Are You Tougher Than A Boy Scout?













WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boy Scouts live and breathe their motto: Prepared. For Life. ® They are strong, resourceful and self-reliant. Honest, helpful and brave. They are downright tough. Would you be able to reach into a bag of snakes, shimmy across a rope stretched over river rapids, canoe across a lake without a paddle and rescue an injured hiker?

From Emmy award–winning Original Productions ( Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers) comes National Geographic Channel's new series Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout? Premiering Monday, March 4, at 8 PM ET/PT, and hosted by ex-Army Ranger Charles Ingram , adult "civilians" battle it out with scrappy Scouts in a series of challenges — all based on the Boy Scouts' 100-year-old handbook — designed to test their physical and mental stamina to determine if these adults have what it takes to earn their own "merit badge." For more information, visit www.natgeotv.com/boyscouts and follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/NGC_PR.

Each week, an elite team of Scouts from across the country, ranging from Webelos Scouts to Eagle Scouts, gathers in the Sequoia National Forest to take on three new (and brave) adults in a battle of brains and brawn. From a software engineer with no Scouting experience, to a real estate agent who was kicked out of the Scouts at age 7, to an entrepreneur with two sons — these adults are from all walks of life, with all levels of experience. Along the way, they'll be taught some tough lessons and sometimes pushed beyond their mental and physical limits. But, in the end, these men will know the answer to the question, Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout?

Before the adults can go up against the Scouts on their own, they must prove their worth through a series of grueling, merit badge–based challenges. Whether crossing a gorge on a commando line, finding their way alone in the woods during an orienting challenge, administering first aid to an injured hiker or feeding breakfast to a group of hungry Cub Scouts, each challenge reinforces valuable Scouting skills. But for these adults, the rigorous competition can be a hard-hitting reality check. Tough days and even tougher nights mean that they must constantly be ready for the unexpected. And the grown-ups are left to question: how much do they really know about surviving in the wilderness? How far can their life experience really get them?
