I gave the Secret Map of the Bandit Queen a 7 also. The second half of the run was incredibly exciting, but the first half was very flat. Like TRJ mentioned, the path was rather short and simple, compared to most Season 3 runs. And as much as I enjoyed watched Zac blaze through the temple, it should be pointed out that this run required that Zac move as quickly as he did; otherwise, they would have run out of time.

Even though this is one of my favorite wins, I'm giving it a 7 as well. I would've given it a higher score if it wasn't for Miriam. The layout might have been a little simple, but I don't think that matters. Zac was amazing with the little time he had.

It's obviously a top 10 episode all because of Zac. Come on, the whole Temple in 1:18? No wonder why it was a record. It was also why Nick GaS aired this often.

I am going to end Bandit Queen's time right here. It ends with a perfect 7.00.

Next up is "The Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe".

This was a hard vote for me, but I gave Enormous Iron Nose Ring a score of a 6. It was a good temple win, but not the "Best solo win" everyone seems to make it out to be. I was originally going to give the win a 5, but it was both memorable and Joel was pretty solid IMO. He absolutely destroyed the bottom floor of the temple. However, he had trouble assembling the monkey, a room where many other temple victors didn't struggle as much as he did. Plus, his exit plan was pretty bad and he could've beat Shaka Zulu's record if he stayed at the top. But this run is very memorable for me though for Joel's speed, no temple guard capture, and one of the earliest wins I ever saw. And as much as Joel struggled, he was a very fast guy. Not the win that everyone makes it out to be, but still respectable.  :mrsilver:

A respectable win. Not the best, but not the worst. I gave it a 6. Joel's speed was incredible, but his attempt at the Silver Monkey and his exit were bad.

I give it a 6. Good effort by Joel, but it is way overrated. Most of his bottom floor objectives were merely just hit the actuator, and his attempt at assembling the monkey was poor. Plus, his exit plan sucked.

Joel is good but overrated because of a bad Silver Monkey attempt and Exit plan.  Plus the positive side is he sprinted past a Temple Guard in the Dark Forest. I'll give this a 6.

I gave the "Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe" run a 7. Joel was very quick and moved through the rooms quite efficiently. He did have a bit of trouble with the Silver Monkey, but he did not get stalled for that long. And even though he did not take the shortest route out of the temple, it didn't matter because he had so much time left on the clock that he could have taken another lap around the temple without running out of time. In my opinion, his "poor" exit plan added to the excitement of the run. It was also incredibly rare for a contestant to evade all three guards, which made this run even more memorable.

And that is it for Enormous Iron Nose Ring. It got a higher score than I expected, but nevertheless it ended with a score of 6.20.

Next up is "The Mask of Shaka Zulu".

I gave Shaka Zulu a score of a 2. Between this run and " :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:", I am not sure which one I can't stand more. I really could care less about the Shaka Zulu win though and I always skip this win when I watch some of the temple wins on the show. The only time I watch it is for the production error in the Holes of Python. Bobby is so overrated and I don't see how he is the "best contestant ever". Yeah, it was the fastest win on the show. But come on now, only four rooms enroute to the artifact? It is so obvious know that Bobby shouldn't have been able to enter the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. Overall, this win is boring and I don't even bother with it. One of the worst wins on the show, if not the worst.

I also give it a 2. Bobby just got lucky with his production error in the Holes of Python room. How people consider this "the best temple run ever" just because of his lucky break, is beyond me. And I'll never understand how he's a better player than Jennifer from "John Sutter" just because "he was so fast." Regardless of luck or speed, he wasn't THAT great. It is easily the second most undeserving win next to Silk Ladder.

It's a 2, I think the producers thought they were doing Atahualpa next and accidentally gave it a straightforward path.
