There are a few tweaks to the show this time around compared to last year’s inaugural season, but one thing remains the same. Amazing America with Sarah Palin highlights interesting people and showcases them in a way that viewers can really get to know these extraordinary Americans. Season Two of the Sportsman Channel program premiered this week with back-to-back episodes and the hour block of Palin TV gives us a good idea about what we can expect moving forward this year.Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is the host of the show once again and comedian/farmer Jerry Carroll returns as a field host. Carroll left us laughing last season and he’s back for more jokes and the willingness to try just about anything. The new field host is former Miss USA Tara Conner. She’s new at this, but already off and running with her engaging personality and caring nature.
The first episode inspires. Wounded Warriors take center stage. Wounded vets are honored with mortgage-free homes through the Operation Finally Home organization. We have the privilege of meeting some wounded vets. Staff Sergeant John McCrillis, a hero in his own right, now fights for his brothers and sisters of in arms, running a group that helps soldiers get jobs after being hurt in battle.
J.R. Martinez who sustained severe burns over 34 percent of his body while serving in Iraq also appears on the program. The Army soldier turned Dancing With The Stars champion and soap opera actor offers motivation to so many people in and out of uniform. Specialist Charlie Lemon lost his legs and a dear friend while defending America. Men like this remind us who the true heroes really are. Conner got to meet all of these men and after getting choked up in awe of their sacrifices she has a little fun riding horses and shooting guns with them.
