WHAT, WAS TIM GUNN NOT WILLING TO DO THIS ONE? I have not watched the History Channel's new foray into competitive reality, Top Shot (or, as I prefer to call it, America's Next Top Sniper--next week, Miss Tyra gives MAKEOVERS!), but perhaps the most awesome thing about it is the biography of the host, former Survivor competitor Colby Donaldson, on the show's website. According to the bio, Donaldson is an "actor and adventurer," known for his "record-breaking" effort on Survivor (I assume this is meant to refer to the big streak of immunity challenges he won, but could also refer to his repeated appearances as a form of famewhoredom or to the record-breaking stupidity in the final tribal council of the Australia season), who is a "self taught welder and metal fabricator" in addition to his acting talents. That, my friends, is what it takes to host a reality show today.
