Edward Michael "Bear" Grylls OBE is a British adventurer, writer, television presenter and businessman. Grylls first drew attention after embarking on a number of adventures, and then became widely known for his television series Man vs. Wild.
Grylls can survive in virtually any environment. However, it got more captivating when added a celebrity to it. Grylls has tested the survival skills of numerous big names where they are pushed to their limits by the former British Special Forces member. It was a perfect recipe: mixing easily recognizable famous people with Grylls’s natural effervescence and tossing them into highly absurd nature scenarios.
Here is the list of some celebrities who did some of the most bizarre tasks.
1. Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar is the celebrity to join Bear Grylls recently. It was shot at Bandipur Tiger Reserve. He will follow all military-style drills with a survivalist. They both are seen roughing it out in the jungle and trying to navigate crocodile-infested waters. The actor sips on ‘elephant poop tea’ at a point and Bear Grylls slyly threw his away.
2. Courteney Cox
The famous FRIENDS star Courteney Cox also appeared with Bear Grylls. She dived into this survival TV series, but it was not a pleasant experience for her. The horrifying experience was that she had to eat maggots from a sheep’s carcass. But, she went all in and completed what she has started.
3. Michelle Rodriguez
Michelle Rodriguez is one of the most important characters of the Fast & Furious film series. She is primarily associated with action flicks. In a 2015 episode of Running Wild, she was ready to do anything while in the middle of the desert. That includes drinking her own urine. And, also boiling a dead mouse in that urine. Just a piece of advice, don’t watch it while eating.
