Yeah, I definitely can't give Apanuugpak a 9 now. It is a great run, but I just can't totally get into it like some other wins. Maybe because I saw it A LOT back during the Nick GaS days.

In my mind, the only wins that deserve a perfect 10 are Pirate Captain, Annie Taylor, and Lawrence of Arabia.  ;)

But you DID give Apanuugpak a 9, just NOW. ;) But I agree, Lost Hornpipe, Lucky Pillow, and Lawrence of Arabia definitely deserve it now.

I was gonna give it a 10, but I felt like a 9 would be more fitting instead. Everyone else gave it a 10 last time we did this topic. But now? I have a feeling either Lucky Pillow or Lost Hornpipe will get that average. Not that they don't deserve it.

I don't mind if people rate this win as a 10, but I just don't feel like it is entirely fitting though. I like Lost Hornpipe better because it was an exciting run from start to finish. Jessica and Jarrid both dominating the temple was very exciting every second of the way. Apanuugpak was kind of average up until Gator entered the temple. Now, if Amanda moved faster than maybe I could've loved this win a little more. But still, people are not wrong for calling this the best win ever. It does deserve that title for Gator.  :mrgreen: It just doesn't pull me in all the way like Lawrence of Arabia, Annie Taylor, and Lost Hornpipe. Those are the wins I will always give a 10 to. ;)  :mrgreen:

It looks like this episode is gonna finish with a solid 9 average instead of a solid 10 average. Not that I mind, but Lucky Pillow is the one that NEEDS to get a solid 10 average. It just has to, you can't NOT love that win. After all, Lucky Pillow (the artifact) got a solid 10 average, am I right?

Truer words were never spoken. Unfortunately for us, we're gonna have to wait a while on that one. :roll:

Or maybe I'll raise the highest score from "10" to "20." Or 10+ might work. What do you think? :P

And with a solid 9 average, time to end the poll for "The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak." :mrgreen:

Up next is "The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy." :mrorange:

I gave this win a 1. I know this is too low, but this win is waaaaaay overrated. While Paula did a decent job in the temple, she wasn't THAT great. People just like her because of that dumbass "Comeback Kid" story arc, which is a sugar coated way of saying "You barely scraped by each round." It's not like they're THE only team to barely scrape by. The War Fan team did it, the Enormous Feather did got to the temple the same way, so how come they don't get a parade thrown for them? This is basically the "Geronimo" of Season 2. Where Paula completely lucks into her layout, yet somehow she gets nothing but praise for it. I don't care how "amazing" of a player Matt was. It's the most undeserved win ever next to Shaka Zulu and Silk Ladder. :roll:

I gave Butch Cassidy a 2. This is one of the most over-exaggerated wins on the show. Just because a player finishes with a lot of time does NOT mean it is a good win. In this case, Paula's win is easy to hate because of how her team went to the temple. I still believe that Paula fell off her horse before time was up during the team game. But that is a whole different story. The win itself is so lame and definitely one of the bottom wins on the show. How someone finds a contestant who hits actuators all the way to their artifact to be amazing is beyond me. :roll: The only reason I didn't give it a 1 was because at least Paula moved at a decent pace and knew what she was doing. I hate Geronimo more than this win because people make Mitchell out to be another Ty or Zac with his dumb luck with the Treasure Chest. And Mitchell moved slow and made a bone-headed mistake after grabbing the artifact.

Long story short, one of the most boring and lame wins on the show.  :?

Yeah, I am completely convinced that the third temple game call was 100% wrong and that Paula DID fall off the horse. I will stand by that until the day that I die. Like I said, people just like Paula and Matt because of their stupid "Comeback Kid" storyline. If they had been first in the moat, and swept the temple games, I bet nobody would even give them a second look. Best temple run ever? HA! :roll:

Case in point: Dr. Livingstone. Brett and Tabitha were pretty dominant before the temple run including finishing first in the moat and sweeping the temple games. And yet, no one can even remember this is a win.  :lol:
