They also can download a Free* Trial Pair certificate from Acuvue so they can start living some of their own defining moments with crisp, clear vision and all-day comfort.

The series will be hosted by Olympic and World Championship ice dancers Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, both of whom wear Acuvue brand contact lenses. Carrie Keagan takes the helm as the lead interviewer getting the lowdown from the all-star roster.

Here’s a sneak peak at some of the insider celebrity scoop that will be revealed on the show:

* Which hottie appeared in Prince’s “Diamonds and Pearls” video?
* What sexy songstress once played homely “Hunchback of Notre Dame” Quasimodo?
* Whose baby was the first one ever born on MTV?

“Life is all about defining moments,” says show host, Belbin. “A major moment for Ben and I was when we started skating together in 1998.
