Yeah, I was gonna mention Dr. Livingstone too. They were second in the moat AND steps, swept the temple games, and won using the same exact layout Bandit Queen and Metal Beard did. And no special little story arc either. Sorry Brett and Tabitha. :lol:

It depends on the team when it comes to temple game sweeps. Some of the temple game sweeps were so painfully obvious that the team would win that they were so unexciting to watch (Stone Head, Dr. Livingstone, Zenobia, etc.) But those teams weren't that great in the temple even though they swept their temple games. Runs like Dolley Madison where the team performs strongly in the temple are more easy to root for. Now that is a sweeping Orange Iguanas team I would take over Butch Cassidy if Paula and Matt swept the temple games.

Changed my vote to a 2, because like Brent says, it's not Shaka Zulu. I personally think that is more suitable than a 1. But that's just me.

And with a solid 2 average, time to end this stupid poll for "The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy." :roll:

Up next is "The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra." :mrsilver:

I gave this win a 5. Another forgettable, downright uninspiring Season 1 win. Robert was fast, but Tracy was pretty slow. And what REALLY drags it down for me was her complete and utter lack of enthusiasm when she crosses the gates. Hello, you just won the grand prize. At least LOOK like you're having fun. I personally don't like this win at all. =/

I gave Snake Bracelet a 5. This temple run was both boring and forgettable. Robert and Tracy had an easy layout, but they still almost didn't win thanks to Tracy. Robert was definitely a fast guy, but Tracy was too slow and looked a little clueless. Plus, she had no enthusiasm at the end of the run. Sorry, but it is hard to enjoy a win when the contestants themselves aren't happy. Plus, a layout this easy should've had a Benzibab record. Tara and Danny would've demolished this layout. I don't hate this win though, but I don't really like it. I am simply indifferent towards it. :|

I just hate it. I do. WOULD YOU FUCKING SMILE TRACY?!?! YOU JUST WON THE GODDAMN SHOW! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Rant over. Thankfully for us tomorrow's Silver Snake win is MUCH better. You can't tell me you don't look forward to it.

It's funny how Season 1 had the most wins, yet I only care about four of them: Galileo, Sultan Saladin, Map to the Lost Gold Mine, and Lawrence of Arabia. The other ones I could care less about or hate. I like most of the Season 2 wins and almost all of the Season 3 wins.

Yeah, those Season 1 wins are the only ones I like too. Then again, Season 1 was a cakewalk compared to Seasons 2 and 3. :roll:

I gave this win an 8. This was a great early Season 1 temple, and great first solo run too. :mrsilver: So what if Lea took a direct path? She still moved fast, and never got turned around again once he left the Wall Climb. Plus, you gotta love Kirk's post run rant asking Lea all sorts of ridiculous questions. :lol: Just let the girl catch her breath and celebrate Kirk! This was a solid run, and Lea was a solid contestant in my book. ;) :mrsilver:

I gave Sultan Saladin an 8. One of the better wins on the show and one of the best wins of Season 1. I can't believe people complain about Lea's performance and win. Lea was fast, smart, and won with a lot of time! I know her strategy to get to the artifact was a little too obvious, but it is not like it had a Golden Ship outcome. I can't believe people called Jennifer from Buddha the better contestant when she moved so slow and looked lost half of the time. Sultan Saladin is a great win and Lea did a solid job for the first solo win ever.  :mrsilver:
