Continuing the trend of the "Rate the temple temple runs" like Paintbrush's Purple Parrot thread, I wanted to do one for the Red Jaguars. The Red Jaguars are a team that get a lot of negative and criticism for their temple runs. After all, they were voted as the worst team of Season 1 and Season 2. :oops: It will be interesting to see how their runs are rated. When rating their runs, try to rate them in comparison to other Red Jaguar runs. So that means avoid comparing them to ther teams. ;)

We will first start off with "The Missing Weather Maps of Charles Lindbergh":

I gave Charles Lindbergh a 3. It was a pretty fail temple run. Nick and Kim were a very strong team before the temple, but Kim fell flat on her face in the temple. The first minute of the run was exciting as we watch Nick dominate every single temple room. With more than 2 minutes left, you would think Kim had enough time to reach the Dark Forest and win? Wrong, she does everything she can to screw this run up. This was probably the temple run that pissed me off the most on the show. If it wasn't for Nick and the first minute of the run, then it would probably get the lowest score possible.  :roll:

I also went with a 3 here because Nick and Kim really seemed like a strong team all the way up until the Temple. I don't even know what happened here. But this is rating temple runs, not teams overall. I couldn't go much higher than a 3.

I'm giving this run a 2. I can't believe it would even get a rating higher than that. This temple run was terrible. I hate every aspect of it. :roll:

You can see it in Nick's face at the end of the run how pissed he is. I sure as hell would've been. Kim literally ran past the room with the artifact. -_-

Can you blame him? He leaves her all of two minutes to reach the artifact and win, and Kim blows it. This temple run could've been an amazing win if Nick were paired up with someone different. Why oh why do we expect anything from these Kim contestants? :roll:

I gave Silver Saddle Horn a 4. This was a disappointing temple run just like most Season 1 losses. Vicky made one wrong turn in the temple and it cost her team. Basically, most of the temple run is her just running all over the temple figuring how to move forward. Rewatching this temple run again though, I don't have as much hate for Vicky like I use to. She moved fast in the temple and honestly the Treasure Room should've worked. What was point of the chest if it never worked? :roll: Although this temple run is unremarkable and there is little reason to go back and rewatch it. :?

I felt like it should be somewhere between a 3 and a 4. But I went with a 4 because it wasn't as bad as Missing Weather Maps.

I gave Belshazzar 6. This run was not bad by any means. Sean and Katherine may have not made any progress, but that is NOT their fault in any way. Their layout was brutal and impossible. No team would have success with it. Too bad, because their temple run got postponed once already. At the same time, this run is pretty boring and unremarkable. Which is why it got an average score. But this is nothing against Sean and Katherine. Which is why I didn't give them a lower score because their layout sucked.
