I gave Sforza an 8. This may have not been the best win, but Lacey and Asher were a good team and gave us a memorable run. And their layout was hardly easy when they had to face the most challenging rooms of Season 1. Even if their win was sort of handed it on a silver platter, it was still a fun run and it deserves the praise it gets.  :mrgreen:

I also gave it an 8. Great win, even if it was a little bit on the easy side. Plus, I love Lacey and Asher's enthusiasm when they won. :mrgreen:

I usually wait until Brent gets a chance to vote, but I want to move on because the general consensus is that Sforza deserves a solid 8.  :mrgreen: If Brent wants to place a vote though for this run, he can do it next time he visits. ;)

Next up is "The Trojan Horseshoe".  :mrgreen:

Episode: "The Trojan Horseshoe"
Artifact Location: Tomb of the Ancient Kings
Players: Shawn and Lucretia
Pendants: 1.5
Outcome: Won!

I gave the Trojan Horseshoe a 7. It is definitely not the strongest Green Monkeys win on the show, but it was still a respectable and solid win. I mean Shawn and Lucretia didn't do a single thing wrong, and it was a good team effort. Although it wasn't a very exciting or memorable run. But in a season where there were a lot of bad teams, this run had a better outcome and team.

Yeah, I've been waiting for Brent to log in here and cast these votes too. These polls are dead. All thanks to me and my leaving for a month. =/

And I gave this run a 5. Boring, uninspiring, unimpressive. I don't know why you ranked this a 7. Next. =/

I have a question regarding Brent's Sforza vote (next time TRJ logs in here): How can you incorporate his vote and recalculate the average? Although everyone else who voted in the poll gave it an 8. So I guess it isn't too hard to do. But still, keep that in mind for future references.

If you notice next to each run, I keep track of how many votes each episode gets. If you want to adjust the vote, take the current score and multiply the current number of votes. After that, take that number and add the new vote. Then divide that number by the new number of votes. For example...

Sforza's Current Score = 8.00
# of votes = 3
8 x 3 = 24
Brett's vote = 7
7+24 = 31
31/ votes = 7.75 new score

Sorry, I kind of gotten away with my explanation.  :mrgreen:

Trojan Horseshoe finishes with a 6.20 also.  :mrgreen:


Next up is "The Marble Armrest of Xerxes".  :mrgreen:

Episode: "The Marble Armrest of Xerxes"

I gave Marble Armrest a lowly... 1.  :roll: Taking a break from this show for a month has given me a new view on some of these runs, and I have nothing but hate for this team. This was an awful temple and team performance. It was like Pat and Noelle weren't even ready for the temple. They couldn't even make it past the bottom floor in their entire 3 minutes. What the hell? It took most contestants a minute at most to complete the bottom floor. -_- Even with their hard layout, they were absolutely pathetic. Even if Pat didn't have enough time to reach the artifact, a minute is good enough to make some progress on the top floor. Loser team and they don't give an ounce of sympathy from me. I hate this temple run more now than ever and they had no business being on the show. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Well thanks for filling me in with all that math explanation. My worst subject no less. O_O

And I gave Xerxes a 2. But I'm gonna change my vote to a 1. Pat and Noelle DID NOT deserve to go to the temple. :roll:

Pat and Noelle were one of the most undeserving teams to enter the temple. Actually, I will go far as to say they are the most undeserving team ever.  :roll: I mean third in the moat, second in the steps, and winning one of the easiest tiebreakers ever? And then for them to crap themselves in the temple. -_- I know John and Tia were lost causes, but at least they sort of earned their trip to the temple. The Xerxes team's trip was just bulls***. :roll:

Seriously, this team DID NOT DESERVE to go to the temple. Did you hear that tiebreaker question? Any idiot would've gotten it. Not to mention, Zac's little bro Levi was on the Purple Parrots. Who else thinks the Purple Parrots would've done a better job with this layout? They would've lost too, but at least they would've made it to the top floor. And no I do not just hate this run just because Levi didn't win. People need to stop assuming that. :roll:
