Re: Would the Purple Parrots do better? Day 4: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart

Not to mention, the Lucky Pig layout had a chance to be a solo victory. Had Kristen started in the Cave of Sighs and then remained on the rest of her path, the only guard she would've met would be the Swamp guard. And long path or not, the rooms were all easy except for the Shrine. I think we all agree that Annie and Brad would've done better than fatass Kristen in the temple. :afro:

Next up is "The Golden Chains of Zenobia". This episode featured the Purple Parrot team getting swept by the Orange Iguanas in the temple games. Assuming they made it to the temple, would the Purple Parrots do better than Jennifer and Justin? Summary of the temple run below:

I voted against the Purple Parrots team in this episode. As pathetic as Jennifer and Justin were in the temple, I think the Purple Parrots would've bombed the layout even worse than the Orange Iguanas. I mean look how awful they were in the temple games? They were the first temple team to ever be swept, and they were beaten 8-0 in the last temple game. So the Orange Iguanas going to the temple was preferable in this episode. But man, Justin was a special and lost cause contestant.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Also said no here. While the layout was rather tough and confusing, imagine the painfully uncoordinated Purple Parrots in that layout. :shock: The Orange Iguanas were no prize either, but this team wouldn't have done better in the least bit. :roll:

I am going to update this one before I go to bed. We all agree that the Orange Iguanas were the preferred team in the Golden Chains episode. ;)

Next up is "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa". This episode was actually pretty close because Kelly and Greg of the Purple Parrots won their individual games, lost their team game to the Blue Barracudas, and then lost the tiebreaker. And the temple run featured the Barracudas reaching the artifact. Here is a summary of the run below:

This one was actually pretty tough. The Purple Parrots were actually pretty good in this episode, but the Blue Barracudas were also a solid team too. Even though I am not a fan of a team that makes a comeback in the team game and win the tiebreaker, both teams were neck and neck all day. Chris and Tracy were a good team in the temple despite Chris' detour to the Heart Room. Even though I believe that the Purple Parrots might've won, I am not going to short change the Blue Barracudas for their performance. So I will support the Barracudas in this one. ;)

Also voted no. The Purple Parrots really weren't that great in the temple games. Greg was awesome, but Kelly kind of sucked. And she REALLY blew it in the third temple game. It was like she was not even trying at all. Besides, Chris and Tracy did just fine in the temple, despite their mistakes. So no, I don't support this Purple Parrot team in the least. Not impressive at all. :roll:

Even though I said I wasn't going to cover the wins where the Purple Parrots were the losing temple team, I actually changed my mind. Because truth be told, there are a few wins that they would've done better or deserved better over other teams. Case in point, a certain win tomorrow where the Silver Snakes won.  :afro:

But you're supposed to cover every single Purple Parrot temple game loss. Isn't that kind of the point of this thread? =/

And yeah, tomorrow is Silk Ladder. Now THAT should've been the first Purple Parrots win.

I think I will do the wins last. The original premise was to cover all the temple losses, so I am going to follow that plan. ;) Regardless, it seems that we all agree that the Blue Barracudas deserved their temple appearance in Golden Jaguar.  :mrblue:

Now we skip ahead to "The Crown of Queen Nzinga". The first Purple Parrots loss in Season 2. In this run, Ben and Renee had their temple run cut short with a lot of time with 1:07 remaining. Would Tracy and Robbie do better than the Red Jaguars? Temple summary below:

I support the Purple Parrots in this episode. Unlike Golden Ship, Ben and Renee had no excuse for their triple capture. They were slow and Renee screwed up when she had the option of finding the obvious half-pendant or plowing through the wall. She chose neither option and had the temple run end. And this looked like an easy layout too. Even though the Purple Parrots were kind of lackluster in this episode, at least they would've had a better outcome than the Red Jaguars. At least Gabby and Joe had an excuse for their triple capture in Golden Ship even though I supported that Purple Parrots team too. I hate Ben and Renee with every fiber in my body. :evil:

Definitely yes. This Purple Parrot team could've won that layout. And not pass the half pendant. :roll:

Next up is 'The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun". In this episode, the Purple Parrots lost to the Red Jaguars in a tiebreaker. Then the temple run featured Rachelle using all three minutes in the temple without reaching the artifact. Would Jill and Brett do better than the Red Jaguars? Summary of the layout below:

This might not be a popular opinion, but I support the Purple Parrot team in this episode. They were pretty close with the Red Jaguars all day and the final outcome came down to a tiebreaker. As for the temple run, I felt that Rachelle had too much trouble and moved way too slow even if it was a long layout. I am not saying she is as bad as Kristen from Lucky Pig, but she stalled too much in almost every room she entered. If the Purple Parrots made it to the temple, I predict that they would've moved faster and might've reached the Golden Goblet if they took a slightly shorter path (like starting in Medusa's Lair). I don't think they would've won because that layout was pretty hard.

Am I the only one voting no here? =/

No, they would NOT have done a better job. Sure, the Red Jaguars sucked, but the Purple Parrots were a terrible team as well. Did you see those temple games? It was painful to watch. The Purple Parrots were an even worse team, and Jill had no enthusiasm whatsoever. Imagine them in the temple? They would've failed miserably. Sure, Rachelle sucked, but the Purple Parrots would've had an epic fail here as well. They wouldn't have made it anywhere near the artifact. They would've moved extremely slow and would not have tried at all. No, they would not have done a better job.
