Netflix Will Soon Let You Control Where Bear Grylls Goes Adventuring And When He Drinks His Own Urine

They know what we really want when it comes to Bear Grylls content.

Netflix broke new ground when it comes to interactive movie experiences in January when it released Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

And now the streaming giant has revealed its next big interactive project with the release of a new trailer for a new adventure program titled You Vs. Wild, which stars Man Vs. Wild host and renowned bug and bodily fluid devourer Bear Grylls.

In what may be the first ever Choose-Your-Own-Documentary-Series, You Vs. Wild allows viewers to direct Gyrlls where ever they want him to go as he explores the wilderness, whether it’s head-first into an icy lake or right into a pack of hungry wolves.

As a neat little teaser, the YouTube trailer itself is also playable so check it out here:

This will be the first dollop of interactive content from Netflix since Bandersnatch and it will be very interesting to see how it unfolds as You Vs. Wild is an unscripted documentary series compared to the former’s meticulously scripted format.

But let’s be truly honest here, we’re all going to check this out just to see if there’s an option to make Grylls drink his own pee.

With all the number-crunching Netflix does to work out what we want, surely they would’ve concluded that giving viewers the power to make Grylls sip on a drink bottle filled with his own wee is a surefire way to boost its subscriber base.

Soon you can make him do this over and over and over again. Maybe.

With eight episodes of You Vs. Wild to binge, the chances of making Grylls neck a drink bottle of Satan’s lemonade is quite high and we won’t have long to wait before Grylls is at the mercy of Netflix’s viewers as You Vs. Wild will drop on April 10.

Should sculling down human goon not be an option – which will be a massive disappointment – I’ll settle for making Grylls eat random creepy crawlies or take on a pack of wild boars because, again let’s be honest here, we just want to put him through hell because it’ll be entertaining.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
