I think we should do something special for The Golden Earring and The Discarded Seal instead of just having one person decide who gets first and second. I say whoever gets to three votes for first place first is the winner. What do you guys think? TRJ (he started this topic), would you approve of this or do you have a better idea?

I like this idea. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on which one is the best lost. A poll will allow everyone to voice our opinions and get a good idea on which one is preferred.  :mrgreen:

I will start by giving one vote to "The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan".  These two are incredibly tough to decide between.  "The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible" had a better team and a tougher layout, but ultimately I think "The Golden Earring" was much more exciting to watch.

I have to give this to "The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible" since both players were basically flawless in the temple, but failed to acquire the artifact due to an impossible layout. I mean they did everything right including running fast, taking all the necessary shortcuts, and Travis even made it back to the platform in the Pit.

But I have to say "Henry Morgan" comes very close to being one of my favorite losses. You just gotta love how Shem completes the Observatory objective in four seconds and grabs the earring with two seconds remaining. Both him and Ashley are excited despite not getting the grand prize. But the one thing that turned me off from this run was Ashley putting the key back into the tree and going into the Mine Shaft to be taken out. But I guess that adds to the lost.  :mrgreen:

So I guess we're using the method I suggested? First to three wins?

My vote goes to The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible. I think this is my favorite episode where the item wasn't grabbed. Both players were great, but because of the extremely difficult layout, they didn't get to the seal. The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan was a great run too, but I like The Discarded Seal run more.

Votes to win:
#234: The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan - 1
#317: The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible - 2

Top 25:
25 - #306: The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea
24 - #118: Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth
23 - #226: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
22 - #135: Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat

I'm also voting for The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible. Travis and Elisa were a flawless team in the temple. They were fast, never hesitated, always took shortcuts, and were un phased by temple guards. But it was that one room away temple guard that prevented a last second grab from the team. This whole temple run was exciting from start to finish, and this team deserved better fate.

The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan was an exciting loss too. I love Ashley and Shem's enthusiasm when time was up. They were so excited despite only grabbing the earring at the last second. Furthermore, both players were fast and knew what they were doing. The reason I'm not voting for that one though, is because the team didn't take many shortcuts. Ashley found the key in the Dark Forest, but she didn't even try to use it. Had she gone straight up to the shrine, it would have been a solo victory. And the shrine/forest door does open after Shem completes the monkey. This team deserved better fate too, but I vote for Discarded Seal instead. So with the "first vote to 3 wins" rule, I guess Discarded Seal wins.

Votes to win:
#234: The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan - 1
#317: The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible - 3

Top 25:
25 - #306: The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea
24 - #118: Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth
23 - #226: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask
22 - #135: Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat
21 - #116: Henry VIII's Great Seal
20 - #127: The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary
19 - #330: The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King

With the winner now decided, should we start the "worst loss ever" list?

That would be a good idea. Even though I think I know who will win that one, I am more interesting in the top 25 ranked worst losses.   :mrgreen:

Well, if you'd like to start it, be my guest. We might as well have a "worst non win" list, since we're done with this list. ;)

25 - #306: The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea - not top 25 material

24 - #118: Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth - not top 25 material

23 - #226: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask - not 25 material

22 - #135: Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat - good

21 - #116: Henry VIII's Great Seal - higher

20 - #127: The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary - higher

19 - #330: The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King - lower

18 - #215: The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin - higher

17 - #334: The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd - much lower

16 - #129: The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa - higher

15 - #325: The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu - lower

14 - #211: The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora - higher

13 - #333: The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior - higher

12 - #208: The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief - a little lower

11 - #238: The Broken Wing of Icarus - lower (I found it to be a really pathetic loss. Jason was a moron in the temple and his exit plan was atrocious, which made the ending frustrating rather than exciting.)

10 - #132: King Tut's Cobra Staff - lower

9 - #133: The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl - a little higher (seriously, how can you not remember Jennifer's last second grab to get the pearl?

8 - #228: The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon - a little lower

7 - #209: The Mush Pot Hat of Johnny Appleseed - good

6 - #240: The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl - higher

5- #338: The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie - one lower

4- #231: The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley - A little lower (its quite possibly my favorite Purple Parrot teams to enter the temple and they were fun to watch but the run wasn't that exciting.)

3- #322: The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea - Good

2- #234: The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan  - Good

1- #317: The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible - Good

Seriously, why isn't the Pendant of Kamehameha in the top 25? It was by far one of the most memorable losses on the show and in season one. Sure, the temple guard capture would've been inevitable for the team. But the whole suspense of the run along with the unusual temple guard capture would've ranked around 12-15 for me for this run.

You know what's really odd? Kamehameha finished lower than Dried Ear of Corn and Gordian Knot! :shock:

Well, here are my opinions on the list:

25 - #306: The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea (Not Top 25 matieral. So boring).

24 - #118: Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth (Not 25 material, though it was a hard layout).

23 - #226: The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask (Maybe just missing Top 25 for me).

22 - #135: Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat (Good).

21 - #116: Henry VIII's Great Seal (Higher).

20 - #127: The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary (Higher).

19 - #330: The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King (Lower).

18 - #215: The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin (Lower).

13 - #333: The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior (Fine as is).

12 - #208: The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief (Maybe a tad lower).

11 - #238: The Broken Wing of Icarus (Fine as is, as I find it a tad frustrating. But it has that nostalgic factor since it was one of the first Season 2 episodes I ever saw).

10 - #132: King Tut's Cobra Staff (Maybe a tad lower).

9 - #133: The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl (Definitely higher).

8 - #228: The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon (Fine as is).

7 - #209: The Mush Pot Hat of Johnny Appleseed (Fine as is).

6 - #240: The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl (A tad higher).
