Contestant Elimination: Boys' Temple Runs

So Gator is the champion. Didn't see that one coming, I felt Zac had it for sure. I'll leave this topic open for a little while longer in case anyone wants to tie up loose ends or such.
Crazy, but that's how it goes.

So now that the list is done, what would you guys agree & disagree on that list. I honestly thought Zac should have been higher and Joel too.

Personally I thought joel deserved the win because he was probably the fastest contest ever and he took the right path. He only made one mistake which is understandable. Personally i like runs where someone did a great job early on and it helped them out when they got caught in a jam later on.

I wouldn't've put him that high since most of the lower-floor rooms were "hit the actuator" and he took a long time on the monkey, I think about 30 seconds (I'll recheck the tape tomorrow if I think of it.)

Ledges was a crawling one, which he could've gotten lost in which he was stupid. Rock Quarry had an objective. Laser Light Room had an objective. Swamp was hit the actuator, but he had an amazing leap across from the entrance. Dark Forest was run into the wall, but he did avoid a Temple Guard. Mine Shaft was climb the ladder. I thought he was really good IMO, he should've been #1 IMO.

For me, I'd say:
#20 Quentin: He was okay, though #20 would be the right place for him
#19 Josh: I would have ranked him @ #25, he wasn't that great anyways
#18 Shawn: I would have ranked him lower too
#17 T.J. He's fine in the #17 position, nothing noteworthy about him
#16 David He's fine here.
#15 Jay Lower, he was fast but nothing special about him
#14 Nate Lower
#13 Robert He's fine @ #13
#12 Jon I'd rank him higher
#11 Jarrid He's fine in this spot
#10 Travis Maybe a little lower
#9 Kevin He's fine here
#8 Jason Lower...
#7 Shane Lower...
#6 Joel Maybe a little higher
#5 David A little lower
#4 Mitchell Lower, maybe just barely in the top 10
#3 Zac Turney I'd say he should have been #1, or maybe in 2nd place
#2 Ty Lower...
#1 Gator He's fine in this spot, even though I wanted Zac to win.

IMHO Mitchell was a good strategist (or whatever the word is,) I mean most Season 1 players would've tried the direct path but Mitchell took a route that was less likely to get him taken out.  Sure most of the rooms had "hit the actuator" objectives, but he made a good move avoiding the shortest path.
