He may not be in “Chains,” but some sturdy reinforcements can’t hurt when Nick Jonas faces nature head-on in the new season of Running Wild with Bear Grylls.

PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that Jonas, 23, will guest-star on the premiere this August when the star-studded outdoor adventure series returns with a spectacular, two-part season 3 opener.

The singer can be seen huddling in the snow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains as he and Grylls trek through icy cliffs and avalanche-prone mountains. And we’re only a little “Jealous” of Grylls for getting to behold a shirtless Jonas as they splash through freezing waters.

For night 2, Bear Grylls has enlisted Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough.

Hough, 27, opted for more of a warmer climate and is seen accompanying Grylls on an African Savanna as they adventure through cliffs and canyons, coming into contact with a few safari animals along the way.
