Bear Grylls: Mission Survive, Episode 1


Bear Grylls presents the series in which eight celebrities face a 12-day survival mission through the rainforest of Costa Rica. To stay alive, they must learn to navigate the terrain, build shelters, make fire and supplement their meagre army rations with whatever they can forage. At the end of each episode, one of them faces elimination. At the end of the series, three finalists will remain, of whom just one will be acclaimed Mission Survivor. Actors and cousins Emilia Fox and Laurence Fox, singer and actor Max George, double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes, TV presenter and singer Jamelia, comedy actor Tom Rosenthal, DJ, model and presenter Vogue Williams and former England rugby international Mike Tindall make up the team. On the ground, Bear is assisted by expedition leaders - mountain guide Meg Hine and former commando Scott Heffield. In this edition, one of the team is transported from their lodgings in a helicopter to a rainforest clearing at the foot of Arenal Volcano.
