Bear Grylls' ITV Show 'Mission Survive' Cancelled


Bear Grylls

He’s been more or less a permanent TV fixture since 2005, but it looks like the public’s interest in seeing celebrities tough it out in the wilderness might be on the wane, with the news that Bear Grylls’ show ‘Mission Survive’ has been axed by ITV.

‘Mission Survive’ ran for two seasons, and featured 12 celebrities being put through their paces in a series of tough outdoor challenges. The likes of former rugby player Mike Tindall and TV actress Emilia Fox featured on the show, but this couldn’t stop it from suffering plummeting ratings last time out, and now it seems the format has been put out of its misery.

Bear Grylls Facing Criticism By Lifeboat Charity For Abandoning Son On A Rocky Island


Bear Grylls

He’s well known for putting celebrities through their paces in a bid to survive through extreme situations, but Bear Grylls has triggered an uproar by putting one of his own children in danger as part of a training exercise with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Last Thursday (August 6th), the 41 year old survivalist left his eldest son, 12 year old Jesse, temporarily marooned on a set of rocks of the coast of Abersoch, North Wales known as the ‘Half Tide Rocks’ to play the part of a stranded boy in need of rescue. He posted a picture to his Twitter account after the exercise was safely completed, and though he has since deleted it, it caused quite a controversy.

Kate Winslet Bear Grylls

Kate Winslet has channelled the role that brought her to superstardom while taking part in a new TV show with Bear Grylls. Standing on the side of a Welsh cliff held up only by ropes and staring straight down vertically, the British actress couldn’t resist re-creating THAT famous scene from Titanic with Jack and Rose at the front of the ship.

“Jack, I feel like I’m flying!” she cried out, temporarily releasing her harnesses to throw her arms out to the side while being guided down a sheer mountain face in Snowdonia, Wales. The noted explorer reciprocated with impeccable timing, shouting back “Kate, do you trust me?”

Bear Grylls Teaches Novice Explorers How To Survive In New Show


Bear Grylls

If you don’t know what Bear Grylls is famous for, then let us explain: drinking his own faeces, wrestling alligators, sleeping on the sides of mountains and wearing snakes appear all on in curriculum vitae. Now, though, he’s going to be taking novices out in the wild to teach him his ways.

Bear GryllsBear Grylls will be in teaching mode for his new show

“I’ve always got such a kick out of seeing people’s growth and seeing people’s confidence build. They start off really nervous and then you empower them with good survival skills,” Grylls explains of his new show. “We just take 20 regular guys—not experts, just regular people who have amazing stories—and throw them into the wild and test them a bit and teach them along the way.

Bear Grylls Says Kate Middleton Is An “Incredible Role Model” For The Scouts


Kate Middleton Bear Grylls

It’s not only kids that can don the scout uniform and start collecting those elusive badges, you know; adults can too! Since Kate Middleton, 31, joined the Scouts last year, more than 2,800 new adult volunteers have joined up, representing the second biggest rise since 1986.

Chief Scout, TV star Bear Grylls, who was present as the pregnant Middleton honoured the achievements of hundreds of Scouts at Windsor Castle, said: "The Duchess is an incredible role model and she helps us show that Scouting's not just for boys. She's also such a generous volunteer and everyone is so excited to have her in the Scouting family. Many people have followed her lead and are getting involved and enjoying the adventure." 17-year-old Lee Craven, from Hook, Hampshire was one of the more adventurous scouts honoured at the event. He helped drag a friend from an icy canal after he fell in in the dark. Lee said: "I hooked my feet under a tree stump and tried to reach for his hand. It was pitch black but I managed to pull him to the side to safety. It was quite easy because of the adrenalin."

PHOTOS - Skyfall Premiere Red Carpet Report: Plunging Necklines And Patriotic Pantaloons


Kelly Brook Tamara Ecclestone Bear Grylls Daniel Craig Naomie Harris

Last night, the Royal Premiere of the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall took place at London’s Royal Albert Hall. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first ever James Bond movie, so last night, the stars were out in force and the red carpet provided almost as much of a spectacle as the movie itself.

In the battle of the plunging necklines, Kelly Brook triumphed, despite fierce competition from Tamara Ecclestone. Kelly wore a glittering floor length dress; a classic design that would have looked fitting on any red carpet, for any Bond movie over the last half a century. She wore her loose and accessorised with a cream-coloured clutch bag and bold red lipstick, looking effortlessly glamorous. Ecclestone, meanwhile, stopped out in a daring, long – sleeved emerald green dress with subtle leopard print, with a neckline that sunk almost to her waistline. The result was certainly eye catching and may have had some people wondering which cost more... the dress, or the cleavage?

Bear Grylls Sets Up Camp On NBC With 'Get Out Alive'


Bear Grylls

Six months after leaving the Discovery Channel, Bear Grylls has signed up to front a new reality show for NBC, titled 'Get Out Alive.' The fearless adventurer will host the show that features two teams attempting to survive in the wild, reports the Los Angeles Times.

NBC has given the green light to the series, ordering eight episodes and setting aside a prime-slot slot for next summer. In a statement announcing the deal, Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC, said, "To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature. He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!" Though the creative details of 'Get Out Alive' are yet to be revealed, it's likely the teams will be dropped in some remote spot in the Sahara or the Antarctic and forced to do whatever it takes to survive!

Though Grylls has established himself as a popular television personality, he arrives at NBC on the back of controversy. He raised eyebrows in 2006 when it emerged his show 'Man vs Wild' was misleading viewers about some of the situations in which Grylls found himself in. Earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter reported how the Discovery Channel terminated his contract after he refused to participate in two projects he was contracted for.



New 'Survivor' Style Reality Show Planned For Bear Grylls


Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls hasn't always had it easy in the United States, but the British explorer and survival expert is back on his feet again in the country after it was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter that his new show Get Out Alive (a working title) will take on a reality format that will test two teams of people in what we presume is going to be a set of physical and endurance challenges surrounded by the harsh climes of nature. The Hollywood Reporter are describing it as a Survivor-style program and it's been picked up by NBC for eight episodes.

"To meet Bear is to meet a force of nature," Paul Telegdy, NBC alternative president, said in a statement. "He is a magnetic and charismatic talent, whose infectious enthusiasm for adventure inspires people to push themselves beyond their limits. These contestants are in for the ride of their lives!" Grylls added: "Get Out Alive will be raw, tough and unrelenting, but it will also inspire and teach the essentials that one day may just save your life. The goal is to empower people with the ultimate in both survival and teamwork, and that brings incredible reward... but first there must be some pain."

Grylls had been on the network Discovery since 2006 with his show . His relationship with them ended badly last March though after it was alleged he was taking too long getting working on two unannounced projects for them.


Bear Grylls Breaks Shoulder After Antarctic Fall


Bear Grylls Channel 4

Television adventurer Bear Grylls has suffered a broken shoulder while taking part in a charitable expedition in Antarctica.

The 34-year-old presenter fell while climbing an ice mountain on a trip to promote the use of alternative energies as bio-fuels.

Details of the accident have not been confirmed but the former SAS soldier is thought to have been airlifted to safety.

The father-of-two will be treated in South Africa - a seven-hour flight away from Antarctica - before returning to the UK, it is believed.

A spokesman for the Channel 4 wild man confirmed Grylls was "in a lot of pain".

"He is calm and collected - but in pain," he was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.

"It is par for the course for the sort of thing that Bear does - this was a dangerous trip."

A statement from the Discovery Channel - for whom Grylls presents the Man vs Wild show - confirmed he had been taking part in an expedition for Ethanol Ventures to promote the potential of alternative energies like bioethanol.

"Bear has a strong religious faith and a loving family to help speed his recovery," the network said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Bear as he makes the long trip back to the UK."

Grylls' programmes - which typically see him stranded in remote areas - attracted controversy last year after it was admitted that some segments had been cleverly edited.

Channel 4 later apologised for misleading audiences and said all future programmes would be "100 per cent transparent", adding: "All elements of the filming will be explained upfront to our viewers."
