Season 1 — Episode 3

Rats and Spiders

Bear Grylls gets down and dirty with two guys who are terrified of rats and spiders. Back home, British carpenter Joe, 31, keeps his fear of creepy crawlies a complete secret to avoid being ridiculed by his work mates, who come across spiders every day. Neo, 29, grew up in the township of Soweto, Johannesburg, where he developed an irrational fear of rats that’s stayed with him into adulthood. Now, Joe and Neo are going to come face to face with their worst nightmares, as Bear pushes them deep in to the Mexican jungle, with its super-sized rodents and spiders.
