President Obama has a brief moment of narcissism when he tells Bear Grylls he’s “pretty ripped” on his upcoming episode of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls.” Watch below!

In a new preview, Grylls asks Obama to sign something for his wife, but pulls out a bottle opener with a figurine of the president on top and tells him, “This was the only thing I could get in the airport… The thing is you look ripped.” Obama immediately cracks back, “I’m pretty ripped, actually.”

The president continues his self-love by declaring he’s “fairly cut,” but also takes the opportunity to poke fun at himself. “It’s possible that bottle opener is a little dated,” he jokes. “I noticed, for example, that there was no gray hair on the Obama figurine. And clearly, the presidency has taken a little bit of a toll.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, Obama’s time with Grylls was filmed in the Alaskan wilderness in September. A previously released clip showed the pair eating a bloody salmon carcass that was previously gnawed on by a grizzly bear. The adventure will air in full on Thursday.

The release of the new teaser comes just one day after David Spade criticized Obama for spending time on a reality show. Watch the video of President Obama talking about his ripped body below and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
