Marshawn Lynch went on Bear Grylls' 'Running Wild,' did NOT want to carve a pig

Shutdown Corner

Let’s just get Marshawn Lynch his own reality show. Heck, get him his own reality network at this point.

The retired (for now?) Seattle Seahawks running back has been on some adventures this year, and each is funnier than the last one. The latest is his appearance on “Running Wild” with Bear Grylls, an NBC show in which the British adventurer takes celebrities out in the wilderness and hilarity ensues. Lynch and Grylls spent two days in the French Corsican Mountains, at one point hunting down a pig for dinner — and starting a fire with one of Lynch’s dreadlocks.

“Bruh cut off one of my dreads to start a campfire,” Lynch said, according to the Seahawks’ website. “And was juiced about it, ‘Like oh my God, this is the best thing since sliced bread!'”

But the best part came when Grylls is trying to get Lynch to carve up the pig so they can cook it. And Lynch is not having it.

“Bear tells me like, ‘Yeah, so you’ve got that knife, bring it out, we’re fitting to chop up this pig,” Lynch said. “You’re talking about what?”

The whole two-minute video here is comedy:


More Marshawn, please. Any time. All the time. In any situation. It’s gold.
