Casting call for reality TV show

While I do not normally post advertisements, I thought this beneficial enough for you, my loyal readers, to warrant me posting it …

Are you an amazing marksman? You could win $100,000 in prizes on the History Channel

If you are skilled with a pistol, rifle or any other firearm, you could win $100,000 in prizes on TV’s first marksmanship competition show. The History Channel and the producers of The Ultimate Fighter are looking for anyone with mind-blowing shooting skills and a big personality to take on exciting physical challenges with multiple guns and mystery projectile weapons.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a professionally trained shooter or a self-taught, average Joe (or Jane!). As long as you’re in good physical shape, have mastered a firearm and can adapt to new weapons and demanding physical situations, you could be America’s first “Top Shot.”


To apply, email with your name, city/state, phone number, a recent photo of yourself and a brief explanation of why you should be on the show. Deadline to apply is January 18, 2010. For more information, visit and click on “CASTING” or call 818-728-3729 TODAY!

  • Applicants must be at least 21 years of age, a resident or citizen of the United States and reasonably proficient with shooting and marksmanship

    If its the equivalent of Point Blank but in real life and shown on television, then I’m in.

  • Bummer, I only have a small personality. It’s pathetic.

  • SpudGun

    I would go in for this, but as I’m an undercover bionic ninja spy for various organizations including Taskforce 141, SHIELD and GI JOE, I can’t risk blowing my cover.

    It has nothing to do with the ‘good phyiscal shape’ aspect of the competition.

    It’s true, stop laughing.

    After this “People Speak” Howard Zinn travesty, I wouldn’t be seen on the history Channel for anytihng.

    “the producers of The Ultimate Fighter”

    This part has me raising my eyebrow, and not in a good way. While I am a fan of the sport of mixed martial arts, the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter REALLY turned off a lot of fans by becoming more of stereotypical reality TV than a competition-oriented show.

    I’m reminded of the reviewer complaint about the “gun store reality TV” show about the clientele being [i]too[/i] normal…
