Before saying anything about this episode, we wanted to say that one funny thing about the way most of the shows begin, is Colby saying, “Good morning, Shooters”. Then, the shooters say, “Good morning, Colby”. We just think it sounds like a school room teacher saying good morning to her class and the students responding likewise. Anyway…..

Season 5 Episode 3 was called “Pick Your Poison” because contestants had to pick the person they wanted to go up against. Colby would select a random name and then that person called out their competitor. Then Colby would select another name and that person selected their competitor and so on, until there were only two people left – and then those two people would compete against one another. There were 14 shooters and the top 7 shooters were safe from elimination, leaving the bottom 7 to compete on the proving ground. Two of those shooters were Gabby and Chee.

Anyway…. in this episode, we got to witness Chee sitting next to Gabby on the bench and we were also treated to Gabby & Chee making brownies together. They were still good friends which was kind of nice to see. Last season, Chee sent Gabby home and they were both teary-eyed. This time, unbelievably, Gabby and Chee had to go up against each other in elimination because they shot the worst in the proving ground.

For elimination, they had to shoot the same plate setup that they shot in season 4. There were 4 or 5 rows of 6 plates, each row having successively smaller plates. Starting at the top row, the row with the biggest plates, they shot from left to right. They had to shoot 6 for 6 because if they missed one plate, all 6 plates would pop back up forcing the shooter to start all over (on that row). Well, Chee did really poorly not even getting past the 2nd row. Gabby was awesome, maintaining great focus all the way down to the very last plate.

It was good to see one of the female shooters actually be able to shoot. All the rest of the women in past seasons of Top Shot would be bragging about themselves but they all got eliminated almost immediately. It seemed like they were just the token women competitors taking up a valuable spot. We knew from Season 4 that Gabby was different and that she could shoot unlike the other ones. Not only that, but we don’t think she’s ever bragged about herself. She is really nice and pretty quiet, making her even more likable. Chee was nice too, albeit a little goofy.

It would be really cool if Gabby could win the competition and I think at least some of us will be rooting for her.

Halfway through the most recent episode of Top Shot, I think my liking for Chee and Gabby went down. The eight people left were doing a sniper challenge, and you had ten minutes or twenty shots to hit a target 1,500 yards down range. Whoever took the longest to hit the target went home immediately and the next three people who did the worst could be voted into elimination. It turned out that Gabby took the most time to hit the target, so she went home. Chee was very sad because he and Gabby had gotten to be good friends, and like Greg, he looked like he was going to cry! Gabby was crying too and it was mildly disturbing. It seems Top Shot is turning into a soap opera, although it isn’t really their fault. I wonder where all these people come from.

Anyway, Gregory Little John is STILL on Top Shot. 😦 He just won’t go home! It turned out that William went home, which is a good thing because William was being really annoying on the last few episodes. Chris made an incredible come back during elimination round with William. He was really trailing behind, but then he caught up and then won.

Oh well. The episode was entertaining, but not very fulfilling, because I would have liked Greg to go home. Hopefully he will be kicked off next week, but we’ll see.

On the latest episode of Top Shot, the red team lost the team challenge and had to send two of their members to compete against each other. Before going to the nomination range, they decided that they would send Chris and Chee into the elimination match up. This was not a very good idea because Chris and Chee are two of the red team’s best shooters and one of them was going home no matter what. When they reached the nomination range, everybody voted for either Chris or Chee, but when Kyle stepped up, he voted for Tim. (In the beginning, Kyle called himself the silent assassin, so that’s what we always call him.) His reason for voting for Tim was that the red team was going to lose a good shooter who had done nothing to deserve elimination. We were glad the silent assassin voted for Tim because Tim missed his shot with the Kentucky Flintlock on the last episode which was part of the reason the red team lost.

After Kyle voted for Tim, Gary voted for Tim as well, and so it was Tim against Chris. Chris won, and we were glad because we didn’t like Tim that much. We used to dislike the silent assassin, but he did make a good move so we don’t mind him any more.

As you might have guessed, we basically hate Greg Little John. We’ve always wanted him to get kicked off Top Shot, but he’s still there. On the most recent episode, the blue team won but we still got to see Greg fail.

First I want to say that another funny thing happened on that episode. On the red team, a guy named Chee didn’t do so well either. Part of the challenge was to swing across from one platform to another platform. Chee went first for the red team, and he didn’t make it across. His team members cheered him on, but he failed to make it to the platform about three times. Finally he made it, but it definitely set the red team back a lot.

Now for Greg! The gun they were using was a Kentucky Flintlock. Greg had a little trouble in practice getting the gun ready to shoot, and he also couldn’t pull the trigger because he was too weak. In the team challenge, he forgot to cock the gun, and so he couldn’t pull the trigger. He sat there for a LONG time trying to pull the trigger and finally one of his teammates asked him if he’d fully cocked the gun. He hadn’t, of course, and even after he did, he took about two minutes to shoot. He also had trouble holding the gun steady.  The red team messed up big time, or else they would have won the challenge. There are some people whom we don’t like on the red team, but unfortunately, Iggy went home, and we liked Iggy.
