terrible team and did not AT ALL deserve to go to the temple. Period. End of story. And I can't believe people actually feel sorry for that team. That's just a mystery to me. That's fucking insane. Defend Noelle and Pat, your opinions are irrelevant. Case closed. :roll:

Well said! I can't believe anyone would ever think these two are a deserving team. I am supporting the Purple Parrots in this episode not because Zac's brother was on this team but since they were a strong team all day like you mentioned. Levi being Zac's younger brother is just the icing on top. ;) Pat and Noelle on the other hand scraped by all day. Didn't an old member here always criticize us for bashing Noelle and Pat? Maybe it was kamehameha or outer space? Either way, I can guarantee you that the Purple Parrots would've done than the Green Monkeys, no questions asked. I could go as far as to say they would've made it one room away! Too bad Candace lost her individual game as it went down to the wire and she was so close. Long story short, the Purple Parrots would've done a much better job than the Green Monkeys. After Golden Cricket Cage, I support this Purple Parrots team the most. ;)

I believe it was TAW who used to criticize us for bashing Noelle and Pat. And I believe GMW used to do the same. Hell she used to bash us for criticizing the Snow Cone team too. :shock: But yeah, Noelle and Pat were a mediocre team the entire way through. Noelle just lucked into her temple game win, Pat wasn't even trying, and they were just embarrassing to watch in the team game. I mean, it's true that their layout was impossible and winnable. But there's no doubt in my mind that Levi and Candace would've done a MUCH better job. Especially since they were second in the moat and swept the steps like I mentioned above. But I guess some people like to think that "if Levi and Candace won instead, then the results would be the same thing." So by that logic, Candace would've spent a minute dangling from a rope, walking through every room. And Levi would've spent a whole temple run trying to climb up a slide? Though the slide WAS slicked pretty much. So it's pretty obvious which team I support here. And that's naturally, Levi and Candace. Zac's brother owns, enough said. ;)

An emphatic YES for this one. Noelle and Pat didn't deserve to go into the temple one bit. They just lucked into getting the easiest tiebreaker question of all time. So easy that Jon and Tia could even get it right! :roll:

John and Tia definitely would've gotten that tiebreaker question right. I mean, didn't Kirk just give away the answer in the episode title just two seconds ago? And like Stone Marker, I would also go as far as saying Candace and Levi probably would've made it one room away. It probably would've been a Discarded Seal type ending, where the team does everything right, but still loses. Even if Zac and Levi were NOT related, or if there were no Zac interview, I'd still think the Purple Parrots should've won here. :afro:

Moving on, I don't think anyone out there would support the Green Monkeys in Xerxes. Just like TSM and Paintbrush said, even John and Tia would've gotten that tiebreaker question correct. So everyone unanimously supports Zac and Levi in this episode.  ;)

Next up is "The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass". In this episode, the Red Jaguars swept the Purple Parrots in the temple games. Despite the one-sided results, Jason of the Red Jaguars cheated not only once but almost twice! Inside the temple, Jason and Dana had a lot of difficulty with their layout with too many mistakes. Would Sharon and Gary do better than the Red Jaguars in this episode? Summary of the temple run below.

I support the Purple Parrots in the temple games despite them getting dominated in the temple games. Actually, they weren't dominated they lost to a pair of cheaters! Jason cheated in possibly two of the temple games. In the first temple game, Jason should've been made to wait until his opponent got back on the horse in order to throw a newspaper. And in the team game, he tries cheating by jumping over a row of poles. In the temple run, Jason and Dana did a horrible job. Jason was an awful frontrunner and he got lost in nearly every room and tried backtracking when he didn't know where to go. Plus, he missed a vital shortcut in the Dark Forest. Dana was a lost cause herself because she stilled managed to f*** up with her little time in the temple. Overall, the Red Jaguars were an awful team that bombed this temple run. And the temple run was even hard because the Red Jaguars in Queen Boadicea had an even tougher layout and they reached their artifact! Overall, I easily support the Purple Parrots in this episode and isn't even close. They would've done better than Dana and Jason. Unlike Zenobia, the Purple Parrots lost to a pair of cheaters. So my vote is an easy yes. :roll:

Another easy yes here. I don't care if the Parrots were destroyed in the temple games, they would've done MUCH better than fucking Jason and Dana here. Jason was a lost cause, (I can't believe people defend him), and Dana was a hosebeast. And no I do not just hate Jason and Dana just because of the cheating in the temple games. They could've won their temple games fair and square and I would still hate them. The Purple Parrots also get my support here. So it's definitely a yes from me too. :roll:

I wouldn't even say that the Purple Parrots were dominated in the temple games either. First off, I felt that it was an unfair advantage for Jason to be able to throw papers while his opponent fell off the horse. Second, the last temple game was really close until Dana beat Sharon by one pole. The temple games were not like Golden Chains or Empress Eugenie where the Purple Parrots got dominated. I hated this Red Jaguars team since day one and I can't believe anyone would defend Jason. I mean it is freakin Jason! The kid who backtracked from the Room of the Ancient Warriors because he didn't know where to go. What's next? Defending Nicholas from Madame Tussaud for moving so slow in the temple? :afro:

Too late, people already defend Nicholas. :afro: And you're right too, Jason DOES NOT deserve to be defended. But just because "oh, he assembled the monkey in quick time!" and "oh, me backtracked for two seconds!" boom, that automatically makes him an amazing player. Plus, didn't someone compare Jason to Tiffani once? Where Jason backtracks to the Chamber, just because ONE door doesn't open up. Yet Tiffani just tries the furthest back armor, all while staying in the same room. Remind me again how both those scenarios are the same again? I swear, people are just pulling random excuses out of their asses just to defend Jason. Both him and Dana were terrible player, and they DID NOT deserve to go to the temple. Even if it weren't for the cheating, I would still hate them. People need to stop assuming otherwise. I also agree that the Parrots weren't actually destroyed in the temple games. Since Jason cheated in 2/3 of his temple games. Regardless, should've been the Purple Parrots. :afro:

Yeah, they felt that Jason didn't get all the criticism he deserves or something like that. :afro: But I don't see how anyone could fine anything redeemable about him. Remind me again how Tiffani and Jason were alike? I am pretty sure that Tiffani didn't get turned around once. Sure, she tried all of the armors in the Room of the Ancient Warriors when she didn't need to. So did a lot of Season 3 contestants like Jeremy from War Fan. Does that make Jeremy on Jason's level? :afro: Tiffani was a solid contestant and did a lot of stuff better than Jason - made it back to the platform, didn't get turned around, and used the Dark Forest shortcut. Defending Jason and Dana is one of the most pathetic defenses I have ever seen here. Although the Bifocal Monocle one still tops it though. :afro:

Exactly. Tiffani never got turned around at all. The only "backtracking" she even did was retrying the back most armor, which DID open the door to the Shrine. What does Jason do? Backtracks back to the chamber for NO reason, all because one armor wouldn't open up the door. I swear, there were some points where I could actually see why Dana was shouting at him. So Jason and Tiffani were not similar or comparable in the least bit. And assembling the monkey in quick time is completely irrelevant to me. Mike from Thornwood Gavel assembled the monkey literally, in record time. But do you see anyone praising him for it? No, you don't. Just because someone assembles the monkey in respectable time, doesn't automatically mean you're a great player. Jason was a lost cause, no matter what way you slice it. :afro:

I am enjoying the discussions we are having in this topic, so I want to move onto the next run. I think we can agree that the Purple Parrots deserved to go to the temple over Jason and Dana in Smashed Printing Plate. :afro:

Next up is "The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein". This episode featured another temple game sweep of the Purple Parrots, this time by the Barracudas. Inside the temple, Keith and Rachel struggled with a very tough layout they required them to enter every room. They were still an average team despite the temple loss. Would Danielle and James do better than the Blue Barrucadas in the temple? Temple run summary below:
