MAN VS. WILD 6

This coming Monday, July 11, MAN VS WILD‘s Bear Grylls returns to our screen and is bringing along a companion, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, on a new excursion for the Season 7 premiere.

Man vs Wild will test how Gyllenhaal measures up to unpredictable and unforgiving Mother Nature. For two days, Bear and Jake embark on a survival experience neither will forget, to an Icelandic landscape dominated by mountains, huge glaciers and some of Europe’s most active volcanoes. Jake will have to go where Bear goes, eat whatever Bear eats, and on occasion even take the lead, if he’s going to cope with some of the worst conditions known to man. “For me, it’s all about discovery,” said Gyllenhaal.

Said Bear about the experience, “The wild is always very revealing -– not only physically but mentally. You’ve got to smile when it’s driving horizontal hail and be able to face your fears and just get on and do it — and on both of those accounts, Jake came up strong.”

This new episode of Man vs Wild airs on Monday, July 11 from 9-10PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Additional new episodes will air on Mondays at 9pm with Bear’s adventures taking him to other remote parts of Iceland in blizzard conditions, New Zealand’s South and North Islands, and the Utah badlands.

You can see some photos, a preview and a couple of sneak peeks of Jake Gyllenhaal in the season 7 premiere episode of Man vs Wild.
