Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls

At the end of our summer Bear Grylls was out shooting his new series Get Out Alive and I was fortunate to help film the episodes. 10 couples from the USA battled it out in the wild overcoming obstacles, challenges and weather with Bear observing and eliminating couples on the way. With $500,000 up for grabs the contestants were keen to show they were worthy.

Filmed over 5 weeks in the beautiful Matukituki Valley, just out of Wanaka, it was a great insight into the makings of a reality series and equally interesting seeing first hand what people are willing to do to win. The scenery was incredible as the contestants tackled all range of terrain from mountain passes, glaciers to rivers and lakes with Bear throwing in some culinary delights to shift the focus along the way.

Its currently airing in the USA so I can’t give anything away, apart from it was a huge amount of fun and the contestants worked hard through some quite treacherous conditions to eventually decide the winning couple. The final episode will be an incredible show.
