Ronda Rousey will take her competitive spirit to a FOX reality competition show called “Stars On Mars” featuring many other celebrities.

Former WWE Raw & Smackdown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is known for her toughness and competitive nature. Whether she was making history in the UFC as one of the toughest women on the planet to competing in WWE for the first time five years ago, Ronda Rousey seems like a natural for a reality competition series…even one that’s called “Stars On Mars.”

While Ronda Rousey deals with a left arm injury, she will still be on our TV screens as part of a new FOX reality competition show.

The following press release was sent out by FOX today. There’s a preview video below as well.

3… 2… 1… LIFT OFF!


The 12 Stars Are Lance Armstrong, Natasha Leggero, Marshawn Lynch, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Adam Rippon, Ronda Rousey, Tom Schwartz, Richard Sherman, Tinashe, Porsha Williams Guobadia, Tallulah Willis and Ariel Winter

FOX announces the 12 fearless celebrities who will pack their bags and prepare for launch to the red planet as crew members on Stars on Mars, an out-of-this-world new unscripted series, premiering Monday, June 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

This summer, professional athletes, reality world megastars, triumphant entrepreneurs, renowned television and film actors, uproarious comedians and trailblazing entertainers will colonize, compete and conquer “Mars” until there is one victorious space invader, who will claim the title of “the brightest star in the galaxy.”

Celebrities will ditch their jerseys, business suits and red carpet gowns for the ultimate attire – an astronaut suit. Once on “Mars,” this group of stars will receive interstellar assignments from legendary actor and Star Trek icon William Shatner, who serves as Mission Control. Colonizing Mars could be our future… let’s send them first!

Meet the 12 crewmates joining Stars on Mars:

· Former Professional Road-Racing Cyclist and Investor Lance Armstrong

· Comedian, Actress and Writer Natasha Leggero

· Former Super Bowl Champion, Community Advocate and Entrepreneur Marshawn Lynch

· Widely known Comedic Actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse

· Olympic Figure Skater and TV Personality Adam Rippon

· Professional Wrestler and UFC champion, Olympic Medalist and Actress Ronda Rousey

· Television Personality and Restaurateur Tom Schwartz

· Sports Analyst and Professional Football Player Richard Sherman

· Multi-Platinum-Certified POP & R&B Disruptor, Singer, Songwriter and Dancer Tinashe

· Television Personality, Actress and Author Porsha Williams Guobadia

· Entrepreneur and Artist Tallulah Willis

· SAG Award-Winning Actress and Producer Ariel Winter

This summer, adventurous celebrities prepare for take-off to the red planet, where they will live, eat, sleep, strategize and bond with each other in the same space station. During their stay, they will be faced with authentic conditions that simulate life on Mars, and they must use their brains and brawn – or maybe just their stellar social skills – to outlast the competition and claim the title of “brightest star in the galaxy.”

The celebrities will compete in missions and will vote to eliminate one of their crewmates each week, sending them back to Earth. Cue the intergalactic alliances and rivalries. Stars on Mars will send these famous rookie space travelers where no one has gone before and reveal who has what it takes to survive life on “Mars.”
