Kerry Sanders was literally on top of the world as he took the polar plunge into the icy waters of the North Pole. Brrr!

Sanders tagged along with alligator grabbers and stars of the Animal Planet show, "Gator Boys," and tried his luck at pinning one of the scaly creatures down. 

While reporting on U.S. Special Forces protecting endangered animals from being killed, Sanders got a hefty push from a rhino.
