RECAP: Tonight running in the wild with Bear is Channing Tatum, he’s starring in many upcoming films and asked to be taken out into the wild because he is a man who loves a challenge. Channing is sitting by a shed and misses the wild, he is given a book of knots to learn before Bear arrives, Channing sees the helicopter arriving and he finishes the knot just then. Channing takes of his shoes and sock then gets on the helicopter with Bear. The two now decide to jump out of the helicopter doing a back flip, the two hit the water and are now swimming to shore.
Channing believes that this is more exciting than any movie he has been on, he loves how nothing is rehearsed and just all real. Channing mentions that he was a stripper when he was younger, he was scared his first night doing such a thing; Channing is given some water and a hatchet. They are both now moving on into the forest, Channing mentions his dad loved snakes and wild life. Channing mentions he was in soccer as a kid, but wasn’t too good at it. Bear goes ahead cutting some pine from a tree for a fire later tonight. Bear finds a scorpion, it’s small and could easily kill someone; they both split the a scorpion and eat it.

Channing cuts off the snakes head and the two take it’s body and it still moves around on the ground. Bear makes Channing a necklace out of the snakes tail; he even got blood smeared on his face; Bear then peels the whole snake with Channing. Bear cuts it up into snake rings; the body is still moving without its guys, Channing mentions he’d never be moving after that. Channing says he once decided that he never thought he was the best, but loves working hard; he believes that ones you get to the top of something there is higher to go. He doesn’t want to just be good at the game, but wants to change the game; Bear loves how dedicated he is and is ready to move on to their next obstacle.
The two are now going to climb up this giant rock hill, Bear is nervous because this is dangerous. Channing is making his way very slowly, he can’t even believe he’s doing this; if he fell than he would died fast. The two are now at the top of the rocky hill. The two are now going ahead to eat their snake; the build a fire and then cut the snake up. They start cooking their snake on a hot rock, Channing mentions he was so bad at school; he was tested for learning disabilities. He believes he had A.D.D. and Dyslexia, he was always depressed for being the slowest in his class in his academics; he believes it helped him with his creativity.
The two are now starting to eat their snake, Channing says it’s similar to fish; washing it down with water.
The two are now going to try and find a place to sleep, Bear decides a nice ledge would be smart to sleep tonight; they are going to rappel down to the ledge. Channing can’t believe this is where they are sleeping, if they go over they are surely dead; they put their feet in the sleeping bad so that they can keep warm. Channing wakes up and is amazed at how Bear is sleeping right now, he feels like he can’t at all; Bear wakes up and Channing keeps filming him sleeping.
Channing mentions he had a meditation of terror because he could not sleep; the two are going to rappel down 600 feet.
Channing throws their rope down the side of the hill together, Channing takes a look and gets nervous; they find a ledge to rest on for a second. Bear feels like Channing actually likes this stuff, they are half way down. Bear decides to go down first and let Channing go down on his own after him.
Bear mentions the rope just reaches the bottom, Channing is now going down slowly; Channing gets down quite a bit and now has to run to the left of the cliff and go down. They are out of rope, so Bear carries a little extra just in case all the time; they are now going to forward rappel down the cliff because it is super fun and Channing will love it. Bear goes down first, picking up his pace as he reaches the bottom; Channing is now nervous but as he starts going down he loves it. Channing says it was so intense, they are now moving on to make a signal fire. They are now getting hooked up to the helicopter and will be hanging from it in the sky; Channing could not believe it.
