Nick Lachey, Todd Palin star in ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ reality show
Nick Lachey, host of The Sing-Off, is appearing in the new reality show Stars Earn Stripes which also features Todd Palin, husband of Sarah Palin.
He jumped off a helicopter in one episode. Stars on the show compete to raise money for veterans. It premieres on August 13, 2012.
Singer NICK LACHEY put his life on the line and jumped out of a helicopter while shooting upcoming reality series STARS EARN STRIPES.
The 98 Degrees star, who is currently expecting a son with wife Vanessa Minnillo, recently signed up to compete on the program, which will see celebrities completing real military exercises in an effort to raise money for veterans and members of the armed forces.
But Lachey admits he feels lucky to have finished the show without serious injury.
He tells Entertainment Tonight, “You have to understand, this is not an exaggeration – you’re jumping out of a helicopter that’s 15 stories in the air – anything can happen. And in those moments I’m asking myself, ‘Why do I have to do this right now, why do I have to be here right now?’ (But) none of us went into this thinking, ‘OK, we’re gonna die.’
We went into it thinking, ‘OK, we’re gonna come out on the other end.'”
And the singer insists his participation on the show even spiced up his love life with pregnant Minnillo: “She was all for it… I think she actually kind of thought it was a turn on.”
Actor Dean Cain, The Bridesmaids funnyman Terry Crews, retired female boxer Laila Ali, and politician-turned-reality star Sarah Palin’s husband Todd will also compete alongside Lachey.
The show will premiere on 13 August 2012.
