"Lance Armstrong is a real freaking astronaut. He is a real astronaut," she says in a confessional, mixing up the former pro cyclist and the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong, who died in 2012. "He is Lance Armstrong. You need to Google him. You need to know everything about him because he is so cool," she marvels in an exclusive clip from the premiere, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

"The fact that we have an astronaut is so crazy," Winter says to fellow contestant Porsha Williams.
"You said what?" the Real Housewives of Atlanta star hilariously replies.
"I'm so confused," Winter says. "Is he gonna end up being our judge?"
In his own confessional, Armstrong, the fake astronaut, takes being mixed up with the late real astronaut all in stride. "There's probably 20-year-olds out there that get me confused with Neil Armstrong," he says. "If I were Neil Armstrong, I'd be dead. I'd prefer to be Lance Armstrong at this point."
The new reality show, hosted by Star Trek legend William Shatner, sends 12 celebrities to base camp on an imagined version of the Red Planet to undergo grueling challenges to determine "the brightest star in the galaxy." Other contestants include: comedian Natasha Leggero, Super Bowl champ Marshawn Lynch, Superbad star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, wrestler and UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, Vanderpump Rules star Tom Schwartz, football player Richard Sherman, singer/songwriter Tinashe, and actress Tallulah Willis.
