For me, one temple run was more impressive than the other, and that was what I based my vote on.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

I'm not doing this "secret" stuff, so I'm just gonna say it. I voted for Metal Beard. It was just more exciting, and had more going for it than Sforza did.

Both episodes are great, but this vote was kind of easy for me. I went with Egyptian Queen because I enjoyed watching TJ and Randy in this episode. From the come back in the team game, to winning their only tiebreaker, they are a team that I wanted to see go far. The temple run was also very exciting, from Randy's down to the wire exit and TJ's screaming. Egyptian Queen is a classic episode and a good representation of the Purple Parrots.  :mrpurple: Sforza is a good episode too and I enjoyed the enthusiasm from Lacey and Asher and Kirk, but this team never pulled me in as much as TJ and Randy. And while I don't think their layout was as easy as people make it out to be, but Lacey and Asher benefited from having an easy layout due to being the final production day. A good win, but Egyptian Queen is much better. Egyptian Queen deserves to be in the Sweet 16 more than Sforza. ;)  :mrpurple:

Yeah, this was an easy vote for me too. What coincidence that Metal Beard was the only tiebreaker win for the Purple Parrots. And Sforza was the only tiebreaker LOSS for the Blue Barracudas. :lol: And let's face it, the Purple Parrots were way overdue for a tiebreaker win, am I right? :mrpurple:

The Purple Parrots were way over due for a tiebreaker all the way back in Season 1, dried old Paintbrush. :P Luckily TJ and Randy broke the tradition and won their only tiebreaker. And they won in the same episode too.  :mrpurple: Imagine if they didn't do it? Then the Purple Parrots would've been forever eternally cursed with no tiebreaker wins and no Orange Iguana temple game wins.  :mrpurple: And Sforza's tiebreaker was kind of generous too. If this as Season 1, then the Barracudas would've went to the temple.

My point is: They deserved to win a tiebreaker. Just like they should've beat the Orange Iguanas in the temple games in half the Orange/Purple episodes. Even if it was only one time. ;)

Moving on to the Sweet 16 is...

THE METAL BEARD OF THE EGYPTIAN QUEEN

Surprised that nine people voted in this pole compared to 6 or 7 in previous. Sforza was my pick however because the episode was pretty memorable for it's unusual run and almost blown tiebreaker. Metal Beard had a good run and a Purple Tiebreaker.

Good turnout and good match! :o

Yeah, I voted for Metal Beard too. Bias aside, I just simply thought it was the better and more memorable episode. Same applies for the temple run. You gotta love that last second win in the final temple game to go to a tiebreaker and win. Sforza was great too, but I just like Metal Beard more. :mrpurple:

Well, it looks like Sforza got some love. :mrgreen: Great episode, but I am glad Egyptian Queen won. ;) It was a more memorable and exciting episode, and I found TJ and Randy to be a fun team to cheer for. Plus, I don't feel as if Sforza should be one of the remaining 16 episodes either. Good episode, but I don't find it as amazing as Egyptian Queen.

Is it wrong that I like Sforza? I think it's a great episode, but everyone seems to hate it. Am I alone on this? =/

Sforza is hated here? A lot of people love Sforza, myself included. Plus, this episode makes it into a lot of top 10 lists also. Hell, some members here have this episode listed as their favorite episode. I would say Benzibab gets more hate than Sforza. ;)

To me, it seems like Sforza is a little more overlooked here. But either way, Metal Beard deserves to advance over Sforza by far. Hell I even voted for Metal Beard over it. So it does work out. ;)
