Top Shot[edit]

In 2011, Reed appeared in the second season of History Channel's marksmen competition Top Shot. During the first half of the competition, Reed competed as part of the Red Team. His team ended up winning six challenges, and Reed was never nominated for elimination during that period. During the final half of the competition, Reed won one of the last individual challenges before the final. In the finale, he beat Brian Zins to win the competition as well as $100,000.

During one episode of the third season of the show, Reed appeared with Season 1 winner, Iain Harrison, serving as honorary team captains of the two current Blue and Red teams for one of the challenges. A $5,000 donation was made to a charity selected by the captain of the winning team, and Reed chose the Make-A-Wish Foundation. His team won the challenge. Reed appeared again as a trainer during the fourth season of the show.
