He’s appeared between two ferns with a comedian, he’s been interviewed by a woman known for swimming in a bathtub full of milk and Fruit Loops, but there is one area of pop culture President Barack Obama has yet to crack: reality TV. That is about to change.

As he hops on Air Force One to head up to Alaska to draw attention to his climate change agenda, the president will make a side trip to appear on the NBC reality show “Running Wild with Bear Grylls.”

Entertainment Weekly reports:

According to NBC: “Obama will meet with Grylls while visiting Alaska to observe the effects of climate change on the area. The two will then come together in the Alaskan Wilderness. President Obama will become the first U.S. president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Bear Grylls. The visit will be taped and aired on NBC later this year.”

The episode will focus on highlighting the alleged effects of climate change on the wilderness in Alaska.

Barack Obama will be the first U.S. president to appear on a reality TV show.
