Original competition series from HISTORY® returns for Season Two on Tuesday, February 8 at 10pm ET, Hosted by Survivor Contestant Colby Donaldson.
North Hollywood, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- The hit competition series from HISTORY is rearmed and reloaded. Sixteen fearless marksmen, carefully selected from thousands of applicants, will aim for the $100,000 prize package and the title of “Top Shot.”
The all-new cast of 14 men and two women includes a 10-time NRA pistol champ, two former world shooting champs, a Texas cop, a Jersey shore Air Force sniper, a Bronze Star recipient, and representatives from four branches of the military.
The 13-week series premieres Tuesday, February 8 at 10pm ET on HISTORY.
TOP SHOT’s second season will see more intense challenges and surprising twists inspired by history.
Trials include shooting from the back of a moving vehicle, based on a WWII training exercise, shooting while hanging from a 125 foot crane or even shooting while being turned upside down.
Firearms in the contestants’ arsenal will include the iconic “Tommy Gun,”.44 Magnum and a .50 caliber sniper rifle, as well as primitive weapons like the Tomahawk and blow gun. High-speed HD cameras capture the skillful execution of each test in extreme slow-motion.
Survivor contestant, athlete and adventurer Colby Donaldson returns as host of HISTORY’S second season of the elimination series.
The season two premiere (Tuesday, February 8) opens with a surprise straight from Civil War history exactly 150 years ago: marksmen will face the same test that soldiers had to pass to get into the Union Army’s first sharpshooting regiment.
The two with the best shots will then get to choose their own teams. The episode also includes a game of extreme billiards and an elimination challenge which sends the first marksman home in tears. Every contender must possess incredible speed, precision and skill, but in the end, only one winner will earn the “Top Shot” title.
Fans of Top Shot on Facebook (www.facebook.com/HISTORYTopShot) can play the Top Shot Reloaded Fantasy Game beginning February 5th for a chance to see their name announced on HISTORY.
