After weeks of nail-biting survival drama, NBC's freshman reality competition "Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls" aired its season finale on Aug. 26. Missed the episode? Here are the most GIF-tastic moments from its conclusion.
The three remaining teams (Lucky and Louie, Chris and Jeff, Austin and Jim) had to jump out of a helicopter, make their way to a campsite, start a fire with faulty fire steels, and build a shelter.Would you have had the courage to follow Bear's lead?
If that wasn't scary enough, the teams then had to float down a raging, rain-swollen river. They had nothing but their packs to help them stay afloat!
As their "reward" for making it to overnight camp, Bear presented the teams with a special dinner item: a deer heart! Yum?
The teams then had to build a raft. While the other two teams did fairly well, Jim and Austin struggled when their raft got caught in some driftwood. Chris and Jeff's raft worked, but it sat very low in the water.
Famous last words: "I think... it will float." #GetOutAlive— Get Out Alive (@NBCGetOutAlive) August 27, 2013
After a visit to the feast pit for all the teams, it was time for Bear to decide who would take home the $500,000 prize. After much deliberation, Bear threw the bag of money to Lucky and Louie. (Good thing it didn't fall in the fire.)
But the decision wasn't without its detractors. Some fans thought Chris and Jeff deserved to win.
I definitely do not think that lucky and Louie should have won... Don't deserve it more than anyone else. @NBCGetOutAlive— Erica Franklin (@1EFRANK) August 27, 2013
