You know what, I am pretty sure it was in the same place for "Mount Kilimanjaro" temple run also. And this makes sense too since "Jedediah Smith" and "Mount Kilimanjaro" were taped back to back on the same production day. And of course, Heather was too stupid to find it and Casey was even more stupid to not notice it after all the time he spent in that room.  :roll:

They weren't taped back to back. Upside-Down Compass was filmed in between them.

That detail aside, I think that's definitely the half-pendant in both cases. For comparison's sake, here a shot of the same door from The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen:



There isn't anything below the door, so the circled spots most certainly have to be the half pendant.

I checked two other great wins to see if there was anything below the same door: The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen and The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak. Guess what? I think we've got a winner with TRJ's find! Nothing was below the door in both runs I just mentioned. Now only if we can find the Walking Stick half pendant.

Wait a minute, I just found something interesting. In "The Marble Armrest of Xerxes", Noelle gave a signal to Pat that the half pendant was on one of the middle painting buttons in the Jesters' Court. However, there was something below the same door like in the Shaving Pan and Snow Cone runs. I circled both the hand signal and spot below the door.




Also note that I couldn't see the half pendant on any of the actuators. It was too hard to see. So either that spot below the door is just a decoration or Noelle, like we all know, is an idiot. :roll:

PP319, I think the half-pendant in "Xerxes" is in the exact same place for "Mount Kilimanjaro" and "Jedediah Smith". I never understood why people thought that the half-pendant was on the Jester's Court actuators. I have never once saw it there as many times I have watched that pitiful temple run. Watching the video again, it looks like it is indeed below the Jester's Court door to the Dark Forest. What Noelle is trying to do in the Jester's Court while trying the middle painting is unusual though.

And yeah, that cresent-shaped object is not there in any of the other temple runs. If you watch runs like "Ivan the Terrible" and "Queen Boadicea", that object is not present in either of those runs.

You got my name right for once! :mrpurple: ;)

So we're just going to say that the half pendant was hanging under the door and Noelle is an idiot. Sounds good to me. :P

Yeah, it's pretty unlikely for it to just be decoration if it's not there in every run.

And it makes sense for the half pendant to be there in Marble Armrest, since it was filmed immediately after Bent Shaving Pan.

And not to mention, "Xerxes" is the same day as the two runs above. Oh boy what a pitiful day for temple appearances.

Yeah, the Xerxes half pendant location we found is much more accurate than it being on one of the paintings actuators. I mean, notice how we don't see anything moon shaped on the middle paintings actuators? Either way, it's not like the team was gonna make it far anyways. :roll:

My problem is that how were the contestants suppose to know that the half-pendant was there? I mean its not like the first thing you first enter the Jester's Court is to look below the Dark Forest door. And when the teams do complete the Jester's Court objective, the room goes dark anyways. So how would one expect to find the half-pendant there? And in the case for "Xerxes" and "Mount Kilimanjaro", those final temple guards would've been unavoidable and those runs would've ended in triple cature anyways since neither teams found it. Although not that it matter because both were lost causes. :roll:

And looking at the season three half-pendant lists, a lot of those half-pendant teams got a raw deal in the temple where the producers were basically banking on them for having 1.5 pendants. Runs like "Aurangzeb", "Hans Holbein", and "Xerxes" featured layouts where the half-pendant MUST be found in order for them to suceed longer in the temple.

Hans Holbein was 2 pendants. ;)

The other run you were thinking of was probably "The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce."

It's possible the contestants could have felt the half pendant while exiting the room. But yeah, I wouldn't expect them to actually find the half pendant in that location. Couldn't they have just put it above the Pit/Tomb door? Like they did in the Sforza run.

My theory is when season three came around, the producers tried making these gimmicky layouts to switch the show up a little bit and that includes making weird half-pendant locations. I mean look at where the half-pendant in "The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain" was - it was sitting next to one of the pots in the King's Storeroom. Same with the half-pendant for "Madame Tussaud" and "Chandragupta". And "One-Eyed Jack" had the half-pendant in the Tomb of the Headless Kings. And several runs had the half-pendant hanging from above the Chamber like in "Sir Gawain". While in season two, the half-pendants were always in plain view like hanging from an actuator that the team will most likely use. The season two half-pendants were basically screaming "find me", and of course some teams miserably failed like the "Nathan Hale" team.

And wasn't "The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza" the only time the half-pendant was in the Pit in season three? I am surprised they didn't hide more there. Then again, the "Sforza" win was basically handed to the Green Monkeys team.

The half pendants in Golden Spider Web and Lost Taj Mahal Turban were also in the pit.

You know what, I am pretty sure it was in the same place for "Mount Kilimanjaro" temple run also. And this makes sense too since "Jedediah Smith" and "Mount Kilimanjaro" were taped back to back on the same production day. And of course, Heather was too stupid to find it and Casey was even more stupid to not notice it after all the time he spent in that room.  :roll:


I'm sorry, but I do not think that this is a half pendant.

If you look at the picture closely, in the circled area there's a white-ish strip that runs along the base of the opening, but it terminates right where you all believe the half pendant is hanging.

I think that what TRJ has circled in this picture is just a piece of trimming that had become partially dislodged from its spot at the bottom of this opening. I think that the trim's purpose would be to cover up the 90 degree angle so the contestants wouldn't be injured by knocking body parts into it.



I think that this is the same for the Jedediah Smith half pendant as well.

Notice that the hanging object forks in 2 directions just below the opening. As seen in previous confirmed half pendant pictures, the hanging half pendant never forked in multiple directions like that. It just laid flat against the wall.



I think that the grainy nature of TSM's comparison pic disallows us to see the trim. Also, please keep in mind that the Metal Beard episode was 18 episodes after Jedediah Smith, and 20 episodes after Kilimanjaro. So the crew would have had ample time to notice the dislodged piece of safety trim and either replace or fix it, but would have had no time in between Kilimanjaro and Jedediah Smith to fix it due to them being on consecutive production days.

Wait a minute, I just found something interesting. In "The Marble Armrest of Xerxes", Noelle gave a signal to Pat that the half pendant was on one of the middle painting buttons in the Jesters' Court. However, there was something below the same door like in the Shaving Pan and Snow Cone runs. I circled both the hand signal and spot below the door.

This quote further solidifies my theory, because Noelle obviously saw something worthwhile to signal to her partner Pat. That and the presence of the dangling object pretty much debunks the Jedediah Smith pics. Also, I think I saw a beige edge of the half pendant Noelle was signaling with 1:26 left in the run right before the camera angle changes to Noelle lining up with the left painting. If anybody can get a pic of this reflection I saw please post it.

Also, I think Pat missed the half pendant because the room was blacked out, so he couldn't see well enough to find it.
