I was heartbroken I found out that Bear Gryllis didn't actually brave the outdoors and got helicoptered in and out of a very nice hotel

I wasn't heartbroken, I was sort of neutral on the issue. I saw an episode where he jumped into a frozen lake, showing you what to do.

I don't think it's so much the idea for him to brave everything all at once, but rather inform you how to do things if you ever find yourself in that type of situation.
When you saw me sleeping
thought I was dreaming
of you...


I didn't tell you
That the only dream
Is Valium for me

It would re realistically possible to film him 24/7 just living in the outdoors the way you perceive him, but instead he has to do each peice informatively and then move on to the next, if he had to show you how to eat elephant **** and then walk to the ice caps to jump in a frozen lake it would never get finished lol.

That said, the part where he takes shelter in the passed out chick is hilarious.

As if drinking elphant feces juice or turtle blood isn't enough..


Some people just CAN'T watch unless they know for a fact he spent the night in a camel's stomach..

The guy was in the Special Forces, he climbed Everest, he doesn't have to prove how badass he is. Difference between a real documentary (like Survivorman) and a how-to show like Man Vs. Wild.

I never said he wasn't cool, but seeing as part of its original advertising was that he did actually go through the motions of actually getting to where he needed to go to survive without much aide; his interview on Richard and Judy for example also seemed to reinforce this; so i'm perfectly able to say that I was a tad dissapointed when I found out that he did get flown in and out for bits

I personally don't care whether or not he sleeps in a dead animal or jumps in a bog, it's still good television and I do enjoy watching it

Bear Grylls was in the SAS? I, for some reason, would never of guessed. He doesnt seem like the sort. I.e He's not Scottish and he doesnt swear constantly. He's too "nice."

Aye he was in the SAS, but left when his back broke during a routine parachute jump when his canopy ripped

lol, Bear isn't that bad. His show is pretty cool even if he doesn't stay out there. And is it just me or does he seem to have a thing with pissing on himself and drinking piss?

The thing is, that Bear Grylls does some extremely physically strenuous stuff on his show. He said that it's only in preparation for things like this that he gets food from the cameramen or sleeps in their camp.

Yes, Les probably is heavier, because he just sits on his ass all episode.

If I wanted to watch someone sit on their ass for 30 minutes, I'd look in a mirror, not a television. I watch TV to see people do things.

i watch a show called Survivorman to see a dude survive. I used to watch a show called Man Vs Wild where the dude came off like a badass but got caught sleeping in the lap of luxury while he was suppose to be surviving . Id rather see someone whos real.

I didn't find it all that funny, apart from the bit where the girl kisses him out of the blue and he just breaks her neck


"remember to remain emotionally distant as these females will break your heart." He has the accent and the mannerisms down perfectly.

Jesus, christ stop arguing about the legitamacy of the show.
