Eve Torres is preparing to earn her reality television stars and stripes…
The 27-year-old part Nicaraguan American former WWE Divas champion will be competing in NBC’s upcoming military-themed competition series Stars Earn Stripes, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Stars Earn Stripes will feature celebrity contestants taking part in tough military training exercises.
Along with Torres, who got her big break as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit Dance Team, the list of celebrity competitors includes boxing champion Laila Ali, actor Dean Cain, former NFL player and actor Terry Crews, singer and television host Nick Lachey, Sarah Palin’s husband Todd Palin, Olympic gold medalist Picabo Street and The Biggest Loser trainer Dolvett Quince.
Meanwhile, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO and 2004 presidential candidate General Wesley Clark (ret.) will host the show along with Entertainment Tonight’s Samantha Harris.
“This new series pays tribute to members of our dedicated armed forces and civil law enforcement and I know that the winnings, which will be donated to first-responder charity and veterans groups, will make a difference and send an important message,” said Clark in a statement.
Torres and her fellow competitors will gather at a training facility where they’ll tackle complicated and difficult “missions” inspired by real-life military exercises. Like on Dancing With the Stars, each celebrity will be partnered with an expert — in this case, an experienced member of the U.S. military or a law enforcement agency.
Contests range from helicopter drops to long-range target shooting, with the celebrity and the veteran competing as a team. Each week, one team is eliminated.
Stars Earn Stripes will debut with a special two-hour episode on Monday, August 13, at 8 p.m.
