I gave this run a 9. This is by far my favorite Silver Snake run on the entire show. :mrsilver: Yes Miriam hesitated, and yes this team would've lost if it wasn't for Zac. But other than that, this win was nothing short of awesome! Once Miriam was (thankfully) removed from the temple, Zac REALLY hauled ass to grab the map and escape. I swear, Zac was moving so fast it had to be a record. :o This was one of the best wins on the whole show, and Zac is by far one of my favorite contestants ever! I love this win, it totally deserves all the love that it gets. :mrsilver:

Bandit Queen is a great win, but I am going to give it a 7. Miriam really brings this run down a lot unfortunately. She wasted too much time acting like Karisa by backtracking between the Dark Forest. I am surprised Zac wasn't shouting at her like Jay. :? Luckily, Zac saved this run from being another Snow Cone run by running at an amazing speed! It was very fun to watch him blaze through the temple and then have an amazing exit. Honestly, if more contestants moved like Zac did, then even layouts like Discarded Seal might be winnable. The reason I didn't rate it higher was because of Miriam. It is one thing to be moving average like Amanda or Candace in their wins. But you should not be screwing around in the short time in the temple. But still, this is the Silver Snakes best win and Zac was the highlight of this episode. :mrsilver:

Zac DID shout at Miriam. He said so in his interview, but it was never heard on the show. ;)

I'm thinking of changing my vote to an 8. Maybe 9 was a little too high, but the only "point" I took of was Miriam's hesitations.

Which is fine. I guess I just think of 9s as runs that are legendary and 2nd only to runs like Annie Taylor and Lawrence of Arabia.

This is the one win I wouldn't expect to get a 10 from anyone. :o Not that I should be surprised because Bandit Queen is loved around here. (for good reasons of course!). I would definitely give Zac a 10 in the temple for his performance also.  :mrsilver: I would've gave this run a 9 if Miriam wasn't close to blowing her load.

So maybe changing my vote was a mistake?

Maybe I should've kept it a 9. Since this was a GREAT win, and one of my first episodes. So it's really nostalgic for me.

I changed my vote for Bandit Queen for an 8 myself. Looking at these upcoming wins, this one is easily better than most of them. It totally deserves to rank high. Tomorrow is going to be interesting with Iron Nose Ring too.
