Hey, I got an idea. How about we all come up with our own top 50 fails of Legends? They don't have to be from the temple runs. It can be anything and anyone, from player failures to Kirk Fogg failures. If top 50 is too much, then you can reduce the number. I say come up with the fails first, then rank them. The first one you come up with might not be #1. Heck, if you can come up with more than 50 failures, then it might not even rank in the top 50. This sounds like a huge project, but it might work.

I can come up with plenty of fails, but ranking them might be a hassle.

Also, if we do plan on making a big YouTube video or separate videos out of this, then how are we going to get the footage? I originally had something that could record sounds/music and videos on my laptop, but that's what caused my computer to get a virus. Would anyone else be willing to try this?

Okay, I just compiled a huge list of fails and I was able to come up with 75 fails. 75! Most of them were in the temple run, but not all of them. Should I post the list that I came up with? If so, then maybe we can add onto it. I didn't rank anything, just compiled.

Thanks everyone for your contribution. In response to PP319's question, I plan on breaking down the videos into different numbers like "41-50", "31-40", etc. This way I don't have one big ass video that will take forever to load for other users and make the uploading process more smoother. Now the next step is to rank the actual epic fail moments.

And I appreciate the contributions in this topic too. I think I have enough now to try and make a top 50. For your list PP319, I glanced over them and agree with almost all of them. I don't think some should be considered epic fails like Jennifer missing the Blue Pearl or Tony from "The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid" exit plan. In Jennifer's case, I don't think it was that big of an epic fail for her to miss the Blue Pearl, even though she didn't need to use a dramatic dive at all. I would consider "The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora" to be a bigger fail due to the elevator stopping when Josh was mere inches from the Robe.

Overall, I want to start to get working on the biggest epic fails.  :mrred:

The reason the elevator stopped in Imperial Purple Robe is because Josh let go of the buttons on the elevator. I consider close encounters where the item was just missed to be fails, like the Blue Pearl run. If you think about it, it was a failure to grab the object at the last moment. I guess you can add Tess' close encounter with the Dried Ear of Corn to my list as well.

So with the list I put together, should we try to rank everything from that list? We can try it and then decide whether we want to make a set of YouTube videos for the top 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 fails. I think we should all come together and make this happen the best to our ability.

When ranking them, I think the bigger fails should be higher up the list like ones that have an impact on the team's chances at getting to the temple or a temple win. Fails like the Silver Snakes in "Little John", "AMBASSADOR!" "AMBASSADOR!", and Kimberly dropping the Trident. I am starting with a ranking for 41-50, so hopefully I can make a list by tomorrow. ;)

Can we all agree that John and Tia's temple performance is the #1 fail?

No doubt in my mind that would be number one. How a team gets lost in rooms like the Throne Room and Heart Room and wastes all three minutes there always baffled my mind. I mean there were plenty of teams with stupid players, but the Silver Snakes in that episode took stupidity to a new level. I would've seriously burned this episode and start from scratch. Nothing can top this suckfest.

And at the moment I am working on a list for 46-50. Maybe I will post it here a little later. ;)

Not sure if this counts, but in "The Belly Button of Buddha", the male from the Purple Parrots is crossing the moat on the raft...and somehow fails.  All four teams have clocked in, but the first player who only has to paddle with his hands across the moat on a raft somehow doesn't make it over.

Oh yeah, I remember that. It certainly made the Purple Parrots look bad in that episode. I'd consider that a pretty big fail, maybe we could add other poor teams who didn't make it past the moat.

Biggest Legends fails? I'm sure you can add a few Fogg-ups to that list.
