Ruth England, 'Man, Woman, Wild'Ruth England wasn't born and bred in the wild, which is half the charm of watching her on 'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery). While her husband, Mykel Hawke, is trained and completely in his element in the wild, England is experiencing new things with every trip.

This time around it was the notion of eating an armadillo killed in a wildfire.

"I've gotta gut a singed half-cooked armadillo with burst guts that may or may not have leprosy," she lamented as she went about trying to figure out how to get to the edible parts.

Facing a Black Bear on 'Man, Woman, Wild'So far, we've managed to avoid an actual wild animal attack on 'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery). But that doesn't mean that one could never happen. During the latest episode, Ruth and Mykel find themselves stranded in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. And then -- BEAR, BEAR, AAAH, BEAR!

Ahem. Yes, the husband-and-wife team encounter a bear. They have wandered a bit off-track while trying to get out of the mountains and suddenly, well, there's a big old black bear running across their path. But Mykel is prepared -- sort of. After all, he and his wife do have sharpened sticks. "Don't move!" he says to Ruth. "Honey, get your spear ready." Yes, a couple of sticks versus an enormous bear. That might just work.

'Man, Woman, Wild' - Ruth and Mykel Are Beaten by the Alaskan WildernessYou would think that winter would be the most dangerous time of year in Alaska. But on the latest 'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery), husband-and-wife team Mykel Hawke and Ruth England discover that the spring thaw season can be even worse. While exploring the remote bush country, the couple's snowmobile breaks down. Now, they must tough it out for four days, with only the clothes on their backs and a single knife as their survival tool.

The pair salvage what they can from their busted snowmobile. They cut off the vehicle's treads, and turn those into snowshoes. Spark plugs from the snowmobile are used to start a fire. They make a hut out of snow, and use their knife to cut the inner bark out of trees -- which they then use as food. (This is what the Native Americans used to eat sometimes as well.)

Facing Hypothermia While Crossing a Freezing River on 'Man, Woman, Wild'On the latest 'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery), survival expert Mykel Hawke and his journalist wife Ruth take a leisurely rafting trip in Utah. They're traveling down the Colorado River, which apparently flows through a lot more states than Colorado. (Utah being one of these states, obviously.) Everything is going fine. Or rather, everything is sort of going fine -- right up until the moment that their raft overturns.

'Man, Woman, Wild' - Ruth Is Forced To Drink Her Husband's PeeBeing together in the wilderness can be a bonding sort of experience. But sometimes, couples can get a little too close. Like, "drinking each others' urine" kind of too close. Which is pretty much what takes place on 'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery).

As always, husband and wife Mykel Hawke and Ruth England are stranded together in the middle of nowhere. But this time around, they're getting a little dehydrated. So Mykel comes up with a brilliant plan. He'll just have the two of them drink his pee. Yes! No! ... The whole thing seems sort of awful, but maybe it's also necessary.

Loves Fight While Trying to Survive in the Wilderness on 'Man, Woman, Wild'What's the worst fight that you ever got into as part of couple? And were you under a lot of stress at the time?

'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery) is a reality show featuring a husband-and-wife team. Mykel Hawke is a former Special Forces survival expert. Ruth England, his wife, is a television journalist. Together, they are dropped into the most inhospitable spots on the planet.

After that point, two of them must endure -- alone -- for four days. And they have with them only a single knife and the clothes that they're wearing. Kind of a pressure-y situation, no?

On the latest episode, the pair are stranded in Tasmania, of all places. Unfortunately, a fierce storm starts rolling in. The couple must improve their handmade shelter quickly, or they'll, um, "die" of hypothermia.

As the wind races and the thunder booms, Mykel and Ruth begin arguing about how best to outlast the storm. ... Did we mention that neither one of them has eaten for two days?

On 'Man, Woman, Wild,' a Couple Must Kill a PossumMykel Hawke is a survival expert. His wife Ruth England is a TV journalist. Together, on 'Man, Woman, Wild' (Fri., 9PM ET on Discovery), they travel into some of the most remote locations on Earth. There, they must survive with nothing more than a single knife and the clothes they are wearing.

On the most recent episode, the pair found themselves stranded in the Louisiana bayou. And in order to get some food, they had to kill a possum. Yikes. It didn't go super-smoothly, and Ruth got kind of upset.

Although possums are known for playing "dead" when threatened, this one decided to go in different direction -- and escaped up a tree. Ruth and Mykel eventually tracked it down, then stabbed it to death with a stick and a knife.
