Kate Gosselin hasn’t been heard from in a long time.
But it is about to be seen.
The former TLC personality, who rose to infamy on the small screen alongside ex-husband Jon in the train wreck that was Jon & Kate Plus 8, has booked a return to reality television.
The 47-year-old will reportedly be a cast member in something called Special Forces: The Ultimate Test, an upcoming Fox series that is a version of the British show SAS: Who Dares Wins.
Kate Gosselin is back on reality TV. Here’s a look at the busy mom in something called Special Forces.
The show will premiere on January 4.
“Special Forces: The Ultimate Test puts the celebrities you know and love through the purest, most authentic endurance test I’ve ever seen.
“In many ways, it’s more about mental strength than physical strength,” said Rob Wade, Fox’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, in a statement.
“It’s an eye-opening look at the most intense training in the world and gives insight into the determination and bravery our military displays on a daily basis, which was a life-changing experience for these celebrities.”
In a trailer for the series, which will pit Gosselin against 15 other D-Listers, the mother of eight is seen for the first time sitting at a table with no makeup and her hair disheveled…as a bag is removed from her head. .
She is then depicted walking a tightrope as someone yells, “Don’t give up!”
Other challenges include falling into the water inside a vehicle, boxing, and driving through explosions and gunfire.
At one point, as you can see above, Gosselin dissolves into a pool of tears.

Kate Gosselin has barely said much in recent months, even as her ex-spouse has continuously criticized her in public.
In August, for example, it emerged that Jon believes Kate stole $100,000 from his children after she made a couple of withdrawals from their trust funds.
Previously, Jon ripped Kate apart for ruining her relationship with most of her children.
“[Communicating with] kids living with Kate is very difficult, because I don’t have an open relationship with them,” he complained to Entertainment Tonight at the time, adding:
“I think it was a bad decision of the parents. It would have been much better if she had been more open with them and she had explained things better…
“I have distanced myself from those children.”
More specifically, Jon has accused Kate in the past of sending her son, Collin, to a special needs school when he was 13…and then forgetting about him.
Jon has said that Kate doesn’t even talk to this teenager.
“In five years he has had an hour and a half [of] contact with him,” Jon alleged in 2020, adding:
“[Collin] he lost three years of his life because he was mistakenly hospitalized by his mother. “[Collin] he was not educated during that time, which is illegal.
“Her mother could be in trouble for that.”

Kate lives at home with Leah, Alexis, Aaden and Joel; while the twins Mady and Cara are in college.
Meanwhile, Jon has primary custody of Hannah and Collin.
