I gave Two-Cornered Hat an 8. This is one of the Red Jaguars best temple runs on the show after Catherine the Great and maybe Queen Boadicea. Even though Brian and Carly made a couple of mistakes, their fast speed made this temple run exciting. Carly should've tried the Mine Shaft-Shrine shortcut though and they might've won. But it was a good effort and this run is pretty exciting.  :mrred:

I also gave it an 8. This is one of the very few Red Jaguar runs I even like. :mrred:

I went with a 7. I'm trying to be consistent throughout all of these "rate the run for each team" threads. So even though this is a stronger Red Jaguars run, it's not elite to me. If that makes sense.

I honestly think this is the best Red Jaguars loss. The only runs I like from the Red Jaguars are Two Cornered Hat, Jeweled Necklace, and Jewel Encrusted Egg. The rest are either forgettable or terrible.

The only Red Jaguar runs that are good in my mind are Napoleon, Catherine the Great, Montezuma, Genghis Khan, and Queen Boadicea. Moving on now, Two-Cornered Hat finishes with a 7.50.  :mrred:

Next up is "The Helmet of Joan of Arc".  :mrred:

I gave Joan of Arc a 6. It was just your typical Season 1 loss where the second runner moves slow an ruins it for the team. But center of the temple runs are always tricky and this run is plain average. I don't have any real hate for it either, which is why I didn't give it a lower score. Mandy shouldn't have used the Well elevator though. But there are way worse Red Jaguar runs than this one.

I gave it a 6. Nothing special.

And the title of this thread is still "Two Cornered Hat." Fixed in the OP. And you never actually voted in the poll.

Joan of Arc finishes with a 5.50. ;)

Next up is "The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass".  :oops:

I gave Smashed Printing Plate a 2. This was one of the most annoying runs on the show. Jason and Dana were an incompetent team and I can't see how anyone could defend them. Jason was too slow and clueless in the temple, and he missed a vital shortcut. I don't see how he was remotely good at all. Dana screwed up with her little time in the temple by taking the wrong door in the Ledges. :roll: And seriously, STFU DANA!!!!!  :x  :x  :x  :x This layout was not hard at all and a team like Red Sash and Queen Boadicea would win it.  :roll:

I also gave it a 2. This team DID NOT deserve to go to the temple. Jason is a player I'll never feel sorry for. Just because you assemble the monkey in record time, doesn't make you an amazing player who deserves unwarranted pity. But lets compare him to Tiffani because backtracking rooms is just a silly honest mistake. Because hey, Tiffani did the exact same thing, remember? And I DO NOT only hate him just because of his cheating in the temple games. Some people need to stop assuming that's the only reason we hate Jason. Even if he didn't cheat, I would still hate him. I have no sympathy for this terrible run, and Jason deserves criticism. It's stupid of people to defend him. Should've been the Purple Parrots. :roll:

I totally agree. I hated Jason since day one and I can't understand why someone would defend. Sure, he had a fast Silver Monkey assembly. But so did other S3 boys - Mike from Thornwood Gavel and Sacagawea, Gator, Jarrid, Jay, Jared from Imperial Wizard, Nate, and Josh from Mummified Hand. Why doesn't that get mentioned too when we talk about them? Everything else he did was a mistake and he kept screwing around. The only reason I didn't give this run a 1 is because a couple of other ones deserve it more. I hated this temple run since I first watched it.  :evil:

Wait, Jared from Mystical Spellbook had a fast monkey assembly? I thought that was Josh from Mummified Hand.

But yeah, Jason gets defended for all the stupidest reasons. He backtracks back to the Chamber for no reason, yet Tiffani somehow did the same thing? Tiffani only backtracked to the back most suit or armor, not back to the Chamber altogether. Two completely different things. But just because he assembles the monkey fast, boom that means he gets undeserved praise? And his monkey assembly was not even that impressive at all. All the players you mentioned above did a MUCH better job at it than Jason did. And backtracking rooms wasn't the only mistake Jason made, like some people like to claim. He missed the Shrine/Forest passage, tried to climb up the Quicksand Bog ladder, and then takes his sweet time in the Dark Forest. Of course, Dana spent the whole run running her mouth, and then contributed nothing to the temple run. Even with that little time she had left. But that doesn't mean Jason isn't to blame either. I hate everything about this run. I actually think it does deserve a 1 in a way.
