Not everyone is Brian Wilson. We get that. But when you’re talking about gamers who rack up Battlefield 3 headshots by the hundreds, you’d expect at least some of that aim to translate to the real world.

Not everyone is Brian Wilson. We get that. But when you’re talking about gamers who rack up Battlefield 3 headshots by the hundreds, you’d expect at least some of that aim to translate to the real world. In the case of The Controller, however, it's clear that e-sports and real sports are two very different ball games.

This week’s episode of The Controller tests the throwing arms and fraying nerves of five remaining pro gamer/noob teams, who face mud, exhaustion, and a set of life-sized cardboard cutouts on their way to the $50,000 grand prize. Find out who wins, who fails, and who actually played Little League at some point in their lives when you watch the video below:
