President Obama to Run Wild with Bear Grylls in Alaskan Wilderness
After surviving nearly two terms in the White House and dealing with the bumpy terrain of the political landscape – can President Obama now survive in the Alaskan wilderness?
That is something audiences will find out later this year when the Commander-in-Chief appears on the NBC survival series, Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
NBC announced the news that the president, who is travelling to Alaska this week, will join Grylls on Exit Glacier in Alaska’s Kenai Mountains “to observe the effects of climate change on the area.”
But Obama won’t just be observing; he will also get a “crash course in survival techniques” from Grylls, according to NBC.
On the series, which is in its second season, Grylls shows celebrities how to survive in a rugged terrain. Past stars have included Channing Tatum, Ben Stiller and Kate Hudson.
During the Obama presidency, the leader has appeared in various and sometimes off-beat places to push a topic and agenda.
In 2014, he appeared with Zach Galifinakis on his web series Between Two Ferns to promote universal health care.
Earlier this year he appeared on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast to discuss race issues as well as the HBO music series Sonic Highways to discuss the American dream.
