Man vs. Wild returns for all new episodes starting tonight on Discovery Channel, so check out the scoop from the press release, plus some promo videos and photos of the always amazing Bear Grylls!
MAN VS. WILD returns Monday, January 12 at 10PM ET/PT with all-new episodes that push adventurer Bear Grylls to the limit, as he navigates through some of the most extreme and challenging conditions he's faced yet. Shot entirely in high-definition, the new episodes take Grylls to Transylvania, Turkey, Belize, the Yukon Peninsula, and through the Badlands of Oregon, before heading to the Dominican Republic during hurricane season. The ultimate adventure expert, Grylls uses his vast knowledge and survival expertise - which are tried and tested throughout these episodes - to show viewers how to get out of each location alive. The new episodes continue the hit Discovery Channel series' third season, which began last August.
"The new episodes of MAN VS. WILD give viewers the opportunity to venture into some of the most extreme conditions this immense world has to offer, with the ultimate survival trainer - Bear Grylls - leading the way," said John Ford, president and general manager of Discovery Channel. "Bear goes to unprecedented heights as he faces some of the most difficult challenges of his career all along the way."
These latest expeditions bring Grylls face-to-face with a killer bear, a deadly scorpion, a nine-foot boa constrictor and countless other dangers. He's forced to scale hundred-foot waterfalls, feast on bear excretions (among other less-than-gourmet delicacies), and tackle some of the worst mosquito-infested swamps he's seen, all in the name of survival. The invaluable survival techniques that Grylls portrays on MAN VS. WILD have been credited with saving various lives.
