I gave Pirate Captain a 10!  :mrgreen: This was one of the best runs on the whole show that featured the best team ever!  :mrgreen: Jessica and Jarrid were an amazing team in the temple and I don't think there is any layout they could not win (except Discarded Seal). I really wish we saw more teams like the Green Monkeys in this episode. The whole temple run was exciting and amazing, and it is definitely the Green Monkeys best run!  :mrgreen:

I gave Ponce de Leon a 3. This is a run that I use to be indifferent towards, but now I dislike it. James and Jessica were a boring and pretty sucky team in the temple. James might've made it far in the temple, but he wasn't great and he only made it close to the artifact because all of the rooms were easy. Jessica was a sad excuse for a second runner and I could never feel sorry for her. She had a lot of time to reach the room where James was left out. :roll: I will admit that this temple guard layout was very cheap though. But like Lucky Pig, it was definitely winnable but the team missed shortcuts and moved so slow. This is a run that I have little sympathy for now. :roll:

I gave this run a 3. Boring and nothing special.

And Jessica is definitely a player I can never feel sorry for. Short time or not, she just had no idea what she was doing. Kind of reminds me of Rinette from Mata Hari. They were both sucky players.

Seriously, I can't believe anyone would have sympathy for her. James got taken out with 0:39 seconds on the clock, and that should've been enough time to make it where he left off. Jennifer from Blue Pearl took less time to get where Albert was taken out, and she had to ride the slow Well elevator. Plus, Jessica had a shortcut she could've used. But what does she do? She backtracks all the way to the Observatory thinking the Heart Room would open. -______- I do dislike Rinette a little more though because she didn't even try at all and was much older than her partner. :shock:

Yeah, wasn't Rinette like, 14 years old at the time? And Gareth was only 11, and even chubby Garret made better time than her. :shock: I also dislike Rinette a smidgen more because she just didn't try, at all. But Jessica sucked too, and I have very little sympathy for either player.

I gave Empress Eugenie an 8. This was a pretty exciting loss even though this team should've won! :? Too bad, because the temple layout was pretty much set up for them to win. The main reason they lost was because Janeen was way too slow and hesitant. You wonder why Jay was yelling at her like Dana. :roll: Luckily, Jay was one of the best male players on the show and at least grabbed the Watch.  :mrgreen: But they would've won if Janeen got her shit together sooner. Plus, I do enjoy Jay shouting at Janeen and the temple guard that touches her butt in the King's Storeroom. :lol: Disappointing loss, but it was a good performance and memorable run. ;)

Gave it a 7. Should've been a win, but Janeen's hesitancy and the production error in the Jester's Court prevented that.
