A new competition series premiering in December features a cast of grizzly bears who will compete against humans on the show in tests of strength, speed and stamina.
The show is Discovery Channel’s “Man vs. Bear,” which premieres Wednesday, Dec. 4. The show will star the grizzlies Bart, Honey Bump and Tank, who will host their human competitors at their Utah sanctuary.
“For thousands of years, grizzly bears have stood at the top of the evolutionary food chain with unchallenged dominance,” Discovery says in its announcement. “Now for the first time ever, humans will be entering the bears’ territory and take them on in a competition like never attempted.”
“Competing against bears is both scary and exciting,” said Ira, an MMA fighter and competitor from Dallas. “It’s competing against the unknown. This is a completely new challenge for me.”
