I voted against the Purple Parrots in Missing Portrait. They were really no competition for the Blue Barracudas in this episode. Keith and Rachel were first in the moat, while the Purple Parrots were last. And the Blue Barracudas swept the temple games. So it was clear that the Barracudas were a stronger team than the Purple Parrots. Keith and Rachel did a pretty good job with one of the toughest temple layouts ever. If the Purple Parrots had this layout, they probably would've made less progress. In the end, the Blue Barracudas deserved their temple appearance and were the clear cut stronger team. Although I do think that Rachel and Keith should've made it a little farther in the temple if only they moved a little faster. ;)

No. The Parrots got destroyed in these temple games, and they weren't even remotely impressive. Next.

I forgot how many game losers there were for the Purple Parrots in Season 3. We breezed by Season 2 because there were only 4 Purple Parrot losing teams where their opponents lost in the temple. For Season 3, we still have Enormous Feather, Lost Taj Mahal Turban, Madame Tussaud, Lily-Crested Crown, and Good-Luck Watch. Although some of those will be interesting to rank. ;)

And yeah, the Purple Parrots were clearly the worse of the two teams in this episode. Unlike in Smashed Printing Plate where they also got swept, Keith and Rachel in Hans Holbein were actually a pretty strong team all day. And they made it far in the temple considering their layout.   They are much better than Jason and Dana at least.  :afro:

Yeah, the Purple Parrots had A LOT of embarrassing temple game losses in Season 3. I mean, three of them were sweeps for crying out loud. :shock: The only episodes that are wins were Sir Gawain and Lost Hornpipe. But at least those respective teams were strong and deserved their temple appearances. For the losses, almost every single one should've had Purple winning. :afro:

And yeah, the Parrots in Hans Holbein got their asses whopped in these temple games. Plus, they barely scraped by all episode, like you said. Even though Rachel and Keith were an average team in the temple, they were a lot stronger pre temple. They weren't that great in the temple, but they definitely deserved to win over the Purple Parrots. And at least they didn't cheat in their temple games either. ;)

And it looks like the Blue Barracudas deserve their temple appearance in Hans Holbein! :mrblue:

Next up is "The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh". In this episode, the Purple Parrots lost a 1-1 tiebreaker to the Purple Parrots. Despite the close temple games, the Purple Parrots were pretty dominant pre-temple round where they finished first in the moat, first at the Steps, and won their team game before losing the tiebreaker. In the temple, the Orange Iguanas managed to reach the Enormous Feather but the temple run is not as successful as it seems. Karisa had a lot of time to bring the artifact out but moves super slow and gets lost in every room. This run should've been a temple win. Would Molly and Joey do better than the Orange Iguanas in this episode?

A big YES for the Purple Parrots in this episode. The Orange Iguanas were an undeserving team all day, and Karisa failed as a second runner in the temple. I don't care if Karisa and David reached their artifact, it was a horrible and pathetic effort. It is nothing like Polynesian Girl or Golden Jaguar where both players tried hard in the temple. In Enormous Feather, David was a great frontrunner but Karisa was a lost cause and horrible player. She got lost in every room (even the Quicksand Bog :roll: ) and was so damn slow. The Purple Parrots were actually a pretty strong team before the temple too even though they only won their only pendant in the team game. They sure would've done a hell of a lot better than Karisa in this episode. -___________- I EASILY support the Parrots in this episode.  ;)  :mrpurple:

Are you fucking kidding me?! OF COURSE I support this Purple Parrot team in the temple. :roll: David and Karisa barely scraped by all episode, all while the Purple Parrots dominated until yet again, they choked at the tiebreaker. And don't get me started on the fucking temple run either. Outer space is a retard for thinking they deserved to go to the temple. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: All because "Oh noes! The Purple Parrots only won the third temple game!" Come on now, Karisa was a terrible player. That's enough proof right there THAT THEY DID NOT DESERVE TO GO TO THE TEMPLE!!!! :roll:

And I refuse to sugar coat this either. :roll: This IS NOT getting the ;) smiley from me. Are you kidding me? :|

And frankly, it does not deserve the ;) at all. This was a terrible team and it does NOT deserve to be sugar coated. :roll:

The  ;) in my post is me supporting the Purple Parrots. ;)

And I agree, this has to be the worst failed escape run on the show. It was so painful to watch the second Karisa entered the temple. She had a path cleared all the way to the Quicksand Bog and it takes her a minute just to get there. :x If she was going to be this awful, I'd rather watch this run end in triple capture before seeing her grab the artifact. One of the most frustrating losses of Season 3. F*** you Karisa!  :x  :x  :x  :x  :x  :x

But it doesn't even deserve that either. What really kills it for me is outer space thinking they deserved to go the temple. On the grounds that "the Purple Parrots were a bad team for only winning the third game." Even if that's true, one can only assume that the Purple Parrots wouldn't have stood there like idiots in the Quicksand Bog. Karisa was a terrible player, and she doesn't even RUN when she grabs the feather. This definitely should've had Purple Parrots going to the temple. Fuck you Karisa, fuck you with 20 cactus's. :x :afro:

And yes Karisa deserves the cactus comment. ;)

This is one of the very few temple runs that made me legit pissed when it ended. I mean I know it is just a game show, but Karisa had a VERY favorable path and she blew it. There is nothing good about her one bit either. Poor David had to get paired up with one of the most retarded players of Season 3. Even Kirk Fogg was getting pissed with Karisa, and he rarely did that in Season 3. This episode is one of the many reasons why I hate the Orange Iguanas because they had such terrible runs like this. Out of all the Orange/Purple runs, I wanted to see this Purple Parrot team advance the most. They were the clear cut better team and it isn't even close. :roll:

Also, this is one of the many reasons why I never took outer space seriously. He always blasted Jeremy and Elise from War Fan for scraping by their episode but defends Karisa and David? And the Enormous Feather team progressed the EXACT same way as War Fan's temple team too. And Jeremy and Elise were x10 better than the Orange Iguanas even with their production error.

And no way am I making an Orange Iguanas poll either. That right there is all you.

And outer space was always full of crap. I mean, he disses Jeremy and Elise for barely scraping by, yet Karisa and David get defended? I mean, I know we all have our opinions and all, but then there's just ridiculous. :roll:

We all agree that the Purple Parrots deserved to go to the temple over retarded Karisa and the Orange Iguanas. :afro:

Next up is "The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I". It was another Orange/Purple episode with Orange winning in a close match-up with a final score of 2-1.5. The temple run featured Katie having trouble in most of the rooms she entered, with her most notable moment where she spent over a minute in the Chamber. By the time she was taken out, Judge had no prayer of winning. But he was a pretty slow and clueless second runner too. Would Erika and Jeremy do better than the Orange Iguanas in the temple? Summary of layout below:

I support the Purple Parrots in this episode. Despite the Orange Iguanas entering the temple with 2 Pendants, they weren't that good of a team at all. The temple game score was even close with the end result being 2-1.5! So it's not like it was domination like Hans Holbein. An the Orange Iguanas performed poorly in the temple too. Katie really blew her load when she spent over a minute in the Chamber, a room where no other contestant ever had trouble. At least Tony from Stone Head sort of has an excuse for spending too long in his room. And she just had too much trouble after the Chamber too. Judge was a pathetic second runner also. He backtracked for no reason when he had a clear path to the Shrine and moved so slow. The Purple Parrots would not have messed up like these two. This layout is exactly like Gwalior, so the Orange Iguanas have no excuse for their poor performance.

I also support this Purple Parrot team. They dominated every round before the temple games, only to have Katie and Judge do a terrible job in the temple. So this is an easy yes for me.
