Biggest fails on Legends?
« on: June 19, 2012, 11:36:42 PM »
What are some of the biggest fails in the entire show's three year tenure? I know we have talked about various Legends fails in other threads on the site, but not in one topic that is a collaboration with the biggest fails on the show. I am thinking about making a video that showcases the top 25 biggest Legends fails on the show. Obviously there are a lot of fails on the show, but I want to try and capture the biggest fails of all time.

Here are some of the biggest fails that I am thinking about:

- The entire "The Golden Cricket Cricket Cage" temple run.
- The Steps of Knowledge for "The Trojan Horseshoe" with all the bad answers.
- "Um, a Scaffolding?" from "The Missing Eye of David"
- Ron the cheater in "The Treasure of Anne Bonny"
- Kim's entire time in the temple in "The Missing Weather Maps of Charles Lindbergh"
- The Silver Snakes from "The Snow Cone of Mount Kilimanjaro"

Feel free to post more. ;)

Yeah, Larry is kind of an obvious answer that I can't believe that I missed. Which reminds me, here are a few more:

- Kristen in general in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl"
- Evan from "The Stolen Arm of Shiva" inability to assemble the monkey
- Kim not being best friends with actuators
- Veronica's struggling for her life to get out of the Pit
- The Green Monkey boy in "The Silk Sash of Mulan" temple games
- The Green Monkeys in "The Marble Armrest of Xerxes"
- The entire win for " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:"

-Kimberly in a losing solo effort after dropping the Trident

I say that any contestant with the name "Kim" making it to the temple will be featured in the video. ;)

And just a few more:

- Karisa and her incompetence in "The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh"
- "The Keys to the Alhambra" team fail in the tiebreaker and temple
- The legend for "The Plumed Headdress of Cosa Rara"
- The Silver Snakes in the temple games for "The Lost Lion Tail of Little John"
- Aqila and passing the pepperoni

- Kristen in general in "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl"
I disagree. Hesitation aside, she wasn't a bad player at all. At least she went back for her half pendant, and grabbed the artifact too. In the bottom of the central shaft no less. Sure, they would have won if she wasn't so hesitant. But I wouldn't necessarily call her an epic fail.

Oh crap, I meant Kristen from "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart".  :oops:

I don't know why I have gotten those two runs mixed up lately. But Kristen from "Amelia Earhart" is a big failure for being utterly stupid in simple rooms like the Dungeon and Treasure Room, and for not knowing how to climb the wall. Kristen from "Polynesian Girl" may have made a couple mistakes, but she definitely was not an epic fail. I guess I am starting to be as bad as when I mixed up "The Stone Head of the Evil King" Tony with "Billy the Kid" Tony.  :oops:

Here is a few more:
- Tony from "The Stone Head of the Evil King". You shouldn't take over a minute to complete a room and then he punches the King's Storeroom pots like a moron.
- Kelly from "The Jeweled Necklace of Montezuma" for failing to assemble the monkey, even when the piece is thrown bacl to her.
- "The War Fan of the 47 Ronin" mishap. The producers should've reran the whole run until they got it right! Poor Jeremy and Elise didn't do anything wrong in the temple.
- "The Pendant of Kamehameha" dungeon guard that reemerges as Tina is about the reach the artifact.

Lisa, anyone?
Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

While we're on the subject of Silver Snakes from Season 2, Christina passing up the half pendant is sort of a fail. I mean, it was signaled back to her, and she STILL missed it. Also, the "AMBASSADOR! AMBASSADOR!" tiebreaker question from "The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin" was a pretty big fail too. And the third temple guard from "The Missing Eye of David" is a good fail candidate too.

That guy that broke the gong in the Applewood Amulet episode.

EDIT: Which, after some thinking, is even more hilarious when you realize that gongs are an East Asian instrument especially prevalent in China.

Ryann from Harriet Tubman, anyone?

Also, TRJ, if we can come up with enough fails can the video be the top 50 fails? Just asking.

Yeah, a top 50 list sounds pretty cool to me. I would probably break the list down into several videos in that case. The only tough part would be to try and rank the fails by severity. And it would give me something to do this summer.

Here is a few more to throw out:

- Jeremy from " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:" hitting his gong too many times in the moat
- Jennifer getting owned by the boulder during the temple games in "The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud"
- The velociraptor answer in "Alexander and the Gordian Knot"
- Eddie's fall into the Pit in "The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth"
- Kelly from "The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean"
- Katie in the Chamber from "Clovis the First"
- Chris in "Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat"
- Renee missing the half pendant in "The Crown of Queen Nzinga"

Also, Tess in the Dark Forest in the Sojourner Truth run can be an idea as well.
