Nick Jonas might be getting a little too “Close” for comfort with his dinner ….

In an exclusive sneak peek at Monday’s season premiere of Running Wild with Bear Grylls, the 23-year-old singer has to overcome severe obstacles just to have a meal with Grylls, 42, during a challenging night in the wild.

Most notably, due to the freezing temperatures and wind chill, Jonas is forced to defrost his food by putting it down his pants for warmth.

“It’s all happening very fast,” the singer says while bundled up in survival gear.

Jonas will show off his athletic side while trekking through the snow-covered hills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, avoiding avalanches and wading through frigid waters.

Jonas’ guest appearance on the hit television series kicks off the two-night season premiere, with Dancing with the Stars judge Julianne Hough following the singer’s winter wonderland experience with a heat-filled adventure through the African Savanna. Hough, 27, will be faced with steep hills and deep canyons in the Savanna’s wild while also meeting a few furry friends along the way.

Other celebrities who’ll be Running Wild this season include Courteney Cox, Vanessa Hudgens, Shaquille O’Neal, Lindsay Vonn and Marshawn Lynch.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls‘ special two-night premiere event airs Aug. 1 and 2 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
