That's what I should/should've given it. He's not even the only contestant to go through THAT many rooms. Win or no win.

The thing that bothers me about Ahmed Baba is that it seems like we are bad guys for criticizing Shane for taking a long path. Yet, people always malign Jarrid from Pirate Captain for his Secret Password detour and someone even argued that Jessica and Jarrid were lucky even to win. I wouldn't have a problem with this win so much if people could make an argument about why Shane is a good contestant aside from winning. It is an episode that gets mentioned way too much ad I am sick of hearing about it.  :roll:

Yeah, and you also forgot to mention how this used to happen a lot in the past too. And better idea! Let's bring down our favorites like Tony from Billy the Kid, and call him a bad player just because of ONE MISTAKE he made at the end of the run. And let's compare him to fucking Icarus too. :roll: Even if it weren't for us being called bad guys, I would still hate this win and call it overrated. There's literally nothing special about this run, AT ALL. :roll:

And FYI, I am not going to update this poll tonight, I'll keep it open until the night of July 5. It's my birthday, and frankly, I don't feel obligated to update any poll that's just gonna get bad reviews anyways.  So this poll will be open through July 5. Maybe this will give everyone plenty of time to vote. Sorry to keep everyone waiting with this win. Believe me, I wouldn't have mentioned or talked about this win at all if it weren't for this poll. If this is an inconvenience to you, I'll update it after all.

I gave this win a 6. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. It's kind of just "there." Lucretia and Shawn were competent players, and they did do a good job scoring the first ever Green Monkeys win, but there's just no excitement to it. Meh, just give me tomorrow's win please.

I gave Trojan Horseshoe a 7. It definitely wasn't one of the most exciting wins on the show, but the team handled their layout fine and scored the first Green Monkeys win. I definitely don't see how this win is comparable to John Sutter though. Damien and Jennifer's win was much more memorable and exciting than Trojan Horseshoe. At the end of the day though, Lucretia and Shawn didn't do anything wrong in the temple and their path was reasonable for a Season 1 team. Which is why I didn't give them that low of a score.

John Sutter is not in ANY WAY comparable to Trojan Horseshoe. Like others liked to claim in the past. Sure the layouts were similar, but John Sutter was MUCH more exciting, and had faster players too. Just another reason to pick on John Sutter I'm assuming.

I went with a 6. I thought 5 was too low but I can't go as high as a 7 for this win. And comparisons to John Sutter?! Really?!?!

I think people compare them because both had similar paths to the Tomb. Except they weren't really that similar anyways. Damian was taken out much more early than Lucretia. Jennifer had to take a longer path than Shawn, and she seemed to move faster too. Although Shawn was not bad at all either, and he even had a pretty quick Silver Monkey assembly. But I like Jennifer more than him. Other than that, I really have no problem with the Trojan Horseshoe. I definitely like it better than Ahmed Baba too. ;)  :mrgreen:

It's silly of anyone to think that John Sutter and Trojan Horseshoe are comparable AT ALL. Jennifer lasted longer in the temple, had a slightly altered path, and it was MUCH more memorable then utterly boring Trojan Horseshoe. This is just another reason for *coughTHKcough* to hate John Sutter. Yeah, let's overpraise other contestants, just to make our least favorites look bad. Remind me again why Jennifer didn't even get a 5 rating in the player rankings thread? Yeah, NOW we show excitement for Trojan Horseshoe. :roll: Sorry to rant, but this bias some people have/had is so tired and ridiculous. :roll:

And with a 6.25 average, I'm ending the poll for "Trojan Horseshoe" right now.

Up next is "The Milk Bucket of Freydis." :mrpurple:

I gave this win a perfect 10. I was gonna give it a 9, but I actually think a 10 is more suitable. This run was excellent! Who cares if Tarrah wasn't fast or got confused on the top floor? She got the job done handily, even AFTER taking that nasty fall in the Pit. All with a single second left on the clock, all by herself. I much prefer this run to Buddha because Tarrah had a harder layout, was more competent, and her run was more exciting. I may even go as far as saying this was THE best Purple Parrot run ever. Excellent job, Tarrah! You earned this win. ;) :mrpurple:

I gave Freydis a 10 too before even coming into this topic.  :mrpurple: Tarrah's win was very exciting and I have to say that this is the biggest underdog victory on the show. This is a perfect example of how a win can be strong without having a Gator-like player on the show. Even then, Tarrah completed her rooms at a good pace. She definitely deserves credit for taking a hit in the Pit and recovering from it while scoring a last second win. Not even Jason from Icarus could pull off victory despite having more time and no accidents in the Pit. I love Freydis and it trumps Buddha in every way. One of the best wins on the show.  :mrpurple:

Yeah, and I was gonna say, Tarrah was SUCH a trooper scoring a solo win after jumping across that huge pit. She even broke the Milk Bucket in the process. :lol: Plus, she had to be easily the shortest contestant on the show. Her Purple Parrot T shirt literally went down to her knees. :shock: Either way, this was easily one of the, if not the strongest win on the show. :mrpurple: :mrpink:

Ahhhhhh, I went back and forth between a 9 and a 10. I really wish there was a 9.5. But I went with a 10. Tarrah was a badass.
