Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Video


Okay - if the title of this story lured you in, you:

  1. Will watch do just about anything. (He makes things slightly more visually appealing.)
  2. Are obsessed with enemas. (Or things that involve that general area.)
  3. Are a sick bastard.
  4. Know that you might be in life or death situation some day and would like to know how to survive in the middle of the ocean when you have nothing to drink but water laced with bird poop.

If you want more Bear goodness, you can either watch him eat a fish eye after the jump, or just simply watch the season premiere of Man vs. Wild tonight @ 9:00 on the Discovery Channel.

Preview Will Ferrell’s Appearance on Man vs. Wild

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable, Video


UPDATE: Ferrell now says he did not drink his urine as previously reported, but does admit to sampling a little cornea.

I always knew was educational, but who knew it could also be funny?

On next week’s episode of the Discovery Channel show, actor Will Ferrell brings levity to what would probably be a miserable experience. The Land of the Lost star joins host Bear Grylls on a cold journey through an area far north of Sweden. During their travels, the two men will feast on reindeer eyeballs and chase that down with some nice bodily fluid.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Cable

Will FerrellLand of the Lost star will soon be lost on land.

To promote the upcoming release of his Universal Pictures pic, the comedian’s body is once again being being put to the test. Unfortunately in this case, it won’t entirely be for laughs.

In an June episode of , Ferrell will join host Bear Grylls in an area far north of Sweden where they will endure subzero temperatures. During their 48 hours together, the actor and the ex-Special Forces soldier have to create their own shelter, find food and navigate the region.

What can we expect to the see the former SNL star do? Well, he’ll be rappelling down frozen waterfalls, climbing trees and tandem-abseiling off a helicopter. Oh - he’ll also be eating reindeer eyeballs and drinking some of his own fluid.

‘Man vs. Wild’ Returns in November

Bear GryllsLooks like that little snafu with Man vs. Wild’s had little fallout. If you’ve never seen the show on the , Grylls, a survivor expert, challenges various “wild” situations with only his skill to help him survive. Well, that and a helpful crew, it seems. He was found out a few months back when it was discovered that he was getting a little help on the survival series and that the scenarios he presented on the show were somewhat different in reality. Some reports said he stayed overnight in a motel when he was supposed to be braving the wild; another report said the folks on the show constructed a raft for him to use. Discovery continued to air the series, but edited it and offered a disclaimer that some of the show’s elements were staged. And now, he’s back for a second season of the reality series on November 9th at 9:00 p.m. He’ll also appear on a special called Bear’s Mission Everest at 10:00 p.m., where he’ll (attempt to) fly a paraglider in the Himalayas. In the upcoming season, he’ll visit the Sahara Desert, Panama and Patagonia. Discovery Channel president Jane Root commented, “We continue to seek out new exciting and daring adventures for Bear, and he continues to do what he does best. From an expedition documentary to hands-on demonstrations of life-saving tips for viewers, Bear Grylls brings out the adventurer in all of us.” This go-around, there will be no question about when the crew helps out… so Grylls should avoid any further media and fan criticism. See? He is a survival expert.
