Top Shot, John

Age: 44
Hometown: Buffalo, NY
Occupation: Restaurant owner

John Guida has one goal: win the competition as some unknown restaurant guy, and make everyone stop and say “well what the hell just happened?” John runs a restaurant in Buffalo but before running the family business, he spent 10 years in competitions racking up six different state championships, multiple area championships, three top-16 National Finishes and two top-30 World finishes. Today, he hunts in the forests of upstate New York with handguns and bows. He calls himself an extremely competitive guy who likes to talk–sometimes too much.
