Since there is going to be at least one more season of the reality TV series Top Shot on the History Channel, I have decided I will award this illustrious title once per season:

The Top Douchebag award is basically for displaying excellence in the field of douchebaggery. Some may say that I  jumped the gun on this award seeing as Top Shot is only 5 episodes in…. well to that I say “My award my rules”.  If you have seen episode 5 you’ll probably agree that Adam set the douchebag bar pretty high.  If someone steps their game up and out douches him I wouldn’t hesitate revoke Adam’s title and give it to a more deserving contestant.

If you didn’t already dislike Adam Benson enough, he is quoted saying “I am the last great American Hero” not only in his Biography on the Top Shot website, but those exact words also come straight from the douches mouth in the original promo video.

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.
