Did any of you catch the last episode of Top Shot on Sunday August 15th? If you did, you know that Fil-Am contestant J.J. was one of the final three contestants on the History Channel reality show. Although, the show didn’t end with the results I wanted, J.J. proved to be a worthy contestant and Filipino-American that everyone should know.
As many of you know from last month’s post on J.J Racaza Dominates on Top Shot, where I stated that this Fil-Am contestant is a badass. Well, that hasn’t changed. Watching Top Shot only made me a bigger fan of Racaza and hopefully an inspiration to many viewers out there. Racaza lasted through all ten episodes dominating in the majority of the challenges on the History Channel show. For those unfamiliar with Top Shot, The show consists of 16 contestants, split into two teams of eight, competing in various types of shooting challenges. One by one, the contestants are eliminated until only one remains. That contestant will receive the $100,000 grand prize and the title of “Top Shot.”
The show’s Filipino-American contestant, Simon “J.J.” Racaza is a Department of Homeland Security Agent, double grandmaster in the USPSA/IPSC, winning the World Speed Shooting title in both the open and limited divisions. He is also the world record holder in the Steel Challenge and consistently ranked in the USPSA top five. In the season finale, Racaza started out strong winning the elimination challenge consisting of Beretta 92F 9x19mm pistol. You can see what happens to Team J.J. in the season finale of Top Shot at History.com.
If you can’t get enough of J.J. Racaza, he’ll be in Valencia, CA shooting the World Speed Shooting Championship on August 19th-22nd. Support J.J. Racaza as he’ll be defending his Iron Sight World Title as well as his chance to go for the Open Title against the World’s Fastest shooters!
