Analysis: I am going to go with Bandit Queen on this one, but I think it will be closer than what people will think. Royal Torque was really good as well.

I love Queen Boadicea and think it is one of the few great Red Jaguars episodes on the show. Lissy and Nate came so close with a bottom of the central shaft escape, but came up short. It was an exciting episode and it probably would've been the best Red Jaguars one if Nate and Lissy actually won. But I know Bandit Queen is the superior episode here, which is why I chose that one. This is an extremely fun episode and every round was memorable. I know I pick on the win a lot, but it was still a great watch. I love the memorable legend, the close and unique temple games, and of course the star of this episode: Zac Turney. The way that kid moved, there is no layout he couldn't win. Bandit Queen is definitely the more deserving episode here, which is why I am voting for it. I am glad that Queen Boadicea made it this far though.  ;)  :mrred:

First both Annie's face off and now two Queens. It's like someone set this up on purpose  :shock:

It's really too bad the Jags couldn't pull this one off. Gotta go with Bandit Queen though.

I voted for Bandit Queen, Miriam stalling or not, this was an awesome temple run. Royal Torque is overrated.

And by the way, I think this poll is gonna be near or completely unanimous. I have a feeling it might be.

I knew Queen Boadicea wouldn't have a chance even before the poll started. Bandit Queen is an awesome episode and this was actually an easy vote for me even as a Red Jaguars fan.  :mrsilver:

Yeah, Bandit Queen is a classic episode. Not only for its win, but it was one of the very first episodes I ever watched. This was also an easy vote for me too. :mrsilver: In fact, I'm thinking of screencapping Bandit Queen very soon. Won't the "Golden Idols" if you will, just love that? ;)

Not surprised at all this was a shut out. I knew from the moment I even LOOKED at this thread Bandit Queen was gonna win. And I'm glad it did too.
