Bear Grylls and Scott Eastwood’s Episode
Eastwood joined Grylls on a journey through the harsh Bulgarian outback. And they get into some pretty harry situations. The two men even come face-to-face with a snake—and later make it their meal! In the episode, Eastwood also talks about his childhood with his father, Clint Eastwood.
He explains that his father grew up during The Great Depression, that’s why he always valued hard work and holding down a job. Eastwood explains that his father is “old-school” and always instilled those values in him. By the age of 15, Eastwood was already working; he got a job at a local smoothie shop.
He also talks about his love of the outdoors and his journey in the Hollywood industry.
In the episode, the duo rappel from a towering arch and further descend into the dark caves of Bulgaria. But the trip down doesn’t look like an easy one, and even Grylls himself looks a little uneasy.
He uses their backpacks as weights so that the two can rappel down the mountain-face, telling Eastwood that one a scale of 1-10, it’s about a 2 or 3 for danger. Eastwood winces and says, “Well, it’s a good day to die” as he makes his descend. (Later, Grylls looks at the camera and explains it was actually more of a 9 on the scale!)
Despite being scared and nervous, the two manage to reach the ground.
Aside from their death-defying scale down the mountain, their journeys through cavernous caves, and eating a snake, Eastwood and Grylls cross a Bulgarian river, where Grylls jokes about his wife’s one piece of advice for this episode; “Whatever you do, don’t take your shirt off next to Scott Eastwood.”
