TOP SHOT Season Three of the Competition Series from HISTORY(R) returns on Tuesday, August 9 at 10pm ET

Hosted by "Survivor" Contestant Colby Donaldson

New York, July 13, 2011- With the most physically demanding challenges yet and more surprising twists than ever before, the hit competition series TOP SHOT is back for a third season premiering on Tuesday, August 9 at 10pm ET on HISTORY. This time, an all-new arsenal of history-inspired challenges awaits 16 fearless contestants as they vie for a $100,000 prize package and the right to claim the title of "Top Shot."

The 14 marksmen and two markswomen were carefully selected from thousands of applicants to participate in this season of TOP SHOT. The contestants include a national revolver champion, two homeland security agents (who also happen to be close friends), a former Navy SEAL, two cops, a nurse and several firearms instructors. Two of the contestants, a restaurant owner and Christian camp director, are self-taught.

The shooters will have to display mastery of weapons from all eras of human history, from the most primitive (rocks) to the most sophisticated tactical firearms. Contestants will employ some of the biggest munitions ever featured on TOP SHOT, including the Gatling gun, the Hotchkiss mountain gun and the CornerShot. In addition, they must endure extreme physical tests to stay in the game. High-speed HD cameras capture the skillful execution of each test in extreme slow-motion.

The premiere of season three begins with a gauntlet of extreme challenges. 16 marksmen immediately pair off and duel with one of the world's biggest handguns. Teams are then divided into winners and losers before facing off in a surprise military challenge. In the elimination challenge, two competitors get the ride of their life on a horse-drawn stagecoach as they shoot to stay in the competition.

Survivor contestant, athlete and adventurer Colby Donaldson returns as host of HISTORY's third season of the elimination series.
