“Stars Earn Stripes” Premieres and Contestants Nickname Todd Palin “Rambo”
Stars Earn Stripes premieres Monday August 13th at 8/7c on NBC. We chatted with some of the stars to find out more about the fast-paced competition show that pays homage to the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and our first responder services. The star-studded cast includes four-time undefeated world boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain (“Out of Time,” Five Days of War”), actor and former National Football League player Terry Crews (“The Expendables 2,” “The Newsroom”), multi-platinum recording artist, actor, producer and television personality Nick Lachey (NBC’s “The Sing-Off”), Alaska businessman and four-time Iron Dog snowmobile race champion Todd Palin, NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, and WWE diva, Eve Torres.
These eight celebrities gather at a remote training facility where they will be challenged to execute complicated missions inspired by real military exercises. Each will be paired with a special operative from a military branch or one of our first-responder forces who train alongside their partners and compete in the missions with them. Each of the teams is competing for a cash prize on behalf of a military, veterans or first-responder charity.
We asked Nick Lachey, Terry Crews, Todd Palin, Dean Cain, and General Wesley Clark to talk about grueling missions they carried out, why they think this show will change the way people see the military, and what it was like working with Todd Palin…..they nicknamed him “Rambo” to find out more click here:
