I will never understand “glamping,” let alone the less glamorous version known as “camping,” and I certainly won’t understand adventuring in the great outdoors. I was shocked, then, when Zac Efron, who looks more suited for glamorous European vacations, decided to appear in the season premiere of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, a show I don’t watch with about surviving in the wilderness for 48-hours, hosted by some guy I don’t know who is actually attractive in a woodsy way.
When I found out Z would be getting rugged-for-ratings, I tuned in on the off chance that this might include some shirtless moments (it did). Being in the woods also prompted some major male bonding, during which Zac opened up about what caused his need for rehab last year.
“Everywhere you go, to a certain extent, there is press in some form,” the Zac told Bear (actual name) at a campfire. “You spend a lot of time in your house, going crazy and pretty soon you need a social lubricant. And once I needed that, it became to go anywhere.” Realizing he had hit a low point in his life where he was working for the weekend, Zac headed for help. “I just really want to never again have to take anything from the outside into me to feel good about my outside,” he said.
Well if that doesn’t sound like a self-actualized post-rehab statement, I don’t know what does. I’m glad that he has cleaned up his act, though, dolls. I prefer my men’s baggage to be designer only.
When he wasn’t dishing rehab-related dirt, he did, as I mention, get shirtless. Obvi take a look:
Sigh. Michelle Rodriguez had better appreciate what she’s got.
Tell me this, dolls: would you brave the elements if it meant sharing a tent with Zac Efron?
