Bear Grylls has climbed Mount Everest, holds a Guiness world record for longest free fall and in “Man vs. Wild” has gone to survival lengths up to and including drinking his own urine for sustenance.

Dos Equis has taken Bear, 35, out of the wild for a bit and brought him on as a professor at their Dos Equis Most Interesting Academy, a unique ‘school’ that deems itself ‘the world’s premiere institution for the education and dissemination on the study of being interesting.’ Sounds like a place anyone can benefit from a class.
