There are 16 runs left. 15 will remain when I eliminate John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine (activate flame shield!). While this was a good win, just like Snakeskin Boots, the other wins (and even losses) have a little something that makes them more exciting to watch than this win. Really, I don't get the hype for this win. Don't get me wrong, it's a good win, but just not that exciting and memorable, even with Jennifer's fall at the end. Sorry, but this one is gone.

Man, "Map to the Lost Gold Mine" should've definitely been in the top 10.  I guess you have to have a Gator or Jarrid on your teamto be a quality win. :cry: :?

I guess I will kick off the top 15 with "The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta". Andrea was a solid contestant, but her run was probably the least memorable one left on the list. This win just doesn't stick out like the others.

Yeah, I don't understand the hate for John Sutter. Just because the players didn't move like Zac or Gator, doesn't mean it doesn't deserve recognition. This was Season 1 we're talking about. Where you're gonna see A LOT of "hit the actuator" rooms and easier wins. You can't expect that much THAT early in the shows run. It was a very exciting run, where both players were fast and knew exactly what they were doing. And it was especially memorable for Kirk's Fogg Ups and Jennifer's slip at the end. This run should have been Top 10, if not Top 5.

Anyways, the #14 spot goes to "Galileo's Cannonball." It was a great win, but I like the other runs better.

Now I know what it's like to be in Radman's shoes. XD And to be quite honest with you, I don't care. I'm sticking with my decision. Convince me that the John Sutter run is a great win. I want someone to TRY and convince me. Good luck with that. :roll:

Anyway, taking 13th place is The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan. This was a very solid loss, but to me, it just doesn't stand out with the remaining runs. I think 13th is a good stopping point for it.

You probably don't think its a good win because it was a season one run and is not on par with other highly praised wins like "Apanuugpak" and "Pirate Captain". But maybe you should look at this run from Damian and Jennifer's perspective. They were one of the earliest teams on a show that they probably had no idea how it worked. No one was familiar with that show at that time, not even Kirk or the production team. Just look at how terrible all those early season one runs are because those contestants had no clue how the temple worked. But Damian and Jennifer were both fast given the circumstance they faced. Damian was very fast in his little time in the temple and Jennifer moved just as fast. Sure, she kind of struggled in the Shrine and completed the Torch Room objective for no reason. But Jarrid ran into the Secret Password with less than a half pendant and Ty completes the Viper's Nest for no reason also, but no one seems to point those events out. At least the highly praised season two and three wins had past seasons to look at in order to get familiar with the show. Put Zac, Gator, or Jarrid in Damian and Jennifer's shoes and I bet they would not be as amazing as they were in their respective episodes. Likewise, Jennifer and Damian could probably have won in later season layouts. They were a strong team in the whole episode and I could argue that Jennifer was one of the better girls on the show if we take the whole episode into account. Everyone seems to think you have to be Gator or Zac in order to be a good team, which is why contestants like Missy are always given a hard time.

But I am not expecting to change your opinion at all. At the end of the day, its just a game and it isn't going to change my views on this run. A lot of people love this win too and its not just me and PPF. But the run is gone now so it can't be brought back.

BTW, I am not mad at you or anything. I just wanted to share my views on why I don't think its an overrated run. But I don't want to drag it on for to long so I can accept that its gone now.  ;)

Moving on, I am getting rid of "The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen". It was a good Purple Parrot effort and TJ + Randy moved fast, but Randy's exit plan could've been better instead of trying to enter every room. Its hard to compare this to the other runs left, but I think the other runs have something going for them.

Well said TRJ. Though I think Jarrid, Zac, and Gator still would have taken on a Season 1 or 2 temple no problem. ;)

Anyways, just missing the Top 10 is "The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible." While it was one of the best losses on the show, it is the last remaining loss still remaining. This layout was by far the hardest layout in the shows history, but a loss is a loss.

I think it's overrated because of so many "hit the actuator" rooms and other simple objectives. I think the only real objective that team completed was the Silver Monkey. However, I will admit that they did move fast and recovered from little mistakes very quickly. Good win, but too many simple objectives and rooms were completed in the John Sutter run. And no, I didn't eliminate that run because Damian and Jennifer weren't like Gator and Zac. Both Blue Barracuda players were fast.

Starting off the top 10 is The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata. It made the final two in the season 2 game, but I don't think it should have. It's a great win, but the team only entered six rooms and completed five objectives. Both players were really good, but Olivia-Emma could've doomed any chance of victory by missing the half pendant. They got a little lucky there. This was a solid win, but I think 10th place is a good stopping point for it.

Well, its not really their fault that the layout consisted of primarily hit the actuator rooms. That is just how most of the season one temple was set up. I think they would've fared well if it was Season 1 or Season 3. But like I said before, I will just move on. ;)

Out goes "The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus." It was a strong temple team, but the layout was probably the simplest one left on this list. Jason was clever though for using the leash to get the rope and both were excitable contestants.

I somewhat agree with that. Zac was the hero, but Mariam pretty much almost screwed up.
7 I'll give to The Milk Bucket of Freydis. Between it and the Headdress, this one wasn't as exciting a last second finish.

Wow, this is hard. They all deserve to win at this point. I hate to do this, but just missing the Top 5 is "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor." It is an amazing victory done by Missy and one of the most memorable in the shows history. But, out of all the runs remaining, this is the easiest run left.

I will take my second vote now and I will get rid of "The Jeweled-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great". Both Kris and Kristin were fast and exciting contestants in the temple. Kris made great progress in the little time he had and Kristin followed up on his path very well. But this temple layout was kind of simple also. I think #5 is a good stopping point for this run.

I'll make my second elimination of the day as well. This is hard, but taking 4th is The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain. I'm doing this to make up for Apanuugpak not winning the season 3 game. Also, I'm pretty sure I enjoyed the other three wins more. Great win, but I like the other wins more.

You know what? This is perfect - we have one run remaining from each season so instead of having the top two runs voted on, we will do the top 3. Same as before, we will leave the poll open for 24 hours. Whatever run has the most votes will be the winner. I will leave my vote anonymous as usual.

Would anyone be up for the worst temple run version of this game where we go by each season and determine the bottom 15 runs?
