Kate Gosselin is set to make her reality TV return in a really wild way

Since wrapping up TLC’s Kate Plus Eight in 2017, Kate Gosselin has mostly stayed out of the spotlight. Though the famous mother of twins and sextuplets attempted a comeback with 2019’s spin-off Kate Plus Date, it ultimately didn’t extend her reality TV career, lasting just one season. These days, Gosselin is best known for her early “Karen haircut,” an inverted bob that is long in the front and short in the back. When Googling the now infamous hairstyle worn by Jenny McCarthy and various “Dance Moms” stars, photos of Gosselin are the first result.

However, Gosselin still managed to grab some headlines beyond her hairstyle. Most recently, her ex-husband and former co-star Jon Gosselin accused of stealing $100,000 from the trusts meant for Hannah and Colin, the two of her eight children of whom Jon has custody. Jon says Kate used the money to buy a house, while Kate has hit back with claims he owes over $100,000 in child support. Unfortunately, time couldn’t fix the former couple’s issues all these years later.

Considering she hasn’t updated her Instagram page in over two years, one might assume Kate is ready to ditch the cameras once and for all. Instead, she just signed up for a new reality project that she’s never done before.

Kate Gosselin reported to Special Forces

Minus Jon and Eight, Kate Gosselin is stepping back into the world of reality TV. However, her return brings a twist: instead of documenting her family’s life all over again on TLC, she’s taking orders from drill sergeants. Gosselin has signed on to be one of 16 celebrity contestants in Season 1 of “Special Forces: The Ultimate Test,” an upcoming Fox show simulating special forces training camps.

In a Variety press release, Fox Alternative Entertainment president Rob Wade said, “We’ve put them through the toughest test there is. They are completely removed from society and the producers. The Staff Sergeants control everything inside the camp. They live in the middle of the desert, 100 degrees, in a place where the restrooms are literally a hole in the ground.” Wade also revealed that Special Forces has no eliminations and the contestants are expected to last all season.

Gosselin isn’t the only reality vet signing on to the series: The Bachelorette’s Hannah Brown, Dr. Drew Pinsky from Celebrity Rehab and Kenya Moore from The Real Housewives of Atlanta are all in attendance. Gosselin and Moore previously competed in 2015’s The Celebrity Apprentice on The Wrap, so the cast has already built in some drama. Other candidates include Zoey 101 star Jamie Lynn Spears, Spice Girl Mel B and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. With so many big personalities in the mix, Special Forces is sure to be explosive.
