President Obama Will Test His Survival Skills on a Reality TV Show

Running Wild with NBC's Bear Grylls

It won't be just White House press corps cameras covering President Barack Obama during his trip to Alaska this week. NBC announced the commander in chief will trek through the Alaskan wilderness with survival expert Bear Grylls for a special edition of his show Running Wild.

Obama will meet with Grylls while visiting Alaska to observe the effects of climate change. The president will then get a crash course in survival techniques from Grylls. The visit will be taped and aired on NBC later this year.
