    Feeling adventurous? A new reality show is looking for outgoing people, and there's a casting call in Chicago.

    "We're going throughout the country looking for teams of two people; people who are up for the challenge, people who are outgoing, whether you're family members, whether you're co-workers, whether you're buddies. We're looking for people who already have a connection and people who are willing to give it their all for what is definitely going to be the ultimate reality survival competition," said Bear Grylls of his upcoming adventure show to air on NBC.

    To be eligible, contestants must be a legal U.S resident who is at least 21 years old as of Feb. 1, 2013. They also must have a United States passport that's valid as of Feb. 1, 2013 through Oct. 15, 2013.

    Chicago's casting will be Sat., Dec. 1 at the XSport Fitness, at 819 S. State St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show relies on pairs, and it's important that both people attend the casting call for the team to be considered.

    Anyone who can't make the Chicago call could also attend sessions in Portland, Ore; Detroit, Atlanta, Dallas, Fayetteville, Ar; Los Angeles, New York City or Phoenix.
