Press Release:

Bear Grylls, the world’s most iconic survival expert is back on Discovery Channel this April with a three-part BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL where he demonstrates more life-saving skills in some of the toughest environments on earth. Premiering every Monday at 9:00 p.m., starting April 15, the BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL features highlights from Bear’s many perilous adventures over the years. Having been to the ends of the earth, seasoned adventurer, television host and author, Bear is no stranger to extremes. In the BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL, explore some of the most unforgettable scenarios including the most vile food and liquids he has ever had to consume to survive. The BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL encores every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., Friday at 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., and Sunday at 10:00 p.m.

The BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL kicks off with a typical day with Bear where the contemporary Indiana Jones takes you around the world - Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Northern Australia, the Sahara desert, Guatemala, North Africa, Dominican Republic, Namibia, Belize, Siberia, Patagonia and the United States - and reveals his secrets and techniques for surviving the most extreme landscapes and situations. Discover how to construct emergency shelters and use what you can find to help you, including the remains of a seal as a wetsuit and heather as snowshoes. Lose your way? Learn how to become a human compass using just leaves, water, wire and your hair, and how to use the mucus secreted from mushroom coral as sun block. Also, witness once again some of Bear’s wildest hygiene tips with “cowboy loo paper” and “nature’s toothbrush”, as well as his ingenious solutions for shelter by making sleeping bags from the carcasses of dead animals or building shelters in the Sumatran jungles.

Roast skunk anyone? In BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL, viewers are all cordially invited to dine with Bear, but be warned - the culinary offerings are more foul than fowl! In the wild, Bear has to make do with whatever he can catch or find for food – dead or alive. In the BEAR GRYLLS SPECIAL, Bear shares his personal guide to the highly unusual food and drinks that can be scavenged from the wilderness, some of which are downright the most disgusting eats Bear has ever had to swallow. The menu starts with an aperitif made with freshly squeezed elephant dung, and includes such delights as field fresh death stalker, Bouillon De Moules Et Asticots Aux Arôme De Chaussette aka mussel and maggot broth with a hint of sock, frogs legs and snails a la Bear, hand caught whip scorpion, and the Saharan Special raw goat testicles. For dessert, a special cheese board of weevil grub and goo along with some honey. And for a nightcap, a shaken not stirred snake skin martini of innards and urine. Bring your own strong stomach, it is certainly not a meal for the squeamish!

Cannot get enough of Bear and his adventures? Discovery Channel recently announced in February that he will be coming home to the network internationally in an all-new series, BEAR GRYLLS: ULTIMATE SURVIVORS, slated to premiere in Southeast Asia in the fourth quarter of 2013.

WILD, the six-part series takes Bear’s survival expertise one step further as he reveals the incredible stories of ordinary people stranded in devastatingly dire situations.
