Barack Obama set to appear on Bear Grylls show


President of the US, Barack Obama, is set to feature on an episode of a Bear Grylls show. The episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls that will air later this year.

The TV special is aimed at raising awareness about the effects of climate change on the state of Alaska. The series has welcomed the likes of Zac Efron and Kate Hudson but never a US President. Grylls puts his guests to the test, giving them survival advice such as having Kate Winslet eat earthworms.

“President Obama will meet with Grylls while visiting Alaska to observe the effects of climate change on the area. The two will then come together in the Alaskan Wilderness. President Obama will become the first U.S. president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Bear Grylls. The visit will be taped and aired on NBC later this year,” NBC said in an announcement.

The announcement comes at the same time as Obama’s visit to Alaska. He is renaming North America’s highest peak from Mount McKinley to its native name of Denali. It was renamed Mount McKinley in 1917, after President William McKinley.
