Zac Efron further added: “I’m home for the holidays with my friends and family. Thanks for all the love and concern, see you in 2020!”

In his upcoming survival show, the Baywatch star will spend almost an entire month in a remote jungle with basic gear. The show was announced back in November.

Zac Efron explained about the show, “I tend to thrive under extreme circumstances and seek out opportunities that challenge me on every level. I am excited to explore any uncharted territory and discover what unexpected adventure awaits!”

Furthermore, the High School Musical alum recently starred as Ted Bundy in the movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

Regarding his role, Efron stated, “The most exciting thing for me was being able to sort of lend that Ted Bundy charisma to the part. I hope that’s what comes across the most.” He added that “it’s kinda crazy” how Bundy’s charisma was so intense that many people did not believe that he committed the crimes even after he was found guilty.”
