Todd Palin will be one of the competitors in the cast of NBC’s new military-themed reality show, “Stars Earn Stripes” the network said Tuesday. Hosting the series will be Gen. Wesley Clark (Ret.), former Supreme Allied Commander (Europe), along with co-host Samantha Harris from “Entertainment Tonight.”
On the series, which premieres on NBC with a two-hour episode on Aug. 13, competitors will face off at a remote training facility as they take on missions inspired by actual military exercises. Paired up with “operatives” who formerly served in the armed forces or in a law-enforcement agency, the contestants will compete for cash prizes for military, veterans and first responder-based charities.
The full list of competitors includes boxing champion Ali (who’ll compete for Military Child Education Coalition); “Lois & Clark” star Cain (competing for the Wounded Warrior Project); Crews (playing for the Pat Tillman Foundation); Palin (whose charity is the Armed Services YMCA Alaska); singer Nick Lachey (competing for the Badge of Honor Memorial Foundation); Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street (playing for Hiring Our Heroes); “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince (playing for Got Your 6); and WWE diva Eva Torres (competing for the USO).
