I gave Golden Jaguar an 8. This was the Blue Barracudas only failed escape run, and it was pretty exciting and quirky. The beginning was pretty memorable with Chris running into the space between the Cave of Sighs. :lol: After he corrected himself, he made the unfortunate mistake of entering the Heart Room which ended to be a double whammy dead end and temple guard. He made it all the way to the Shrine, and got removed with over a minute. Tracy was a solid second runner and she made up good time. She grabbed the Jaguar with two seconds left, but it was the best she could do. Overall, this was a good team and one of the few good Season 1 episodes. I love the quirkiness of this run and the close artifact grab.  :mrblue:

Another 8 here. :mrblue: This is probably the only Blue Barracudas loss I even like.

The Blue Barracudas don't have a lot of great losses honestly. Most of them are either really boring, or just plain bad. Atahualpa is the only Blue Barracuda that's even remotely interesting. And coincidentally enough, it's the only failed escape the Blue Barracudas had.

I like Red Sash too even though Brandy and Quentin made too many mistakes. At least they almost grabbed a bottom of the central shaft artifact too with a tough layout. But yeah, Golden Jaguar is their only real solid loss.  :mrblue:

Red Sash is good too, but it doesn't have the excitement factor that Atahualpa has. The latter was especially memorable for Chris' detour behind Olmec, and for the last second grab. Red Sash is only memorable for the Shrine/Secret Password door being opened the entire time. Regardless, Atahualpa is my favorite Blue Barracuda loss. :mrblue:

I gave Annie Taylor a 1. :roll: One of the easiest wins featuring the luckiest girl ever. Did Missy really think the direct path work? Never mind the fact you won the first ever center of the temple win, that one mistake alone makes you below the rest. :roll:

All jokes aside, I gave Annie Taylor a 10! :mrblue: This was easily the best Blue Barracuda run. Everything you love about LoTHT is jam-packed in this one temple run. It was very memorable, exciting, and Missy was a strong player. Her performance was solid and I will love it until the day I die. You can hate on it all you want, my opinion of it will never change.  :mrblue:  :mrblue:

I gave Jean Lafitte a 2. One of the most boring and forgettable Blue Barracudas runs on the show. Terry Kay and Aaron were a horrible team that made pathetic progress in the temple. I know some people blame the Troubled Bridge holding them back, but that was incompetence on Aaron's part for not trying hard. And Terry Kay was stupid for taking an alternate path with only a half-pendant. Horrible run that deserves to be maligned more like Silk Sash.  :oops:
