I have not written about Bear Grylls lately, so I decided to catch up, with three interesting items at once.
Man vs Wild Video Game
Discovery Channel has selected Crave Entertainment to turn Man vs. Wild into a video game. There should be versions for PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and Xbox 360 available by the end of 2011.
Bear Grylls Promotes Alpha Course
Bear Grylls visited Tomoka Correctional Institution in Daytona Beach, which houses 1263 male inmates on October 22, 2009. Grylls introduced inmates to Alpha Course a free ten week course about Christianity, developed at Holy Trinity Brompton Church, an Anglican church in London.
Grylls also made two appearances at 2009 National Alpha Conference to promote this course.
It is nice to see Grylls endorsing a non-commercial product he believes in.
Grylls Has Third Best Job in World
A poll by Shell and Auto Express concluded that Jeremy Clarkson, who drives fast cars on UK TV Show Top Gear, has the best job in the world. Nigella Lawson, known as Queen of Food Porn was second, and Bear Grylls finished third.
I was surprised that Queen Elizabeth finished sixth, because I think that she has the best job.
