On tonight’s episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls the host teams up with dancer Julianne Hough to explore South Africa where the two will face unpredictable terrain and dangerous wildlife.

The two start their journey by setting off on a quad bike into the bush, giving them a close-up view of elephants, giraffes, and other wild animals. The two approach a pair of elephants on foot and Bear grabs a large pile of elephant dung to demonstrate how the fluid inside can keep you hydrated in an emergency scenario. He has Julianne squeeze the fluid out of the dung into a canteen for later and then the two climb back onto the quad bike and head for more mountainous terrain.

Bear guides Julianne to the top of a mountain that is the last barrier before a massive canyon on the other side that the two will need to cross. Borrowing a can of deodorant from Julianne, he uses it as an anchor for the two to rappel down the mountainside. Now in the canyon, the two mountaineers take a break and discuss Julianne’s childhood and her beginnings as a dancer.

As the duo again set off again, they spot a pair of cheetahs and are forced to crawl across the ground, hiding from the predatory cats. Once safe from the cheetahs, the duck inside a rock enclosure their way is barred by a giant snake. After sneaking past it, Bear goes back and captures the snake in order to kill it for dinner, but Julianne refuses to eat it. Bear negotiates with her that if she touches the snake, he will let it go but she has to agree to eat whatever they find next. Julianne agrees and Bear releases the snake. As the sun starts going down, Bear begins searching for shelter for the night. He finds a small cave near a water source and the two then turn their attention to starting a fire.

Julianne works on the fire while Bear searches for a dinner to replace the snake that he was forced to let go. He finds some policemen caterpillars and cooks them in the elephant dung that they collected earlier. As their dinner cooks, Julianne discusses the time she spent in London as a child working on her dancing and her parent’s divorce. The two dig into their concoction, with Julianne gagging as she forces it down.

Snuggled into their cave for the night, Julianne repeatedly wakes up afraid she hears approaching leopards. Having survived the night, Bears and Julianne continue their journey. As the two are crossing a waterfall, their way is blocked by a large boulder that forces them to squeeze through the impossibly tight space. Continuing on through the gorge, the two pause to appreciate some cave drawings and discuss Julianne’s plans to have children with her fiancée. Leaving the drawings, Bear and Julianne keep going through the gorge towards the end of their journey.

To reach their extraction point, the two must climb up a one hundred feet rope stair against a vertical cliff face to reach the top of the canyon. Having successfully climbed the ladder, the mountaineers reach their extraction point where a helicopter hovers. The two strap themselves to the end of a rope trailing from the helicopter and are carried away through the mountains.
