It was just a couple of years ago that CSU alum, Dr. Evan Antin earned the title of 'Sexiest Beast Charmer' by People Magazine – essentially turning the veterinarian into a viral sensation overnight.

Now, over 1.1 million people follow Dr. Antin on Instagram, getting an up close and personal look at his wild side...which he's about to be showing off a lot more come Sunday. That's because the CSU grad is hitting the small screen, starring in his very own show Evan Goes Wild, which premieres February 24 on Animal Planet.

The brand new series will document Dr. Antin, as he travels across the world learning about animals, ecosystems and fauna, while also incorporating his knowledge as a veterinarian along the way. Antin's adventures took him to places like Kenya and Sri Lanka, where he did everything from running with rhinos to swimming with whales. The show aims to increase awareness about protecting animals and nature.
