Bear Grylls: Love him or hate him. If you love him, this is your chance to meet your hero. Hate him, and maybe this is your chance to possibly show him up and prove you're tougher.
The Discovery Channel is running a Fan vs. Wild Challenge contest now through April 30th. Before that deadline, those interested must submit a photo and brief essay explaining how you embrace the thrill of adventure every day and why you'd make a great candidate for the Fan vs. Wild program.
Four fans will be selected to participate in a Bear Grylls'-led boot camp with pro athletes in western Canada this June. Throughout the adventure, Bear will assess the fans' ability to embrace various adrenaline-pumping challenges. This portion of the contest will air as a multi-part video series on Discovery.com in August.
At the end of the competition, one of the four participants will be chosen to go with Bear on a full-length Man vs. Wild adventure to air on the Discovery Channel this fall.
Since this is a promotion involving Degree Men Deodorant (I assume this is the reason), only men 21 years of age and older are allowed to participate.
