I will take my second vote now and missing the top five is Robert from "Cleopatra". He was another very fast contestant of season one, but he only lasted five rooms and didn't really complete many objectives that were difficult. Plus, Tracy was the one that brought out the Snake Bracelet. I am sure if he went in second, then this run would've have a hell of a lot of time remaining on the clock. But when we get down to it, these five remaining players contributed to their team at winning or were very close at least.

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)
18. Tina (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
17. Nick (Henry VIII's Great Seal)
16. David (King Tut's Cobra Staff)
15. Tracy (The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa)
14. Tracy (The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra)
13. Shane (The Oracle Bowl of Delphi)
12. Danny (The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary)
11. Shawn (The Trojan Horseshoe)
10. Jennifer (The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl)
9. Robbie (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
8. Steve (The Keys to the Alhambra)
7. Colleen (Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat)
6. Robert (The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra)

Jennifer (John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine)
Lea (The Star of Sultan Saladin)
Tara (The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary)
Jammin' John (Galileo's Cannonball)
David (Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress)

Starting off the top 5 is Tara (The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary). She was the star of this run.....until she attempted to exit the temple. Other than that, she was really solid. Definitely one of the best female players on the show, but her run ends here.

Don't forget that once we get to our final two players, we will hold a poll and decide who wins. And once that happens, we can move onto Season 2 (which will probably be a little more exciting hopefully). ;)

Just missing the Top 3 is Jammin' John from "Galileo's Cannonball." He was a great player, but really, the only objective he had to do was assemble the monkey. I know this was so early on in the series, but the other three players to me were a little better.

For my elimination today, I will be deciding who makes it to the final two. What pressure! I reviewed all three runs again, and they were all very solid in nearly every way. All three of them traversed through a number of rooms, reached their episode's artifact and claimed a win. Jennifer, who is probably most memorable for her slip at the temple gate, stayed competitive and fast throughout her run. Lea, who claimed an impressive solo run, always moved forward by trying to use shortcuts and knew what to do in every room upon entry of each room. David, who ran out of the temple in under 30 to record a 0:01 finish, was a speed-demon who was very smart in taking the Shrine/Tomb of Ancient Kings shortcut and by utilizing the wall climb in the Pit.

As difficult as this decision was, I have come to a verdict. The #3 spot will belong to Jennifer (John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine). Like I said, she was very fast and knew what she was doing. However, she tried to use the torches in the Torch Room, when the elevator was already accessible. In addition, out of the three of the contestants, she had the slowest assembly time in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. I feel that the other two contestants hold feats/accomplishments that are a little bit more distinguishable and impressive. It is with much respect that I place Jennifer in position #3.

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)
18. Tina (The Pendant of Kamehameha)
17. Nick (Henry VIII's Great Seal)
16. David (King Tut's Cobra Staff)
15. Tracy (The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa)
14. Tracy (The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra)
13. Shane (The Oracle Bowl of Delphi)

I didn't expect Leah to make it to the final two. I thought it would've been John or Jennifer, but I am not disappointed at all. I set the poll and already placed my vote. The poll will expire in 24 hours and then the winner will be revealed. So please vote when you get a chance. ;)

Onto season two in the mean time! :mrred:
