Default Top Shot?

My son and I hang out together every Saturday night and sleep on cots in a tent or the camper or something. He is 11. It was raining last night so we set up in the living room. We watched about 5 reruns of Top Shot. I had never seen it before. It was an entertaining show. But these guys are supposed to be champions. In some episodes they were great. But there were a couple episodes where these guys couldn't shoot for crap. I'd never seen a champion that couldn't shoot a Colt Peacemaker before. Does anyone else watch this show?

Pretty big thread dedicated just to that show:

By the way, one of the guys who works for me was contacted by the producers and there's a good chance he's gonna be on the show next season. They asked him to send a video of his shooting. The guy is pretty amazing.

I've watched all season and your right, I've seen a lot of LESS than exceptional marksmanship. However, they are shooting unfamiliar guns and given limited practice time to determine POA V/S POI so I cut them some slack and just appreciate the fact that there's a reality show geared around my sport!
