A new action-packed competition show that pays homage to the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces and our first-responder services. In this fast-paced competition, eight celebrities contestants will gather at a remote training facility where they will be challenged to execute complicated missions inspired by real military exercises. Each celebrity will be teamed up with a special operative from a military branch or one of our first-responder forces, to 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.
Co-host Samantha Harris introduces the celebrity competitors: four-time undefeated world boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain, actor and former National Football League player Terry Crews, multi-platinum recording artist, actor, producer and television personality Nick Lachey, 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.
Host (retired) General Wesley Clark tells us about the operatives who will train and partner with the celebs on their missions: Dale Comstock, a former U.S. Army Master Sergeant Delta Force and Green Beret, J.W. Cortes, a former U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, Brent Gleeson, a former U.S. Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle, a former U.S. Navy SEAL sniper and best-selling author of “American Sniper,” Andrew McLaren, a former U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant, Grady Powell, a former U.S. Army Green Beret, Tom Stroup, a SWAT Commander, and Talon Smith, a U.S. Navy Specialist.
