Strike 2 for Blue Pearl. The last page or two has been interesting to say the least. I don't think Blue Pearl should be in the top 5, but problem is, I feel the same way about another loss or two remaining.

Strike #2 for Belle Boyd. It just wasn't as memorable as the other 5.

I guess I'm a bad person then for not seeing what's to love about Blue Pearl. Strike 3 for Blue Pearl.

Blue Pearl is probably my third favorite loss on this list. The ending was very exciting and memorable, and Jennifer was literally a couple of inches short. Although I can understand the frustration with this loss too, especially with Albert. I think spot #5 is perfect for Blue Pearl.

And spot #4 goes to Belle Boyd.

Strike 1 for Golden Earring. Both this run and the Ivan the Terrible run are very exciting, but Ashley and Shem could have done a few things differently that may have allowed them to be more successful. Ashley found the key in the Dark Forest, but then failed to use it. Had she gone directly into the Shrine, she could have had a solo victory. Shem also failed go directly into the Mandarin Hand Room from the King's Storeroom.

Agreed with PP4L. Strike 2 for Henry Morgan. It's definitely one of the best losses on the show, but it could've been a win if not for some silly mistakes. Heck, it had a chance to be a solo win had Ashley used the Dark Forest key. As for Discarded Seal, there was nothing else the team could've done to change their outcome for the better. They were virtually flawless and still couldn't get to the Seal because of the impossible layout and temple guards. Both teams were outstanding, but I think Discarded Seal is truly the best loss on the show because the team was flawless and made this impossible layout exciting to watch from beginning to end. That's not to say the Henry Morgan run was bad, because it was awesome too. It was just more flawed than Discarded Seal.

Not sure if I'm allowed to vote again, but honestly, Discarded Seal HAS to win. None of this "go the other way to make things interesting" crap. I'm giving Henry Morgan strike 3 without a care in the world about repercussions.

Good, I'm glad Discarded Seal won. Like PP319 said, it HAD TO BE the winner.

I am glad Ivan the Terrible won and it was obvious that it was going to win too.  :mrgreen: Travis and Elisa were a flawless team and they still lost in the temple. The ending is very tragic with Elisa getting caught by that last guard in the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Despite the loss, they were fun to watch in the temple and if any team deserved a second chance, Travis and Elisa would be the first on my list.  :mrgreen:

But still, you can't deny that Henry Morgan was one of the most exciting losses on the show. Despite the players' flaws, the temple run was very exciting from Shem's speed to the last second grab of the Golden Earring. And it was awesome to see how happy Ashley and Shem were just for even grabbing the artifact even though they didn't win it all. It's not like Henry Morgan is an unworthy candidate, it just doesn't stack up to Ivan the Terrible's quality. Still a great and exciting loss.  :mrsilver:

#4: "The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd" (one lower)
#5: "The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl" (two higher)
#6: "The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie" (good, maybe switch with Boadicea)
#7: "The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea" (good, maybe switch with Empress Eugenie)
#8: "The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoleon" (good)
#9: "The Pendant of Kamehameha" (good, very memorable loss despite the outcome)
#10: "The Medal of Sir Edmund Hillary" (maybe a little closer to Mush Pot Hat)
#11: "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl" (higher, it was a very exciting and memorable loss despite Kristen's speed.)
#12: "The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag of William the Conqueror" (good, but this should've been on the list of wins.)
#13: "The Bonnet of Dolley Madison" (good)
#14: "Henry VIII's Great Seal" (good)
#15: "The Mush Pot Hat of Johnny Appleseed" (good)
#16: "The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu" (good)
#17: "King Tut's Cobra Staff" (good)
#18: "The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief" (good)
#19: "The War Fan of the 47 Ronin" (it doesn't really belong in the top 20...)
#20: "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa" (a little higher. It was pretty exciting for the ending)
