This was kind of hard to vote for due to the lack of options.  :o In the end, I went with Cobra Staff, Annie Oakley, and Henry Hudson.

Cobra Staff - It was either this one or Blackfeet Chief. I went with this one because the team out up a better effort with a lengthy layout. If only Eusinia got her head together earlier on and David moved faster, then they might've had victory.

Annie Oakley - Chandra and Nick were a very strong team in the temple, but they took the longest way in the temple which only wasted time for them and prevented them from reaching the Cloak. But still, the one room away guard was kind of brutal for them and they were the Purple Parrots' strongest losing team. I think they deserved a second chance.

Henry Hudson - Sherra and Derek were slow, but their temple layout was also very brutal also. They still even made it far with a hard layout. They were also very dominant before the temple run, so I think a strong team like them deserves a second chance.

Cobra Staff, Bone Necklace, and Annie Oakley. Those were the only teams that I felt like deserved another chance and didn't screw up too much.

The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley - The easy choice.  Chandra and Nick were a great team.  They kept up the pace throughout the run and their only mistake was passing up both doors to the Shrine and taking the elevator instead.  Plus, their layout was very difficult.

King Tut's Cobra Staff - Eusinia and David weren't amazing, but they were pretty good, and to be honest, a lot of the things that wasted their time weren't their fault.  The Observatory-Heart Room door stalled, the Throne Room was a dead-end, and the elevator stalled.

The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson - Sherra and Derek were only about average in the Temple.  To put it simply, they sucked the least.  I know it sounds bad, but when you look at the other ones, every other team had at least one player, if not both, who were absolutely terrible.

I didn't find Leah and Brandon to be bad at all. Leah was very slow though, and Brandon was not much faster, but they did almost pull it off though. That was no fluke at all. And Brandon had the fastest Silver Monkey assembly too.

This was hard, but I'm going with Cobra Staff, Bone Necklace, and Leopard-Skin Cloak. The Upside-Down Compass team isn't exactly my favorite. :S

And that's it for the Purple Parrots! The teams that were decided for a second chance were Annie Oakley (7), Cobra Staff (6), and Henry Hudson (5).

Now we will cover our final team - the Silver Snakes.  :mrsilver:

My three Silver Snake choices: Kamehameha, Missing Eye, and War Fan.

Kamehameha: Robbie and Tina were a really good team throughout their episode and in the temple. While they are sort of to be blamed for the triple capture, there was also little they could do with their temple path. And even if the Dungeon temple guard was fair, the ending was very heartbreaking and tragic. They deserved a second go after that awkward ending.

Missing Eye: Another triple capture that was hardly the teams fault. I don't blame them for passing up the half-pendant and they would've won if it wasn't so obscure.

War Fan: Jeremy was NOT responsible for the Headless Kings door locking behind him. The team lost 30 seconds due to a glitchy door. Even though they got the second prize, Elise could've used those 30 seconds to bring the artifact out of the temple. They definitely deserved a second chance.

There are two Henry VIII's in the poll. :|

My votes go for the three TRJ picked, and for the same reasons.

Oops, one of them was suppose to be "The Pendant of Kamehameha".  :lol:

I fixed it though.  ;)

War Fan, Kamehameha, and Priceless Portrait. My reasons:

War Fan: Easy choice here. Elise and Jeremy were completely screwed with the Tomb door getting stuck shut. Couldn't the production crew just stop filming, fix the door, then let them keep going? Like they have done in the past. They definitely deserved a second chance.

Kamehameha: I know the triple capture was pretty much the teams fault. But their temple run ended on such an awkward note, they should've gotten another chance too. Both Robbie and Tina were solid players, they just could've used some better planning.

Priceless Portrait: Both Scott Jim and Kristen were decent players, and they almost pulled off a bottom central shaft win. If only Kristen were faster, or if Jim had gone in second, they would've won for sure.

Almost forgot about this! The three winners are War Fan (7), Kamehameha (6), and Missing Eye (5).

I am thinking of making one final poll with all the winners from every team there. And then we will vote for the 5 teams that deserve a second chance overall. :P

The poll is up, so you can make your five choices now. My five choices were:

1. Ivan the Terrible - Travis and Elisa deserved a second chance the most. They were flawless in the temple and still came up short. The very brutal layout robbed this team of a win. They would've won in almost any other layout that was not on their production day.

2. Belshazzar - Sean and Katherine did not look like bad players at all. Their layout was very bizarre and brutal. It was full of too many dead ends and locked doors. They deserved a second chance, especially after having their temple run postponed already.

3. War Fan - Even though Jeremy and Elise got the second prize, they still should've been able to use their full 3 minutes without any interference from production defects. They might've even won if Elise didn't lose those 30 seconds. It definitely was not Jeremy's fault either.

4. Dead Man's Hand - Another brutal layout. The producers expected way too much from Sarah and Josh. They had the second temple run ever, and their path was all over the temple. It didn't help that their temple run lighting suck. I am sure they would've done better in almost any other layout.

5. Belle Boyd - Just like "Ivan the Terrible", Matthew and Leah were an awesome team in the temple. Even though they took a longer path, they still put up a good effort. Their main downfall was their layout and don't let other people say otherwise.

Belshazzar, Mummified Hand, Ivan the Terrible, Golden Stallion, and War Fan for me. Those to me, were the Top 5 teams that got screwed over the most. Whether it be a production error and/or impossible layout.

This was really tough, but the 5 teams I went with are: Belshazzar, Mummified Hand, Discarded Seal, Useless Map, and War Fan. I wanted to pick Dead Man's Hand and Ali Baba as well, but these 5 teams I feel deserve a second chance the most. Mainly because of the layouts and production errors.

Here's my five:

1. Useless Map - I feel this is a very unfair loss. The Temple Guard placement was just brutal, and with only one Pendant, you have to avoid a guard, and because the first one was in the Crypt, well...

2. Belshazzar - Bad enough that this episode's Temple Run got delayed, but the brutal layout makes it worse. Not to mention the possible production error in the Room of Harmonic Convergence.

3. War Fan - Yet another Temple Run that had a production error. You'd think that they would have cleaned the problems out by Season 3, but nope! Instead, they lose 30 seconds because of a faulty door, which results in them not being able to get to the War Fan in time.

4. Discarded Seal - If this team had any other layout, they would've won for sure. They made no mistakes in the Temple, yet they were forced to take almost no shortcuts. The Temple Guard placement wasn't quite as brutal, but the last one was particularly cruel.

5. Golden Stallion - It was either this or Mummified Hand. I went with this because it was another Temple Run beset by a possible production error in the Throne Room. Because of that, the team had no chance of winning. And what a coincidence, the error happened in the same room space as the Room of Harmonic Convergence and the Tomb of the Headless Kings...jeez, that area is just full of problems.
