Bear Grylls has climbed Mount Everest, endured dozens of bone-crushing injuries, explored the world’s most unforgiving and desolate locations, confronted dangerous creatures and gone to extremes to survive in the wild (frozen yak eyeballs, anyone?). Now, the world’s most famous survivalist is off on another treacherous adventure, and this time… he’s taking 20 ordinary Americans along for the ride. Welcome to “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls”. In this ultimate test of strength and endurance, both inner and physical, 10 teams of two (made up of friends or family members) will be stranded for 25 days in the remote landscapes of New Zealand. Their mission? Survive the wild, journey as a group and avoid elimination. Teams will rise and fall on each journey, and allegiances will be tried and tested. At the end of each episode, Bear will send home the team that he believes is the least likely to “Get Out Alive.” And in the end, one team will emerge from the wild to claim victory. Do you have what it takes to go the distance? Powerful, emotional, breathtaking and epic, it’s the Bear Grylls adventure competition that gives “extreme” a whole new meaning.
