President Obama’s in a pretty nice place right now — it’s the second half of his second term, so he can finally have some fun. He already hit up WTF with Marc Maron earlier this year, and now, as NBC announced this morning, he’ll be appearing on Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
For those not familiar with the survival expert’s newest show, it combines the elements of Man vs Wild with celebrities. Kate Winslet, Channing Tatum, Michael B. Jordan, and Michelle Rodriguez (the latter of which, you may remember, ate a mouse soaked in urine) have all done stints in the wild with Grylls.
Later this year, the president will meet with Grylls in Alaska, observe the effects of climate change in the region, and then take a crash course in surviving the great outdoors. He’ll be the first president to ever do so.
Good luck, POTUS.
