It looks like Sarah Palin will be one of the biggest cheerleaders for NBC’s new show, “Stars and Stripes,” as she says her hubby Todd Palin will be playing to win on the reality competition show (is it just me or does it seem like all the Palins are on reality television shows these days?).
The former Vice Presidential candidate along with her husband sat down with Parade Magazine and talked about the military-inspired show. I have a feeling that Todd might be one of the top contenders on the show, if you ask me. Here are some snippets of what they said:
The most difficult thing about filming Stars Earn Stripes…
TP: “Just some of the missions that we were going through and the level of danger and the mental, emotion, and physical strain. I knew that we were going to do some pretty gnarly stuff, but I didn’t expect jumping out of helicopters!”
How the Palin family reacted to Todd joining the series…
TP: “I put it in front of the family before I made the decision to participate. They were definitely supportive.”
Ccheering Todd on from the sidelines?
SP: “I support him in his commercial fishing, snowmobile racing, flying, raising five kids, and everything else that he does! I supported him wholeheartedly. This was something very worthy and very fun to support. It was such an awesome experience for Todd.
With the serious athletes competing on this series, was Sarah concerned about how Todd would do in some of the more challenging missions?
SP: “No because Todd’s a hardcore, kick-butt athlete — that’s what a commercial fisherman is! All of the things he does in real life as a racer and a pilot came together very well for him as a competitor. I’m looking forward to watching it as a family.”
