Plot Synopsis

Eight celebrities train with professionals and compete against each other in complicated missions inspired by real military exercises, as they try to win a cash prize on behalf of a military, veterans or first-responder charity. Each star is paired with a special operative from a military branch or first-responder force, including former U.S. Army Delta Force and Green Berets, U.S. Navy SEALS, U.S. Marines and police officers. At a remote training facility, these pairs prepare together for missions, testing themselves physically, mentally and emotionally, as they execute maneuvers, including everything from helicopter drops into water to firing long-range weapons. The celebrity competitors include: 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; THE BIGGEST LOSER trainer Dolvett Quince; Olympic gold medalist skier Picabo Street; and WWE diva Eve Torres.
