Running Wild With Bear Grylls: The Challenge NEW!
Riggie is no stranger to taking on big challenges with Grylls. In 2014, he appeared on Season 5 of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, and together, they traveled to Iceland's Vatnajokull glacier, experiencing treacherous terrain.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge
Every adventure for this season was a unique one for me, and we definitely pushed the boundaries in all respects. From the jungles to the high mountains. The stars come on this show because they want the empowerment that being in the wild can give and they want to learn some skills that might help them in life. Going to the Canadian Rockies with Simu Liu was one of the toughest. We were there in winter in storms and sub-zero conditions.
Currently running on National Geographic with new episodes every Monday, the rest of the season has Grylls survive in the jungles of Costa Rica with Ashton Kutcher, the volcanic rainforest with Florence Pugh, the Sierra Nevada Mountains with Anthony Anderson, and the Great Basin Desert with Rob Riggle. All the episodes will be available to stream on August 10 on Disney+.
Outdoor enthusiast Bear Grylls is back for another season of Running Wild With Bear Grylls: The Challenge, which follows the survivalist and he embarks on an adventure with an A-list celebrity in the great outdoors. Throughout the episodes, Bear teaches the celeb survival tactics and pushes his star companion to their limits as they brave the wilderness.
Throughout the years, the survival expert has embarked on numerous outdoor excursions around the world, guiding celebrities for 48 hours. For many, their adventure with Bear is the first time these A-listers have braved the wilderness and pushed themselves physically and mentally.
"This is a young boy, he's had some really difficult moments," Bear told us of Cameron. "And we can all learn from that, that life is going to be full of difficult moments, we might not all face the challenges [Cameron's] had, but we're going to have moments and if we can tackle it with positivity and quiet courage like he can, then the world will be a better place. So that really was a unique one for me."
No one knows the wilds, or the life of an Outsider, like Bear. Throughout his wildly successful series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the British Special Forces vet and prime adventurist works with some of the most famous people on this planet. For six seasons, survival skills have been the name of the game as he teaches celebrity companions how to navigate some of the most treacherous landscapes on Earth. But the stakes are higher than ever for this seventh outing, leading to a new tagline: The Challenge.
Surviving a battle against the enemies of Asgard is a typical challenge for the Mighty Thor. Surviving the Escalante Desert however, is anything but typical for Natalie Portman. The Thor: Love and Thunder star joins the legendary survivalist for the upcoming season premiere of Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge on National Geographic.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge sees Grylls take celebrities into the wild and into some truly crazy situations. In this premiere episode, Portman is dropped into the Escalante Desert in Utah and taught some crucial skills to survive this kind of situation. 041b061a72
