Steps of Knowledge

The first woman to fly across the Atlantic, and the first to fly from Hawaii to California, was also the most famous woman pilot in history. She was Amelia Earhart. Everyone followed her adventures as she tried to fly all the way around the world. By the time she got to New Guinea in the Pacific, she had been through some rough storms and close calls. Jojo, her New Guinea fueler, was loading up her baggage and gassing up her engines for the last leg of her journey. He wanted Amelia to be safe on her trip, so her carved her a statue of a pot-bellied pig.

"I'm sorry, Jojo, I simply can't take this," Amelia said.

She handed it back apologetically to Jojo. The sun was shining, and all was well, but hours later, she disappeared over the Pacific, never to be heard from again. Some say she was captured by the Japanese. Some say she ran out of gas. But Jojo knew it was because she left behind the Lucky Pot-Bellied Pig.

Temple Games

Pigs-a-Go-Go (Bungee Soap Mat)

In the first game, called "Pigs a Go-Go" by Kirk, Scott and Brad had to race against each other to try and place two pig figurines on each of their two designated pedestals (the "four corners of the earth," apparently), all the while fighting both the slippery floor and the bungee cords tethering them to the center of the field. The game was actually over very quickly— both players moved fast and had little trouble, but Scott was the first one to place all four pigs, finishing the game with a whopping 36 seconds on the clock and earning half of a Pendant of Life for the Blue Barracudas.

Fly Like Amelia Earhart (Bamboo Forest)

In the second game, the girls basically had to be airplanes, with a bamboo rod acting as wings and a bamboo forest being the terrain through which to maneuver. Kristin, being the tallest of the last four players, had a relatively hard time making her way through, but Annie's shortness paid off, as she got through the forest first, ending the game with 28 seconds left and earning a half-Pendant for the Purple Parrots.

Around the World (Bungee Soap Line)

The third game, which might or might not decide the winner, was a challenge to transfer six planes from partner to partner and attach them to a round board painted like the Earth which was lying at the other end of the slippery track, as a way to chart Amelia Earhart's progress on her trip around the world. The Purple Parrots failed to make the first transfer; when Brad slid back, he tried putting a second plane on his head, which further delayed their progress. When time ran out, the Purple Parrots only had three planes on their board, but the Blue Barracudas had five planes on theirs. They won the full Pendant, which meant that they won the Temple Games, -½ and would be going to the Temple.

Temple Run

The Temple Run was very frustrating. Scott was a very supportive player from the sidelines, but Kristin wasn't that great a contestant. She was slow and hesitated on more than one occasion, but the cruel Temple design didn't help. Kristin went up into the Room of the Three Gargoyles and immediately hit a Temple Guard, but then had a lot of trouble in the Wall Climb. This episode exemplified that the knotted ropes installed after the first day did more harm than good— Kristin only managed to climb up to one of the upper doors when she completely avoided the ropes; she fell back down when she grabbed onto the rope while trying to reach the Heart Room door (where the second Temple Guard HAD to be), and finally left for the Observatory forty-four seconds after she entered the Wall Climb.

From the Observatory, Kristin progressed across the top floor, not encountering any more problems until the Shrine of the Silver Monkey— she was even one of the few players to not try opening the treasure chest to go down. She knew which order the pieces had to be assembled in, but it took her a while to properly turn the head and jam it down, after which it looked like the only way to go from there was into the Pirate's Cove (we never see if the Shrine-Dungeon passage opened, but the Shrine-Tomb passage clearly did not).
S1E15 Half Pendant Circled
In the Dungeon, she took too much time trying to find a way into the Tomb of the Ancient Kings; in the Tomb she took a few seconds to find the key in the sarcophagus. With time ticking down, she entered the Swamp, but inevitably met the second Temple Guard. Scott was sent into the Temple, but with only less than a second to go, he could only pass through the Temple Gate before time ran out. Quite a shame; if Kristin started into the Cave of Sighs and could go straight into the Wall Climb from there, perhaps she could've grabbed the Lucky Pig in time. If Scott went first and took such a path, there's a possibility he would've fared even better.
