Former "Man vs. Wild" host Bear Grylls wants you to get out alive. Well, alive might be an exaggeration, but if one of the contestants on his new NBC show, "Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls," plays the game right, there's a cool half-million dollars at stake.
In this totally insane reality series, teams compete in various survival challenges, but many fans are wondering if drinking your own pee is really worth $500,000. Here are the most shocking highlights from the "Get Out Alive" premiere:
In true Bear Grylls style, the first episode opened with Grylls jumping out of a plane. Why land the plane when you can just jump out of it, right? The man's a total daredevil.
It wasn't long after Grylls hit the ground that he was making the contestants eat raw fish eyeballs to help them rehydrate. Needless to say, some of the contestants were grossed out.
This poor go-getter looks like she's about to lose her mind.
But, oh no, Grylls didn't stop there! The contestants would have to consume something even more disgusting than fish eyeballs. As a way to test their mettle, Grylls had one member of each team pee into a jar.
The urine was then mixed with muddy water, and one person on each team had to drink the hot, muddy pee concoction! Austin definitely took it like a champ, though.
Luckily for him, Austin's reward for being the best pee drinker was an inspired bit of product placement by Crest. Austin and his dad were so excited to see toothbrushes, toothpaste, and mouthwash!
Crest did a great job with its social media tie-in for "Get Out Alive." This tweet definitely made some fans laugh:
So, let's recap the premiere's menu: fish eyeballs and urine. Yup, "Get Out Alive" is officially the grossest show on TV. Will you tune in next week to see what Grylls makes these amazingly ambitious people do next?
If this tweet from contestant Kyle Krieger is anything to go by, it is actually possible for the challenges to get worse:
