Title: Something I've Been Thinking About

Is what if the bring the artifact to Kirk rule was in play in season 2 & 3. Runs like Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata and Milk Bucket of Freydis wouldn't have won. Runs like Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid would've been closer down to the wire. Just something to think about.

I doubt they'd pull that crap, even in Seasons 2 and 3. I guess you're right though.

I don't know, I still think those runs would be victorious even if the producers enforced those rules. Only because the kids got the artifact physically back to the gate. Kirk never always did that in Season 1 either. He only did it in runs like Snake Bracelet and Davy Crockett. In the Headdress run, he never tells David to bring the artifact to him. And David is still declared victorious. I think Davy Crockett is the only run where Kirk was hesitant to declare victory. ;)

Yeah, I just don't believe this whole "Kirk would make the contestants hand the artifact to him" thing. Frankly, it would be stupid if they did that. That crap would not fly in the later seasons. It just wouldn't, period.

Did he do that in Season 1 that often too? He did it in the Davy Crockett and Snake Bracelet runs. And Davy Crockett was the only one that was delayed. Otherwise, I didn't know that this was a thing in Season 1.

Pretty much. I think he did it in Silk Ladder too.

The phrase was "Return through the gates in three minutes," not "Hand Kirk the artifact within three minutes."

Exactly. Kirk may have done the latter in Snake Bracelet and Davy Crockett. But it would just never work in any other season.
