Analysis: I'm leaning toward Priceless Portrait. Much better episode and much better run. No offense to Purple Robe, though.

Yeah, also voted for Priceless Portrait. Much more exciting episode all around. Imperial Robe is just plain average. And what a coincidence that Jim and Kristen appeared in BOTH episodes. :lol:

What a coincidence, a matchup dedicated to Jim and Kristen.  :mrsilver:

I had to choose Polynesian Girl because it is a much more exciting and memorable episode. I loved the art theme used in this episode and the temple run was very exciting. Even if Jim and Kristen should've won, this was still one of the most exciting losses on the show.  :mrsilver: Imperial Purple Robe is an episode that I can go back and watch, but it is definitely not as exciting as Polynesian Girl. I guess Jim and Kristen did us a favor by losing in the Imperial Purple Robe moat.  :mrsilver:

They lost at the steps TRJ, not the moat. ;)

I am use to moat second chance contestants being rejects. :lol: I hope Polynesian Girl goes far in this competition though. It is one of the few episodes that end in a loss that I think highly of. Same with Sir Edmund Hillary, Henry Morgan, and Discarded Seal. Those are episodes that I hope make it far even if they end in losses.  :mrteal:

I agree. I honestly think some of the losses on the show are better than half the wins. An episode doesn't have to be a win to be exciting.

Episodes like Snake Bracelet, Davy Crockett, Shaka Zulu, Buddha, Geronimo, Butch Cassidy, Dr. Livingstone, Ahmed Baba, Roland, and Genghis Khan are some episodes where I enjoy a lot of losses better than these wins. Those are episodes that were average all day, and their wins were nothing special either.

Yeah, and episodes like Snake Bracelet and Dr. Livingstone are episodes where I forget they're even wins. On the opposite end, sometimes I think of episodes like Discarded Seal and Blue Pearl as wins. And they didn't even reach their artifacts in those respective runs. :lol: I don't know why, maybe it's because those runs were so exciting.

I won't lie, I actually like  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: . This episode never gets old to watch because it was pretty comical all the way through. You have Jeremy's constant gong hitting, the crazy Steps answer, the funny temple game interviews, and Jeremy's victory dance is so ridiculous.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: I like rewatching this episode for that very reason. As for the win... let the smiley train explain how I feel  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: . ;) :mrsilver:
