'stars Earn Stripes'
The Pitch: America thanks you for your service -- by having celebs who make more money in a day than you do in a year pretend they're being soldiers!
The Premise: Eight "celebrities" team up with real military operatives to do actual military-type missions. The stars: "Dudes, we could DIE! Going on this reality show is JUST LIKE BEING A REAL SOLDIER!" The network: "We have taken every precaution to keep these people safe, and we're NOT going to end up with a massive insurance claim. They'll be fine." The military: "Anyone want to take those precautions with us? Anyone? No?"
