Casting call: Join Bear Grylls’ ultimate adventure competition
Want to enter the Heart of Darkness?
DALLAS If punching a wolf has topped your bucket list since Liam Neeson went there in The Grey, December 9 is your lucky day. NBC will hold an open casting call for a new adventure competition series starring the gritty and somewhat insane “king of survival experts,” Bear Grylls.
The network is looking for “confident and competitive duos” who are at least 21 years old by February 1, 2013. You’ll need to be legal U.S. residents with valid U.S. passports and have the will to bear it all in a remote wilderness location.
The team with the right combination of grit, determination, and leadership will make it to the end and win the “reward of a lifetime.”
Which is ... ? Reps are mum, but at that point, you’ll probably be thrilled with a Big Mac and clean underwear. So, grab your spouse, sibling, best friend, or worst enemy (hey, they say to keep them close, right?) and show off your mettle at Gilley’s from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on December 9. Apply online at nbcbearshow.com and find out more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
