By now, we’re all well-aware that Zac Efron has a penchant for taking his shirt off—he’s gone shirtless in a Nicholas Sparks romance, in a Seth Rogen comedy, even in Disney Channel Original Movies. But now he’s taking it off for… a show with Bear Grylls?

Famous survivalist Bear Grylls lured in some famous friends, including Ben Stiller and Channing Tatum, to go on remote adventures with him for new NBC reality show Running Wild. For Zac Efron’s episode, the two ventured into the Catskill Mountains of New York to repel down cliffs and jump out of helicopters—shirtless, of course.

Bear Grylls returns to Discovery

Bear Grylls, who parted ways with Discovery last March over a contract dispute, has made up with the channel — at least internationally. Discovery Networks International has announced a new six-episode series Bear Grylls: Ultimate Survivors that will air in 217 markets outside North America. The show will use archival footage and interviews with people who’ve survived being stranded in the Amazon, in the European Alps, and in the North African desert, and place the former Man Vs. Wild host in the same terrain to re-live their journeys.

“I am super excited to be working with Discovery again — the channel where the Man Vs. Wild journey began,” said Grylls, in a statement.  “Ultimate Survivors, and any future endeavors, will be intense — but that’s where the fun is! Man Vs. Wild took me to some of the toughest climates and terrains out there, and this new series is an exciting evolution of that. The aim is to follow incredible real-life survival stories and demonstrate dynamic life-saving know-how along the way.”
