Watch Running Wild With Bear Grylls

Running Wild With Bear Grylls is a new NBC television show that tests the will of the rich and famous to cope with the wilderness. Bear Grylls is a British outdoorsman who challenges popular celebrities to spend forty-eight hours with him living off the land. They learn how to camp, climb and eat with very few resources and no plan for turning back in case the going gets rough; which it always does. Hollywood icons find themselves climbing rocks, leaping from heights that would make a stunt person recoil and eating things they have never eaten before and probably never will again. This challenge would seem to defeat somebody who is used to being pampered but just the opposite happens. They seem to trust Grylls and extend themselves beyond what they thought they were capable of. This often results in an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment when they finally survive the two day ordeal.
