Has anyone seen ths show, this guy risks his life many times every episode. Its nutty, he is dropped via a plane into crazy parts of the world with nothing at all, and he survives by any means possible. His goal for each show is to find people and civilization...

"Bear Grylls is a seasoned adventurer who served with the Special Air Service, a special forces unit of the British army, where he was trained as a survival expert. His experiences include climbing Mount Everest, crossing the freezing North Atlantic Ocean in a small, open boat and climbing a Himalayan peak described by Sir Edmund Hillary as 'unclimbable'. He has been places and done things that would defeat most normal people. But now, he is up against something completely different.

In each episode of Man vs. Wild Bear strands himself in popular wilderness destinations where tourists often find themselves lost or in danger. As he finds his way back to civilization, he demonstrates local survival techniques, including escaping quicksand in the Moab Desert, navigating dangerous jungle rivers in Costa Rica, crossing ravines in the Alps and surviving sharks off Hawaii."

Fridays at 9 p.m ET/PT

In each episode of Man vs. Wild, adventurer Bear Grylls strands himself in popular wilderness destinations where tourists often find themselves lost or in danger. Once there he finds his way back to civilization, demonstrating local survival techniques along the way.

Moab Desert, Utah
Premieres Fri, Nov. 10, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

The Moab Desert in Utah is one of the top extreme sports destinations in the United States, with more than a million visitors each year. But sweltering temperatures and deadly predators can make it very dangerous. Bear is dropped into the desert to demonstrate how a lost hiker can make it back to civilization, with merely a bottle of water, a knife and a flint. On his journey, he travels down a maze of narrow canyons, stumbles upon rattlesnakes, and escapes quicksand, showing viewers how to survive in one of the harshest environments on the planet.

Costa Rican Rain Forest
Premieres Fri, Nov. 17, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Each year, 500,000 Americans visit Costa Rica to explore some of the world’s most amazing and environmentally significant wilderness preserves. Last year alone, more than 50 visitors had to be rescued by the Red Cross. Bear sets out on an incredible jungle adventure as he parachutes into the rain forest of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula to demonstrate how someone lost in the jungle can make it out alive. His journey takes him up 100-foot trees and down waterfalls that descend more than 120 feet. He encounters snakes, mosquitoes and dangerous river currents, while searching for food and water and setting up camp.

Alaskan Mountain Range
Premieres Fri, Nov. 24, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

Thousands of skiers, snowboarders and mountain climbers visit Alaska each year in search of virgin snow, and hundreds of people end up lost in the wilderness. Armed with only a bottle of water, a knife and a flint, Bear’s challenge is to make it to the coast from where he hopes to find signs of civilization. During his journey, he travels down extreme mountain slopes, over glaciers and through bear-infested forests, and navigates a small boat through treacherous ice floes. Bear shows viewers what it takes to survive in one of the coldest environments on earth.

Hawaii – Mount Kilauea
Premieres Fri, Dec. 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT

The Big Island of Hawaii is home to the world’s most active volcano, Mount Kilauea. Since 1992, it has been in a state of constant eruption, spitting out clouds of poisonous sulphuric gases from the soil. Here, the landscape is denuded of plant life, devoid of water and few animals are ever seen. Beneath the unstable surface lies a river of molten rock boiling at temperatures above 2,000 degrees F. Surrounding this volcanic landscape is a dense rain forest, which offers environmental relief but features dangers of its own. To highlight the skills necessary to survive, Bear abseils from a helicopter into this treacherous expanse and demonstrates how to create a gas mask, escape from a moving lava flow, find water in a lava tube and get honey from a bee's nest.
