Alright, here are my stats for the Jester's Court. I only did Season 2 so far, and I'll cover Season 3 later. ;)

EpisodePlayerTotal Time
The Silk Sash of MulanSteven14 seconds
The Golden Goblet of Attila the HunRachelle22 seconds
The Leopard Skin Cloak of Annie OakleyChandra15 seconds
The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the KidTony16 seconds
The Golden Pepperoni of Catherine de MediciAqila10 seconds
The Golden Earring of Henry MorganAshley20 seconds
The Milk Bucket of FreydisTarrah6 seconds
The Missing Weather Maps of Charles LindberghNick4 seconds
The Broken Wing of IcarusJason12 seconds
The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian GirlKristen9 seconds

Only 10 contestants completed the Jester's Court objective in Season 2. And every team except the Orange Iguanas got a chance to complete it. I timed it from the moment they entered the room, until the room went dark. I hope that's accurate enough. And coincidentally, the only two teams to not complete the Jester's Court in Season 2 were Nostradamus and Dolley Madison. Both Orange Iguana runs and filmed the same day. :lol: I'll post Season 3's results later. Thoughts? ;)

So many Purple Parrots  :mrpurple: I'm surprised that this room had longer completion times than the Observatory  :shock: And I'm slightly shocked by Kristen's time because I thought she had completed it quicker. Also, Nick was more of a beast than I thought  :lol:

Yeah, literally all the S2L4 and first day of S2L5 temple runs had players completing the objective. Good to see the Purple Parrots are so well represented too. None of which had any slow time. :mrpurple: And yeah, Kristen's completion was a fast one. She got the middle painting to work right on the first try. Nick was especially a beast in that room. :shock: Seriously, he goes in, tries the first painting, and bam he's done. But then again, most of the time this room was luck based. So it does explain some of the quick times. ;)

I am surprised that Kristen didn't have the fastest completion also. I mean the one thing that sticks out about her temple run was how she got her first painting on her first try. I forgot about Nick's fast completion too! Seriously, that kid was a beast in the temple. He made it to his sixth room in under a minute. Of course, we all know what happened after that. :roll: I guess the Priceless Portrait run sticks out more than the Charles Lindbergh one because it was much more exciting and memorable.  :mrsilver:

Also, I am very surprise at how fast Tarrah's time was. Like I said in the past, Tarrah made great time in the temple. It was just that she moved slow through the temple. And even then, she grabbed the Milk Bucket with 34 seconds left. This is why I can see her win the Ahmed Baba run even if she makes the same mistake as Shane.

And look at Aqila's time too. Once again, she is a player that gets way too much criticism. She handled most of her temple rooms just fine. It was the last three seconds of her run that make her look bad.

Tarrah tried the first painting, and it worked. That's why she got it in fast time. Same with Aqila, and I also agree that she gets way too much criticism. I don't know, do you think I should have started time when the player went to the first painting? If that's the case, that would shave off only two seconds at most. Maybe I should go back and do a rewatch before moving on to Season 3.

I'm interested in seeing how the King's Storeroom turns out, since it was luck based as well.

Definitely luck and speed based. So frustrating when players just take their time in that room. Like, there are large vases sitting here asking you to smash them, what are you doing?!?!

Almost all of the rooms of the temple were luck-based in some way. A lot of rooms required skills too, but luck also placed an element in compelting the room. Here is the only rooms that weren't luck-based at all:

- Shrine of the Silver Monkey
- Observatory (Stone Column)
- Chamber of the Sacred Markers
- Lightning Room
- Medusa's Lair
- Room of the Mandarin Hand

Holes of Python, Swamp, Spider's Lair, Ledges, Cave of Sighs, Rock Quarry, Troubled Bridge, those are all physical rooms. Not much in the way of luck involved.

Yeah, I was thinking about those rooms too. I wasn't sure if they should be added to the list because they really had no actuators. But I think we can modify the list to include those rooms.

Objective Rooms with No Luck
- Shrine of the Silver Monkey
- Observatory (Stone Column)
- Chamber of the Sacred Markers
- Lightning Room
- Medusa's Lair
- Room of the Mandarin Hand
- Rock Quarry

** means that the frontrunner was taken out of the temple after smashing a pot and their time was included in the calculation. I started counting time when a pot was smashed. If the frontrunner smashed a pot and was taken after, I continued to count when the 2nd runner touched a pot. Aqila kinda got gypped because she grabbed a pot right before a temple guard popped out, and when he did she accidentally smash the pot and then walked around the room for 15 seconds hitting actuators before she continued to attempt to complete the objective.

Seems like for the most part players completed this objective at a reasonable pace. Shem took a while but other than that and Aqila's unfortunate circumstances, pretty solid from everybody.

It is very surprising indeed to see Shem have a long King's Storeroom completion time. Although it really wasn't his fault entirely. He didn't find the key until he smashed the third pot and it was the third pedestal that unlocked all the doors for him. It wasn't that he was struggling with the objective, he just had bad luck with his choices.

And good Lord at Aqila's time! Honestly, the temple guard encounters messed up some of the players times in certain rooms. The same thing happened in the Shrine for some runs where the temple guard takes up a few seconds while the teams assemble the Silver Monkey. Not only does it take them some time to give them the Pendant, but it also frazzles them a little bit too. I think this is what happened to Aqila in this room.

Overall, these were very informative stats like the other ones. It looks like most contestants didn't spend much time in it. At the end of the day though, this room was pretty much the luck of the draw for the contestants. Some got lucky where it worked on the first couple of guesses. Some were unfortunate like Shem where their last guess was the correct one. Luckily, Season 3 made it a little easier where they could all just knock the pots in the middle. (I still like the S2 version much better though.)
