Our favourite adventurer Bear Grylls is going to return to our screen, well in America with a new show on NBC. The new show will be a different format from his previous appearances with two teams going head to head in extreme wild conditions. The first season will feature 8 episodes.
Paul Telegdy the President of Alternative and Late Night Programming at NBC Entertainment gave a typical gung-ho quote. “To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature,” said “He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!” Ye Ha!
Bear was a little more reserved “The programme will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life. 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.”
Bear of corse is sponsored by Craghoppers, so he’ll be donning his Craghoppers gear which you can buy online.
Gerber has launched a new range of multi-tools and survival equipment developed by Bear Grylls. The range, called the Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Series includes various survival kits, knives and fire starters – bascially everything you need to survive if for some reason you are stranded in the Amazon fighting against wild beasts for your life! (maybe a slight exageration there)
Bear worked closely with Gerber to develop the products. Our top pick is the Ultimate Knife which also has an emergency whistle integrated into the lanyard cord.
This isn’t the first time that Bear has developed his own products. He already has an established range in the outdoor clothing market.
And for all those Bear Grylls fans, you can also download the Bear Grylls Bear Essentials app. The description states that it is “the ultimate, hands-on survival tool from the ultimate survivor. Intimately presented by the man himself, this info in this app is tested and proven in the wild and may well help save your life in an emergency. A complete blend of survival hands-on advice, interactive instruction manual, wilderness quiz, mini-games and adventure photo gallery, all rolled into one.”
