LMAO! :lol:

And updating the poll and averaging the totals will be an easy job for me, that's for sure. :mrsilver:

The worst one is easily Larry's Monster Monkey. He didn't even come close with a minute to himself. :roll: Although Kim from Charles Lindbergh did a lousy job too. She kept dropping her pieces and putting them in the wrong place. :roll:
Yet you fail to mention Kelly from Montezuma? At least Derek from Henry Hudson had some excuse, time was running out.

I gave this room an 8. I thought this was a great pit room. I especially liked the way this pit looked, with the rocks, the rope, and of course the green balls at the bottom. Even though this was yet another hit the actuator room, I liked how the contestants had the option to swing across the Pit, and jump down at the same time. It didn't limit where the contestants could or couldn't go. Plus, this Pit did have some memorable moments, like Tarrah's epic jump across the Pit in the Freydis run. :lol: This is probably my second favorite Pit Room next to the Pit of the Pendulum. ;)

I gave the Pit of the Pendulum a 7. It was definitely one of the best and most creative Pits on the show and it felt like an actual objective. I like how when the column was knocked over that it showed all of the available rooms that were open. And I also liked how you can go around and knock down the column different ways. On the other hand, I liked it when the contestants could go up to the door they want and simply choose their next path. That was the one charm I liked about the old Pits. And admittedly, I hope they would replace it in Season 4.

Umm, Stone Marker? You do realize this is The Pit of Despair Rope from Season 2 and NOT the already covered Pit of the pendulum, right? Please pay attention to the name of this thread. You might want to reconsider your vote and reasoning. ;)

That would help. :lol: I gave it an 8 then for the same reasons. It was definitely my most favorite Pit form and you can tell that the producers used this idea for the Pit of the Pendulum. The rock slabs were a clever addition because it made it easier for more teams to use the upper routes. And I like it better too when the contestants could hit the actuator to open their next door. No offense to the Pit of the Pendulum. Also, it had some very memorable moments like Jason from Dog Leash and Tarrah from Freydis.  :mrorange:  :mrpurple:

I can't believe I forgot to mention Jason from Nostradamus and his grab the rope with the leash bit. :o But yeah, this was one of my favorite pit rooms ever. It's a tie between this and the Pit of the Pendulum for which one I like better. I think I might like the Pit of the Pendulum a little more though. ;)

I gave this room a 4. The pirate ship wheel was neat I guess, but it was just a Torch Room in disguise. I mean, if you headed toward the Shrine, you STILL had to do the Torch Room objective. It defeats the purpose of half the room. I guess there was not much you could do with this room, because it wouldn't make sense to spin a ships wheel just to gain access to the Shrine. I don't know, this room was poorly executed.

I gave the Pirate's Cove a 2. I hate this room and the idea felt like it came from the playground or pre-school. :roll: Seriously, it looks so silly for a teenager to spin some Pirate wheel as a room objective. The room itself was bland and was just the Torch Room with a pirate wheel added on. Also, I like how the room had dual objectives but no one ever explained the Torch Room part. You wonder why Jackie from Oracle Bowl was confused in this room. Not even Kirk knew what to do at first. :roll: The only redeeming part is that it forced the players to actually complete an objective before entering the room below. But the objective was so easy that it is nothing special at all. :roll:

Season 1 always had uncreative rooms. Why is this such a surprise? :roll:

They must've had 5-year old kids designing these rooms. I mean why else would we have such lame rooms like the Throne Room, Pirate's Cove, Heart Room, Dungeon, your Treasure Room, Swamp, etc.
