(WASHINGTON) -- Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin served up some down-home Alaska charm -- and a platter of moose hot dogs and bear-meat chili -- on her new reality TV show, Amazing America.
Hosting a television show is nothing new for the former governor, who began her career as a sportscaster for an Anchorage-area TV station and later hosted Sarah Palin’s Alaska on TLC.
She promises the new show, which premiered Thursday, will be “unscripted, uncensored, unchained.”
“I tell my kids, ‘Yes, we eat organic, we just have to go shoot it first,’” she told her first guest, DeeDee Jonrowe, a veteran Iditarod musher.
“Our meals happen to be wrapped in fur, not cellophane,” Palin said, noting she didn’t realize people actually bought meat until she attended college out-of-state.
In Thursday’s double-episode premiere, the conservative politician-turned-reality-show-host hit the trail with Jonrowe and her dogs.
“I love my life!” Palin screamed as she sped across the snow.
But Palin also made sure to slip in a reference to her political celebrity. “When I do some kind of hit on national television, and people see the background, they think it’s fake -- it’s not!” she said.
