He won't win. In the end, his arrogance will get the better of him.

Yeah I was really hoping he was gonna get the boot.

Hell, when I saw the practice I thought he was toast for sure. Hopefully he learned to keep his yap shut, but the preview doesnt make it look that way.

Show sucks because of the Survivor Island game approach, get rid of your competition and keep the weak til the end for competing against.

Sucks.

Last seasons crap with the "he's a rat" rhetoric revolving around precisely that kind of a strategy, from a former cop no less, is part of the reason I hate the show. Manages to both blow and suck at the same time, it's an enigma which deserves to be sucked into the void of a black whole and lost for eternity. Creators and directors of that show suck at life. I am truly at a loss for words in trying to describe how bad Top Shot sucks.

Only thing that eclipses it is the suck that is Sons of Guns. Discovery/History need to lay the hell off this reality tv crap and go back to actual informative learning based programming. Mail Call wasn't bad. Tales of the Gun, epic. Various things where they can pick a single subject and actually present it in a fascinating and educational way, that is what those shows need to return to.

Yeah. They just do that to create drama and drama is stupid.

They should keep everybody, have everybody shoot every challenge and see who comes out with the high score. Anything 'group' should just be names pulled out of a hat last minute.

I hate the "lol let's create strife and drama!!!1" format.

You guys have a point, but at least they are showing all kinds of toys in a good light, no?

I have never watched a realty based show and I never will. Just felt like saying that.

A Golf instructor from southern California winning would be hilarious.
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 1:57:20 PM EST
I highly doubt he will win. Even though he muddles his way though theese challanges. He is not willing to take the advice of any of the specialists trying to help him. I think that will bite him in the ass.


Or we will find out he is a highly trained shooter playing the roll of a douch to undermine the competition.

Don't teach me a new grip, just teach me how to shoot faster and more accurate!!!!1111!!

Ashley is a complete badass in real life from what i hear, and airforce (or was it navy?) Combat controller. A guy who can call in airstrikes and direct planes from the ground in a war zone, the school supposedly has a 99 percent drop out rate because its one of the hardest.

I wouldn't count Jay out but the odds are stacked against him with the competitors that are left. Hate J all you want but the guy can perform under pressure and has the mental game down which is a big part of competitive shooting.

My prediction with two team challenges left is if the red team looses they will try and get rid of Brian Zins so they won't have to compete against him in individual challenges.
