President Barack Obama is stepping out of the White House, and running into the wild!

NBC announced on Monday that the POTUS will trek though the Alaskan wilderness on a special edition of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, set to air later this year.

According to NBC's press release, President Obama will meet with Bear Grylls while visiting Alaska to observe the effects of climate change on the area.

This will make President Obama the first U.S. president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Grylls.

We don’t know about you, but we're eagerly awaiting this episode because Grylls is known for having his guests do some outrageous (and disgusting!) things. Remember when Michelle Rodriguez ate a mouse boiled in her own urine? Blegh!

We think Mr. Obama probably won't do such a revolting stunt out of presidential decorum, but hey, maybe he'll recreate one of his favorite movie scenes with Grylls like Kate Winslet did!
