Eve joins 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 Todd Palin, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street and “The Biggest Loser” trainer Dolvett Quince.
“Stars Earn Stripes” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET. ( PHOTOS: Eve and the "Stars" cast at the NBC press event)
The series is hosted by General Wesley Clark (ret.) – the former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO and former presidential candidate – and television personality Samantha Harris (“Entertainment Tonight,” “Dancing with the Stars”).
The eight competitors gather at a remote training facility where they tackle complicated and difficult missions that are inspired by real military exercises. Each is paired with an “operative” who is a member or a former member of our armed forces or law enforcement agencies. The operative coaches and guides their celebrity teammate on their training and each of their missions and competes along-side them. From helicopter drops to long range weapons fire – the competitors are tested physically and emotionally as they play to win and to earn a cash prize for military, veterans and first-responder based charities. Each week, one of the teams is eliminated.
From executive producers Dick Wolf (“Law & Order,” “Law & Order: SVU”), Mark Burnett (“The Voice,” “Survivor”) and David A. Hurwitz (“Fear Factor”), this extraordinary show will donate money raised through the competition to veterans’ charities. Eve is playing for the USO ( uso.org).
Committed to hiring recent vets onto the crew, “Stars Earn Stripes” hopes to inspire other employers throughout the country to make similar commitments to our returning heroes, not to mention proving how impossible their service missions really are.
