Netflix Releases Trailer For Interactive Bear Grylls Show

Netflix Releases Trailer For Interactive Bear Grylls Show

Can the general public be trusted when it comes to making decisions? Before you rush to a decision, let's not forget how many people voted for a polar research vessel to be named Boaty McBoatface. So can they be trusted with the safety of Bear Grylls? Guess we'll find out thanks to his new interactive TV show... watch the trailer below:

Coming to Netflix in April, You vs Wild will see the British adventurer put his fate into the hands of the viewers. Dangerous move in itself, but with choices on offer such as 'fall to your potential death' and 'fight a mountain lion', I think it's safe to say that many of us are set to see Grylls enduring eight episodes of bad decisions.

Bear Grylls rose to fame through his TV shows, in which he braves all manner of horrific environments and shows us how to survive - mainly by doing gross stuff, like drinking your own piss and hollowing out the carcasses of dead animals and sleeping in them.

The difference with the new show is that the outcome will be left to the audience to decide.

The trailer shows Grylls in a variety of sticky situations, dangling off icy caverns, coming face to face with what appears to be a very pissed off wolf and tiptoeing through caves with a flaming torch in his hand. At one point he holds up a minging looking bug and asks if he should 'eat it or leave it'... Wonder how that one's going to end?

We also see a huge explosion in the trailer, which we can only assume he survives, given that he put out a tweet declaring his excitement about the new series.

He said: "YOUR choices are now the key to my survival. YOU are in charge. Please choose wisely."

You vs Wild has followed in the footsteps of Bandersnatch - Charlie Brooker's interactive show in which viewers were left to decide the narrative, with ten possible endings and a reported 'trillions' of story combinations, depending on fans' choices during the show. Not sure how many combinations are available in this new show, but I imagine we'll find out soon enough.

Obviously, all the outcomes are already recorded, so if you have the time and inclination, and are a bit weird, you could even watch Bear fight mountain lions and fall to his death.

You vs Wild is out on 10 April on Netflix.
