On the show he was forced to confront deadly scorpions and leap from a helicopter.
Five minutes into the show he was in tears. OK TEN if you’re being picky!
The “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” co-star joined contestants for three weeks, as they camped in an Australian rainforest.
The 2013 series of the endurance contest launched on Sunday, and as we so eloquently pointed out, Ribeiro’s nerves began to show within minutes.
He was seen trembling with fear and saying he was “really, really nervous” as he prepared for the contestants’ traditional skydive into the jungle and admitted after landing safely that it had been “quite possibly the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” adding, “I didn’t like that.”
However, his first day in the camp went from bad to worse when he took part in a trial to win food for his teammates and had to solve a puzzle while 75 scorpions crawled over his head, face and body.
After winning the task, Ribeiro was seen wiping tears from his eyes and fighting to control his emotions as he said, “That was, er… tougher than I thought.”
