Bear Grylls Bear Grylls

Forget Survivor. Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls will be the true test of mental and physical endurance on TV.

NBC's new adventure-reality competition series featuring former Man vs. Wild host Bear Grylls kicks off in July and will pit 10 teams of two against each other to see who has the best survival skills. Expect grueling conditions. Expect danger. Expect tears. Don't expect mercy.

Jumping from a helicopter is just the beginning of this epic journey that will also reveal each person's mettle in the face of adversity. "I think we're all a little bit like grapes," Grylls says. "When you squeeze us, you'll see what we're made of." At stake is $500,000 and one's feeling of self-worth after battling Mother Nature. Check out this sneak peek of Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls, which premieres Monday, July 8 at 9/8c on NBC:
