Season 1 — Episode 6

Trees and Insects

Imagine being so scared of trees, you can’t even look at a tree, or take your son to the park? Maricela, 23, from Arizona, has a phobia of trees that has blighted her entire life. She has no idea how it started, but she wants it to end right now — in the middle of the Mexican jungle, with Bear Grylls pushing her to confront the trees that she actually believes can hurt her. Mike, 25, from Poland, flinches every time he sees or hears an insect flying towards him. Together, they’re about to face their fears head on.
