Los Angeles, CA (KSDK) -- A local hero came out on top during the finale of NBC's Stars Earn Stripes on Monday night.

It was a show where real life heroes of the United States military and police teamed up with celebrities to put them through what it takes to serve and protect.

U.S. Army Green Beret and St. Louis native Grady Powell was paired with WWE diva Eve Marie Torres throughout the series where they successfully completed several missions and challenges to make it to the finale.

The pair competed in the final against Olympic skier Picabo Street and actor Dean Cain along with their operatives.

The final mission involved jumping out of a helicopter, climbing aboard a ship and shooting targets.

Powell and Torres completed the challenge with the fastest time, winning them the entire competition.

Torres won $100,000 to her charity of choice, the USO, and Powell was awarded a new Ford F-150 truck.

Powell stopped by NewsChannel 5 before the show premiered in August to talk with Kay Quinn on First at 4.

Way to go Grady!
