I gave Roland a 7. It was a very easy layout (like most of the Red Jaguars wins), but I still enjoyed the temple run a lot. Yakerra kept a good pace in the temple and finished with a reasonable amount of time on the clock. Granted, she might've not won in tougher layout like Bandit Queen. But I can't shortchange her for her layout she had no control over. Plus, the silliness of the episode like Yakerra holding the spider at the end made it a pretty fun episode to watch. Although the run is kind of overrated. But I like it more than most of the Red Jaguars runs. ;)  :mrred:

I also gave it a 7, though I think even that is too generous. Yakerra was a good player, and it was a good run, but it is really, really overrated. Her performance isn't all that impressive honestly.

I gave Captain John Smith a 5. There is nothing remarkable about this temple run. It wasn't a bad run, but it wasn't very good either and the outcome was pretty disappointing. Derrick and Whitney were both slow, and she should've found that half-pendant. Not that it mattered, they wouldn't have won. Probably their most average episode next to Stone Marker. ;)

I gave it a 4. Absolute snorefest and Whitney deserved to lose after passing up the painfully obvious half pendant. I hate this temple run, even Stone Marker was more memorable than this. No sympathy. :roll:

Yeah, I always felt that Whitney should've found that half-pendant. Some people seem to sympathize with her for passing her half-pendant because of where it was located on an inactive actuator. But really, the only team that deserves a free pass is Missing Eye in Season 2. She should've found it.

No kidding. If a half pendant is in CLEAR sight and hanging on an actuator, then you should be able to pick it up. How anyone can say they don't blame her for not finding it is beyond me.

This run reminds me almost like Stone Head. Frontrunner is removed in Medusa's Lair, second runner faces four snakes Medusa's Lair and screws up after that room, and slow team in general. Except Tony blew his load more in the Stone Head run. Not that the Lost Love Letter run was any better. Whitney was so slow and her Medusa's Lair was not that much better either. Derrick should've gone in second.

I gave Golden Ship a 4. This temple run is very unremarkable because John and Tia only lasted 4 rooms. But I can't entirely fault them because the temple guard layout sucked and the half-pendant was no where in sight. If they had all 3 minutes to themselves, they would probably finish one room away. But they still moved so slow and having 1:30 on the clock after 4 rooms is not really impressive. But this temple run never really bothered me though.

Wait, you don't blame John and Tia for their atrocity? ;)

And I also gave them a 4. Unexciting run all around, quick triple capture or not.

*Gabby and Joe, NOT John and Tia. :oops: They look like Jessica and Jarrid compared to those two. :oops:

But there is nothing special about this temple run either way like you mentioned. I mean no one really wants to watch a team travel through 4 rooms for half a temple run. I think I have seen this temple run like two times. :oops:

I haven't seen the temple run or full episode that much either. Pretty boring temple run, and both players were too slow. I mean, taking 1:30 to travel through four rooms? Not fast at all. Though Gabby and Joe were MUCH better than John and Tia. In every aspect. :oops:
