I can't believe I didn't include Butch Cassidy on the list. That's definitely another Season 2 win I dislike. :oops:

And I agree, Season 1 only had four good wins, Season 2 had a lot of good wins, and I like all the Season 3 wins. It definitely goes to show how much stronger the quality of wins got as each season passed. And speaking of Roland, that one is coming up tomorrow. ;)

I went with a 5 because this run is just slightly better than the ones I had previously given 4s and 3s to. It's not bad. It's just also not good. So it lands right in the middle for me.

I gave this run a 7. It was a great effort by Yakerra, but I wasn't entirely sold on it like the rest of the wins from Season 3. It felt way too generous, especially considering the last win before this one was Bandit Queen, filmed four days back. Plus, if Yakerra hadn't stalled in some rooms, then she probably would've shattered Shaka Zulu's record. On the other hand, this quick win is MUCH better than Shaka Zulu, and Yakerra did earn her win fair and square. Some would even say THIS was the actual legit "quickest win ever." And I can't help but agree with that honestly. This was one of the better runs Season 3 had, but I felt like it was a little too easy for me. Oh well, Yakerra did a decent job either way. ;)

I gave Roland a 6. Even though it seems like I always give this win a hard time, I still enjoy it and Yakerra earned her win. She kept up a good pace in the time and finished with the second fastest time ever! And the whole temple run was pretty fun to with Kraig's cheering and Yakerra's enthusiasm at the end. On the downside, the layout was piss easy for Season 3 standards. So it is understandable that Yakerra had one of the fastest times. Imagine if Zac from Bandit Queen had this layout? We might've had a win with 2 minutes left. :mrsilver: But you can't really choose your layouts, and Yakerra didn't do anything wrong. I find this run a little overrated, but I appreciate much more than Shaka Zulu. I wish Yakerra's win had the fastest time, not the dumb luck Shaka Zulu run.  :oops:

Yeah, if only Yakerra really did destroy Shaka Zulu's time. Then nobody would call Bobby "the best player ever" anymore. But yeah, while I do find this run a tad overrated, I definitely prefer it over Shaka Zulu. And Zac would've destroyed this layout had he gotten it instead. Same with Gator. That would be a 2+ minute finish for sure. :shock:

I am glad Gator and Zac didn't get this layout though. Then people would bash them and complain like they do about Joel having an easy layout. But boy, they would definitely destroy Roland's layout. :o

Plus, Joel probably would've beat Shaka Zulu's time too if he didn't scale the whole central shaft on his way out of the temple. But yeah, Gator and Zac would've demolished a layout like Roland. And I have a feeling this win is gonna score much higher this time around. It's not my favorite win by any means, but as long as it's not precious little Shaka Zulu, it shouldn't finish with an average too low. ;)

I never hated Roland on the same level as Shaka Zulu or Geronimo. I don't mind it as long as it doesn't get too much love. Just like Nose Ring, it is still a fun win to watch and never gets old. Although it definitely is the weakest win of Season 3. But that doesn't make it bad, but the other wins were better.  ;)

Yeah, Roland would probably be my "least favorite" win of Season 3. It's still a good win, but it just doesn't measure up as much as the other wins do. But yeah, as long as it's not too overhyped, I won't have a problem with it. It's pretty much on the same tier as Nose Ring. It's a solid win, but not my favorite. But still fun to watch nonetheless. ;)

I gave Roland a 7. Solid solo win. Gets too much flack sometimes. It's no Annie Taylor, Chandragupta, or even Gawain, but it's still good.

I gave this win a 9. This to me, was a solid solo win. Despite Ty's dropping of his pendant, he was a great player and moved very swiftly through every room he entered, not getting turned around even once. Not only that, but I also loved Jennifer's enthusiasm from the sidelines. Even Kirk was excited and genuinely happy for him. This was one of the very few Orange Iguana runs I like, and this is also the only male solo victory that I like. I sort of like Nostradamus better, but this Orange Iguanas win was awesome too. :mrorange:

I gave Lucky Medallion a 10! One of my most favorite wins on the show, and by far my most favorite Orange Iguanas win. This win was both very and exciting and memorable. Ty enters the temple with the team's only pendant, but he drops it (by accident, Youtube) at the temple gates. Just as he enters the Ledges, "Jennifer" throws it back at him just at the right moment or else he would've been removed ala Mummified Hand! The rest of the way, he cleverly takes the high road and doesn't meet another guard at all and wins with an almost down to the wire ending. Kirk's enthusiasm as well as the Orange Iguanas at the end makes this a special win. A great performance and solid win like the other wins from this day. ;)  :mrorange:

And what a great filming day it was too. Every win on that day was very exciting and memorable, and Atocha was no exception. ;) :mrorange:
