Top Shot Season 4 – Who Will Be Crowned Top Douchebag?

 I watched all the season 4 biography videos hunting for a top douchebag, and here are my thoughts:

Augie Malekovich – Seems like an alright guy.

Chee Kwan – Seems like a nice guy as well.

Chris Cheng – Nice guy.

K this is getting boring… when are the douchebags going to appear?

Colin Gallagher – “My colleagues would describe me as a little guy with a big mouth” <–  despite this self proclaimed douchebaggery he actually seems like a good guy.

Craig Buckland – Smart guy, seems nice as well.

Dylan Fletcher – “I don’t like gun ranges ’cause there are rules”  “I would describe myself as ‘the shit'”   Kind of annoying, but not as bad as I thought he would be after those two comments.

Eric ‘Iggy’ Keyes – “Put your sights where your mouth is, I’m gonna be top shot.. yes I am”  hahaha seems like an alright guy.  I liked the little jingle at the end of his video.

Forrest McCord – Nice guy.

Frank Melloni – Nice guy.

Gabby Franco – She seems nice.

Gary Shank – Nice guy.

OMG this is painfully boring.. please History.. Please make one of the next 7 people annoying.

Gregory Littlejohn – Nice guy.

Keith Gibson – Nice guy.

Kyle Sumpter – Nice guy.

Michelle Viscusi – Yikes, the internet is going to love her.  I hope she can shoot under pressure.  Better watch the brass on that cleavage.

Terry Vaughan – Seems like a good guy.  Needs to go up 1 size on that v-neck though.  Wait “I will win top shot”  did he just say that?   Yea now I hope he loses quick.

Tim Trefren – Nice guy.

William Bethards – Nice guy as well.

There appears to be a real lack of annoying people compared to previous seasons.   I”m not sure why the History Channel would do this… I would have picked the loudest most annoying people on the planet and mixed them with people that would embarrass them on the range.

I haven’t watched the first two episodes (nor do I plan to), but i’ll keep an eye on the discussion you guy have in the comments, and then open up a vote towards the end of the season.

Let me hear your pick(s) the comments.

Had the pleasure of meeting Tim Trefren at a range in Wichita a month ago. Very humble about his skills, even let me borrow a sharpie.

My money’s on greg littlejohn. guy just screams ‘arrogant douche’ to me.

Absolutely. His arrogance after his win was rather disturbing.

Yep, my money is going on Littlejohn.

On a site note, I met George and Ashley at the NRA convention. They said the show editing was shown to make some people look evil and other look heavenly. They said what when on in the house was not reflected in what was shown on TV.

There is a word in the Spanish language for Littlejohn: PENDEJO.
There is a word in US Navy lingo for Littlejohn: A**hole
There are two words in the gun owners lingo for Littlejohn: A**hole PENDEJO.

I was relieved to find out they all seem like generally decent folks… Tho 2 episodes in and I am alittle bored, paying more attention into who I should condemn as the douche waffle. Every season there’s the “guy who has no titles or service and has a completely boring non gun related job” which I tend to hate because that could have been someone worth watching. But then I see Michelle and I forget what I was thinking about :p

Next season should be all youtube gun celebrities… hickock45, nutnfancy, fateofdestinee, tnoutdoors… throw in FPSfakeshit and you got your top douchebag right off the start!

Yeah, so far it’s definitely Littlejohn that is the douchiest.

Reply

Dave February 27, 2012 at 08:22 am

So far Littlejohn is kind of a douche. I really hope Michelle survives a bit. She’s fun to look at.

I’m actually rather glad we don’t have a major drama figure at least as yet. I hated watching the last 3 douchebags; every moment they were on the screen was less fun. I like seeing sportsmanship in the firearms community. So I’ll enjoy not having an obvious douchebag.

Reply

Frank February 27, 2012 at 10:09 am

It’s too early to judge.
I thought Jay Lim was an douche, but eventually he simmered down.
However someone like Jake Zweig? Will we see another? I don’t know.
Unlike previous douche winners, Zweig didn’t and still doesn’t need to be crowned anything he’s clearly mastered.

From what I tell from pictures of Michelle Viscusi, she has nice guns. :-)
In all likelihood if Top Shot goes on for 5 more seasons, there could be a contestant that is aware of “Top Douchebag”, which would awesome. Kind of like having a president whose played GTA before.

bigghoss February 27, 2012 at 11:30 am

I hope they’re wising up and realizing that the people that watch this show want to see shooting and not drama. Maybe that’s why the contestants are as douchy as they used to be.

spencer wade February 27, 2012 at 11:33 am

the show is great everyone here is jeleous that they cant make it on the show nor shot/ background like these people

Jeff Stevens February 27, 2012 at 12:23 pm

For the record, I’ve enjoyed every single season of Top Shot. It’s not perfect, but it’s been a lot of fun and the personalities do add to it. I just don’t like the made-up conflict and selective editing to make people look more like jerks than they are. But I love the show, have watched every episode, and look forward to every new one.

Reply

dave February 29, 2012 at 07:08 pm

Me too,after most episodes i want to go out and make some crazy target like they were shooting. They are the reason i have cannon fuse now.

Reply

Jason April 4, 2012 at 03:14 pm

Yeah, I almost want to turn it off during the parts at the house. The parts where they are actually shooting on the other hand are really thrilling. Over all, a very fun show…
ps. Is anyone else really annoyed that they always show everyone packing their suitcase EVERY time they go to elimination?

Also voting for Littlejohn. The duces comment and demeanor all point to douche.

Viscusi is active on a few gun forums.

She’s AF and shoots IPSC, she didn’t just get on because she’s got a pretty face.

NotWagner February 28, 2012 at 03:43 pm

Dylan’s pretty hilarious in person.

Greg needs a cuntpunt. He’s the douche thus far. I hope the whole team yells “deuces!!” if the time comes that he’s sent packing.

Reply

dave February 29, 2012 at 07:06 pm

Greg does seem in the running after this weeks episode, but its all Dylan for my vote.

Reply

NotWagner February 29, 2012 at 07:57 pm

Yeah…Greg totally cried last night. “I can’t vote for the worst performer if it means voting my friends off…I’d rather be here with my friends…” or some such…I hope he’s just trollin…

This show is a survivor clone. I quit watching once it became obvious that it was a popularity contest instead of a shooting contest.

I want to see Sons of Derp and American Guns go up against each other. Maybe have the two daughters have a jello wrestling match thrown in for good measure.

ENDO-Mike March 6, 2012 at 04:23 pm

Best idea i’ve ever heard. Although i’d rather Derphanie keep her clothes on. We should throw Kari from mythbusters in there for good measure too.

Reply

dave March 8, 2012 at 01:19 pm

Kari and jello, how could you go wrong.
This weeks episode still ties greg and dylan, but i am looking forward to gregs future coming out episode.
There is still room for me to change my mind if i find out who on the red team started that stupid exploding hands thing. :/

Reply

Brandon March 13, 2012 at 06:30 am

Dylan will soon reveal himself to be the Top Douchebag. I base my assessment from episode 3.

Reply

Jeff Stevens March 22, 2012 at 12:23 am

What Tim did to Chris on the latest episode (with the Atlantl) was truly douchey. Chris did admit his failings and Tim accused him of not owning up; he was wrong and he called someone out and paid the price.

Not sure he can be Top D-bag because he’s not around long enough. I still suspect Littlejohn will end up taking that title.

Reply

Tim Callahan March 22, 2012 at 12:55 am

Tim was already starting to get on my nerves, but he’s got nothing on Littlejohnson. However, they all pale in comparison to Jake Zweig, so everyone in Season 4 seems nice by comparison.

Reply

Jason April 4, 2012 at 03:41 pm

Haha, yeah. Jake needs some serious help. He easily outdistanced all others who had come before (at being a complete idiot that is). And I think that’s putting it lightly…
; )

Jason April 4, 2012 at 02:32 pm

At first I really disliked Greg (Little John). But he’s actually grown on me. William, on the other hand, has simply gotten more, and more annoying. With stupid quotes like, “Hey diddle diddle, right down the middle”, he gets my vote…

Reply

Tim Callahan April 5, 2012 at 01:25 am

I agree. Although I still don’t like Littlejohn that much, it seems like he’s a little more humble now. William, on the other hand, grows cockier and cockier. And need I say more douchier.

Reply

Kardinal April 4, 2012 at 02:44 pm

Jason, I think you’ve got a point there. I was desperately hoping William would go to elimination and get smoked by Terry, who was, I think, my favorite.

Greg LJ is turning into a lovable big lug, frankly. His loyalty to all of his teammates is laudable, if awkward.

Reply

Jason April 4, 2012 at 03:09 pm

Totally agree. Terry was my favorite, and now he’s gone… Now I am whole-heartily cheering for Kyle…

Reply

Laughing Jack April 4, 2012 at 02:55 pm

:( So sad Terry got eliminated. IMO one of the best personalities of the whole season.

Reply

Jason April 4, 2012 at 03:10 pm

Agreed… I walked away fuming when Greg won… : (

Reply

Jason April 11, 2012 at 01:18 am

William (aka the douche) is gone! That MADE my day! I practically screamed for joy! Unfortunately, Gabby went home also, which is a shame…

Reply

Tim April 26, 2012 at 02:55 am

Greg Little John is a complete joke… So we are left with a Marine, two guys that don’t even belong on the show, and this crybaby named Greg that has sucked ass the entire season? Really, that’s the best we could get? That’s embarrassing! Its sad that “reality” tv has proved once again how completely fake it is

Reply

dave w May 3, 2012 at 12:10 am

Well i have to say this season they either screened the candidates better or improved the editing. Greg didnt make the cut for douchebag for me in the end, sure he probably has read eat pray love and been to the vagina monologues once or twice, but to each their own. William turned into a turd so i he will get my final vote.

Reply

Tim Callahan May 3, 2012 at 12:29 am

I agree. I think Greg was a douche at first, but turned out not to be so bad. It seemed that he came back a little humbler after each challenge. William, on the other hand, seemed to turn into more of a douche as time went on.

Can the whole blue team get Top Douchebag?

Reply

Matthew June 24, 2012 at 04:50 pm

I vote for Gary. All he did was boast about how he knew everything about firearms and competitions. Him bragging about him and his dad just makes me sick.
