Yeah, I gave it a 2 as well. I just don't understand why people call Mitchell a strategist. If you see a huge treasure chest in the middle of the room, isn't it your first instinct to open up the chest? He just happened to get lucky that THAT was the only day where the Treasure Chest actually opened. It was just dumb luck, not a strategy. Very uninspiring win.

I gave the "Moccasins of Geronimo" a 6. I happen to like this win. Every victory on the show came about because of some instance(s) of luck working in the teams' favor, whether it was the layout, path, or temple guard placement. Mitchell got lucky that all of the doors he tried opened. I'm not calling him a strategist, but he maneuvered through seven rooms on his way to the Moccasins, switching floors multiple times without ever getting turned around. Considering how often contestants tried doors in the wrong direction, even when they were simply going in a straight line, I would consider Mitchell's path impressive. Sure, he didn't sprint through the temple, but in the Season 1 layouts, it wasn't always vitally necessary to be that fast... take "Davy Crockett" and "Silk Ladder" for instance.

And even though Mitchell did not need to assemble the statue in the Shrine after he grabbed the Moccasins, he was one of many contestants who had some sort of mishap during their exit from the temple. I like to look at Mitchell's assembling the Silver Monkey in a different light: had he needed to enter that room (or any room with an actual objective), he would not have had any difficulty because he looked like he knew what to do in the room. Mitchell stayed calm and focused throughout the whole run and knew what he was doing in every room, never hesitating or getting turned around.

Call it strategy, call it luck, call it ADHD... I don't know what to call whatever it was that led Mitchell to the win, but I do think this run is at least memorable for the use of the treasure chest, the third-fastest completion time ever and especially the fact that the VERY eccentric path Mitchell took through the temple worked without a single hitch.  That's a lot more than I can say for some other wins, so even though "The Moccasins of Geronimo" might feel a little cheap, I still gave it a 5.

And Geronimo's time is going to end here. It will finish with a score of 4.00.

Next up is "The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta".

I am going to give Chandragupta an 8. It was a pretty exciting solo win that had a very close finish. Andrea did a solid job in the temple and I can't think of one thing she did wrong. She completed her rooms at a fast speed and even signaled her half-pendant to Shaun. Her exit was very close, but she still pulled it off in the end. I loved the enthusiasm that she displayed throughout her episode and temple run. You can tell that it was authentic and that she was happy to win at the end of her run. I am glad this team won and they deserved it.

I gave it a 7. I would've given it an 8, but I gave Bandit Queen a 7 and I think that run is better than the Chandragupta win. This was a solid win though. Andrea was a really good player.

I gave this an 8, great win and great effort by Andrea. And I also loved Andrea's enthusiasm throughout the episode and run.

I am honestly surprised on how some of these wins already have a higher score than "Bandit Queen". I thought Bandit Queen was immensely loved on this forum. I didn't expect "Galileo's Cannonball" or "Sir Gawain" to have a higher score than Bandit Queen. :o

I also gave "Chandragupta" an 8. Andrea's performance in the temple was very strong. Her entire run is memorable, and I greatly enjoy watching it.

For reasons mentioned, I'll say an 8. Did you know there is a YouTube Poop with this episode and the Moccasins of Geronimo.

Is it possible that I change my vote for both Bandit Queen and Chandragupta to an 8? I feel so lonely being the only one to choose 7. :(

Hey, I was the only one who voted 7 for the "Royal Torque" episode, and I didn't feel alone. But, since you've already changed your vote for Chandragupta, you could probably get away with changing your vote for "Bandit Queen" as well.

Yeah, there have been a couple of wins where I was the only one to give it a certain score but didn't want to change it in the end. Like I was the only that gave Sforza a 5 and never changed it. Regardless, I will fix the score for Bandit Queen to reflect the change. And I am going to stop Chandragupta's time right here. It will finish with a perfect 8.00.

Next up is "The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid".
