Tonight, you can see Idaho skiing sensation and 1998 Gold Medalist Picabo Street on a brand new NBC show in primetime!

She is one of the stars of Stars Earn Stripes, and it airs tonight at 7 p.m. on KTVB. The show is hosted by retired General Wesley Clark.  It's an action-packed competition show that honors the men and women who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, and our first-responder services. According to the website, eight celebrities will gather at a remote training facility where they will be challenged to complete complicated missions inspired by real military exercises. Each participant will be paired with a special operative from the military, or first-responder forces. They train alongside the stars, and do the missions with them. It should be pretty challenging to say the least! 

The best part? Each of the teams is competing for a cash prize for a military, veteran or first-responder charity.

Check out the preview below, and see what Picabo is in for!
