When it comes to the Purple Parrot fails, this was a tough choice.  :shock: I couldn't decide who to pick between Jackie and Claude. :roll: Really, they were both equally as bad and I can hardly find anything redeeming about either. But I have to say that Claude from "Lost Lion Tail" gets my vote. He was a terrible contestant and one of the worst boys on the show after John. He was slow from the get go when he entered the temple and didn't even have a clue what he was doing. I like how he gets lost in the Mine Shaft and puts his finger into the temple guard peep hole. He didn't know what he was doing at all.

Jackie was pathetic too. She had more time to herself than Claude and pissed it away pretty bad. Just like Claude, she was super slow and clueless. But the reason I chose Claude over her was because, in her defense, the Pirate's Cove objective would've probably confused most other contestants. Kirk was even confused about the room's objective before a good 15 seconds have passed by. And just the way Claude's team got to the temple and then turned around to put up a half-assed gave his episode a nod. At least Jackie and Shane won two pendants.

So yeah, Claude gets my vote for the Purple Parrots. But Jackie is very close behind and then Brian and Gracelyn. :roll:

You're forgetting one and I won't vote until this one is added:

"GET THE PEPPERONI!!!"

Once that is added, my vote goes for that one. Aqila entered the room with like 5 seconds left and fails to grab the pepperoni. Instead, she heads straight for the elevator! How much more clueless can you get? :roll:

I can't believe I forgot the Golden Pepperoni episode.  :shock: I got that one added to the poll. I am still going to stick with Claude though just because of how bad he was. Aqila's mistake comes very close also.

I wonder if I should add Annie Oakley to the poll also?

Thanks for the addition. Not sure about Annie Oakley. Does the fail concern Chandra taking the long path or Nick sticking the Storeroom key at the front?

I was think more along the line of both. But I probably won't add it since I never added Napoleon or Gordian Knot for their respective teams when the runners in those episodes made the same mistake.

Jackie & Claude were shit, but by my rule, you should NEVER run past the artifact.

So my vote is...

GET THE PEPPERONI!!!!!!

In what way is Leopard Skin Cloak a "fail?" So Chandra took a long path in the temple. It's not like she was the only contestant to do that. Shane from Tall Turban does the very same thing, yet he gets universal praise. And so Nick puts the key in a strange place. That only wasted like, 2 seconds. There were waaaaay worse temple runs than Leopard Skin Cloak. Whether it was a Purple Parrot run or not.

As for this poll, Claude gets my vote. I don't think my reasoning requires any explanation.

I think this is a good time to end the Purple Parrots poll. It looks like both Golden Pepperoni and Claude from Little John wins this round.

Our last team we need to cover is the Silver Snakes. As I mentioned earlier, I am not going to put John and Tia in this poll because we know that they will unanimously win this whole thing. They will be held in a future poll though.

Honestly, this was a real hard vote because a lot of these fails were bad. :o It was tough to choose between Kim from Lost Hammer, Snow Cone, and Kimberly from Poseidon. Even Nathan Hale was pretty big fail also.

In the end, I went with Kim from "Lost Hammer". Out of 120 episodes on the show, she was the only one who did not know how to press an actuator. And she got confused in two different rooms for the same thing. I know the S1 temple was new for most of the contestants at that time, but the giant button next to the door isn't obvious enough? Even John and Tia knew what an actuator looked like. It was so bad that everyone was shouting at her to press the button. She literally wasted half of her run trying to figure out how to open a door. :roll:

Snow Cone was pretty crappy also. Both of those players were pretty pathetic and they only made it through five rooms in 3 minutes. That's inexcusable for a S3 run. Also, the legend and artifact were hilariously bad.

Kimberly from Poseidon was also a big fail. But at least she knew what she was doing up until the Shrine. Not many things on the show tops Kim from Lost Hammer.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

I already voted. My vote went to Broken Trident. That fail is the most memorable of the bunch and to me is one of THE biggest fails ever. Kimberly had it won. She went down, yes, but had she not dropped the trident, she might've won. How do you NOT know what to do with the artifact once you've acquired it? :roll:

Am I truly the only one who thinks it was just Billy screaming at Kim, and NOT the entire audience?

Either way, Kim gets my vote. How do you not know how to press a button?

I almost went with Heather and Casey, but Kim failing to find buttons for the doors for so long was definitely a bigger failure.  Kimberly actually wasn't on my radar since she did great until she entered the Room of the Ancient Warriors...


Kind of missed the vote for Purple, but I don't know if you wanted a tiebreaker, RJF. :P
