Sarah Palin Talks About Killing Her Own Dinner in New Reality Show

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." One thing's certain: Palin is straight shooter - literally and figuratively.

"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 "Mamma Grizzly" 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!"
