I gave Buddha a 6. This temple win is pretty boring and uneventful. Jennifer was an alright contestant, but the win really shouldn't have been this close. Maybe it would've helped if she didn't move so slow through every room and get lost in the Treasure Room. I am starting to feel that this win is a little overrated too. I don't have a problem with it, but I just don't think that Jennifer is the "best player ever". There were a lot of more exciting Barracuda runs.

Vote change enabled. And gave the run a 5. Nothing special, and really overrated. Freydis was better.

I gave Red Sash an 8. This was a pretty exciting loss, but Brandy and Quentin really should've won. Brandy was too hesitant as a front runner and entered too many unnecessary rooms and objectives. Quentin was too hesitant too and had enough time to grab the Red Sash and maybe even win. Despite the mistakes, the temple run was pretty exciting and close. Plus, the layout was pretty brutal and the team did a good job. One of the Blue Barracudas best losses. ;)

Sorry, but this is getting a 5 from me. This run was extremely boring, and Brandy and Quentin made too many mistakes. There's no excuse for their losses, this run was way too flawed. This is not one of the best Blue Barracudas runs at all. This run was such a snore, and I don't like it at all. No offense, but giving it an 8 is way too high. It was a decent run, but it wasn't THAT great. :roll:

I thought you loved this run? :o I do agree that it lacks the excitement of over runs from the same room space like Polynesian Girl and Good-Luck Watch. But I thought it was a pretty strong performance. I gave it a good score because of how close Brandy and Quentin came to close of reaching a bottom of the central shaft artifact despite entering every room. Better than Electrified Key at least. ;)

Nah, I always thought it was boring. Too many mistakes caused this to be a loss, and it really turned me off. Though it is pretty much THE only Blue Barracuda run that has something going for it, so I guess there's that. My favorite Blue Barracuda loss is Atahualpa personally. And coincidentally it was the only failed escape for the Barracudas. ;)

I agree with you there. Golden Jaguar is also my favorite Barracuda loss. It feels even a little underrated because no one really talks about it. One of the few Season 1 episode and runs I even like.  :mrblue:

Yeah, it is underrated. The only mistake that was made was Chris detouring into the Heart Room. I even ranked all the players in this episode too a few months ago. And all the players scored pretty well. Atahualpa is easily one of the better Season 1 episodes. :mrblue:
