Show

 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.

Shoot at the douchebag who apparently quit Top Shot on this week’s episode:

Orrrrrrrr not.

Brought to you by Next Level Douchebags, oops I meant Next Level Training.    Is this seriously the kind of thing I need to come up with to get some free advertising?  wow…

I haven’t seen an episode of Top Shot this season, so I really don’t know anything about this guy.   This target though isn’t even something I’d consider clever.  I’m no lawyer, but making a shooting target up about someone (without their authorization) seems like a real bold move... If Jake is that much of a douchebag maybe he’s in on it and getting a kickback?

If you care at all about the show, there is a pretty intense debate going on it my previous post Top Shot Season 3 – Who Will Be Crowned Top Douchebag.   Since there are about 6 or so guys left i’ll be running that vote pretty soon.

Check the season 3 trailer:

Douchebag history was made the first two seasons. 

Season 1 – Top Douchebag – Adam Benson

Season 2 – Top Douchebag – George Reinas

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.  

Thoughts anyone?

“I’m big, I’m mean. I’m going to destroy the competition.” This Air Force sniper has reason to be cocky–he’s good. Not only is he a certified military, civilian and SWAT sniper, he’s an instructor in all of them as well. George Reinas was the sniper team leader as well as the coach of last year’s winning sniper team at the AF Rodeo Competition. An obsessive weight lifter, he regularly benches 400-plus pounds and curls 200 pounds, barely breaking a sweat. A self-described Jersey Shore guy, he’s not afraid to tell it like it is.

172 of you voted on facebook, and George was the victor by a landslide with 144 votes. Ashley Spurlin was a distant second at 23 votes, followed by Brian, Chris, and Joe.

I’d feel bad giving this award someone that didn’t deserve it, but right up until the credits rolled on the final episode, George proved to all of us that he was the only logical choice.

Stay tuned for another Top Douchebag when they announce the cast of Season 3!

Last season it was Adam Benson (for more reasons than I care to remember):

My preliminary thoughts on this seasons’ 16 contestants you ask?

Maggie Reese – Seems very down to earth also.  Good to see a confident girl in the mix. Her competitive background will likely be a huge asset.

Athena Lee – Seems down to earth also.  Plus she competes, so she will be used to the pressure.

George Reinas – Full of himself… I hope he gets shut down hard on episode #1.

That’s all the videos history seems to have up so far.. I’ll formulate more opinions as the new videos go up.

  • You can watch those video, and read the bios for the rest of the contestants on the History Channel Website – HERE

Season 2 of the show premieres Feb 8th on History

If anyone wants to go out on a limb and make a prediction of Season 2 Top Douchebag, let the comments be the record.

I always enjoy when a gun gets unexpectedly worked into the story line of a favorite show:

ABC’s Modern Family is definitely on my short list of all time favorite sitcoms. I don’t want to spoil the episode (S02E08) for you… but lets just say Manny reminisces about his lost childhood and gets a BB gun as one of his gifts, and it makes a few appearances.

If you need to catch up on episodes, the season 1 DVD set is only $20 – HERE

Or you can watch all the episodes from both seasons online:

  • Standard Definition (SD) – HERE
  • High Definition (HD) – HERE

The pilot episode is free on those links, so at least check that out!
