Well this is an unlikely duo if you've ever heard one.

The Leader of the Free World has decided to test out his survivor capabilities by joining Bear Grylls on his series Running Wild With Bear Grylls for NBC.

Bizarre, ey?

President Barack Obama will join Grylls as the pair take on the Alaska landscape together in attempt to highlight the affects of climate change on the wilderness there.

Running Wild has previously had the likes of Ben Stiller, Kate Winslet and Zac Efron on it, but undoubtedly getting the US president himself is quite the coup for the adventurer.

Now all he has to do is keep him alive...no pressure Bear.

No word yet on the transmission date but it's expected to be in the upcoming series of the show on NBC.
