Not frontrunners:

Nick (Henry the Eighth's Great Seal)
Roberto (The Paintbrush of Leonardo da Vinci)

Dean (The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb) had little choice in the run, as did Ryan (The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior).  Also, Hallie (The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain) wanted to climb up the walls in the Pit after knocking over the column, but she was worried it would take too long and so she changed her mind.  But her original plan was to directly enter the King's Storeroom.
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

The Room of the Ancient Warriors | Legends: The Rediscovery (Season 3 resumption date TBD)



Favorite episode: The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus
Favorite season: Season 2, very closely followed by Season 3
Favorite team: Blue Barracudas

Credit to Nicklegends for the screencap in the avatar and for Mr. Blue.  Thanks dude!

Jennifer Holtz (Galileo's Cannonball) Disagree
Becca (The Helmet of Genghis Khan) Disagree
Leah (The Star of Sultan Saladin) Agree
Lucretia (The Trojan Horseshoe) Strongly Disagree. Lucreita went up to the Heart Room, not the Throne Room so there was no direct path there
Shay (Henry the Eighth's Great Seal) Disagree kind of
Jessica (The Lost Log Books of Magellan) Haven't seen the episode
Kristin (The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart) Don't remember
Sabrina (Blackbeard's Treasure Map) Agree
Katie (The Paintbrush of Leonardo Da Vinci) Agree
Christina (The Stolen Arm of Shiva) Agree
Keyleigh (The Stone Marker of Leif Er?kson) Haven't seen it
Vicki (The Silver Saddle Horn of Hannibal) Agree, and she ruined her chances of reaching the artifact by going up the shaft.
Erica (Robin Hood and Marian's Ladder) Agree but that layout was easy anyways
Candice (Lawrance of Arabia's Headress) Agree
Katherine "Fred" (The Treasure of Anne Bonny) Agree kind of
Paula (The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy) Disagree, she was pretty much going all over the place
Ashley (The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora) Kind of agree
Missy (The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor) Ummm...I do agree, because she DID try the Medusas Lair door)
Heather (The Stone Head of the Evil King) Agree kind of
Marie (The Lost Lion Tail of Little John) Not really sure on this one
Chandra (The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley) Definately agree
Jessie (The Silk Sash of Mulan) Agree kind of
Kelly (The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid) Agree
Ashley (The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan) Agree
Elizabeth (The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus) Kind of agree, but not really
Veronica (The Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack) Definately agree
Leah (The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd) Haven't seen
Olivia (The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag of William the Conqueror) Agree, especially with her wasting time in the pit
Maggie (The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King) Kind of agree
Kate (The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley) Disagree, she went up to the chamber, not the tomb
Miriam (The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen) Disagree, she went to the Tomb. I also think the chamber door opened too, where I assume temple guard 3 was hiding. She's lucky she didn't go in that room
Sherra (The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson) Disagree
Hallie (The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain) Agree with TAW

Honestly, I don't think you can consider a contestant a bad one just because they try to optimize their paths. Yes, of course they usually didn't work, but these are kids. What are you going to tell them, "don't try to get there the fastest way"?

Ryan wanted to go down. He dropped and imediatly started to clear rubble from the (unopened) door to the room of the ancient warriors.

Oh and I was kind of in a hurry so i made some mistakes, all of the second runners listed should not be on the list and miriam deffinatly should not be on the list.

The thing is, sometimes the direct path WORKS. So you can't really blame some of them. Besides, If the artifact is say in the Heart Room or something, you might as well try the actuator to the Heart Room... you never know. :P

But can you atleast agree that there are some smart contestants from the first and second season who get crapped on more than they deserve.
