Since Roger Federer built up the courage to adventure in the Swiss Alps with Bear Grylls, the famous survival instructor, in 2018, many stars have continued to appear in Discovery’s widely watched show “Running Wild with Bear Grylls”, even though Federer had to swallow a blood-filled fish eye during the unique experience.
Roger climbed through the snow of the Alps, played a high-altitude ping-pong match with Bear Grylls — which he won 11-9 — and went ice-fishing. To his surprise, his companion cut out one of the eyes of the fish caught by Roger and ate it.
Grylls asked Federer to do the same. Federer complied, even though he admitted it tasted awful. “So bad. I can’t believe I did it. I just needed a sip of water to just clear it out”. Roger Federer said after he swallowed the fish’s eye.
The Swiss maestro impressed even the rough-edged Grylls who admitted that Roger is one of his heroes. “This journey for me has been such a privilege. They often say ‘You must never meet your hero’, but in this case, he really lived up to the expectations”.
After Roger Federer’s appearance on the TV show, stars like Uzo Aduba, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Channing Tatum, Bobby Bones and more have gathered the courage to take on the challenge. The very next one on the upcoming list is Rajinikanth, one of the most popular actors in South India and the highest-grossing actor in Tamil cinema’s history.
