Dried Apple Half, Golden Spider Web, and Xerxes. Those are the only bad Green Monkey runs really. The rest are just fine.

Very close results, but it looks like the three biggest runs that bring shame to the Green Monkeys is William Tell, Xerxes, and a three way tie between Robert the Bruce, Lost Lariat, and Icarus. For now, I am going to keep the three way tie as a third place finish and do a tiebreaker later.

Our next team will be the Orange Iguanas.  :mrorange:

Just like the Red Jaguars, the Orange Iguanas are full of terrible fails. The three I voted for were Bifocal Monocle, Enormous Feather, and Harriet Tubman.

Bifocal Monocle: No comment. These two were lost causes and some of the mistakes they made took stupidity to a whole new level.

Enormous Feather: Karisa was such a big fail and tried her hardest for this team not to win. Well, she was successful. I have never seen a temple runner like Karisa piss away an easy win. She got was so slow and got lost in the simplest room of S3. I can't stand watching this run... at all. :roll:

Harriet Tubman: Chris creates a good path all the way to the Shrine, and Ryann only lasts in the temple for 3 seconds and blows the run by running into the... incorrect entrance room. :roll: This run is a perfect example of what not to do in the temple. :roll:

Special mentions to Cracked Crown for Kerry's super slow speed and to Grandy Nanny for both players having no idea what to do. :roll:

This one's tough. In the end, I went with Cracked Crown, Bifocal Monocle, and Enormous Feather. Other runs I considered were Shiva, Grandy Nanny, Harriet Tubman, and Clovis I. So many lame Orange Iguana runs. :roll:

For me, it's Cracked Crown, Bifocal Monocle, and Enormous Feather. But truth be told, a lot of Orange Iguana runs suck. :roll:

This poll wasn't too hard as the three runs were pretty obvious - Oracle Bowl, Lost Lion Tail, and Sultan Suleiman.

Oracle Bowl: The first minute of the run start out fine, but then it took a turn for the worst when Jackie entered the temple. She was so slow and dumb in the temple. It took her a long time to get out of the Cave of Sighs and she couldn't get past the Pirate's Cove. :roll:

Lost Lion Tail: Despite getting a free pass to the temple, this team still puts on a crappy performance. Marie was fine, but Claude was terrible. :roll: He only made it to the Mine Shaft with a 1:45 to himself and didn't even know what to do there. Worst Purple Parrot player ever. :roll:

Sultan Suleiman: Way too many mistakes made by Gracelyn and Brian. Brian screwed up the most though by not trying all 3 books in the Crypt AND not signaling the half-pendant back to Gracelyn. And they were slow anyways. :roll:

The only other real choice is "Golden Pepperoni". But I don't think Aqila passing up the Pepperoni to be that bad. Especially compared to the three above.  :roll:

Yeah, the shameful runs are pretty obvious. Oracle Bowl featured Jackie, who I thought was the disgrace of the Purple Parrots...until I remembered Claude from Lost Lion Tail. He's the real disgrace, though Jackie's still pretty bad. And Suleiman is just cringe-worthy to watch.

Oracle Bowl, Sacred Ring, and Lost Lion Tail. I don't think it requires explanation.

It looks like this one is unanimous, with Oracle Bowl, Lost Lion Tail, and Sultan Suleiman all getting the only votes.

Our final team will be the Silver Snakes.  :mrsilver:

The Silver Snakes had some big fails in the temple, but my vote went to Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Lost Hammer: Out of 120 episodes on the show, Kim was the only contestant who did not know what an actuator looked like. There is no excuse for this level of stupidity. It's hilarious how they even sent out a mercy temple guard. Billy also kind of ruined it too by wasting unnecessary time in the Spider's Lair. But I am voting this one mostly for Kim.

Golden Cricket Cage: Um yeah, four rooms in 3 minutes? What an awful and poor excuse for a temple appearance. This was the worst temple run on Legends and the Silver Snakes should be ashamed for having back-to-back fails. :roll:

Mt. Kilimanjaro: They only made it through 5 rooms in 3 minutes. That is awful for S3 standards. Casey was so slow in the temple and it took him 2-3 times to complete his objectives. Heather was a cheater for trying to force the Dark Forest door open. Terrible run.

Other pretty big fails were Nathan Hale and Poseidon. But at least those two runs had players that knew what they were doing for the most part. The above three are like bottom 5 runs on the whole show. :roll:

TRJ hit it spot on. Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Mt. Kilimanjaro are just awful.

And it looks like the Silver Snakes worst runs were Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Kilimanjaro.  :oops:

And that will cover all of the teams and their shameful runs. Thanks for everyone for putting in their input.  :mrred:  :mrblue:  :mrgreen:  :mrorange:   :mrpurple:  :mrsilver:
