For those of you unfamiliar with Bear Grylls, Bear is a guy on survival show on TV. He gets dropped in locations with extreme geographical climates with little more than the clothes on his back. Once there, he teaches his audience, through demonstration, how to survive, as a camera crew follows him on turbo-charged segways. (I may have made up the part of the segways).
Somewhat recently, there has been controversy over how bad ass he actually is as it was discovered that he sometimes stays in hotels when the camera isn’t looking. However, the fact of the matter is that he is still bad ass because he jumped into a crevasse, and Oxford’s English Dictionary, anybody who jumps into a crevasse is bad ass.
Those that still support Bear wonder what his next challenge is. Will he be dropped from helicopter straight into the mouth of a volcano? Or will he teach his audience how to survive after being violently beaten, robbed, and then buried alive while on vacation in Tijuana? The answer is neither.
Though sources say that Bear does plan to get around to these, his next challenge will be: surviving Waterworld.
After being dropped from a helicopter into Waterworld, Grylls will demonstrate survival techniques for those stranded amongst the traders, smokers, and the vast expanses of water as a camera crew follows him on modified “sea-segways.” The end goal of this mission is to find land, the key to which is finding a girl named Enola with a map to land tattooed on her back. Whilst doing this, he will be evading the marauding Deacon and his crew of Smokers aboard the Exxon Valdez.
Grylls fully discloses that he will be sleeping in a house boat at night and that his camera crew secretly already know where land is. However, his crew has been strictly instructed not to divulge its whereabouts.
