When even Free Solo‘s daredevil climber Alex Honnold doesn’t want to do something, you know it’s scary. But that’s part of Bear Grylls’ mountain-man magic—getting celebrities to do things they don’t really want to do.

For Honnold, it’s jumping out of a plane (editor’s note: we’re with you, Alex!). For Brie Larson, it’s jumping blind into a mountain river (also with you, Brie!)

Running Wild with Bear Grylls joins National Geographic for season five, and besides Honnold and Larson, Grylls also brings along Dave Bautista, Bobby Bones, Cara Delevingne, Joel McHale, Rob Riggle, Channing Tatum, Zachary Quinto and Joel McHale along to have the adventure of their lives.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls premieres on Nat Geo on Tuesday, Nov 5, at 10/9c.
