Grylls’ Facebook Series

Bear Grylls: Face The Wild, a 10-episode series with the survival expert taking “real people” on adventures, premieres tomorrow, March 21, on Facebook Watch.

Each week’s participants were selected by Grylls’ Facebook followers. Based on the promo video above, they include an amputee, a 13-year-old, a senior citizen and others whom Grylls’ “pushes…out of their comfort zones and teaches…how the wild can be not only eye-opening, but also ultimately empowering.”

Grylls has previously been involved with a host of TV series, including NBC’s Running Wild with Bear Grylls and Discovery’s long-running Man vs. Wild. While he may not have thrust lucky fans into the limelight before, he’s taken many celebrities along with him, such as Courteney Cox, Julia Roberts and even then-President Barack Obama:
