‘This Is Us’ Star’s Raccoon Dinner on ‘Running Wild With Bear Grylls’

On Running Wild With Bear Grylls, award-winning actor Sterling K. Brown of This Is Us fame reached new heights by hopping onto helicopters and rappelling off mountains for the first time in his life.

Sterling and Bear tried tracking a deer, but although that proved unsuccessful, they were able to visit the wilderness’s frozen-food section and found a raccoon ice cold and dead in the snow.

After digging up the frozen-solid beast, they lugged it along on their journey. Upon pitching a makeshift tree tent, they got to the business of raccoon cleaning, cooking, and eating. Sterling seemed a bit nervous that Bear was going to eat Rocky raw, but luckily, Bear likes his raccoon grilled, so Sterling gave it a shot. Sterling said, “It’s got a flavor. Raccoon tasted not like chicken, ’cause chicken is delicious.”

Bear turned out to be quite the coonskin milliner, and gave his new buddy a stylish hat that Sterling wore with Davy Crockett-style pride: “I feel kind of badass, maybe a little silly, but kind of badass at the same time too, so, I’m’a rock it as long as I can.”

Running Wild With Bear Grylls airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC. Watch full episodes and highlights on Yahoo View, available on iOS and Android.
