The Temple Run

Travis went first. He chose to enter The Crypt. In The Pit of the Pendulum, he knocked down column and successfully made it back to the platform. He proceeded into the Chamber of the Sacred Markers (The only door that opened) and Met his first guard. After completing the object, Travis headed down into the tomb of the headless kings. He continued onto the bottom floor. In the Quicksand Bog, Travis wisely used the ladder to gain access into the shrine of the silver monkey. He was quickly removed after grabbing the base with 1:14 remaining. It was his supportive team mate, Elisa's turn. Kirk was correct when he said "It's going to be close". After a sight delay, Elisa completed the Monkey and advanced into the room of the ancient warriors. Unfortunately, Elisa met a temple guard in the first suit of armor, which failed to open the door. Time expired as before she tried the last suit. They overall did a solid job in the temple but the brutal layout killed victory.

  • In the Tomb of the Headless Kings after Travis pulled two of the vines, the screaming sound played twice while the pulling sounds were delayed.
  • When one of the Headless Kings gets his head on and says "I'm Alive", he did not glow.
  • This was the only time in season three that a team other than the Orange Iguanas went for an artifact in the The King's Storeroom..
  • The Temple Run is often called one of the most unfair runs in the show's history due to The Rooms the contestants had to go though to reach the Seal and the placement of the Temple Guards.
