Two Kent marksmen survived the first episode of the History Channel reality show “Top Shot” on Wednesday night.

You can read my profile of Kyle Sumpter and Kelly Bachand here. It ran in last week’s GO section.

The elimination style ‘Big Brother’-meets-‘Survivor’ style show will net the winner a cool $100,000. The show, now in its fifth season, is built around testing the skills of expert marksmen using a variety of weapons and challenges. There were 16 contestants going in to the show tonight. Now, there are 15. (Contestant Greg Littlejohn was eliminated.)

This season features “All Stars” from previous seasons.

Tonight’s show involved a variety of challenges including a mortar filled obstacle course and a grenade launcher. The show uses high speed cameras (to capture flying bullets) and plenty of pyrotechnics.

Bachand did very well on the obstacle course and Sumpter did well using a revolver, missing the bullseye by only 1.1 inches.

Check your local listings for exact times but in Tacoma on Comcast it broadcasts at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays.
