Fan vs. Wild: You + Bear Grylls = Adventure!


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.

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.

  1. This is such an amazing opportunity, unfortunately after getting super excited and running to the computer to sign up I learned that you have to be 21! Hopefully Bear does this again in 2 years!

  2. That story is REALLY old news, and Bear has gone to great lengths to make sure it doesn't happen again. It's a non-issue at this point.

  3. Why is there a limit on how old you can be to be considered for the Fan vs. Wild contest? Aren't true adventures ones who do things that others don't think possible or haven't done before??? Shouldn't there be other tangible reasons to elimate an entry rather than based on a group as a whole? I mean, wouldn't it be awesome to show the world on Man vs. Wild what a person can do if their heart is truly into it!
