[ male announcer ] ask your doctor about pristiq®,
a prescription medicine proven to treat depression. pristiq is thought to work by affecting the levels of two chemicals in the brain, serotonin and norepinephrine. tell your doctor right away if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase suicidal thoughts and behaviors in children, teens and young adults. pristiq is not approved for children under 18. do not take pristiq with maois. taking pristiq with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners may increase bleeding risk. tell your doctor about all your medications, including those for migraine, to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. pristiq may cause or worsen high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or glaucoma. tell your doctor if you have heart disease or before you reduce or stop taking pristiq. side effects may include nausea, dizziness and sweating. for me, pristiq is a key in helping to treat my depression. ask your doctor about pristiq.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] jimmy: for years our next guest has been risking his life as a survival expert and filmmaker with hit shows like "survivorman" and "beyond survival." take a look. a visiting shaman wants a turn at tattooing me. he's still in training, but his hit is much harder than taroch's when it comes to making sure the nail is breaking through my skin. unfortunately, for me, he's not paying attention to how much ink paste he's using.

done, just -- they sucked. there's just bad videos on stuff. and i just said, you know what, i'm a filmmaker, and i'm survival expert, why don't i put the two of them together. and that's where i ended up like that. and i could do it alone. because if i do it alone, it's for real. right? then, you go, okay. there's not a camera crew that's going -- you know, i'm going to get a chocolate bar from them on day three sort of thing. >> jimmy: you know they would do that. >> yes >> jimmy: come on. come on, give me. give me a bite of your luna bar. >> no reason to be noble on day five. like, hey, my you want to bite this -- no, i can't. i'm surviving.
