Chris from "Golden Jaguar" can go next. While he did move fast and made it far, he screwed up by going into the Heart Room and ruined his chance at a solo win. And he was lucky that Tracy was fast enough to cover his steps and make up for his mistakes. A good contestant shouldn't be one that ruins the team's chance at a win. Thus, he goes next.

Jennifer Holtz (Galileo's Cannonball)
Catherine (The Golden Cup of Belshazzar)
Jennifer (John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine)
Becca (The Helmet of Genghis Khan)
Tina (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
Lea (The Star of Sultan Saladin)
Lucretia (The Trojan Horseshoe)
Jennifer (The Belly Button of Buddha)
Jennifer (The Golden Chains of Zenobia)
Tracy (The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa)
Tara (The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary)
Colleen (Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat)
Jennifer (The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl)
Candace (Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress)
Shannon (The Collar of Davy Crockett)
Tracy (The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra)
Katherine "Fred" (The Treasure of Anne Bonny)
Jammin' John (Galileo's Cannonball)
Taylor (The Helmet of Genghis Khan)
Steve (The Keys to the Alhambra)
Robbie (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
Shawn (The Trojan Horseshoe)
Nick (Henry VIII's Great Seal)
Mitchell (The Moccasins of Geronimo)

I am going to have to eliminate Jennifer from Golden Chains of Zenobia. She knew exactly where to go and what to in each room, but she didn't do anything that spectacular during her performance. She got through five rooms in a minute, which isn't bad for a Season One run. However, the objectives consisted of climbing the Cave of Sighs, hitting tongues on the Gargoyle Room, running across the Troubled Bridge, and then spinning the sundial to go from the Observatory to the Treasure Room. There wasn't anything too elaborate or laborious in her path, yet she never really picked up the pace. What this decision came down to was the fact that we are looking for the "best contestants" of Season One, and I feel that the other players remaining on the list fit that label a bit better.

Becca from "Genghis Khan" can go next. I actually like this win, but I don't she was that amazing compared to the remaining winners. I mean she made no attempt to try any of the actuators in the Cave of Sighs to the Wall Climb and went up to the Gargoyle Room, which she could've just done from the temple gates. Also, she walked through the temple it seemed like and didn't even attempt to assemble the monkey when she entered the Shrine.

Lucretia from "The Trojan Horsehoe" can go next. Like Becca, she didn't move that fast, and she wasn't that great compared to the others.

My second vote goes to Jennifer from "Galileo's Cannonball". While she was a decent contestant and laid out a nice path for Jammin' John, she looked clueless in some rooms of the temple and she also walked in other parts of the temple. Besides, this win should be attributed to John.

Get rid of Bobby from "The Mask of Shaka Zulu". Moderate speed and a ridiculously easy layout does NOT make you among the best...even if some idiots on YouTube say otherwise. :roll:

Catherine (The Golden Cup of Belshazzar) was not remarkable by any means and I'm surprised she has made it this far. Time for her to go.

Tim from "Alexander and the Gordian Knot" goes next. While he was much faster than Retina, he wasn't that remarkable.

Its a new day and I am going to get rid of Eddie from "Joan of Arc". He was a faster contestant than Mandy was in the temple, but he just didn't last long enough to prove much. I don't think contestants who lasted 3-4 rooms should be considered the "best contestant".

While she was part of a great winning effort, Candace (Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress) didn't last that long and she struggled with the Cave of Sighs. She wasted like 30 seconds in there and she's lucky David bailed her out. It's bye bye time for her I'm afraid.

My elimination for today is for Shannon (The Collar of Davy Crockett). She had a very solid performance in the temple, but she wasn't the most efficient player at maneuvering through the Cave of Sighs or the Room of the Fallen Columns. Definitely Top 25 material, in my opinion, but I think this is a good place for her to stop.

And just so everyone knows, we have entered the top 25; actually we did a few eliminations ago. So I think we should start numbering them (since that was what the original goal of this thread was):

25. Tim (Alexander and the Gordian Knot)
24. Eddie (Helmet of Joan of Arc)
23. Candace (Lawrence of Arabia’s Headdress)
22. Shannon (The Collar of Davy Crockett)


These are the contestants still left in the list:

Jennifer (John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine)
Tina (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
Lea (The Star of Sultan Saladin)
Jennifer (The Belly Button of Buddha)
Tracy (The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa)
Tara (The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary)
Colleen (Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat)
Jennifer (The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl)
Tracy (The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra)
Katherine "Fred" (The Treasure of Anne Bonny)
Jammin' John (Galileo's Cannonball)
Taylor (The Helmet of Genghis Khan)
Steve (The Keys to the Alhambra)
Robbie (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
Shawn (The Trojan Horseshoe)
Nick (Henry VIII's Great Seal)
Shane (The Oracle Bowl of Delphi)
Danny (The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary)
David (King Tut's Cobra Staff)
David (Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress)
Robert (The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra)

The #21 spot goes to Taylor from "The Helmet of Genghis Khan." While he did move a bit faster than Becca did, there were way better players on the list than him. He's just average compared to them.

25. Tim (Alexander and the Gordian Knot)
24. Eddie (Helmet of Joan of Arc)
23. Candace (Lawrence of Arabia’s Headdress)
22. Shannon (The Collar of Davy Crockett)
21. Taylor (The Helmet of Genghis Khan)

Honestly, Jennifer (The Belly Button of Buddha) should not even be in the top 25. She looked so clueless in some of the rooms and she's lucky that she even won. Before she moves on any further, I'm giving her 20th place.

25. Tim (Alexander and the Gordian Knot)
24. Eddie (Helmet of Joan of Arc)
23. Candace (Lawrence of Arabia’s Headdress)
22. Shannon (The Collar of Davy Crockett)
21. Taylor (The Helmet of Genghis Khan)
20. Jennifer (The Belly Button of Buddha)

My second vote goes to "Fred" from "Anne Bonny". She was a fun contestant to watch from beginning to the end of the entire episode, and she moved fast in the temple. There is no doubt in my mind this team would've won if the Cheater went in first and Fred went in second. But she just didn't last in the temple long enough even though she moved fast. Spot #19 is good for her.

25. Tim (Alexander and the Gordian Knot)
24. Eddie (Helmet of Joan of Arc)
23. Candace (Lawrence of Arabia’s Headdress)
22. Shannon (The Collar of Davy Crockett)
21. Taylor (The Helmet of Genghis Khan)
20. Jennifer (The Belly Button of Buddha)
19. Katherine/"Fred" (The Treasure of Anne Bonny)
