I gave this win a perfect 10. :mrgreen: This temple run was solid. It comes with everything you look for in a temple run. Excitement, fast competent players, and a nailbiter ending. All you need to know was that David was a flawless player, had the best exit plan in the shows history, and escaped with just one second left on the clock. Nickelodeon definitely did something right by airing this whole episode first. What an excellent temple run and episode. This is easily the best win of Season 1, with the previously covered John Sutter being a close second. :mrblue: :mrgreen:

Yeah I gave it a 10 too. I probably should have given John Sutter a 10 as well. But oh well, too late now.
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

Lawrence of Arabia gets a 10 from me! After Annie Taylor, this is my second favorite win on the show.  :mrgreen: The temple run was very exciting even though it was a Season 1 run. Candace laid out a god path for her partner, and David simply kicked ass. He moved swiftly through all his temple rooms and his temple exit was the most exciting and best on the show. Even better than the wonderful Bobby. ;) Like I said in the past, this win literally kept me on the edge of my seat and I didn't expect David to pull it off. But he made it with one second left, and the team was very enthusiastic about their win at the end! Great first win by Nickelodeon indeed. :mrgreen:

He was definitely better than the wonderful amazing Bobby. I mean, Bobby escaped from the temple in 53 seconds, and David escaped in 27 seconds. And might I add David had a longer path in the temple? That's amazing! If only exit plans could've been more like the ones David made. I also agree that this win kept me at the edge of my seat. Where you think, "Is he really gonna make it? He has just under 30 seconds left." And sure enough, he did. This is probably my third favorite win behind Lost Hornpipe and Lucky Pillow. :mrblue: :mrgreen:

Lawrence of Arabia is also my favorite one second win out of the four on the show. The other three were great too, but I love Lawrence of Arabia a little more.  :mrgreen: It always bothered me that people called this win "average" or David an "average player" just because it was a Season 1 run. Yeah, the rooms might've been easier than the Season 3 temple. But I don't think any less of this run either. Great win, and it ranks up there with Pirate Captain and Annie Taylor for me too. ;)  :mrgreen:

Lawrence of Arabia is also my favorite one second win. Though some people have called it a "two second win" before. But for me, it's just easier to remember it as a "one second win," since the ending was so close after all. I mean, one second, two seconds, same difference. I call it a one second win. I'm just not as picky as others when it comes to actual time. ;) But yeah, Lawrence of Arabia is my third favorite win. Lost Hornpipe would be second, and Lucky Pillow would be my absolute favorite. :mrblue: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Not too many differences from last time to now, but there were some averages that dropped considerably. There were only four wins (Applewood Amulet, Roland, Secret Map and Enormous Iron Nose Ring) that got a bigger boost. The biggest boost in average goes to Roland, with a 1.75 point increase. Going from a mere 4.75 average to a 6.50 average from last time to now. :mrred: The biggest drop in averages is Geronimo, with a whopping 3.00 drop. It got a 4.00 last time, and got a solid 1.00 this time around. Other wins such as Very Tall Turban, Genghis Khan, and Apanuugpak suffered some drops in averages as well. The only two wins to get a solid 10 average was Lost Hornpipe and Lucky Pillow. :mrblue: :mrgreen: Last time, only Apanuugpak got a solid 10 average. Other than that, most of the averages stayed around the same as last time. This chart can pretty much do all the talking. ;)

And, that's it. :mrgreen: Thank you everyone for participating in this rehash thread, and for taking the time to vote for all 32 wins this show had. I hope you guys had just as much fun participating in this poll as I did. All final thoughts and special thanks to me can go in here. ;)

Thank you for rehashing this. Paintbrush! It always fun visiting the wins again and praising the ones that deserve more recognition (Chandragupta, Galileo, Applewood Amulet) and maligning the ones that get too much praise (Shaka Zulu, Butch Cassidy, Moccasins). It is nice to see some wins like Chandragupta and Bandit Queen getting higher scores than they originally got. It is also nice to see Shaka Zulu finishing with the lowest score overall.  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:

Don't forget the likes of Geronimo and Silk Ladder getting the same 1.00 average as well. ;) And man, updating the above chart was MUCH easier than in the rooms thread. :lol: Probably because a chart was already made for me, and all I had to do was cut and paste. Thanks Stone Marker for saving me an hour in making a chart from scratch. :mrred: And yay to Shaka Zulu for getting a solid 1 average too. :mrred:
