As host and star of Discovery Channel's "Man Vs. Wild," the grizzled Bear Grylls drank his own urine in the desert and battled deadly snakes in the jungle—anything to survive. His fearlessness is the center of Discovery's upcoming new series "Escape From Hell," in which Bear will recreate real situations where ordinary people were trapped in extraordinary life-or-death circumstances.

He'll be heading into mountains, canyons and swamps on the new show—all places infested with danger. But a photo Bear posted this morning indicates he'll also be tackling the urban jungle. Tall buildings, no matter how high, are no match for the sheer will of Bear Grylls. "Escape From Hell" debuts October 7.
