Another team rating topic!  :mrgreen: I know there is one already going on for the Blue Barracudas, but that one is almost over with. Plus, the Green Monkeys are a special team too and I would like to rate their runs. Especially since they have a lot of strong runs. ;) You know the drill now too. Like most rating topics, we will rate the runs on a score of 1-10. Remember to rate them on how they compare to other runs for that team only. ;)

First off will be "The Plumed Headdress of Cosa Rara". This was picked randomly BTW. I would never start off with such an awful run.  :afro:

I gave "Cosa Rara" a 2. I hate this temple run with a passion, and it is all because of a slow and lost cause runner named Jessica. :x She blew her run big time, especially when Jarrid cleared out a nice path for her with more than enough time. I feel like this run doesn't get the criticism it deserves. Everyone complains about contestants like Karisa, Kim, and Jackie for being slow second runners. But Jessica was just as bad as them but I hardly ever hear anyone complain about her. I know the layout was long, but it was like an easier layout for "Lost Hornpipe" and that Green Monkeys team won.  :mrgreen: This was one of the worst Green Monkeys temple run after "Dried Apple Half". :roll: Also, it was so BORING. :x

But aren't the Purple Parrots a special team too? Come on, the "loser team" label means nothing. ;)

And I gave this run a 3. Boring run, and Jessica was too slow. :roll:

Oh yeah, the Purple Parrots are special for being the underdog team.  :mrpurple: The Green Monkeys though had the most temple appearances. Basically, every other day will be a S3 run since it accounted for 15/25 times in the temple. :lol:

And Cosa Rara is so boring and forgettable. Probably Green's worst run after Xerxes. :roll:

Xerxes and Dried Apple Half were even worse to me. Though Cosa Rara gladly takes third place. :roll:

And I really need to get started on my rehash topic of "Rate the Failed Escapes." Maybe tomorrow night, I'm too lazy to do it now. :lol:

I gave Lion-Slashed Jacket a 5. I have nothing really to say about this run, except that it was very average and boring. I don't hate this run at all, but I could care less about it too. This is probably Green's most forgettable run. Lauren and Mike were slow players themselves, but at least they made it one room away. But still a boring and lackluster run. :roll:

I gave it a 4. Pretty boring and lackluster run. Lauren and Mike really should've at least reached the jacket.

They should've even won this layout. This run was exactly like Pirate Captain, except the artifact was in a different room. Lauren moved way too slow as a frontrunner. And Mike stalled a few times when following her path. If he had those 5 extra seconds, they would've reached the Jacket.

Yeah, they should've won too. Their loss was completely inexcusable. Whatever, better than Xerxes at least. :roll:

I gave Ahmed Baba a 10. :mrgreen: One of the most groundbreaking wins ever on the show! It is better than runs like Pirate Captain and Apanuugpak. :mrgreen:

All jokes aside, I give this run a 5. Aside from being a win, there is nothing interesting or exciting about this win. Shane's layout was extremely generous and most any average contestants would've won. Plus, Kirk's commentary was extremely annoying too. I would go as far as to say I like Trojan Horseshoe more than this win. I don't mind if people like it, but it is no where as a good as Freydis or Annie Taylor. ;)

Extreme vitoral warning.

Anyways, I gave Ahmed Baba a 3. I'm sorry, but I absolutely HATE this temple run. :roll: I hate it. I hate it so fucking much. This temple run is overpraised, overrated, unexciting, and extremely forgettable. Shane was just lucky with his layout, any idiot with the IQ of 2 could've won. :roll:
