Coming in at #7 is "The Secret Battle Plan of Nathan Hale".  Though this run was ended early and Christina was a dolt for passing up the half Pendant, James didn't screw up that badly during his time in the Temple.  Plus, I think it's slightly more watchable than the six other runs left on the list...

My second save of the day goes to The Secret Battle Plan of Nathan Hale. This was one of the quickest losses in the show's history because the second runner missed the obvious half pendant. Now, if she did find the half pendant, I think she would've come close to grabbing the battle plan.

I think that run deserves to be saved before the rest of the garbage left on that list.

Coming in #6 is The Lost Lion Tail of Little John. No way a PP run is going to be in the top 5. Besides, it's more watchable than the other five runs left. Marie wasn't bad. She should've tried pulling the last Crypt book (although it might not have mattered). Then that Ledges temple guard was a complete asshole for pulling her feet like that. :x She made up good time in the Laser Light Room after struggling with the Rock Quarry. Then Claude happened. He was WAY too slow. At least he found the other half pendant. If this team wasn't super slow, they would've gotten the tail.

#5 is John Henry's Lost Hammer.  Yet another contestant named Kim who had absolutely no clue what to do.  When Billy came in, it started to look hopeful, but then he struggled and later gave up climbing upwards from the Spider's Lair.  Had he not done that, this could have been a win.  The point is, they did much better than the other ones left.

Since I am going to be gone the rest of the night, I will place my last vote now. The number four spot will go to "The Keys to the Alhambra". This is by far one of the worst losses of the entire show. But, at least Steve was a good contestant and laid out a great path for Lisa. Lisa was completely stupid and did not many any progress in the temple after Steve was taken out. But to her defense though, she did USE the key in the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. I am not sure why all the golden doors are open when she enters the room though. Perhaps this added to her confusion?

I might as well make one more vote before the final results. I will give the #3 spot to, "Blackbeard's Treasure Map." It is easily one of the most pathetic losses in the shows history. And in edition the epitome of "Why you should never send the slow witted player in first." The only thing that stops in from Top 2 is that it did seem like kind of a hard layout. I know Sabrina didn't press the actuator hard enough in the Wheel Room, but still. For all we know, it would have been locked anyways. Either way, it's still a terrible solo run.

So now that we have 2 runs remaining, I guess we're gonna vote on it again. Like we did last time, voting until a run gets 3 points.

If I'm allowed to make a vote for the top 2, my vote for worst temple loss goes to The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan.

One-Eyed Jack was bad, but Cage of Khan easily takes the cake for worst temple loss. If anyone says One-Eyed Jack was a worse loss than Khan, then I'll have to find where you live.

I also vote for "The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan".  Even for curious budding Legends fans, I highly recommend that you do NOT...repeat...NOT look this run up and watch it.  Hell, if you HAVE watched it in your lifetime, find some way to erase your memory of it.  This run is so bad that it makes "One-Eyed Jack" look like "Apanuugpak".  Jon and Tia were deplorable players, who are a disgrace to the Silver Snakes, to the show, and to humankind in general.

I think I've made my point. :P

"The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan" gets my vote for this by a land slide. This run is such an abomination to the entire series and no run can even top this one. I remember when I watched this run for the first time and was stunned on how BOTH contestants can be this bad in the temple. While a handful of season one contestants were not the brightest or fastest on the show, John and Tia somehow managed to take stupidity to a new level.

Before the run even starts, John seems so "pumped" up. Yet he spends most of his time wandering through the Cave of Sighs. And when he starts to make progress, he gets stuck in the THRONE ROOM (which its objective consists  of sitting on an enormous chair), and he retraces BACK to where he started when one of the doors don't unlock. Hello? Did it ever occur to him that going back to the start probably wouldn't do him any good? I mean there are all these other doors in the Wall Climb, and you try the one that leads you back to the start?

It was such a relief to see him taken out of the Heart Room. But wait, the agony isn't even over. Tia just makes this run even more cringe worthy and was possibly worser than John. I mean she LITERALLY does not make any progress in the temple and gets stuck in the Heart Room. She spends the rest of her run pressing locked doors until she finally decides to dangle from a rope in the Pit.

I know I overdid it with the whole summary, but these two wholeheartedly deserve it. Bifocal Monocle is no doubt the worst run of season three and I am glad that it finished in second, but it has NOTHING on Cricket Cage. So my vote goes to Cricket Cage.

Not that it really matters, since the decision has already been made. But okay, just for the hell of it. :lol:

#106: The Golden Cricket Cage Of Khan - 5 Votes
#301: The Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack - 0 Votes

I think it's pretty obvious that Cricket Cage is gonna get my vote. It is easily the worst temple run of the series and a COMPLETE embarrassment to the show. Jon and Tia were heinously bad players and should not have had ANY hope of advancing to the temple. Any team would have been better than them, no doubt about it. I always wonder how much better the Purple Parrots would have done. If only they didn't come up short in the temple games. :roll:

So yeah, The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan is the worst temple run ever, period.
