Round 6: The Wild
challenges that you are about to read have been
designed, tested, supervised, and played by experienced
marksmen operating on a closed course. They are
extremely dangerous and should never be attempted by
anyone, anywhere, at any time.)
Two historical firearms give the
Red Team their first win, as the longtime victors of the Blue
Team started to turn on themselves. Rat Caleb was sent packign
after he couldn't sever the hangman's noose. Now just 11 remain.
The past is in the past, but Adam has
stuck knives in JJ and Andre's backs. He'd better watch his.
Welcome to Hogan's Alley... Here's your
Zapper of the week.
- Colt Peacemaker (United States,
1873), unlike muzzle-loaded weapons, this handgun introduced the
The teams will be tested on speed.
Helping you will be four-time world champion speed shooter Spencer
The Colt was as common in the Wild West
as the cell phone was today. It was viewed as a tool. It was used as a
tool. And if you had one, you rarely left home without it.
Out of all the Blues, the one that felt
the least comfortable was Chris, who will compete today. On the Reds,
Denny is the strongest, having handled the 45 before coming out for the
show. Peter also owns a Colt, so he's up there. The Reds are feeling
good about this.
So let's talk strategy. Chris volunteers
to go first. Why? Not certain.
At the Top Shot Saloon, the teams will be
playing shooting gallery. There are 50 targets. Each team will fire 10
rounds, reloading once. Team to shoot all 50 targets in the quickest
time wins. Red chooses the Blazin' Cajun Blake to sit out.
Denny, Brad, and Pete volunteer to go
first for the Reds, but the Blues are headed up first. Chris starts...
and he's 10 for 10. Then Tara goes on a tear. Adam misses his first
shot. Chris returns with five targets left. And ... TIME! We have...
Denny starts for the red. And for someone
who lives by the Colt, he's struggling. He only gets two shots out of
10. Brad follows up with seven for 10. Peter's got nine for 10. Andre
goes for 6 for 10. Kelly... only 3 for him. Brad ceases fire with 23
shots still remaining. BLUE TEAM WINS!
So what went wrong? Wide barrel... narrow
trigger... owned. But the gun shot straight for Pete and Brad. The Blue
Team... thinks that Denny should go up for being a failed cowboy. He
says that if the Red Team votes for him, he will not hold it against
him. The kicker is that everyone seems to like Denny. Brad decides to
gun (no pun intended) for Kelly, pulling Denny and Andre to his plan.
Tough loss. Pressure gets to the team as
So Kelly is going to the Elimination
Challenge, against whom?
Tiebreaker vote! Casting the tiebreaking
vote will be... BRAD.
Back at the house, the Blue Team thought
that Denny could've smoked the challenge. The game is tough, but "it is
what it is." As for Andre, he's currently stationed in South Korea, and
he's giving up all of his leave to be in the competition. You know he's
in it to win it.
Kelly & Andre will go head to head in a
shootout involving the Peacemaker. This will be more about accuracy. At
practice, they'll be shooting targets at 25 feet. Kelly doesn't claim to
be a speed shooter... He is however, an accuracy shooter, and he's
starting to think like it. Andre starts to dial it in.
In the challenge, both Kelly and Andre
will have to play a round of Top Shot poker. They'll be shooting at a
roulette with 52 cards. They have seven shots to make the best five-card
hand. So basically... Seven card stud. Best hand stays.
And both Andre and Kelly have never
Kelly: ... MISS.
Andre: 10s (ROYAL FLUSH)
Kelly: ... 10h (ROYAL FLUSH)
One more hand. This time, it's five-card
stud. And you cannot use the cards you hit.
Andre: 6s (possible straight flush)
And they're the worst poker players in
Kelly: 5h (pair of fives)
Andre: 4h (pair of fours)
Kelly: 5c (set of fives)
... and Andre is drawing dead. Andre
Robinson... you have taken your last shot. Go play poker or something.
We're down to ten shots, and things get
tricky next time.
