Things don't get any easier when Bear is stung by a jellyfish, forcing Mel to employ some unusual first aid skills. Along the way, Mel details her humble upbringing, an exclusive take on the Spice Girls' triumph, and reveals the grit and determination that allowed her to conquer the world.
Plucked from a medieval tower along the Corsica coastline, Bear and Super Bowl Champion Marshawn Lynch are dropped deep in a rugged mountain range where they navigate cliffs, dark chasms, and come face-to-face with the secretive French Foreign Legion.
