Escape To The Legion: For generations, the French Foreign Legion has been romanticized as a refuge for men seeking a second chance in life. But what is it really like? In Escape to the Legion, adventurer and explorer Bear Grylls sets off to find out with 11 other recruits who come from all walks of life. A disorderly band of men arrive at an ex-Legion fort in the Sahara Desert to attempt a month’s brutal training that promises to turn them in honorary members of the world’s toughest fighting force. Their journey will reveal as much about the men themselves as it does about the Foreign Legion. Find out where Bear Grylls got his inspiration from, hear from the recruits in their own words, and read what a psychologist has to say about their teamwork. If after all this you’re still tempted to seek out a new life with the Legion, you can read up on their background and make sure you are properly prepared.

I had a lot of respect for Bear before watching this, and now I have even more respect for him. I knew next to nothing about the French Foreign Legion before watching this, so it was quite informative.

This is a pretty cool series. Bear is in the army with the people, but you can tell he can clearly take it while he others are normal people having a super hard time.

I agree. Bear treated the whole thing as a glass that was 100% full.

awesome series, I feel Bear was the only one who fully gave it his everything - nonetheless this possibly slightly "watered-down" version looks pretty intense, the real thing would probably break the average man
