Bear Grylls has made another spectacular entrance on Sydney Harbour, this time jumping from a speedboat.
Earlier this year, when the adventurer was in town to promote his television show Man vs Wild, he jumped from a helicopter at The Rocks
Grylls, who is in Sydney ahead of a national stage tour, jumped from a speeding boat to a ramp at McMahons Point.
Grylls said he enjoys being back in Australia, whether it’s for work or to visit friends.
‘I love coming to Australia,’ he said.
‘It’s great to film in. We’ve filmed three episodes of Man vs Wild here now. There’s some of the great wildernesses in the world here. For me it’s a total privilege to work here but also it’s fun to come and hang out here as well.’
While Grylls may be used to taking on the wilderness, on Wednesday he will take on 10 Australian competition winners in challenges of their choosing.
The challenges include a lemon eating contest, table tennis, hand stand walking, frisbee throwing and paint ball.
‘I’m quite nervous because these guys have all had their challenges and they’ve all been practicing and I haven’t, so I think I’m going to get my backside whipped,’ he says.
Bear will be live on stage:

Man vs Wild airs on Discovery and SBS
