Former two-time WWE Diva’s champion and current Assistant to the Smackdown General Manager Eve Torres was yesterday named the winner of NBC’s reality series “Stars Earn Stripes.”
Eve defeated seven other competitors, including both male and female actors, singers, Olympians and boxers, to claim the victory.
“Stars Earns Stripes” saw eight celebrities working with trained members of the US Armed Forces and law enforcement authorities in a series of challenges. The challenges were based on real-life military training drills.
Each celebrity competed to raise money for his or her respective military-based charity organization. As the winner, Eve raised $150,000 for the United Service Organizations (USO).
The USO is a not-for-profit company that provides entertainment and other services to the US Military.
Throughout the competition’s four episodes, Eve came first in three of the challenges, receiving praise for her dedication, respect and physical abilities.
Thanks to Eve, a competing television program that also airs on Monday nights has turned into some extra publicity for the WWE.
The Divas' motto of “sexy, smart and powerful” has finally been validated. Eve managed to overpower and outsmart her opponents to prove that WWE Divas aren’t as weak as they are portrayed on WWE television.
In an exclusive interview with WWE.com, Eve cited her training as a Diva being what got her physically fit for the competition, making her tough enough to be the last competitor standing.
Eve goes on to say that she “wasn't fully prepared for the emotional and mental part” of the show, but still managed to overcome her adversaries and fly the flag tall for the WWE and its Divas.
