Forget Chuck Norris. Send in Todd Palin
By Gary P Jackson
Looking at the previews of Stars Earn Stripes it would seem America has a new action hero, and his name is Todd Palin.
Not only is Todd Palin in excellent physical shape, a body no doubt honed from decades of commercial fishing and racing the brutal 2000 mile long Iron Dog snow machine championships, he’s made a lot of friends on the show. We’re hearing comments like this from Navy SEAL Chris Kyle [the greatest sniper in American history]: “Going through that knee-high mud will drain anyone except Todd Palin.He’s kind of like God walking on mud out there.” And: “You don’t need anyone else. Forget Chuck Norris,send in Todd Palin!”
Todd [and Sarah] have also gotten huge praise from Iraq war veteran Andrew McLaren.
NBC has released some teasers, including this called Todd Palin, One Man Army:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Here’s an overall look at the series Stars Earn Stripes:
One of the cool things about the show, besides the competition, is everyone is not only competing to win this thing, they are also looking to earn money for charities that benefits military and law enforcement. Todd is supporting Armed Services YMCA Alaska, and if he wins, that’s where the money will go.
Kevin Scholla interviewed Todd this week for SarahNet Radio.
Todd talks about a variety of topics, from Stars Earn Stripes, to politics, the future of his Iron Dog competition, to David Lee Roth vs Sammy Hagar in Van Halen.
Todd’s a low key guy and quite humble. The kind of guy you’d love to hang with.
Stars Earn Stripes premieres Monday night on NBC.
