 Eve Torres praises military after Stars Earn Stripes win Eve Torres praises military after Stars Earn Stripes win

Wwe superstar Eve Torres has heaped praise on U.S. military heroes after she was crowned the champion of Stars Earn Stripes on Monday night (03Sep12). After an intense mission, the wrestling champion edged out skier Picabo Street and actor Dean Cain in the final military training challenge of the reality competition program. Torres, along with partner and Green Beret operative Grady Powell, powered through the difficult military courses week after week to win $100,000 for the USO. The 28 year old has taken to her blog to share her feelings about the big win, revealing the show has given her a new-found respect for the men and women of the armed forces. She writes, "This competition exposed me that much more to the bravery and skill of the people protecting our country, both domestically and abroad. While I am proud of my success in this competition, I know that it doesn’t come close to comparing to the accomplishments of our nation’s real heroes. "My appreciation for our troops is unwavering, and I hope that through Stars Earn Stripes, every one of you got a glimpse of what our law enforcement, and servicemen and women truly stand for. "I hope we can all agree that our troops make incredible sacrifices for our country’s wellbeing. Next time you see a uniformed military/law-enforcement (person), or meet one of our country’s veterans, remember to thank them for their service. I am sure they would appreciate the gesture."
