On the next episode of Bear Grylls: Escape From Hell, Bear gets dangerously close to his 700-pound predator namesake. ETonline has your exclusive sneak peek.
In the six-part series, the former Man vs. Wild host puts himself into a variety of dire situations based on the real extraordinary stories of those who survived similar ominous scenarios.
On the coming episode, Bear gets up close and personal with his namesake.
To recreate the fear and terror felt by a 16-year-old hiker who had a terrifyingly close encounter with a black bear when he was lost on a mountainside, Bear intentionally gets too close for comfort with an even bigger brown bear.
"It's always a little unnerving coming face-to-face with my namesake," Grylls narrates the segment.
Watch the exclusive clip above to see Bear's encounter with the bear as well as his advice for anyone who comes across a bear in the wild.
Check out the full episode of Bear Grylls: Escape From Hell Wednesday at 10 p.m. on Discovery.
