NBC Casting For New Bear Grylls/Adventure Show

NBC has announced that they are casting for a new outdoor adventure show to be hosted by everyone's favorite wildman, Bear Grylls. The show, which doesn't have a name yet, will pit teams of two against one another in a remote wilderness setting, with the winning team awarded a substantial cash prize. Exactly how much cash hasn't been revealed yet either. The show's description simply reads: "Teams of two will be dropped in a remote wilderness location; make it to the end and win the reward of a lifetime!"

To audition to be on the show, simply send an email to bearshowcasting@gmail.com. That email should includes the names of the two teammates, relationship to one another, occupations, short biographies, photos and contact information. Also include a brief message about why you should be picked to appear on the show. Applicants must be legal U.S. residents and be 21 years of age by February 1st, 2013. If selected, a valid U.S. passport is required, which leads me to believe that the show will take place in another country.

That is about all the details we know so far, but it sounds like the show is similar to The Amazing Race or Expedition: Impossible. Of course, having Bear as the host will bring some character and attention to the program and it will be interesting to see which setting the competition is set in and what challenges they'll give to the competitors.

So, if you have a good partner, go ahead and sign up. Who knows, you might be the next big reality TV star.

On a side note, it's been fun to follow Les Stroud's Facebook page lately as he has debated coming out and saying what he really thinks about Bear and his 'survival' tactics. I like Les.

Well nick, ask and you shall receive. I just signed us up.

I really like Les, too. But I hope he doesn't do that. Would be kind of a childish move, IMO. I'd be fully comfortable with either individual if caught in a remote survival situation. There's no doubt, despite being overshadowed by Hollywood bloat, that Bear knows what he's talking about, and is one tough, crafty, and intelligent SOB. All Les would be doing is criticizing not Bear, but the show Man v. Wild itself, which we already know is a pompous (although incredibly entertaining) production. He's better than that.

Les included several digs against Man vs. Wild in his latest series, FYI.
