In each episode, contenders will face team and elimination challenges inspired by real events in history, from Wild West shootouts to modern-day sniper missions. Every challenge will reveal the weapons, technologies and tactics of a different era, while hi-speed HD cameras capture the skillful execution of each test with breathtaking precision in extreme slow-motion. One contestant will emerge with a $100,000 prize package and the title of “Top Shot.”
By the look of the trailer, some of the competitors seem to be cocky bastards, so it should be entertaining enough to see their egos taken down a notch. Just like survivor, I’ll be rooting for the person that keeps their attitude in check, and can win and lose graciously.
The series starts June 6th at 10 pm on the History Channel.
