Zac Efron ‘Runs Wild’ with Bear Grylls, Repels Down a Cliff: Watch


Zac Efron is a man of few fears.

The Neighbors actor is the first contestant on NBC’s Running Wild with Bear Grylls, a new reality show that takes celebrities to remote locations for two days of extreme thrills.

For Zac’s episode, Bear takes the 26-year-old actor into the Catskill Mountains of New York where he’s forced to repel down cliffs (shirtless, of course), jump out of helicopters, and a variety of other terrifying stunts.

The famous survivalist will also put Channing Tatum, NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, and Ben Stiller’s fears to the test later this season.

“We reached out to him and he kindly said he was a fan of the show and that he was in 120 percent,” Grylls told People about Zac. “He asked for the biggest, baddest adventure and it was an honor to oblige.”

NBC has released three nerve-wrecking teasers for the High School Musical star’s episode., and Zac has uploaded his own glimpses on his Instagram page.

Watch Zac’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls premiering on July 28 on NBC.
