Round 6: The Wild Wild West
July 18

(C-Note: The 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 cartridge.

The teams will be tested on speed. Helping you will be four-time world champion speed shooter Spencer Hoglund.

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... 7:35.

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 a whole.

Kelly: DENNY
Denny: KELLY
Andre: KELLY

So Kelly is going to the Elimination Challenge, against whom?

Peter: ANDRE

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 played poker.

Kelly: Ah
Andre: As
Kelly: Kh
Andre: Ks
Kelly: Qh
Andre: Qs
Kelly: Jh
Andre: Js
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: 2s
Kelly: MISS
Andre: 6s (possible straight flush)
Kelly: 5s
Andre: 4s

And they're the worst poker players in the world.

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.
