New Zealand Featured on NBC's 'Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls'

new zealandNew Zealand was once again center stage, this time as the star of NBC's new show, "Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls".

Set in the dramatic landscapes of New Zealand's South Island, world-renowned adventurer Bear Grylls put 10 teams to the ultimate test in his exhilarating new survival competition show. The episode featuring New Zealand aired Monday night, but if you missed it, video clips and more from the episode can be viewed at www.nbc.com/get-out-alive.

From the dense forests and sheer mountain drop-offs, to freezing cold rivers and glacier crevasses, the landscapes that were tackled in the episode are harsh, remote and physically and emotionally draining.

Contestants had to survive the wild of New Zealand, journey as a group and avoid elimination. This is not a race, but a life-changing adventure to reveal the raw survival spirit. The duo who makes it to the end in their quest to "get out alive" will claim a grand prize of $500,000.
