Bear Grylls is ready for his next adventure.m. NBC has greenlit “Get Out Alive” — an “extreme adventure reality-competition series” headlined by Grylls, the network announced Oct. 8. The “Man vs. Wild” star’s new gig comes after he parted ways with Discovery earlier this year over a contract dispute. “Get Out Alive” will “test teams of two beyond their most extreme imaginations in the wild,” according to NBC.“‘Get Out Alive’ will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life,“ Grylls said in a statement. “The goal is to empower people with the ultimate in both survival and teamwork, and that brings incredible reward. But first there must be some pain.”The show is slated to premiere in summer 2013. NBC has ordered eight episodes.

  1. you can’t drink your on urine because it is full of tnoxis- Bunk!! Only if you are sick, on drugs, etc. Do a little basic research. Many a man has survived from drinking his urine. Read Sufferings in Africa for one good example.I frankly do not understand how sleeping in a Hotel makes someone fake? And yes there are plenty of things that Bear does that would get the average Joe in deep trouble if they tried the same. However he has climbed Everest and sailed the South Seas. And if he was SAS TA and not regular SAS that is by no means a cub scout organization. Why he always seems to want to eat stuff alive and kicking vs building a fire and cooking it is beyond me. Les on the other hand sometimes gives the impression that he could go hungry in a supermarket. Oh yeah and lets not forgot the African plains one where he thinks it is a good idea to poke a stick in a hole it was full of some pretty nasty wasps! Les has studied under some great survivalists including John McPherson (Prairie Wolf).As another article pointed out here there are two different philosphies in the two shows. Les is more about surviving where you are whereas Bear is all about getting back to civilization.I have attended some survival schools included Air Force SERE & Tom Brown’s and I can see useful information in both shows. I enjoy watching both though I do get more chuckles from Bear. I particularly laughed hard when he drank the liquid from the camels stomach and then regurgitated all of it almost immediately.If you are into survival then watch both. There is something to be learned. Bear’s technique for determining N,S,E,W will work whether he stayed in the Hilton or on a rock outcropping the night before. And Les’ techniques for building a fire from a variety of sources work even if he can’t figure out that you should not sleep on the ground in the jungle or freezes his butt off because he can’t remember that thing called a debris hut .I like em both, and would love to go on an outing with Les don’t think I could keep up with Bear- and I sure as hell am not crawling into some dank small cave thank you very much!
