Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple "Best Legends win" tournament. In this tournament, we are trying to figure out the best win in the history of Legends. Every day I will hold a series of different matchups that will feature two wins on the show. Your job is to pick what episode you believe is the better of the two. After 24 hours. the episode with the most vote will proceed onto the next round.

"The Lucky Medallion of Atocha" beat "The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain" 5-1 in the previous matchup. That means "Atocha" moves onto the next round.

RULES:
- Each matchup will be open for a total of 24 hours. Once that window of time is up, the winner of the poll will be revealed.
- You are allowed to change your vote anytime during the 24 hour window. But the last vote before time is up is the one that will be final.
- All you have to simply do is select which of the two wins that you feel deserves to progress longer.
- You don't have to reveal your vote to the public, that is only optional. Your vote will be confidential until the 24 hour time frame is up.
- Please vote in the poll! The more people that vote, the more fun this tournament will be. All it takes is less than 30 seconds to vote.
- Have fun

***FEATURED MATCHUP***

"JOHN SUTTER AND THE MAP TO THE LOST GOLD MINE"

VS.

"THE ENORMOUS IRON NOSE RING OF BABE"

To me this vote is way too easy - "Map to the Lost Gold Mine". It is easily one of my most favorite team wins on the show. I know Damian and Jennifer didn't have to face  tough layout and they move kind of slow in other places, but it was a fun run to watch. Jennifer was one of the best girls on the show IMO and she was fun to watch in the temple. Plus, this was one of the few temple runs of season one where Kirk was excited and his commentary was decent. Plus, the ending is a classic.

As for "Iron Nose Ring"... it just doesn't impress me like it once did. Joel was fast and everything, but he did screw up big time on the top floor. He took a long time in the Shrine to assemble the monkey and he took the wrong way out of the temple. He was lucky that he had enough time to cover his mistake. If it wasn't for the easy temple layout and his fast speed on the bottom floor, perhaps this would've been a very close win. Or we would've had a loss similar to "Anne Bonny", "Sir Edmund Hillary", and "Johnny Appleseed".  :?

As a Barracudas fan, I had to go with "John Sutter" as well.  Joel's run seemed very impressive at first, but not so much in hindsight.  Jennifer, on the other hand, did a great job considering she had to work through a very long path and handle quite a few of the most time-consuming and difficult objectives in the season.  And, well, it was quirky enough to be even more memorable. :P

Which is why I don't see why other people compared this run to others like "The Trojan Horseshoe" and "Galileo's Cannonball". Yeah, their layouts were identical and everything, but Jennifer had to do more work in her run compared to those. After all, Damian only entered 2.5 rooms before being taken out (I don't really count him completing the Throne Room). Jennifer herself ran through seven or eight rooms to even reach the artifact. Her original plan was to get to the Tomb of the Ancient Kings via the bottom floor. But when she was forced into the Heart Room, she was able to complete a path that was out of her original plan and didn't mess up at all. If other season one contestants plans got messed up, they would run all over the temple. Not with her. Which is why I give her a lot of credit.

I'll also go with John Sutter. It was an amazing temple run and episode from beginning to end. How some people say Jennifer is overrated and that it's a bad, undeserved win is a mystery to me.

John Sutter, easily. I know, I've been convinced that this was in fact a very good run. :P

Joel in Iron Nose Ring was great too, but his layout was simple and he made the run look mediocre with his exit plan.

This is my first time taking part in this poll, so I hope nobody undergoes heart failure when they see an extra vote "mysteriously" added to the tally.  :)
