Will Ferrell Joins Bear Grylls on Man vs. Wild

Sunday June 7 at 9 p.m. ET/ 10 p.m. PT

Marking the latest adventure in Discovery Channel’s long-running series MAN VS. WILD, in an episode airing Sunday, June 7 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT, Bear Grylls invited Actor/Comedian Will Ferrell to join him for an extreme adventure in the Swedish hinterland.

Without losing his infectious sense of humor, Ferrell proves his mettle through a series of physically challenging skills. Together, they tandem-abseil off a helicopter, rappel down hundred foot frozen waterfalls and build a shelter to stay warm overnight in sub-zero temperatures. Common to all MAN VS. WILD episodes, Grylls shows Ferrell what it takes to find food in the icy coniferous forests, as they climb trees, improvise snow shoes from saplings, drink their own urine and even bite into reindeer eyeballs!

“Will did an amazing job in sub-zero very unforgiving conditions,” said Grylls. “He trusted me when it mattered and we survived… And he has definitely had an adventure! He should be very proud of how he performed.”

“To be able to participate in an episode of MAN VS. WILD was a thrill of a lifetime, even though I did get urine-drunk which is sad,” said Ferrell.
