I voted no just because of the difficulty of the layout.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

Yeah, no way was anyone gonna win with that layout. Even if either team had taken more direct routes, it still would've been a loss. Regardless, the Purple Parrots were just a terrible team all episode. They barely scraped by each round, performed embarrassingly bad in the temple games, and Jill looked like she didn't want to be there. If you're gonna look like you don't want to be on the show, then don't expect me to take you seriously. If the Purple Parrots had made it to the temple instead, they would've performed very badly. They would've moved much too slowly, and wouldn't have made it anywhere near the artifact. Truth be told, neither team in this episode deserved to go the temple. Which is why this Purple Parrot team gets zero support from me. This whole episode in general was just bad. :roll:

Was this the episode with the Purple Parrot girl who had no enthusiasm at all? I can never remember that if she is from this episode or Nzinga. I do remember her sucking in her temple game and it looked like she wasn't even trying. If she went into the temple, it is possible that she does a WORSE job than Rachelle. I think I am going to watch the episode again and judge the Purple Parrot team.Since I hardly remember this episode all. When I come back later, I will decide whether to keep my vote or not?

Also, I do think this layout could've been won if you had a fast team like Lucky Medallion or Applewood Amulet. The teams had to blaze through the temple and take all the shortest paths possible. Well, maybe not a win but a failed escape at best.

Yes this is the one with the unenthusiastic Purple Parrot girl. Which is why I voted against this team.

For the time being, I am keeping my vote in favor of the Parrots for Attila the Hun. In the future though, I might change it even though I think both teams were about on the same level talent wise. So it looks like we are undecided whether the Purple Parrots should go to the temple or not in this episode!

Next up is "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl".  :mrsilver: This episode featured two moat rejects from earlier episodes facing it off in the temple games. Plus, Janet and Chris of the Purple Parrots were the team eliminated at the moat in Empress Theodora and were given a second chance. In the temple, the Silver Snakes were close to bringing out a bottom of the central shaft artifact but failed. Would Janet and Chris do better than Jim and Kristen? Temple layout diagram below:

I voted against the Purple Parrots in Polynesian Girl. Janet and Chris were actually a pretty good team and I am glad that the producers gave them a second chance after getting robbed in Empress Theodora. But Jim and Kristen were also a strong team too and deserved their temple appearance. Even though they should've won, they were a strong team and came the closest to a bottom of the central shaft win! If they reversed player orders, they would've won! As I mentioned I liked the Purple Parrots in this episode and they might've won, but at the end of the day Kristen and Jim were a great team too and they had an equal chance of being successful too. ;)

Voted no. Jim and Kristen were the stronger team, and the Parrots completely bombed the last temple game.

EDIT: Also, you're not gonna break the tie for the Golden Goblet poll?

And PS, you forgot Dolley Madison. Which came before Priceless Portrait.

And Janet and Chris were originally in Applewood Amulet, not Imperial Robe (that was Jim and Kristen). ;)

Yeah, Janet and Chris were from Applewood Amulet, NOT Empress Theodora. You put that down twice. I know they were both previous episode rejects, but losing at the moat and losing at the steps are two completely different things. ;)

I definitely meant Emiliano Zapata, not Purple Robe. :oops: Not only that, but it seems that I missed Dolley Madison also.  I am going to cover that next. Even though Brent hasn't voted yet, I will let him voice his opinion on Polynesian Girl next time he comes in. ;) And we all agree that Jim and Kristen deserve their temple appearance.  :mrsilver:

Next up is "The Bonnet of Dolley Madison". In this run, Ashlie and Matt managed to grab the artifact but failed to escape with it because of some glaring mistakes. Would Jessica and Dwayne do better than the Purple Parrots? Summary of run below:

I voted no for the Purple Parrots in Dolley Madison. Even though the temple run was riddled with mistakes, Ashlie and Matt were a strong team all day and they deserved their temple appearance. After all, they swept the Purple Parrots in the temple games. Even inside the temple they were a strong team, but Ashlie's mistake in the Dark Forest cost them. But like Jim and Kristen, they were one of those teams that were strong and would've won if they switched player orders. So I think the Orange Iguanas deserved their temple appearance during this run. ;)

No. The Parrots got destroyed in the temple games. So thus, I have no faith in them. The Orange Iguanas were better. Next. :roll:

It looks like we agree that the Purple Parrots in Dolley Madison did not deserve to go to the temple. ;)

Next up is probably the most tragic Purple Parrot temple team. Levi and Candace took the Green Monkeys down to the tiebreaker, but lost on the easiest question ever. The Green Monkeys then had a lot of trouble in the temple and couldn't get past the bottom floor with a very tough layout. Would Zac's younger brother Levi and Candace do better than Noelle and Pat?
