‘Stars Earn Stripes’ Operative Cortes: Todd Palin is “here for something much bigger than just himself”

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 21, 2012

Video retrieved from  .

The full version of the video can be viewed  here.

If anything, Episode 2 of ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ was even more action-packed and suspense-filled than Episode 1.   A close tie involving a fraction of a minute (a difference of 17 seconds)  between the two slower teams resulted in a shootout that eliminated Terry Crews and his operative from the competition.  The remaining competitors will compete again on next week’s show.

Before their second assignment, the celebrities had to go through another session of basic training.  Todd Palin remarked, “You can never have enough training.  The more training the better.”

We got to watch Todd in target practice, when he was hitting dead center.   It looked like practice paid off.   Operative Cortes said in a vignette that accompanied the target practice scene:  “After speaking with Todd and learning how his son was serving in Afghanistan, and how he hopes to make his son proud of him, I can see it in his eyes, man. I know he’s here for something much bigger than just himself. That’s going to keep us alive in this competition.”

After training,  Todd’s squad was the first to compete.  He and Leila had to drop from a helicopter onto the roof of  an 8-story building,  eliminate a fuel depot,  rappel down the building into a truck, and then take out 10 more targets before jumping into a truck that drove over a fuel line that exploded behind them.

Laila Ali had to overcome her fear while rappelling down the building.  Todd encouraged her as they descended:  “”Good job, you got it!  …  Good job, Leila!”

Todd took out the first 3 targets with one shot each.   Chris Kyle remarked, “Todd Palin, he’s just a natural outdoorsman,  shooter, I mean, Todd knocked it out of the park. ”

As the squad was jumping into a truck and driving away,  Operative Cortes said,  ” I think Todd and I – we represent the everyday guy.  We weren’t born with certain physical attributes, but what we are are people who care, and we care enough to take risks.”
