** On the 2015 show, there was Bryan Clark. Not a particularly well known figure in wrestling but still one of the more experienced competitors, he and TagTeam partner Lio Rush being the first graduates out of Maryland Championship Wrestling's academy and quickly gaining the attention of Wrestling/{{CZW}}, Wrestling/RingOfHonor and of course "Tough Enough". Though only Clark was chosen for the show([[PrejudicedForPecs no surprises there]]) he consistently placed among the top rankings week after week...and then was eliminated for failing to learn the value of humility. No less than Wrestling/MickFoley and Wrestling/BookerT argued that it proved the contest was based more on popularity than any other merits.

** A less shocking example, but still an example, was Derrick Bateman from Season 4. He was generally considered to be the best in ring technician of that season's rookies, his [[LargeHam over the top]] personality, and having the backing of [[BryanDanielson the best wrestler alive today]] made him the most consistently over. However, it's less of an example because he actually managed to make it to the final three, and the other two, Johnny Curtis and Brodus Clay, were considered to be fairly good as well, but many thought Bateman would last until the end.

* "StrictlyComeDancing" has at least one of these every season, especially with the onslaught of older contestants with two left feet in recent series. The latest (and possibly most shocking) example of this was the elimination of Jimi Mistry in week 6 of series 8. Whilst not the best dancer, he had gotten his best score of the series in that week and was easily one of the more enthusiastic contestants. However,he lost out to Michelle Williams who had been in the bottom two 3 times previously.

* Happens almost every season to a very strong competitor on ''SoYouThinkYouCanDance'', usually around the final 6 contestants. Danny in Season 3, Will Wingfield in Season 4, and most recently Janette in Season 5. The presenter, Cat Deeley, has sometimes been noticeably shocked when she reads the results. When Janette was eliminated, one of the judges even said that he had thought she'd win the whole thing.

*** It could be argued that he was the de facto winner since all the others were either formally eliminated or moved to the main roster. Bateman was the only one that remained when NXT changed its format but he was released soon after and eventually ended up wrestling in TNA as EC3.

* The Finale of [[WWEToughEnough Tough Enough 2]] had the two male performers, Jake and Kenny Layne, surprisingly lose to the female competitors Jackie and Linda, despite advertising that there would be one male and one female winner each.

* In the revival of WWEToughEnough, early on, Mickael was in the bottom three alongside his hated rival, Ryan (whose biggest challenge for the show was overcoming the EmbarrassingNickname "Skidmark" given to him by, ironically, Bill Demott). In order to decide who was leaving, StoneColdSteveAustin made them cut promos on one another. Mickael choked, and Ryan buried him. Everyone was stunned, but whether it was Mickael's failing or Ryan stepping up to the plate depends on who you ask.

* Ayako Miyake failed on the third stage during her fourth entry in ''[[NinjaWarrior Kunoichi]]''. Given that ''Kunoichi'' is [[NintendoHard just as hard as its male counterpart]], what makes this shocking? On her first three tries, ''she won the final stage.''
