This is a more personal one, but the first episode I added to TKS was Lawrence of Arabia's headdress, before I knew it was also the first episode ever aired.

Shane (The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba) and James (Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth) co-hold the record for the most room objectives completed, with 9. Coincidentally, they were both Green Monkeys.

The two Temple Runs where only four rooms were entered were both in Layout II.

The first and last episodes ever produced were both Red Jaguars runs and featured a score of 2-1? at the Temple Games.

Dunno if this counts, but The Blue Barracudas from "The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata" broke their gong, and then, almost as if they were being punished, they got disqualified. XD

You can see during the Moat crossing when the spotter sends the Silver Snakes back wrongly.

---

In Season 1, the Red Jaguars were first in the moat a whopping twelve times.  The Purple Parrots were only first one time.

In Season 1, the most common Steps combination was RED-BLUE-GREEN-SILVER, with seven appearances.  RED-GREEN-PURPLE-SILVER, BLUE-GREEN-ORANGE-SILVER, and BLUE-ORANGE-PURPLE-SILVER never occurred.

Silver progressed from the Steps 19 times, Red 18 times, Blue 16 times, and Green, Orange, and Purple each 9 times.

The most common Temple Games matchup was RED-SILVER, appearing six times.  GREEN-PURPLE never happened.

Neither Green, Orange, nor Purple won the Temple Games with only one Pendant that season.

Every team had at least one one-Pendant Temple Run, but three of the teams (Red Jaguars, Green Monkeys, Purple Parrots) only went to the Temple with a single Pendant once.  The Red Jaguars' only one-Pendant run was in Season 1, the Green Monkeys' only one-Pendant run was in Season 2 and the Purple Parrots' only one-Pendant run was in Season 3.

Every season had one production day where there were three wins out of four episodes, but Season 2 was the only one where this day was not the last day of taping (rather, it was the fourth), and this production day for Season 2 was the only one of this kind where the unsuccessful Temple Run didn't even feature an artifact grab.

Season 2, Production Day B.  The Temple Games results for the four episodes are cyclical: the Orange Iguanas beat the Blue Barracudas in "The Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman," the Blue Barracudas beat the Purple Parrots in "The Diary of Dr. Livingstone," the Purple Parrots beat the Red Jaguars in "The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief" and the Red Jaguars beat the Orange Iguanas in "The Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith." (Credit goes to notundercovercop327 for pointing this out)

Season 2, Production Day A versus Season 1, Layout IV.  Four Temple Games rounds were taped on each of these days? three featured the same team winning (Blue Barracudas for Layout IV, Orange Iguanas for Season 2 Day A), and the fourth episode for each day featured the Silver Snakes winning.

In every season, one team made it to the Temple for at least a quarter of the season's episodes.  In Season 1 this was the Silver Snakes, with 11 appearances; in Season 2, the Orange Iguanas, with 10 appearances; in Season 3, the Green Monkeys, with 15 appearances.

In every season, at least one team recorded zero Temple victories.  In Season 1, no wins were achieved by the Orange Iguanas or the Purple Parrots; in Season 2, no wins were achieved by the Red Jaguars; in Season 3, no wins were achieved by the Blue Barracudas.

Exactly. :P

The fifth layouts of the first two seasons were the only two layouts where five out of six teams went to the temple (see the overuse of "5" here, folks? :lol:)

*BUMP*

Here's some more I came up with:

- Silver advanced 5/6 times when Red-Blue-Orange-Silver occurred. The only episode (out of that combination) where they go to the temple is "The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen."
- Blue failed to advance from two different Steps of Knowledge pairs. Those being Red-Blue-Orange-Silver, and Blue-Orange-Purple-Silver.
- All the Blue-Orange-Purple-Silver episodes had artifacts at least reached. Also, Purple always advanced from this combination.
- Green always advanced from Blue-Green-Orange-Purple. They went to the temple three times when this pair happened, all from Season 3.
- The first triple capture, "Elizabeth the First's Golden Ship" was the quickest loss in the show's history. The last triple capture, "The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb," was the slowest loss ever.
- On the "Metal Beard" filming day, 3/4 episodes had a Middle Eastern theme. And all three of those episodes featured the Green Monkeys at least advancing to the temple games.
- On the "Stone Head" filming day, 3/4 episodes featured Green vs. Orange in the temple games. Those were the only three episodes to feature that particular match up in Season 2.
- The only two victories that featured solo victories pulled off with 2 pendants were "The Belly Button of Buddha" and "The Milk Bucket of Freydis." Not only that, but both were Observatory artifacts, female solo victories, and had identical paths.

Cool topic, I can't believe I never saw it before.  :o Here is some more I want to add:

- There were four episodes on the "impossible layout day": Ivan the Terrible -> Mary Shelley -> William Tell -> Hans Holbein
-- All four episodes contained teams entering two pendants.
-- Mary Shelley and William Tell featured their respective teams winning the temple games 2-0.5, both beating the Silver Snakes, and both using the EXACT same temple games.
-- Ivan the Terrible and Hans Holbein featured similar temple games with both of these teams sweeping the temple games.

- The Silver Snakes and Blue Barracudas were the only team to enter the temple in S1L4. 2/4 of those matchups were Blue/Silver temple games themselves. (Moccasins and Great Seal).
-- All four teams in S1L2 entered the temple with 1.5 pendants.

- The last production day of each season had all the teams reaching their artifacts.
-- Each production day featured a temple game sweep for one episode that day: Lawrence of Arabia, Dolley Madison, and Empress Eugenie.

- All four bottom of the central shaft runs in S3 had the teams going to the temple with 2 pendants.
-- In Empress Eugenie, Queen Boadicea, and Red Sash, it was the middle painting that opened the room to the artifact. The Smashed Printing Plate team never entered the Jester's Court.

- Every room that held only one artifact on the show was never brought out of the temple in time.

WRONG. John Sutter was 2 pendants.

I'm pretty sure that "Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack" was the only Shrine run that had the team start out in the Center of the Rooms; all other Shrine runs had teams first enter either the bottom of the central shaft or the Observatory space.

WRONG. John Sutter was 2 pendants.

Whoops, I meant S1L4 (Lost Logbooks, Moccasins, Great Seal, and Amelia Earhart). All of the teams entered the temple that day with 1.5 pendants. S1L2 because both Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Lost Hammer featured two pendants. ;)

I'm pretty sure that "Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack" was the only Shrine run that had the team start out in the Center of the Rooms; all other Shrine runs had teams first enter either the bottom of the central shaft or the Observatory space.

Close, but Jason from Icarus entered the Room of the Mandarin Hand from the Pit first also in his run. ;)

Here are more:

- The entire S1L2 day consisted of either a Lost artifact (Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Lost Hammer) or Golden artifact (Golden Cricket Cage and Golden Ship)
-- Cricket Cage and Golden Ship featured 1.5 pendant runs while Lost Hammer and Map to the Lost Gold Mine featured two pendants.
-- Both Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Lost Hammer also had an episode dedicated to a historical figure named "John".

- The only two temple runs of S1L1 (Galileo's Cannonball an Dead Man's Hand) had the artifacts located in the Mine Shaft. Golden Cup doesn't count because the temple run for that episode was taped in S1L5.

- There were four triple captures in S3 (Lost Taj Mahal Turban, Mummified Hand, Robert the Bruce, and Useless Map.) Both Lost Taj Mahal Turban/Egyptian King were taped on the same day and Useless Map/Robert the Bruce were taped on the same day.

- The last production day of S2L2 (Benjamin Franklin, Atocha, Emiliano Zapata, and Annie Taylor) is the only production day to feature all tiebreakers. The only run that day that wasn't a 1 pendant run was "Emiliano Zapata".

- One I forgot to mention was that 3/4 bottom of the central shaft runs in S3 were temple game sweeps. Tokugawa was the only one where the temple team didn't sweep the temple games.

- All three times the half-pendant was located in the Pit in S3, it was from a Green Monkeys run (Lost Taj Mahal Turban, Robert the Bruce, and Sforza).

- Both "Broken" artifacts located in the Shrine (Broken Trident and Broken Wing) both resulted in failed escapes even though the artifact was grabbed more than 50 seconds in both episodes. :roll:

- The Green Monkeys share a lot of episodes the episode titles share a certain word in common that no other episode shares. This includes:
-- Very Tall Turban and Lost Taj Mahal Turban (both Turbans)
-- Imperial Purple Robe and Imperial Wizard (both Imperial)
-- Empress Eugenie and Empress Theodora (Both Empresses)
-- Dried Apple Half and Dried Ear of Corn (both Dried)
-- Dried Apple Half and Applewood Amulet (both Apple artifacts)
-- William Tell and William the Conqueror (both first names William)

That is enough for now. :P

That would be very true. And going off of that:

"Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack" and "Broken Wing of Icarus" were the only two Shrine runs in which the contestant(s) entered the inner temple via the Center of the Rooms space. Both of the runs saw the frontrunner unnecessarily backtrack into the Observatory space.

Both teams from those episodes beat the Purple Parrots in the temple games as well.

Here's another coincidence regarding the bottom central shaft: None of the S1 and S2 bottom central shaft runs were pulled off with 2 pendants. Yet all the S3 bottom central shaft runs were all 2 pendant runs.
