Looking back at it now, I think I might change my vote to yes. I mean, Ashlie wasn't the only one who wasted a lot of time in the Dark Forest. Claude and Tess come to mind right away.

Edit: Okay, I do want to change my vote. However, it won't let me. There's no option to remove vote.

Even if she did waste a lot of time in the Dark Forest, Ashlie was very fast before entering that room. So all that time she saved with her swift speed and avoiding the Room of the Mandarin Hand, it actually helped her out after wasting all that time in the Dark Forest. In Tess and Claude's case, they were slow and didn't have much time to use by the time they entered the Dark Forest because they were slow before they entered the Dark Forest.

Voting is long done for Ashlie and it's unanimous. She gets too much criticism.

The next two contestants I have planned were on the same team from the same episode. Once you see the first player, you'll know who the other player will be. More info in the next post. ;)

New poll is up and the next player is Nick from the Madame Tussaud run. With this, you now know who will be after Nick. ;)

This might surprise a lot of people, but I voted yes for Nick getting too much criticism. I had to think hard about this one. In the end, I say he does get too much flack for his performance. Think about it. Nick got into the King's Storeroom with a little more time remaining than Lauren from the Sacagawea run when she got up there. No one ever talks about her performance, but Nick got up there quicker than her. Nick also had to deal with some of the hardest rooms in the temple and he completed them all. Plus, he had to deal with a loud mouth partner. I get it, he wasn't the fastest or the smartest. However, I don't think he's the worst player. There are far worse players than Nick.

For the reasons I mentioned, I feel that everyone's too hard on Nick. Now watch as I'll be the only one to say yes. :P

Wait, Nick gets too much flak for his performance? He was the entire reason they lost. With that said, I voted no. He deserves all the criticism he gets. While going up the central shaft in no easy feat, it should NOT take 2:20 just to do it. Nobody talks about Lauren because well.... she wasn't as slow or as clueless as he was. Nick had no idea what he was doing at all. He pulled on the same Tomb vines a million times, took forever finding all the marker pieces, hesitated in smashing the pots, and stalled being captured in the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Jennifer was right to be hard on him, my head would be exploding too if my partner was being a slowpoke in the temple. Even Kirk said "You can't dwaddle around in the temple." Jennifer was a way better player than Nick was, and at least she didn't walk through every room. What a coincidence, I just reviewed this episode and it got a great score. So I think I know why you chose this episode. Nick was a horrible player, and I will not provide any sympathy for him.

It's hard to feel sorry for Nicholas when he takes his sweet old time in the temple. The central shaft was tough in S3, but plenty of contestants handled it fine like Jessica and Lacey and Asher. He kept wasting his time pulling on vines in the Headless Kings and what armor to place himself into in the Ancient Warriors. Plus, he moved slow anyways. You wonder why Jennifer was yelling at him. As I mentioned in the other topic, Jennifer and Jay were the only contestants justified to shout at their partners. He was a bad player with nothing redeemable about him at all.

Nick gets no sympathy from me. I mean, it took him too long to get through the central shaft. A part of me kind of wishes the Temple Guard in the Room of the Ancient Warriors was put in the Observatory instead. He was that bad. Kirk said it best, "You can't dawdle around in the Temple!"

I watched the run again and now I really want to change my vote for the second time in a row. You guys are right. Nick really did act stupid and slow at times.

Well, I did change my vote and I'm sticking with that change. The vote is unanimous, but I must say this. I've really lost interest in continuing to do this. I just can't keep up with it every day, as evidenced by the huge gap since the last poll. Would anyone like to take control of this topic and put in new players for these polls? If not, then we can stop right here. It won't hurt me any and if we discontinue this, then I'd like to thank everyone for voting in this interesting topic.

If we do continue, then next up would be Nick's partner, Jennifer. I'll update the tally for Nick now. Anybody want to continue this topic?

I prefer not to honestly. I know I made it no secret I never cared for this topic, but my reasoning (now at least) is that nobody is really voting or participating in this discussion. It's up to you really, but if you don't want to do it, then maybe we should stop.

Yeah, this topic got tiring for me, even after 9 polls. It might be best to stop, even though there are still some players I'd like to give a poll for. Does anyone else think this should be continued?
