I'm sorry, what? People actually dissed her? I like Andrea, and I love her temple run. I don't even remember anyone who dissed her in the past. Unless you somehow remember.

It wasn't a outright diss like Lea or Jennifer have received. It was more on the line of people being nitpicky like "Oh, Andrea moved a little slow while going down the slide" and the likes. You know, the same people that like to point out how Jarrid missed the Quicksand Bog and Olivia-Emma missed her half-pendant. ;)

Plus, she used to get eliminated in the old game threads relatively early because she "wasn't that great." Nowadays her spot in the Top 5 in any elimination game is pretty much a sealed deal. :mrgreen:

Andrea is a badass. Chandragupta gets a solid 10 from me and I would give it an 11 if I could. I love this episode. It's perfect. The only episode that overshadows this one for me is Annie Taylor.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

I gave this win an 8. To me, this was a solid temple run. Who cares if the layout was easy? It was nice to see the Purple Parrots at long last score a MUCH needed win. And it took them almost two whole seasons to accomplish that too. This episode was PP Pwnage all the way through, and Kelly and Tony were equally as strong in the temple too. It even came right after another PP Pwnage episode too, (Leopard Skin Cloak), and the fact that they won and not Chandra and Nick just made this win that much better. :mrpurple: Tony was especially a strong player, and he doesn't deserve any of the criticism he gets for his delay exiting the temple. Nor does he deserve to be compared to Jason form Icarus. Tony just made one mistake at the end of the run, Jason sucked from the beginning. Regardless, Kelly and Tony were a great team, and they deserved to win. :mrpurple:

Billy the Kid was a great first win for the Purple Parrots and you couldn't have asked for a better way to win. The layout may have been easy, but there is more to a win than just the layout. The "Purple Parrot Pwnage" storyline alone made this win memorable and it was hard not to root for Kelly and Tony. They dominated every round to get to the temple and then proceeded to win the temple run! The win itself ha some flaws like Tony's exit plan, but it was still a solid performance. People say it would've been nice to see the Purple Parrots win in Butch Cassidy or Shaka Zulu, but I am glad that they didn't win in those episodes. It would've made Billy the Kid less magical. I am going to give this one an 8 too.  :mrpurple:

Yeah, no team deserves to win Shaka Zulu better than the Red Jaguars. (I forgot the Green Monkeys were in the temple games. :oops:)

Yeah, because the Red Jaguars get all the "best wins" right? :P

But yeah, I agree. If the Parrots had won in Silk Ladder and/or Butch Cassidy instead of Billy the Kid, then it would've made Billy the Kid feel less special. On the opposite end of that, if the Leopard Skin Cloak kids had won just like Kelly and Tony, then it would've been PP Pwnage ten fold. :mrpurple: :mrpink:

I gave our favorite :roll: smiley train win a 1. This was easily the simplest layout this show has ever seen, and Erica and Jeremy make it out to be a BIG task due to moving like rocks. I can't really fault Erica since she was rather speedy. But fatty Jeremy annoyed me the most. I also hated how smug he acted as he crossed the finish line. I'm sure it was SO exhausting pressing what, two actuators in the temple. :roll: This is easily the worst win ever, any team would've won with this layout. Just give me tomorrow's win please. :roll: :roll:
