'America's Got Talent: The Champions': Fans are glad Ben Blaque's dangerous arrow act wasn't cleared by judges
Ben Blaque's dangerous act had judge Alesha Dixon anxious. Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum didn't want her to go ahead with it.
What could be worse than a life-threatening act gone wrong? Nothing at the moment. 'America's Got Talent: The Champions' has brought back contestants from before, the ones who have left a mark on the show. And Ben Blaque is one of them.
As part of the act, crossbow sharpshooter Ben called on stage judge Alesha Dixon to pull the triggers to the arrows that are aimed at a board to which he is locked on to. This isn't the first time that he had pulled something like this. The last time the two were on stage, the act went South with the device malfunctioning and Alisha accidentally launching two arrows at the same time. Luckily, both of the razor-sharp arrows missed him.
Fans online were furious seeing the act because they thought Ben restrained to a board with bows being shot at him is not really a talent.
This time too, he was off the mark. Judge Howie Mandel hit the red button when he forgot the safety on his bow-arrow paraphernalia, leaving Alisha completely confused and anxious at the same time. Later, as she went on to pull the triggers one after the other, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell got edgy on their seats and discouraged Alesha to go ahead with it. Even though Ben was confident that the arrows wouldn't miss the target and hit where they are supposed to, which is away from him, but it got too tense too soon. And no one was ready for it. The daredevil was denied clearance to the next round but only keeping in mind his safety.
Meanwhile, viewers too are glad he wasn't allowed beyond a point in his act because it had gotten tad risky.
"I am sorry for him!! I am glad he is ok," a fan posted. While another wrote: "I'm glad the arrow didn't kill him." "Feel sorry for him it looked like an interesting act #AGTChampions," a fan pointed out. "He could've died... You did the right thing," expressed another user.
