But even with four snakes, it shouldn't take well over a minute completing the objective. Even Whitney from Lost Love Letter wasn't that bad. And I personally didn't think Heather was that great either. She not only took a direct path, she also moved pretty slow. Stone Marker pretty much hit the nail on the head above.

I have Geronimo a 4. There is no win that I hate more than this one right here. :roll: I never understood what people thought was remarkable about this run. Was it because it was the only time the treasure chest worked? That is my only conclusion. I hate this win because it is the most overrated win (next to Shaka Zulu), and the amount of praise it gets is insufferable. :roll: Mitchell literally walks through the temple the whole time and still finishes with over a minute left. What does that tell you about his win? Oh yeah, he put the Silver Monkey together... after he grabbed the Moccasins. :roll: It was better than some Barracuda runs, but I could care less about it. :|

But it's still a bad win. Mitchell just got lucky because wait for it.... the treasure chest just happened to open that day. And don't give me that "HE PLANNED IT!!!!" crap. Any other player would've opened the chest, and we still would've creamed our pants over it. Mitchell just happened to get lucky, and the chest just happened to be opened that day. And he instantly lost my respect by assembling the monkey on his way OUT with the artifact. I would go as far as saying it's just as bad as Shaka Zulu and Silk Ladder honestly.

Yeah, I hate Geronimo with a passion. Unlike Shaka Zulu and Silk Ladder, people praised this win and ranked it among the best. But yet they criticize runs like Sir Gawain and Nose Ring where there was actually strong players. With that being said, Geronimo finishes with a 3.50. :oops:

Next up is "The Silk Sash of Mulan".  :oops:

I gave Silk Sash a 3. I am sorry, I find this temple run both pathetic and overrated. I don't understand how people could feel sorry for Jessie and Stephen. It was their own fault that they made crappy progress. They moved slow through every room and had no sense of direction. Perhaps Stephen should've completed the Observatory objective the right way and they might've actually reached the Sash. Although I do find the temple run entertaining at least. Each temple guard encounter was hilarious, so that sort of saved this run from getting a lower score than usual. ;)

I gave it a 2. Terrible temple run in every single aspect. No sympathy. How can anyone feel even remotely sorry for them? :roll:

I use to be indifferent towards this run, but now I can say that I hate it. :roll: Mostly because this team never got criticized while other teams that actually made it far in the temple (Dolley Madison) got hate all the time. An it is not even a forgettable run either in my eyes. :o

Plus, the team barely scraped by all episode. I mean, look at how long it takes for Jessie to even cross the moat. :shock:

I gave Pearl Necklace a 6. I have nothing to really say about this run. It was uneventful and Ryan and Dawn were just an average team. But they did make it one room away with a layout that was sort of lengthy. They should've reached the Necklace at least, but I don't have any problem with this one really.

I also gave it a 6. Boring, unless you count Ryan's rubble clearing in the Pit. Since we all just "love" direct tricks.
