Starting August 9th… the fight for the illustrious title of season 3’s top douchebag will begin.

I don’t particularly care for Top Shot, so I probably won’t watch very many episodes. I think starting it up in summer is also a mistake, because most people have better things to do than watch TV indoors.
I’m looking forward to running the dialog though and hearing your thoughts on the contestants as the show progresses.
Surprisingly there isn’t any blatant douchebaggery in the trailer; Everyone actually seems pretty nice. I thought the ex navy seal (Jake Zewig) at the end was going to be my pick when he said he “had the innate ability to do the impossible consistently”, but his chuckle afterwards tells me that he was joking.
There aren’t any individual cast videos up yet, although I’m sure you can find a lot of their audition videos if your search for their names on youtube. Their bios are up on the History website though if you want to take a look.
I’m normally pretty good at distinguishing confidence from douchebaggery, but maybe i’m off my game tonight.
