Watch President Obama Feast on Salmon in ‘Running Wild With Bear Grylls’ Clip

President Obama is heading into the wilderness in his upcoming appearance on “Running Wild With Bear Grylls,” and in a new clip for the episode, it seems he can stomach anything (except for peas in guacamole).

The sneak peek shows the president declaring his nervousness about eating with the survival expert as they venture into Alaskan wilderness. “I’ve seen some of the stuff Bear eats, and it’s gotta be something that doesn’t still have its legs and eyes on it. I want it not to be too recognizable,” Obama said.

And what Grylls pulls out of his backpack is luckily familiar. It just happens to be fresh Alaskan salmon that was partially eaten by a bear. Being the foodie that he is, the president rated the meal as “tasty.” The chef, on the other hand, was unimpressive.

“Bear’s a mediocre cook, but the fact that we ate something recognizable was encouraging,” he said. “Now, the fact that he told me this was a leftover fish from a bear, I don’t know if that was necessary. He could have just left that out.”

Watch the clip below. This episode of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” airs later this year on NBC.
