The good news is, it’s not Bristol again. She has her own reality show about dating and raising a kid and being a drain on humanity that will air in the fall on one of those networks that caters solely to women and as such allowed to be slightly worse than general television.
The bad news is, the latest Palin reality television project, involves previously-normal Todd Palin, the father of the clan, who had, until now, escaped the pull of attention whoredom because he had better things to do, like work and shoot moose for family dinners.
The show is part of NBC’s late summer/fall lead-in line up, and will pit Todd against B- and C-List celebrities competing to fail at joining the American military also involves General and former Presidential candidate Wesley Clark who will lead his “troops” in a series of training missions against America’s worst enemy, reality.
NBC’s upcoming military-themed competition series Stars Earn Stripes has lined up a celebrity cast, plus enlisted a former NATO commander as its host.
Stars Earn Stripes will feature celebrities competing in tough military training exercises and EW.com has the exclusive online cast scoop. NBC has tapped General Wesley Clark (ret.), the former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO and 2004 presidential candidate to host the show along with TV personality Samantha Harris (Entertainment Tonight, Dancing with the Stars).
The celebrity competitors include boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain (Out of Time), former NFL player Terry Crews (The Expendables), singer Nick Lachey (The Sing-Off), Sarah Palin’s husband Todd Palin, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street, The Biggest Loser trainer Dolvett Quince and WWE star Eve Torres.
Terry Crews has this in the bag. And, although it seems a bit…strange…that Wesley Clark, who once was a force behind ending the war in Iraq on slightly more legitimate cable news programming to accept a job hosting a cheesy summer-filler reality game show, it seems to be good news for any failed Presidential candidate as far as post-campaign job prospects go.
