Zac Efron Wants to Do ‘Man vs. Wild’

Celebuzz / August 14, 2010

Zac Efron isn’t afraid to mess up that pretty face of his in order to prove he can go one-on-one with nature.

Bear Grylls, the survivalist host of Man vs. Wild, tells PopEater that the former High School Musical heartthrob has contacted him about appearing on an upcoming episode of the show:

“Zac Efron wrote the other day that he’d love to do an episode together, so I’m quite keen to explore that one. We’ve literally just finished filming season five, so I’m kind of focusing on going home now, having a quick rest, and we’ll start filming the next stuff in September. We’ve got lots of people [who are interested], it’s just whether it’s right for Discovery to do it or not.”

Efron wouldn’t be the first Hollywood hotshot to rough it with Grylls on his show; last year Anchorman funny guy Will Ferrell set out into the wilderness with the host and tested his mettle by, among other things, eating a deer’s eyeball. Check out Ferrell’s Man vs. Wild appearance below:

Our advice to Efron: Pack a lunch.
