Zac Efron tries to survive in Catskills with Bear Grylls in 'Running Wild'

By Daniel S Levine,

Every summer sees its variety of one-and-done reality shows. Tonight, another new one launches, with television survivalist Bear Grylls’ taking a celebrity in the wild on NBC’s Running Wild. The first episode features Efron.

The Neighbors star and Grylls take on the wilderness of New York’s Catskills. As Newsday points out, the hour-long show features Grylls teaching Efron that worms and bird eggs are OK to eat, while Efron teaches Grylls that it’s hard to be a celebrity.

There’s also plenty of shots of a shirtless Efron for the female viewers in the audience to ogle at. Plus, the Man vs. Wild star and Efron get along well, at least in the scenes shown on TV.

Running Wild was announced last night. Other celebrities who will appear in the series are Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum, Tom Arnold, Deion Sanders and Today’s Tamron Hall.

Also on tonight is The Bachelorette on ABC and Fox’s Masterchef. Running Wild begins at 8 p.m. on NBC.
