The just-released episode trailer showcases Bones and Parker testing their outdoor skills with Grylls while in the rugged wilderness of the eastern Sierra Nevada.
Bones admits he’s “freaking out” in the clip as Parker questions Grylls instructions.
“You’re saying that our body weight won’t pull that tree down,” Parker asks while Grylls assures her he’s confident the tree won’t give.

The couple confirmed their participation in the show in January when Grylls called into The Bobby Bones Show.
“Bear Grylls has reached out and asked Caitlin and I to do it together,” Bones shared at the time.
Bones previously appeared on the Nat Geo show in early 2020. At the time, he vowed to never put himself through that kind of experience again but quickly changed his mind when Grylls reached back out.
“Listen, after I went on the first trip, I thought, ‘well that was fun I will never do that again.’ [I] loved Bear, didn’t love the cliffs I had to go down and some of those crazy experiences,” Bones explained, “But Bear reached out and said, ‘would you guys do it together?’ Caitlin’s not a TV person, but she also is an athlete and loves adventure so we’ve accepted his challenge.”
“Caitlin is going to dominate me in the wild. I already feel it,” he quipped.
“This is taking it up a level, be ready,” Grylls warned. “Be ready.”
Bones’ episode of Running Wild was the highest-rated episode of last season. It is currently available to stream on Disney+.
Fans can tune in to watch Bones and Parker on the season finale of Running Wild with Bear Grylls on Monday, May 17 at 9/8c on Nat Geo.
