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).
