ProductionEdit

History Channel requested auditions for a reality show about competitive shooting. Potential contestants were required to fill an application form and send an audition video. After the audition process, 50 contestants were selected and auditioned personally. Finally, the sixteen contestants were selected.

The first season of Top Shot was filmed over the course of 33 days from March to April of 2010, in Santa Clarita, California. The season premiered on June 6, and concluded on August 15, 2010.

The entire season was released on DVD on January 11, 2011.

RulesEdit

During their time living in the house, contestants were not allowed to have cell phones, e-mail, newspapers, books, TV or music. Also, they weren't allowed to leave the house grounds, except for the challenges.

Every third day, teams would have a practice to prepare them for a Team Challenge. The team that loses the Team Challenge has to go to the Nomination Range the next morning. There, the losing team has to nominate two contestants to face off in an Elimination Challenge. After a practice for that challenge, the nominated contestants compete. The loser of the Elimination Challenge must leave the competition.
