Todd Palin Competes in 'Stars Earn Stripes'

Monday, June 25, 2012

Todd Palin is participating in Stars Earn Stripes. The reality competition is a fundraiser to benefit the military, first responders, and veterans.
Sarah Palin's husband Todd will compete against Laili Ali, Dean Cain, former NFL player Terry Crews and others in NBC's upcoming reality competition "Stars Earn Stripes," the network said Tuesday. The network also revealed that former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO will co-host the series with "Entertainment Tonight" personality Samantha Harris.

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).

I think that this show was a great idea and bravo to NBC for bringing the idea to life. Stars Earn Stripes received criticism before the show even aired because it was stars teamed up with the armed forces. It cheapens war, it makes it commercial, and it glorifies war: the complaints were coming from a thousand different angles. I’ve been watching the show since it premiered and I’ve got my Hopper set up to record all of the new episodes. I’m usually at work at Dish when the show comes on but I know that I can come home and see what I’ve missed. The show raises funds for military or law enforcement charities and I think that’s great. Not nearly enough is being done for the men and women returning from war or dealing with the public everyday. I think it’s a great way to honor those that are serving.
