Miss Franco, participated in the Fourth season of Top Shot and is the first and only Hispanic that has ever participated in the competition series.  She earned the respect of her fellow competitors who gave her the nickname of “The Latin Assassin Queen” in honor to her great abilities to adapt and proficiently shoot any weapon.  Gabby Franco was the first woman in the competition to be sat out in a challenge for being considered as a thread by the opponent team.

Support Gabby Franco in this venture against 15 other male competitors to win the Title of TOP SHOT All-Star, take home the Grand Prize – $100,000 and a TOP SHOT special edition Tahoe Q5i Speedboat, provided by Bass Pro Shops.   Miss Franco has inspired Kids, women, and men of all ages nationwide and worldwide to practice and embrace the sport by showing with her petite figure that determination can make anyone achieve great things.

Few of Gabby’s best achievements are: Silver Medal at the Pan-American Games in 1999 in air pistol and participation in the Olympic Games in Sydney 2000, but the most important for Gabby was her qualification to apply for a Visa as an individual with an Extraordinary Ability what led her to her US Citizenship.
