Here’s one for fans of Bear Grylls and his show Man vs. Wild. It seems that Bear has teamed up with Degree Men to launch a new contest that could send you, along with three other winners, out into the wilderness with Bear himself, where they’ll complete a series of outdoor challenges that will be filmed for an upcoming web series Fan vs. Wild.
The contest is dubbed Fan vs. Wild and adventure seekers are encouraged to go to the website, where they can submit a photo and write a brief essay explaining why they should be one of the four people chosen to take part in the show. You’ll want to demonstrate that you have a sense of adventure, and how you incorporate that into your life.
The contest runs until April 30th, at which time the four winners will be chosen. They’ll then get the opportunity to take part in a “boot camp” led by Bear and a group of specially selected professional athletes.
That boot camp will be the basis of the webisodes that will appear on FanVsWild.com beginning in August. Better yet, one of the four members finalists, most likely the one that survives, will be featured on an episode of Man vs. Wild with Grylls later this year.
This is your opportunity to meet Bear and go hang out with him in the wild. Who knows, you might even be able to show him a thing or two! 😉 Sounds like a fun contest.
